Lenoir-Rhyne Sweeps South Atlantic Conference Men’s Soccer Weekly Awards

The South Atlantic Conference announced its Men’s Soccer Players of the Week for matches played during the third week of the 2022 season. Lenoir-Rhyne forward Adrian Martina was named the offensive player of the week, while Lenoir-Rhyne goalkeeper Juan Basabe was named defensive player of the week.

Martina, a graduate student from Avila, Spain, led the No. 7 Bears to a pair of SAC victories on the road last week, defeating Lincoln Memorial (3-0) and Tusculum (1-0). He scored two goals in the win over LMU and netted the game-winning goal in the victory over Tusculum. For the week he had three goals for six points.

Basabe, a senior from Durango, Spain, picked up two clean sheets for the No. 7 Bears last week. In 180 minutes of action, he did not allow a goal and made six saves. Five of his saves came against Lincoln Memorial and he made one save versus Tusculum.
