BUFFALO WILD WING STUDENT-ATHLETE OF THE WEEK – Ignacio Maganto, Men's Soccer

Iona College men's soccer junior midfielder Ignacio Maganto is the Buffalo Wild Wings Student-Athlete of the Week after earning his third MAAC Offensive Player of the Week recognition of the season as the Gaels secured two conference victories this past week.

Maganto scored three goals over two games for the Gaels, including two game winners. Against Marist, Maganto had two goals. Maganto would find the net for the first time in the 23rd minute, putting away a shot from 15 yards out into the left side of the goal following a lead pass from teammate Franklin Castellanos. Maganto would then deflect a header from inside the box in the 36th minute as Iona ran away with the win.

Against Niagara, Maganto connected from 12 yards out for the game winner less than a minute into overtime, as Iona topped the Purple Eagles 1-0. The goal was Maganto's conference leading ninth tally of the season and seventh in his last five contests.
