CHICAGO – Scoring nine goals and posting two assists in helping lead the Saint Xavier University men's soccer team to a 6-1-1 record in the month of October, sophomore forward Marco Gutierrez (Stone Park, Ill./St. Joseph) is this year's second recipient of the 2013-14 World Hyundai-Saint Xavier University Athlete of the Month award for his impressive play on the soccer field last month. Gutierrez will be publicly honored with a certificate from World Hyundai Matteson prior to Saturday's 2 p.m. game against Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference (CCAC) foe Roosevelt University (Ill.) at Bruce R. Deaton Memorial Field in Chicago.
In addition to his statistics for the month, Gutierrez was also awarded the CCAC Men's Soccer Offensive Player of the Week award back on October 7. One of his most impressive outings came on October 2 and helped set the tone for his stellar month when he scored all four goals in a key 4-3 victory for the Cougars over conference rival Judson University (Ill.) at Deaton Field. Gutierrez currently leads SXU in both goals scored (10) and points scored (22) this season. His efforts helped the Cougars stay in the hunt for a top seed in the upcoming CCAC Men's Soccer Tournament later in November. Saint Xavier currently sits in third place in the conference standings with a 6-2-1 mark with two regular season games left to play.
