Big East honors for men's and women's soccer players - 10/6

A good week for both the men's and women's sides as a team - and for players Rachel Daly, Anthony Viteri and Luis Esteves.

A good week for the men's and women's soccer programs at St. John's includes:

A 2-0-0 week for the men; a multi-goal game; a dramatic late victory over Fordham (by the goal scorer who didn't get one of the weekly awards, Gabriel Camara).

A 1-0-1 week for the women's side; the return of the scoring prowess of Rachel Daly against Butler; a home draw against defending Big East champions Marquette.

The Red Storm received three honor roll nods.
