ST. LOUIS, Mo. - The American Midwest Conference recently announced its men’s soccer weekly award winners for the week ending October 2, 2016 and for a second straight week the honor went to a Freed-Hardeman men's soccer player.

Following last week's impressive outing, which saw Lion senior Alex Meany take home Player of the Week honors, this time it was George Achard's turn. Achard, a 5-10 junior forward from Florence, Ala., scored only one goal on the week, but he made it count.

With his team trailing by a goal in the 89th minute against William Woods University, Achard sent a shot in from well outside the box that found the back of the net, tying the score at 1-1.

The goal, his second of the season, forced overtime, and in the extra session, the Lions found a way to beat the Owls 2-1.

The Player of the Week honor marks Achard's first of the season. For more information on the award, visit the American Midwest Conference website at www.amcsportsonline.com
