A pair of Nebraska Wesleyan University men's soccer players were selected this week as the GPAC/Hauff Mid-America Sports Soccer Players of the Week. Sophomore forward Brad Fullerton is the Offensive Player-of-the-Week, while junior goalkeeper Josh Miller was the Defensive Player-of-the-Week.
Fullerton (Lincoln, Neb.) scored three goals on the week as NWU posted a pair of 3-0 victories. He scored two goals in the win over Concordia University and added another goal in the win against Dordt College. The sophomore had the game-winning goal in both contests.
Miller (Rapid City, S.D.) posted a pair of shutouts in goal for the Prairie Wolves as the NWU defense continues to shine. For the season, Miller has allowed three goals in ten conference matches. He has not allowed a goal in eight straight matches, with the last goal coming on Sept. 23. This is the second time this season that Miller has received GPAC Player of the Week recognition.
Nebraska Wesleyan has won ten straight matches to improve to 11-5 overall and 8-2 in the GPAC. The Prairie Wolves will put their 10-game winning streak on the line Wednesday night (Oct. 29) when they host GPAC leading Hastings College at 7:30 pm at Abel Stadium. It is the final home game for the Prairie Wolves.
