WEST POINT, N.Y. -
The weekly honors continue to pile up for Army sophomore goalkeeper Winston Boldt, who was named Patriot League Goalkeeper of the Week on Monday afternoon. Boldt, who tied his season high with seven saves in Army's 1-1 draw versus Navy on Sunday, was also selected as the Army Athletic Association Athlete of the Week.
Boldt has now captured the Patriot League's weekly goalkeeping award three times this season and four times in his career. He is the first Army keeper to win the honor three times in a single season since the conference began handing out the award in 2006.
The second-year keeper from St. Louis, Mo., made two crucial stops in overtime as the Black Knights held off Navy in the extra time to escape with a tie and earn a point in the Patriot League standings. Several of Boldt's saves came on shots from point-blank range, including an incredible stop on a shot from eight yards out late in the first overtime.
Boldt, who has started 14 consecutive matches dating back to last season, is enjoying a steady sophomore campaign. He currently shows a 1.63 goals-against average and .700 save percentage to go along with two shutouts.
Army (2-6-1, 0-1-1 PL) returns to action on Saturday, Oct. 6, when the Black Knights host American at 7:30 p.m. The contest will mark Army's first home match since Labor Day.
