// Cincinnati State Man of the Match - Alan Rovira
Senior midfielder Alan Rovira assisted on UC's first three goals of the Bearcats' 5-1 decision over Cincinnati State in a friendly over the weekend, earning Man of the Match honors as picked by the coaching staff. Rovira played in two beautiful corners to set up Isreal and junior John Manga (Lexington, Ky./Henry Clay), while also setting-up Manga off a live ball for another goal.
Head coach Hylton Dayes stressed the importance of Rovira's involvement throughout the season.
"We want Alan to be a guy who's involved," Dayes said after the match. "He's so creative. He had a few assists, played well, kept possession well, his positioning was good and he played good crosses. We're glad he was able to figure so much in the result."
