Male Athlete of the Week – Jordi Amores, men’s soccer
Jordi Amores of the Niagara College men’s soccer program has been named this week’s male athlete of the week. Amores notched a pair of goals during the Knights 3-1 playoff victory over the University of Toronto-Mississauga Eagles on October 22nd.
The fourth year native of Niagara Falls has been an anchor for the Knights this season. And on Sunday, the former Holy Cross standout was at his best converting twice, first on a free kick in the 7th minute that he bent around the defensive wall, and then again in the 58th minute when he converted off a pass from Carlos Williams from just inside the 18 yard box.
Amores will look to continue his red hot play this week when the Knights travel to the OCAA Championship being hosted by Fleming College. The Knights open the three day event on October 26th when they take on the George Brown Huskies.
