Westwood, MA – WPI junior midfielder Franco Bazzini (San Juan, PR) collects his second NEWMAC Offensive Athlete of the Week honor of the season for the week ending on Sunday, Oct. 31st.
Bazzini made his mark in the second game of the week for the Engineers in Cambridge when he registered a pair of shots on frame for the final regular-season matchup at no. 6 MIT. The Crimson and Gray pulled off the 3-2 upset on the road when Bazzini scored in thrilling fashion in the 4th minute of overtime against MIT.
The San Juan-native responded rightfully after missing on a penalty-kick opportunity in the opening minute of overtime play. After his most recent goal, Bazzini has claimed six game-winning goals and this is his second in overtime on the season.
WPI men's soccer has clinched the final spot in the 2021 NEWMAC Men's Soccer Tournament and will travel to Coast Guard in the quarterfinal round tomorrow for a slated 6:00 pm first whistle.
