Arnone wins CAC Defensive Player of the Week award

SALISBURY, Md. – The Capital Athletic Conference announced its weekly awards on Monday, and Salisbury University senior Casey Arnone was named the women's soccer Defensive Player of the Week.

Arnone's defensive efforts permitted Marymount (Va.) University only one shot on goal on Tuesday and assisted Salisbury with staying ahead during the whole game in the 4-0 victory.

She scored the first goal of the game almost four and a half minutes into the contest against Marymount, contributing offensively in the shutout effort. Tabitha Brown took a shot that deflected off the crossbar and Arnone was able to capitalize on the tricky ball, heading it into the back of the net.

The award is Arnone's first-career Defensive Player of the Week award, and it marks the team's second Defensive Player of the Week of the season.

The Sea Gulls will continue their season and host a contest against St. Mary's College of Maryland on Wednesday, October 7 at 4 p.m.
