LANCASTER, Pa. – After tripling his career goals output in the span of two games, Ursinus College sophomore Braden Burns shared Centennial Conference men's soccer offensive player of the week honors on Monday.
The forward, who was named alongside Dickinson's Ward Van de Water, scored three times in a pair of contests for the Bears. He tallied two goals in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to Arcadia before netting the game-tying marker late in the second half of Saturday's 1-1 draw with Susquehanna.
Burns' three goals this season are tied for second in the CC. He is a first-time winner of the conference's weekly award.
Van de Water tallied a pair of go-ahead goals in a wild match on Friday night that saw nationally-ranked Lynchburg escape with a thrilling 4-3 win. The senior tallied the lone goal on Saturday, hitting a well-place strike under the crossbar to lead the Red Devils to a 1-0 victory over Roanoke College.
