Kantor has four shutouts this season
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The Florida Tech Panthers received good news Monday afternoon, as junior keeper Julia Kantor was named the Sunshine State Conference Defensive Player of the Week.
It is the first conference award of the season for the Panthers, and the third time Kantor has earned SSC Player of the Week honors during her career.
Kantor, a native of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has recorded three consecutive shutouts for the Panthers. She totaled a career-high 14 saves as the Panthers played No. 8 Barry to a scoreless draw in Miami Shores, Florida.
Kantor then made three saves this past weekend in the Panthers 2-0 victory over Eckerd at Rick Stottler Field, and has not allowed a goal in her last 293 minutes of game action.
The two shutouts gave Kantor four for the season, which leads the SSC, and dropped her goals-against-average to 0.80.
The Panthers return to action Wednesday afternoon as they take on Armstrong State in Savannah, Georgia. Game time is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET.
