CASTINE, Maine -- Maine Maritime Academy's Matt Caron (Scarborough, Maine) has been named the North Atlantic Conference (NAC) Men's Soccer Player of the Week, while freshman teammate Pieter Oudejans (Rockledge, Fla.) has been named the NAC Men's Soccer Rookie of the Week.
Caron helped lead the Mariners to a 2-0 week and the Maritime Cup with victories over Mass. Maritime and SUNY Maritime. In the Mariners' come-from-behind win against Mass. Maritime, Caron scored on a penalty kick to spark the comeback, and then tallied the game-winner, while also dishing out an assist. In the Mariners' 2-0 win over SUNY Maritime, Caron earned the assist on the insurance goal.
Oudejans was impressive in the Mariners' 2-0 week. The first-year midfielder tallied the game-tying goal in the Mariners' 4-3 comeback thriller on Friday, and followed that up with the game-winner in the 2-0 win over SUNY Maritime on Sunday, to help the team win the Maritime Cup.
