Highlight reel goal propels DeFeyter to weekly GPAC honor

GPAC release

SEWARD, Neb. – Midfielder Chris DeFeyter caught the attention of GPAC observers with his highlight reel goal in the Concordia University men’s soccer game at Dordt College on Oct. 4. The impressive play helped DeFeyter earn GPAC/Hauff Mid-America Sports Men’s Soccer Offensive Player of the Week honors, as announced by the league on Tuesday. DeFeyter joins senior goalkeeper Brendan Buchanan as Bulldogs who have earned weekly men’s soccer accolades this season.

DeFeyter tallied three goals last week as the Bulldogs defeated York College, 4-0, and fell, 3-2, at Dordt. The three goals were the first of the season for the Scottsdale, Ariz., native, who now has 12 career goals in 61 games. DeFeyter drew praise for his 28th-minute goal at Dordt in which he played a touch off his shoulder and his head and then drilled a bicycle kick inside the right post. He went on to score once more in the game for his second career mulit-goal effort.

Last season DeFeyter tallied a career high six goals and was named second team all-conference.

DeFeyter and the Bulldogs (6-4-1, 2-1 GPAC) return to action on Wednesday when they host rival Doane (2-7-1, 2-2 GPAC) at 7:30 p.m.
