Bresnehan Named NESCAC Player of the Week

BRUNSWICK, Maine - Bowdoin College senior Tom Bresnehan (Sherborn, Mass.) has been named the New England Small College Athletic Conference Men's Soccer Player of the Week. The Polar Bears (3-0) are ranked first in New England and will likely garner a Top-10 ranking when the national poll is released Tuesday.

Bresnehan scored the game-winner in Bowdoin's 2-1 win over Colby on Saturday, giving him two game-winning goals this season against in-state foes Bates and Colby. The senior forward has been stellar on the attack in his career at Bowdoin, appearing in 52 games and scoring 16 goals and five assists. His 16 goals rank just outside the top-10 on Bowdoin's career scoring list.

The Polar Bears will return to action on Tuesday afternoon when they play at in-state rival Southern Maine. Bowdoin will travel to Williams College on Sunday.502
