2. MEN'S AWARDS: Wake's Valentin earns honors


Twice defender Julian Valentin scored to give streaking Wake Forest 1-0 road wins over Soccer America Top 25 teams and earn Soccer America Men's Player of the Week honors.

The Lancaster, Pa., native notched the golden goal in the 103rd minute at Connecticut, heading in a free kick from senior Ryan Solle.  Three days later, the former U.S. U-17 scored the lone goal in Wake's win at then-No. 3 North Carolina.

The Demon Deacons (12-2-1) are ranked third in the latest Soccer America Men's Top 25.
