Covers games through Sunday, September 21
Lehigh freshman forward Doyle Tuvesson continued his impressive start to the season, scoring a golden goal game-winner in overtime on Friday night to lead the Mountain Hawks to their fourth win of the season over Stetson, who you may have noticed wearing green track suits in the River End of Saturday's Philadelphia Union game. The goal was the Kennett Square native's second of the season and second game winning goal of his young college career.

Another player with experience suiting up for the Union Academy was a thorn in the side of Stetson in their game Sunday at La Salle. Junior midfielder Joe Farrell scored his second goal of the season and assisted on the overtime winner in the 3-2 victory for the Explorers.
Monmouth junior forward Jelani Williams scored his second goal of the season from a tight angle near the end line for Monmouth, tying the game in the 75th minute at Villanova's Higgins Soccer Complex on Saturday afternoon. Monmouth senior center back Matt Jeffery led the back line in the game, which absorbed pressure and kept the Hawks in it after surrendering only their second goal of the season at the end of the first half.
Defender Andrew Herr and the back line of Michigan State turned in another impressive performance Friday night, shutting out Maryland in College Park for their fifth clean sheet of the season. Maryland goalkeeper Zack Steffen made one save in the game that ended in a 1-0 win for the Spartans. Alex Shinsky didn't play in the game.
Louisville left back Shane Campbell set up an overtime golden goal, delivering a free kick that Nolan Moore buried to beat Boston College in Boston on Friday night. It was Campbell's first point for the Cardinals in his fifth straight start on the season, his first in Louisville since transferring from Penn State.
In other ACC play, Virginia junior forward Darius Madison played 60 minutes off the bench for the Cavaliers in a 1-1 draw with visiting Notre Dame on Sunday afternoon. Virginia went down 1-0 on a penalty kick and red card in the 65th minute but found an equalizer less than three minutes later and held on for the point. Madison, who missed the first three games with an ankle injury, has yet to score a goal on the season and the Hoos have struggled offensively, scoring more than one goal only once in a 2-1 win over UAB on Sept. 7.
Penn State sophomore forward Connor Maloney's back heel assist set up the game-winner in Penn State's 1-0 victory over Ohio State on Sunday. The Nittany Lions are now 2-0 in Big Ten play and 6-0-1 on the season. Midfielder Brandon Savino scored his first goal of the season in Penn State's 3-0 win over St. Francis earlier in the week. It was the first Penn State goal for the junior St. John's transfer. Midfielder Michael Gonzalez made his season debut as a substitute in the St. Francis game. Christian Kaschak played 22 minutes in the St. Francis game and 15 minutes in the Ohio State game.
Maloney leads the team with four goals and an assist and has scored or set up the winner in half of the team's wins. You can see the highlights of the Ohio State game and Maloney's game-winning assist below or on YouTube.
Indiana sophomore defender Billy McConnell started both of the Hoosiers week four games, a 0-0 draw with Butler and a 2-1 win over Rutgers. Indiana's defense has conceded just three goals on the season and the Hoosiers are 4-1-2.
North Carolina sophomore Colton Storm played 90 minutes in the Tar Heels 2-0 win over William & Mary last Tuesday, but played just 25 minutes in their 2-1 loss to Duke on Friday night.
