The American Rivers Conference has announced that Luther College defender Tristan Davenport has been named the Defensive Player of the Week for the week ending Sunday, Sept. 2.
Davenport helped lead Luther to a 2-0 start during the opening weekend of the 2018 campaign. The Norse defeated St. Scholastica 2-1 and UW-Superior 2-0.
In the UW-Superior match, Davenport scored both goals. Davenport found the back of the Yellowjackets net off a corner kick at 12:59 and produced the insurance goal in the 76th minute off a cross from Teo Jube. His two goals were his fourth and fifth of his career.
Defensively, Luther held UW-Superior to just four shots, none of them on goal.
This is the first time Davenport has been named the league's Defensive Player of the Week.
