Kobe Lie lands national honor for second time this season

POPLARVILLE— The accolades keep pouring in for Pearl River's goalkeeper. For the second time this season — and fourth time in his career — Kobe Lie (Hattiesburg; North Forrest) has been named the NJCAA Goalkeeper of the Week.

The announcement comes one day after Lie was named the MACJC Goalkeeper of the Weekfor a third time this season.

Lie opened the week by backstopping No. 18 PRCC to a 3-0 victory over Gulf Coast. The sophomore turned away all seven shots he faced in the match — including a glove save from point-blank range — to earn his fifth shutout of the year. On Saturday, Lie stopped 11 of 12 shots he faced in a 1-0 defeat at Southwest.

After PRCC's 3-0 win at Meridianon Tuesday, Lie remains among the NJCAA's national leaders. Lie is tied for second in shutouts (six), tied for third in wins (10), eighth in minutes (1,147:26), 10th in save percentage (.879), 16th in saves (84) and 34th in goals against average (0.94).

The Wildcats travel to Meridian on Tuesday night before returning to Poplarville on Friday to play Jones College in the final home match of the season.
