ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFKnights.com) - On Monday, UCF's Steven Lamberta became the first recipient of the American Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week award. The senior helped the Knights stifle FAU in their season-opening scoreless draw Friday.

Lamberta led a UCF backline that limited the Owls to only five shots, compared to 17 for the host Knights. FAU only mustered one shot on goal. Lamberta logged all 110 minutes in the match as he anchored a defense that held the Owls to only one shot attempt in both overtime periods combined.

The Knights will return to action Thursday, hosting FIU at the UCF Soccer Complex at 7 p.m. The squad will conclude its three-match homestand to open the season Sunday against North Florida.
