ATTLEBORO, Mass. – Elms College sophomore Babba Jaden (Clarkston, Ga.) was selected as the New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) Men's Soccer Player of the Week, announced by the conference office Monday. This is the first player of the week recognition for Jaden in his Blazer career.
Jaden helped power the Blazers to a pair of crucial victories last week, posting seven points with three goals, including two game-winners, with an assist. During a non-conference clash with Curry, Jaden dished out an assist on the Blazers first goal, and then netted the game-winning goal en route to the 2-1 victory. In the Blazers' NECC opener against Mitchell, Jaden rallied the Blazers from a one-goal deficit with a pair of second-half strikes to lift Elms over the Mariners, 2-1.
Jaden and the Blazers will return to the pitch with a non-conference clash against Worcester State Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. at Leary Field.
