KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Just one day after earning his first GNAC Men's Soccer Offensive Player of the Week award, Simon Fraser forward Connor Glennon has been named the United Soccer Coaches Divison II Men's Player of the Week. 

Glennon shined in both of the Clan's matches last week, recording four goals and two assists as his team picked up a pair of road victories. The wins allowed SFU to improve to 6-0-0 on the season.

In Thursday's 5-0 win at Mary (N.D.), the sophomore made good use of his only two shots of the afternoon as both of his strikes found the back of the net. He also assisted on two more of his team's goals to complete the busy day. 

Against Oklahoma Baptist in another match away from home on Saturday, Glennon added a pair of goals to his tally as Simon Fraser cruised to a 6-0 victory. 

Glennon enters the week ranked 16th nationally and first in the GNAC with five goals, matched only in the conference by teammate Matteo Polisi. His 13 points on the season has the Vernon, B.C.-native slotted at No. 17 in all of Division II. 

Simon Fraser returns to the pitch for its GNAC and home opener on Thursday night. The No. 3 Clan will kickoff against Montana State Billings at 7 p.m. in Burnaby.
