MEN'S PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Dartmouth’s Alex Adelabu
Dartmouth sophomore forward Alex Adelabu has been selected as the New England Soccer News College Player of the Week for the week ending September 16.
Adelabu scored all three of the Big Green’s goals over the weekend, including the golden goal in the 106th minute of Sunday’s 1-0 win over Missouri State in the final game of the TL Plumbing, Heating and Cooling Lobo Invitational. The forward connected with a pass from Colin Heffron from six yards out, sending the Big Green home with three points. The win snapped Missouri State’s seven-game undefeated streak.
On Friday night, Adelabu scored twice in the first ten minutes of a 3-2 loss to No. 7 New Mexico. IN the first minute, he picked off a bad clearing pass, headed the ball into the box, retrieved it and powered a shot from the left side inside the near post. In the tenth minute, he completed his brace off a pass from Colin Heffron.
Adelabu leads the Big Green with five goals, and was also named the Ivy League men's Player of the Week..
