Tigers’ Carrillo nets weekly league honor

Marshalltown Community College sophomore Juan Carrillo has been named the Iowa Community College Athletic Conference’s first men’s soccer Offensive Player of the Week.

It’s the fourth such honor for Carrillo, who won the same award three weeks in a row as a freshman.

Carrillo, a native of Cordoba, Spain, notched his first career hat trick with three consecutive goals during the Tigers’ 6-1 win over Carl Sandburg College on Sunday in Davenport. That outburst ran his total to five goals this season and 19 for his career – tied for sixth-best all-time at MCC.

The Tigers host top-ranked Iowa Western, the defending national champion, at 2 p.m. Saturday on the MCC campus.
