UNCG’s Tattevin Named SoCon Offensive Player of the Week

SoCon Announces Players of the Week

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Freshman Arnaud Tattevin of the UNC Greensboro (UNCG) men’s soccer team was named The Southern Conference (SoCon) Offensive Player of the Week, by the league on Tuesday.

Tattevin led the Spartans offensively to a 6-2 win over VMI in the final game of the regular season. The Rennes, France, product scored the second goal of the game in the 16th minute from an assist by Basile Marc. Marc slipped the ball through the Keydets defense finding Tattevin for the one-timer into the back of the net at 15:48.

The freshman forward then scored the fifth and sixth goals of the game for UNCG in the 59th and 90th minutes, respectively. At 58:52, Colton Sessoms sent a low cross from the right side of the 18-yard box to Tattevin, who split the defenders for a 5-0 lead. The Spartans were able to put one more goal on the board, as Tattevin completed his impressive day, scoring from about 35 yards out to give UNCG a 6-2 victory at 89:02.

Arnaud’s hat trick is his first and the first for the Spartans this season, bringing his total number of goals on the season to six, which leads the team and places him fourth in the conference.

This is the first hat trick for the Spartans since Steven Hernandez on September 2, 2022 in a 5-1 win over Coastal Carolina. This is the fourth Spartan to record a hat trick under Head Coach Chris Rich (Tattevin, Hernandez, Theo Collomb, and Albert Pedra).

Quote from Tattevin

“I’m really grateful for this award. It means a lot to me, and I think it also rewards all the improvements that we have made as a team recently. It was amazing to score a hat trick, I missed this feeling. But, most importantly it was a good game by the team and the fact that we won was even greater after all the tough games we have had so far.”
