WILMINGTON, North Carolina - UNCW freshman striker Nathaniel Goodwin scored once against Hofstra and assisted on the game-winner against Duke to earn Colonial Athletic Association Rookie-of-the-Week honors.
The Seahawks improved to 4-5-1 with a pair of one-goal wins last week, including a 2-1 decision against Duke, which had won the last four editions of the rivalry. Goodwin set up sophomore Jamie Dell for the game-winning tally in the 84th minute to complete a UNCW comeback.
Against Hofstra, the Seahawks held the lead on two different occasions, including a 2-1 lead in the 83rd minute on Goodwin's second goal of the season. After seeing the game knotted later in the game, the Seahawks were able to claim the victory when Michael Recchia powered home his first career goal with three seconds remaining.
The Seahawks hit the road this week for a pair of CA showdowns with William & Mary on Oct. 3 and Drexel on Oct. 6.
