NORCROSS, Ga. ---- Auburn University at Montgomery sophomore men's soccer forward Tornubari Nyonebue has been selected the Southern States Athletic Conference's Offensive Player of the Week, the league announced on Monday.
Nyonebue, who helped the Senators to a 4-1 upset victory over No. 16 SCAD Savannah last week, scored one goal and assisted on another in his only contest of the week. The transfer from Newberry College in South Carolina netted the game-winning goal for AUM in the contest, while assisting on the first score of the match.
On the season, Nyonebue leads the Senators in shots with 49 and is tied for the team-lead in goals scored with five. His 11 points on the year is also tied for second on the team.
Nyonebue and the entire AUM squad will return to action on Tuesday, when it opens SSAC play by taking on Spring Hill College. Kickoff is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. from Mobile, Ala.
