Men's Soccer, 2013-10-23

(BAY CITY, Mich.) - Walsh University senior Chris Lynch (Bellbrook, Ohio/HS) has earned the GLIAC Men's Soccer Offensive "Athlete of the Week" award for his hat trick performance against Findlay this past Sunday.

The three goals led the Cavs in a 4-2 win over the Oilers. The first goal came on a throw-in from the right side and saw Lynch jump up and head the ball into the right side of the goal to give Walsh a 1-0 lead at 6:47. His second goal was on a nearly identical setup, but this time Lynch headed the ball into the left side of the net for a 3-0 lead just before the half. After the Oilers scored late in the second half to make the score 3-2, Lynch put the game away with a hard shot from near the top right corner of the box to left side of the goal 21 seconds later.

Lynch currently leads the Cavs in goals with five and points with 11. It was his first hat trick in his collegiate career.

The Cavaliers will return to the pitch to host Lake Erie College this Friday. Kick-off is set for 7 p.m.
