GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Junior midfielder Matt Hudnut was named NCCAA Division I Men's Soccer Player of the Week announced the organization on Tuesday afternoon. Hudnut is the first Covenant athlete to win an NCCAA honor this season.
The junior from Florissant, Mo., had an oustanding week as he notched three goals, one in each of the three contests, to help Covenant to an undefeated week at 3-0. Hudnut had a thrill for the dramatic as he had two "golden goals" on back-to-back nights to give the Scots wins over Greenville and LaGrange.
Hudnut's first game-winning score came on Friday in the 99th minute of play against Greenville. The score capped a rally as Covenant came back from a 2-0 halftime deficit to claim the 3-2 win. The following night, Hudnut again gave the Scots an overtime win as he scored in the 96th minute to give Covenant a 2-1 victory over LaGrange.
