Fairfield, CT - Pioneer men's soccer freshman Jesper Fredriksson (Gothenburg, Sweden) has been named the Enterprise Rent-A-Car/Sacred Heart University Student-Athlete of the Week for the week of September 11-17th.
Fredriksson continued his excellent rookie campaign with a 10 point week, including five goals in three games, to help the Pioneers to two wins. In Tuesday's win over Holy Cross he scored the Pioneers first goal and then scored the game winner in the 97th minute to give the Pioneers the victory. Saturday he recorded the first goal of the game which stood to give SHU a tie until the 103rd minute of overtime. Fredriksson opened and closed the scoring Sunday, with two more goals to help SHU to a win over Georgia State in the Nike Classic. Fredriksson now has six goals on the season, the most of any Pioneer.
The Pioneers are back in action Wednesday when they visit UConn. Game time in Storrs is 7:00 pm.
