UNO freshman Christian Garcia was named Summit League offensive player of the week on Monday.

Garcia, an El Paso, Texas native, had a hand in all three goals in Sunday’s 3-0 win at Eastern Illinois. The forward had two goals and one assist.

His five-point performance matched the school record, and his 10 shots in the match were a school best. He also had four shots on goal to tie the school mark.

Garcia opened the scoring in the 26th minute by taking a through ball from Chava Garcia and beating the goalie from seven yards out on the right side. Garcia then assisted on a goal in the 53rd minute, and he capped the scoring in the 84th minute.

Denver goalkeeper Oliver Brown collected the Summit League Defensive Player of the Week award.
