Lavery Named SCAC Defensive POTW

Oglethorpe University senior defender Mark Lavery of Woodstock, Ga. has been named the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference men's soccer Defensive Player-of-the-Week for games played September 5 - 11.

Lavery was outstanding for the Petrels all weekend long in protecting the back line in wins over Rowan and Methodist. The senior was instrumental in anchoring a defense that allowed just four shots on goal in two victories over the weekend including a 4-0 shutout against Rowan en route to claiming the 2011 Sonny Carter Invitational hosted by Emory University. Lavery also scored a goal and dished an assist for three points and was named the Sonny Carter Invitational MVP for his exploits on the pitch.
