Hat trick leads to GPAC weekly honors

SEWARD, Neb. – Freshman Tyler Jensen received GPAC/Hauff Mid-America Sports Men’s Soccer Offensive Player of the Week honors announced Tuesday, Sept. 22. After Jensen’s outstanding performance vs Sterling College in Colorado, scoring three of CUNE’s four goals, the freshman picks up his first player of the week award.

Last week, Jensen recorded not only his first collegiate goal, but also his first hat trick. The goals came in the last half of the tilt with Sterling College Saturday, Sept. 19. The freshman took five shots in the contest coming off the bench. Jensen also saw action in Sunday’s match vs Johnson & Wales University.

On the season, Jensen has tallied three goals which is tied for the second-best on the Bulldog squad. The Renton, Wash. native has taken seven shots this season, three on goal. Seeing action in all seven contests this season, Jensen is tied for 12th place in the GPAC for total goals this season.

The last time the men’s Bulldog team picked up a weekly honor was Oct. 28, 2014 when Brendan Buchanan received his third honor of the season.

The Concordia men’s soccer team (5-2) will be back in action on Saturday, Sept. 26. The Bulldogs will face Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa for a 7:15 kickoff.
