JBU Soccer Player Named Region VI Player of the Week

Siloam Springs, Ark (September 22, 2000) — John Brown University junior, Leo Peirano, adds Region VI Player of the Week to his list of honors. Peirano, a native of Monevideo, Uruguay, was a NAIA All-American selection last season as a sophomore for the Golden Eagles. This past week he scored five goals while leading JBU to two victories, including an overtime game winner versus Northeastern State University. His goal total for the season is now eleven, in only five games.

Peirano looks to continue his attack on opponent goalkeepers this weekend in the John Brown University Fall Classic as the Golden Eagles take on Harris-Stowe State College on Friday, and William Carey College on Saturday. Both games begin at 3:00 p.m. You can follow Leo Peirano and the Golden Eagles' progress this season by clicking on the JBU website at www.jbu.edu .
