For the second time this season, Northwest Mississippi Community College freshman Brandon Carrillo has been selected the MACJC Goalkeeper of the Week, the conference announced Tuesday.

Carrillo tied career-high totals with nine saves last week in a 2-1 road victory at Holmes. The win snapped the Rangers' five-match losing skid and kept Northwest alive in the post-season picture.

Since receiving the honor in week one, the Ripley native has compiled 75 season saves through 12 matches, which is 25th in the NJCAA, with a .714 save percentage.

Northwest (5-6-1, 3-3-1 MACJC) will close out the regular season on Friday, Oct. 21 at 3 p.m. against Itawamba. A win and the Rangers are in the MACJC playoffs.

Brian Lentz is Assistant Sports Information Director at Northwest Mississippi Community College.
