Joe Bernstein named Independence Athlete of the Week

Independence goalkeeper Joe Bernstein has been named Independence Athlete of the Week for the week ending Sept. 14. Bernstein helped lead the Blue Devils to eight straight wins and set a new school record for shutouts by a goalkeeper.

Bernstein allowed just six goals in that eight-game win streak while the team scored 46.

He stopped a potential game-tying goal against Lake Ridge Academy with a tremendous diving save and has earned the school record out right for most shutouts in a career by a goalie.
