Brendan Nemes

Westwood, MA --- WPI senior Brendan Nemes (Kingston, MA) has been honored as the NEWMAC Men's Soccer Offensive Athlete of the Week.

Also named the WPI Men's Student-Athlete of the Week, Nemes notched both goals in a crucial 2-1 overtime win versus Coast Guard on Saturday. The senior leveled the game in the 78th minute and deposited the game-ender with 56 seconds left in the first extra session. It was also Nemes' second consecutive NEWMAC game with a pair of goals.

Nemes joins sophomore Paul Beatty (Halifax, MA) and senior Reese Petersen (Springfield, NJ), who were offensive (Sept. 18) and defensive (Sept. 25) selections earlier this season. Springfield senior Cam Powell (Housatonic, MA) was lauded as the NEWMAC Men's Soccer Defensive Athlete of the Week.

Men's Soccer (9-4, 5-0 NEWMAC) hosts Fitchburg State Wednesday at 7pm and has an important meeting with the nationally-ranked Pride (13-0, 5-0) Saturday at 7pm in Alumni Stadium.
