Cal State Fullerton men’s soccer midfielder Ian Ramos was named Big West Conference Offensive Player of the Week on Monday.
His superb play contributed to an unbeaten week for the Titans as they had wins over conference rivals Cal State Northridge and UC Riverside.
Going into the week, Ramos had two goals and three points to go along with seven points on the season. In wins over the nationally ranked Highlanders and Matadors, he had four goals and an assist, including a three-goal performance against CSUN that lifted the Titans back from a 4-1 deficit.
The Matadors scored their fourth goal of the contest just seconds into the second half, but then Ramos caught fire. He scored two goals just seven minutes apart to bring CSUF to within a goal.
Once senior defender Jameson Campbell tied the score, Ramos, the eventual game-winner, converted a penalty kick in the 71st minute.
Against the Highlanders, the sophomore netted a goal and an assist in CSUF’s 3-2 double-overtime victory. He scored on another penalty kick and assisted on Campbell’s first goal of the match in the 69th minute to finish his nine point weekend.
Ramos is now second on the squad with six goals and 15 points. He also shares the assist total with three others and leads the team with 32 shots.
