Connor Maloney Named Big Ten Offensive Player Of The Week

Men’s soccer forward Connor Maloney was honored by the Big Ten as the Offensive Player of the Week after scoring three goals in two games this past week.

Maloney helped the Nittany Lions secure a draw with then No. 22 Akron, scoring Penn State’s only two goals of the game. He continued his hot streak against Rutgers, scoring late in the second half and tallying the game-winning assist in a 3-2 overtime win over the Scarlet Knights.

The senior is currently leading the team with seven goals, but broke a seven-game streak without finding the back of the net in his two-goal effort against Akron last Tuesday.

This is the second time in Maloney’s career that he’s been named Offensive Player of the Week by the Big Ten. He secured the honor during his sophomore season in September of 2014.

This is the fourth time this season a Penn State men’s soccer player has earned a Big Ten Player of the Week honor, with goalkeepers Evan Finney and Arie Ammann racking up Defensive Player of the Week three times this season.

Maloney and the Nittany Lions are back in action Tuesday 7 p.m. against Wright State at Jeffrey Field.
