ST. LOUIS, Mo. - The Missouri Valley Conference has announced that Drake redshirt junior goalkeeper Rich Gallagher (Lake Bluff, Ill./Lake Forest Academy) has been named the league's Men's Soccer Defensive Player of the Week.  The honor marks the second for Gallagher this season and in his Drake career.

Gallagher turned in his fourth shutout of the season, including his third in conference action, in Drake's 1-0 road victory at Missouri State last Friday (Nov. 2).  The triumph was the first for the Bulldogs in Springfield since 2005.  

Gallagher pulled in four saves in the affair, including a pair in each half, en route to his league-best third shutout of the conference campaign.  

On the season, Gallagher owns 107 saves and has posted a 1.62 goals against average.  In conference-only affairs, he leads the MVC in saves (7.33) and shutouts (0.50) per game, while pacing the league in overall saves at 5.63 per contest.

Drake (5-10-4) visits Peoria, Ill., to compete in the quarterfinals of the MVC Men's Soccer Championship as the fifth-seeded Bulldogs battle fourth-seeded Evansville (9-7-1) on Wednesday (Nov. 7) at 3:00 p.m. in Shea Stadium.
