Gomez and Rowland Honored as Players of the Week
Aug. 29


Florida Atlantic University’s Sammy Rowland, women’s soccer, and Nikolas Gomez, men’s soccer, have earned the departments athletes of the week honors.

Rowland earned the honor following her valiant offensive efforts on Sunday versus No. 9 North Carolina. With 37 seconds left and a Tar Heels 2-1 lead, Rowland was able to pass three defenders and find the back of the net for the goal. The game ended in a 3-2 double overtime loss to UNC.

Rowland and the Owls are back at home 5:30 p.m. this Friday, Sept. 2, hosting Stetson at FAU Soccer Stadium. The match is the first of a women's and men's doubleheader, with the women opening the night.

Nikolas Gomez scored the first goal of his career and of the season for the Owls in a 2-1 overtime loss to Belmont. Gomez scored in the 33rd minute of the contest after a rebound went in his direction.

Gomez and the FAU men’s soccer team open their home schedule this weekend hosting Niagara 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 2. The Owls will then host Wisconsin on Sunday, Sept. 4, at 12:30 p.m.
