Men's Student-Athlete of the Week: Beto Velasquez, Soccer

Senior forward Beto Velasquez continued his scoring ways for the Matadors last week, scoring his first two goals of the season. Against UNLV on Friday afternoon, Velasquez scored the first goal of the match in the eighth minute of play when he finished off a cross from Edwin Rivas into the open net.

On Sunday night against No. 11 UCLA, Velasquez tallied the first goal for the Matadors again when his shot from the left side of the post clipped a defender and beat the goalkeeper at the far post. The Panorama City, Calif., native has recorded at least one point in five of CSUN's eight matches this season. He currently leads the Big West Conference with four assists and has two goals for a total of eight points.
