BERKELEY - California senior defender Tyson Wahl has been named the Pac-10's Men's Soccer Player of the week for Sept. 6-12, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.
Wahl scored the game-winning goal in the 47th minute off a penalty kick in Friday's 3-0 victory over Vanderbilt, marking the first game-winner of his career. The Newport Beach native also assisted on senior forward Pieter Berger's goal just 10 minutes later, which was the second goal of the game.

With one victory and a tie last week, the Bears improved their overall record to 3-0-1 and are ranked No. 6 in the latest version the NSCAA poll.
This is Wahl's first weekly honor and the eighth all-time player of the week nomination for the Bears.
