LOUDONVILLE, N.Y. - Siena Men's Soccer's Matt Needham has been named the MAAC's Offensive Player of the Week. The sophomore back from Sheffield, England scored his first two collegiate goals including the game-winner in the Saints' convincing 4-1 win over Atlantic 10 foe Saint Joseph's last week.
Needham scored on both shots he took in Wednesday's win. His tally in the 10th minute proved to be the game-winner and his insurance goal in the 61st minute put the match out of reach.
Needham and the Saints conclude their non-conference road slate with a pair of matches this week. The Saints travel to crosstown rival UAlbany Wednesday (7 p.m.) and UMass Saturday (1 p.m.).
