CENTER VALLEY, Pa. - Loyola University Maryland men's soccer sophomore forward Larry Ndjock has been named the Patriot League Offensive Player of the Week, as announced by the league office Monday. In addition, freshman Ryan Tuck was included on the league's honorable mentions list.
Ndjock scored four goals on four shots, including both game-winners, in a 2-0 week for the Greyhounds. The Patriot League Preseason Offensive Player of the Year notched a career-high three goals and six points in a 5-3 win at La Salle on Wednesday to become the first Greyhound to record a hat trick since Glenn Leitch did so in 2010.
Despite being double-teamed, Ndjock, a native of Berlin, Germany, followed up his hat trick by scoring the lone goal in Loyola's 1-0 win over Saint Francis (Pa.) on Saturday in the squad's home opener at Ridley Athletic Complex.
This marks the first weekly award for Ndjock this season, while it's the second week in a row a Greyhound has been honored by the league. Senior back Jamie Libby was named the Patriot League Defensive Player of the Week last week.
Tuck was included among the honorable mentions after playing every minute of the last two matches on the back line. The Stokesley, England, native made a critical defensive save in Wednesday's win over La Salle. He was also a key contributor to Loyola's 1-0 win against the Red Flash.
Loyola will return to action on Wednesday when it heads to Quinnipiac for a 4 p.m. contest.
