The American Rivers Conference has announced that Luther College freshman forward Faydane Ouro-Akondo (Minneapolis, Minn./Southwest) has been named the league's Offensive Player of the Week for the week ending Sunday, Sept. 23, 2018.
On Tuesday, Sept. 18, Ouro-Akondo scored his first collegiate goal against No. 4 University of St. Thomas, that proved to be the game winner, as No. 20 Luther secured a 2-1 victory.
With the score tied 1-1 late in the second half, Ouro-Akondo broke loose on a ball at midfield, dribbled past one defender and ripped a shot into the lower right corner of the Tommies goal unassisted at 76:53.
The Norse finished the week with a 1-0 road victory over A-R-C opponent Nebraska Wesleyan and are now 8-1 overall.
