MILWAUKEE - Freshman Rade Novakovich of the MSOE men's soccer team has been named the NACC Offensive Player of the Week for Sept. 10, the league announced Tuesday.
Novakovich sparked the Raiders to its first two wins of the season, scoring five of the team's eight goals in big road wins at Lawrence and Ripon. After opening his season scoring account at LU Wednesday, he scored all four goals in a 4-1 win at Ripon Saturday. It was just the third four-goal game by a MSOE player since 2004 and is tied for the second-most goals in a game in that time.
The Raiders return to the field Tuesday, hosting Maranatha at Viets Field.
