SEWARD, Neb. – For the second-straight week, a Concordia student-athlete has earned the GPAC/Hauff Mid-America Sports Men’s Soccer Offensive Player of the Week award. Junior midfielder Chris DeFeyter is the latest to receive the honor, as announced by the GPAC on Tuesday morning. Senior Nathan Douglas garnered Offensive Player of the Week accolades on Sept. 24.
DeFeyter takes this week’s honor thanks to the first mutli-goal game of his career on Sunday. The native of Scottsdale, Ariz., found the back of the net in the 16th and 75th minutes to lead the Bulldogs to a second-consecutive blowout victory in conference play. Concordia defeated Morningside 5-1 in Sioux City, Iowa, on Sunday.
DeFeyter has three goals over the past two games and four for the season, giving him a new career high with nine regular-season games still remaining. In 40 career games in a Bulldog uniform, DeFeyter has seven goals and two assists. The Player of the Week honor is the first of his career.
Concordia (5-4, 2-0 GPAC) returns to action on Tuesday when it will take on York on the road at 7 p.m.
