Mols Named Sun Belt Defensive Player of the Week

LEXINGTON, Ky. – Freshman keeper Casper Mols was named Sun Belt Conference Defensive Player of the Week, the conference announced on Tuesday.

Mols has recorded eight saves in three matches with over 260 minutes recorded in the net. The Aabernaa, Denmark native holds a 2-0-1 record at the start of his first year with the Wildcats.

“Really happy for Casper,” said Head Coach Johan Cedergren. “He is a top-level goalkeeper who has worked very hard. He is a big part of our result against Marshall.”

In last Friday’s match against the No. 7 Thundering Herd, Mols recorded four big saves to keep the opponent to only one goal scored in 90 minutes of regulation. His poise in the goal helped earn the Cats a draw to start Sun Belt Conference play for the season.

“He is very mature for a freshman and does a great job as part of one of the best back fives in the country,” stated Cedergren.

The Wildcats will return to The Wendell & Vickie Bell Soccer Complex tonight to host No. 21 Lipscomb at 7:30 p.m. ET.
