Friesen Named USA South Player of the Week for Second Time

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. -- For the second time this season, Covenant men's soccer senior Joel Friesen has been named USA South Player of the Week, announced the league on Monday afternoon.

Friesen was one of four Covenant student-athletes to be recognized with weekly USA South honors this week. Friesen was also named Player of the Week on Sept. 1.

The senior from Waxhaw, North Carolina, scored two goals on the week to lead the Scots to a 1-1 record. Friesen had the eventual game-winner in the 10th minute of Covenant's 2-0 victory over Berry last Tuesday. He recorded his second score of the week in a 2-1 loss at Birmingham Southern on Saturday.

Friesen leads the Scots, and is seventh in the USA South, in goals scored this season with five.
