RYAN HUNTER OF TRINITY UNIVERSITY, a senior forward from Albuquerque, N.M., has been selected the SCAC Men’s Soccer Offensive Player-of-the-Week for matches played the week of Monday, September 10th to Sunday, September 16th.
Hunter led the Tigers to a pair of SCAC victories to open conference play over the weekend, defeating both Austin College and Centenary College. Hunter scored in both games this weekend, including the game-winner among a pair of goals in Sunday’s win over Centenary. Hunter knocked in the eventual game-winning goal by breaking up a scoreless tie in the 34th minute of action against the Gents, then iced the win with a 70th-minute goal. With less than five minutes left in the first half against Austin, Hunter drilled a shot into the net to give Trinity a 2-0 halftime lead.
For the season, Hunter is now tied for the team lead with four goals scored this season, and Sunday was his first multi-goal game since a 2016 matchup with Centenary. The opening score against the Gents was his first game-winner this season.
Other outstanding performances in the SCAC:
Senior forward Daniel Krueger of Colorado College came off the bench to lead the Tigers to a win over Texas Lutheran last Friday. Krueger scored all three goals in the 3-1 victory, recording the first hat trick in the program since 2015. Freshman forward Jose Martinez of Dallas scored the game-winning goal in the Crusaders, 1-0, victory against Centenary last week. Junior forward Trey Brittenum of Schreiner scored both goals to lead the Mountaineers to a 2-1 victory against Centenary last Friday. Junior forward Kip Karschnik of Southwestern scored the overtime winner to hand Colorado College its first conference loss of the season and improve the Pirates to 2-0-1 in SCAC action. Freshman midfielder Nicolas Medina of Texas Lutheran scored goals in each match for the Bulldogs last weekend, including a game-winning goal in the 2-0 victory over Johnson & Wales.
