Junior defender Raphaël Crivello and sophomore midfielder Filip Mirkovic were named to TopDrawerSoccer’s Team of the Week for their performance in Pitt’s 4-0 shutout of Hofstra in the NCAA Tournament Third Round Saturday.
Crivello had a career day against the Pride, scoring two of Pitt’s four goals for the first multi-goal game of his career. He has a career-best eight points with three goals and two assists this season.
Mirkovic registered the first goal – and eventual game-winner – of the game in the 40th minute, putting the Pitt up 1-0 right before halftime. He assisted Crivello’s first goal of the game, putting his season point total to 11 (3 goals, 5 assists). Mirkovic has one goal and two assists in the NCAA Tournament so far.
The TopDrawerSoccer Team of the Week award is the sixth for the Panthers this season. Since the start of the 2020 season, a Panther has received the weekly honor 22 times. This is the first weekly award for both Crivello and Mirkovic.
No. 5 seed Pitt heads to No. 4 seed Notre Dame Saturday, Dec. 4 for the NCAA Tournament Quarterfinal. This is the third meeting between the Panthers and Fighting Irish this season and sixth in the past two seasons. Kick-off is slated for 5 p.m.
