BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—Junior Claudio Lipp and sophomore Louis Fagelson have been named the Southern Athletic Association Men's Soccer Players of the Week, the league office announced today.

Lipp, a midfielder from Deutschlandsberg, Austria, was named Offensive Player of the Week. He scored twice in BSC's 2-1 double-overtime win against Millsaps on Saturday, including the game-winner with 3:11 left on the clock. They were his second and third goals of the season, and he now has three goals and two assists for eight points. It was Lipp's second SAA weekly honor of the season.

Fagelson, a goalkeeper from Johnson City, Tenn., was named Defensive Player of the Week. He recorded seven saves on Saturday after playing the entire 106+ minutes, allowing only one goal while facing 14 shots, nine of those on-goal.

The Panther men's soccer team is on the road this weekend, traveling to face Rhodes on Saturday at 3 p.m. in Memphis.
