Sophomore Andy Iro scored the game-winning goal Saturday against Cal Poly and spearheaded a defense that held No. 11 UCLA to just two shots on Thursday to earn Macy's-UCSBGauchos.com Athlete of the Week honors. After a solid but futile defensive performance against the Bruins, the preseason All-American broke a scoreless tie against the Mustangs in the 65th minute with a soaring header off a Bryan Byrne corner to give the Gauchos the first of their two goals on the afternoon. Iro and the Gauchos return to the pitch this Wednesday when they will travel to Davis for a non-conference match with the Aggies.
