Providence, RI - Sophomore midfielder Nick Elenz-Martin (Encinitas, CA) has been named to Soccer America's Men's Team of the Week after scoring the game-winning goal against #7 Harvard on Saturday afternoon.

Elenz-Martin, this week's Ivy League Player of the Week, tallied his second overtime game-winning goal when he scored 5:45 into overtime to defeat the Crimson, 3-2. After a Darren Howerton (Northboro, MA) flip throw, Elenz-Martin was able to get his foot on the ball and find the back of the net to end the game.

Just one week earlier, Elenz-Martin led the Bears to its first Ivy League victory when he scored the game-winning goal in overtime to defeat the Princeton Tigers, 2-1. Again, it was just five minutes into the overtime when he nailed one into the low right corner of the goal.

Elenz-Martin has helped the Bears to a 9-1-1, 2-0-0 record, as the Bears' are now ranked #5 in Soccer America's Top 25 poll, and #8 in the NSCAA Top 25.
