BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Following strong efforts in the season opener against Division I Mercer on Saturday, Reid Chaconas and David Welsh have been tabbed the SSC’s Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week. This is the first weekly honor earned by either player in their career.
Chaconas paced the Florida Tech offense in its matchup with the Bears recording two goals on four shots. The senior netted the first goal of the game and season just 31 seconds after the opening face-off.
Welsh guided the Panther defense finishing with five ground balls and a game-high four caused turnovers in the game.
The men’s lacrosse team is back in action this weekend as the team travels to Missouri to take on a pair of Great Lake Valley Conference opponents in No. 15 Lindenwood on Feb. 8 in St. Charles, Mo. and Maryville on Feb. 10 in St. Louis.
The Panthers’ game with Lindenwood will begin at 2 p.m. CST at Hunter Stadium.
