Jones Named NESCAC Player of the Week


BRUNSWICK, Maine - Bowdoin College first-year Eddie Jones (Scarborough, Maine) has been named the New England Small College Athletic Conference Men's Soccer Player of the Week. Jones led the Polar Bears to a key conference win over Connecticut College, improving the Polar Bears to 4-4 (3-3 NESCAC) this season.

Jones had a hand in all three goals as the Polar Bears earned a much-needed come-from-behind victory at Connecticut College on Saturday, 3-2. Down 2-0 late in the first half, Jones tallied Bowdoin?s first goal - his first collegiate goal - to cut the deficit to 2-1 entering the break. With less than 20 minutes remaining in the game, Jones assisted on a one-touch score by Brendan Mooney before netting the game-winner two minutes later on a blast from 25 yards out.

The Polar Bears will play a non-conference match at Husson on Tuesday evening before hosting Trinity Saturday in another league match-up scheduled for noon.
