HIGH POINT, N.C. – High Point University men’s soccer continues to add names to the Big South’s list of weekly award winners, as senior Johnny Fenwick takes home Defensive Player of the Week nods this Monday.
Having played every minute of the current campaign, Fenwick helped the Panther defense to hold USC Upstate to a single goal in a 4-1 victory, before completing a 1-0 shutout victory over visiting Gardner-Webb. The defender collected the game winner of that match against the Bulldogs, heading in a corner from fellow countryman Ryan Inman in the 30th minute. Fenwick’s tally was his first of the season and the fourth of his career at High Point, as he’s managed to help his side to 23 shutouts over 66 matches played in a Panthers’ uniform.
