Costa, Pinho Earn Conference Player Of The Week Honors

IRVING, Texas (AAC/SMU) - Gabriel Costa and Kyran Chambron Pinho claimed two of the four weekly American Athletic Conference awards, the organization announced on Monday.

In the season's first set of AAC honors, Costa was named the Offensive Player of the Week after scoring two goals just 15 seconds apart to help the Mustangs down No. 8 Stanford 3-1 last Thursday. The midfielder headed home his own rebound off a saved penalty kick into the left corner of the net at 77:08 to give SMU a 2-1 lead. Not even a half minute later, he broke free at midfield and blasted a long distance shot over the head of the goalkeeper off his line for a phenomenal brace at 77:23. Costa's four shots were tied for the conference lead in shots per match after week one.

Freshman Chambron Pinho claimed the Rookie of the Week honor after playing a significant role on SMU's defense that limited No. 8 Stanford to an early goal and only two total shots on frame, helping the Mustangs upset the Cardinal. In his first collegiate start, he also served the primary assist on the first SMU goal of the season, slotting a pass from the left to Papa Ndoye, who took a shot at the top of the box for a score at 27:26.

The Mustangs take on Houston Baptist this Thursday, September 2 at 7 p.m. CT at Washburne Soccer and Track Stadium.
