Stan van den Beld of Northwestern College is this week’s GPAC/Hauff Mid-America Sports Men’s Soccer Offensive Player-of-the-Week. Van den Beld, a freshman, from Voorhout, Netherlands, had a breakout week for the Northwestern attack contributing two goals and an assist in the Raiders two shutout wins over Dakota Wesleyan (4-0) and Midland (1-0) to sit 7-0 in GPAC play. In the Midland match on Saturday, he netted the game-winning goal in the 63rd minute to seal the Raider victory and remain perfect in conference play.

Marcel Lengert of Northwestern College is this week’s GPAC/Hauff Mid-America Sports Men’s Soccer Defensive Player-of-the-Week.

His efforts kept the opponents off the scoreboard and recorded the fourth and fifth Raider GPAC shutouts.
