ACC Men’s Soccer Weekly Honors Announced

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Duke’s Jeremy Ebobisse and Louisville’s Daniel Johnson have been named the ACC Men’s Soccer Co-Offensive Players of the Week, while NC State’s Caleb Duvernay has been named the Defensive Player of the Week.

Ebobisse finished the week with two goals and two assists for six points in a 1-0-1 week for the Blue Devils. The sophomore striker from Bethesda, Maryland, scored Duke’s first goal and assisted on two others to lead the Blue Devils to a 5-1 nonconference win over Loyola. The four points and two assists both matched his previous career-highs. Three days later against reigning NCAA Champion Virginia, Ebobisse tallied the game-tying goal for the Blue Devils in a 2-2 draw with the No. 5 Cavaliers. The goal was his team-leading fifth of the season and pushed his season points total to 12. His 12 points this year are the most in the league and are five more than he had in his entire rookie season.

Johnson connected for his first two goals as a Cardinal, scoring once in Tuesday’s win over No. 15 Kentucky and again in Friday night’s draw at Syracuse. A junior midfielder from Duluth, Georgia, Johnson scored in the 28th minute of Louisville’s 2-0 home triumph over the rival Wildcats. Three nights later, the Maryland transfer delivered his second tally of the week, connecting on the game-tying goal at Syracuse inside the final 65 seconds of the first half of the Cardinals’ ACC opener.

Duvernay, a sophomore left back from Cary, North Carolina, scored a 109th-minute golden goal against Boston College to propel the 23rd-ranked Wolfpack to a 2-1 victory in its Atlantic Coast Conference opener Friday night. The goal followed Duvernay’s assist on the Pack’s equalizer in the 67th minute. He cashed in the first goal of his career eight days prior, at Liberty, giving him five points in State’s last three matches.
