RICHMOND, Va. – Junior Elijah Agu of the Elon University men’s soccer team was selected as the Colonial Athletic Association Player of the Week for the second time this season as announced by the league office on Monday, Oct. 17.
Agu garnered his second league weekly honor after the Cary, N.C., native scored three goals in two games to help Elon go 2-0 last week versus a pair of CAA foes. Agu tallied his third multi-goal game of the season with both goals in the Phoenix’s 2-0 victory over William & Mary last Wednesday, Oct. 12. He later added his league-leading ninth goal of the year in another 2-0 result for the maroon and gold, this time at Drexel on Saturday, Oct. 15.
Agu was previously named the CAA Player of the Week on Sept. 5, earlier in the season. He shared league honors this week with UNCW’s Julio Moncada.
Elon is back in action on Saturday, Oct. 22, with a home match versus Delaware. Kickoff is slated for 8 p.m.
