A pair of shutouts has earned Pahoa native Cassidy Dixon a spot in this week’s PacWest Conference men’s soccer weekly awards.

Dixon was named the PacWest Conference’s Defender of the Week for his goalkeeping work in a pair of wins for the University of Hawai’i at Hilo men’s soccer team.

Dixon, a junior, made a career-best 10 saves in a 1-0 overtime victory at home against Brigham Young University-Hawai’i. Two days later, he stopped both shots he faced in the Vulcans’ 3-0 win over Dominican University.

The shutouts were the first two Dixon recorded on the season. He is 2-0 in four appearances in goal for UH-Hilo this season.

Fresno Pacific senior Renato Bustamante was named Player of the Week for his five-point effort last week. Concordia’s Erik Torres was named Freshman of the Week for scoring his third goal in two games against Point Loma Nazarene.


The PacWest’s Men’s Soccer Player of the Week award covers games played between Oct. 12-18.
