Fredericksburg, Va. – Sophomore forward Isaac Ekobo (Hyattsville, Md./Thomas Stone) became the second Seahawk men's soccer player to earn Capital Athletic Conference Player of the Week honors this season. Ekobo picked up the Offensive Player of the Week award for the week of October 1. This is his second conference weekly honor of his career as he garnered the same honor last fall on September 11.
The 5-8 forward claimed this week's accolades after helping the St. Mary's College of Maryland men's soccer team post a 2-0 week with road wins over Washington Adventist University and Southern Virginia University. Ekobo notched two goals, including a game-winning goal, and an assist for a team-best five points.
He started the week with his first multiple-goal performance of his career as Ekobo scored twice, including the game-winner, in the 3-1 win over Washington Adventist. In the Seahawks' conference-opening 6-0 win over Southern Virginia, he assisted on the team's third goal.
Ekobo is tied for sixth in the CAC with 10 points and tied for seventh with four goals.
The Seahawks (7-1-2) will be back in action on Tuesday, October 2, hosting The Catholic University of America in non-conference action in Seahawk Stadium at 4:00 p.m.
