The American Rivers Conference has announced that Luther College sophomore goalkeeper Carson Davenport (Rockford, Ill./Boylan Catholic) has been named the Defensive Player of the Week for the week ending Sunday, Oct. 21. This is the first time he has been so honored.
Davenport posted three shut outs last week while helping No. 24 Luther to wins over Macalester College (2-0), Coe College (4-0) and Central College (2-0).
The sophomore keeper turned away all six shots he faced last week and increased his shutout total to four and lowered his goals-against-average to 0.87 and is now 9-3-1.
In seven conference games Davenport leads the league with a goals-against-average of 0.73.
