PLYMOUTH, N.H. - A pair of freshmen on the Plymouth State University men's soccer team were recognized by the Little East Conference on Monday after leading the Panthers to a pair of victories.
Freshman Bjorn Ohlsson (Halmstad, Sweden) was selected LEC Goalkeeper of the Week while classmate Parker Spear (Sodus Point, N.Y.) was named LEC Rookie of the Week. Both had a hand in PSU's two wins last week.
A 6'1", 178-pound keeper, Ohlsson (right) posted a pair of victories in goal, including his third shutout of the season. He made five saves in Plymouth State's 6-2 win at Salem State and on Sept. 12, stopped each of Bridgewater State's four attempts in a 2-0 victory. The two goals surrendered to the Vikings are the only two allowed by Ohlsson in four matches this season. The weekly award was the second-straight of the season for the freshman.
A 5'5" midfielder, Spear (left) recorded a goal and two assists in PSU's 2-0 week, appearing on the score sheet in both games. He assisted on two goals in Wednesday's 6-2 victory at Salem State, and he scored his first career goal in the second half of PSU's 2-0 win at Bridgewater State to solidify the victory.
The Panthers, 4-0-0 on the season, opens conference play this Saturday with a 1:00 p.m. kickoff at rival Keene State College.
