Two members of the Hobart College soccer team were recognized by the Liberty League office this afternoon for their play in two matches last week. Junior defender Matt Geswell was tabbed the Co-Defensive Performer of the Week, while first-year forward Tommy Hayes was named the Co-Rookie of the Week.
Geswell assisted on all three of seventh-ranked Hobart’s goals in its 3-0 win over 24th-ranked Rochester on Saturday. All three goals began with Geswell’s long, well-placed throw-ins. He also led a Statesmen defense that held the Cardinals and Yellowjackets to a combined nine shots on goal.
Hayes notched his first collegiate points last week, on a goal and an assist in the Statesmen’s 2-1 win against St. John Fisher. Hayes tied the contest at 1-all in the 41st minute with his first career goal, and set up the game-winning tally less than three minutes later.
Hobart will open its Liberty League schedule this weekend holding an undefeated 7-0-0 record. The Statesmen will host Clarkson on Sept. 26 at 4 p.m. Fans unable to attend the match can listen live on WHWS-FM (105.7 in Geneva), or follow along online with live stats.
