WILMINGTON, North Carolina - UNCW freshman striker Colin Bonner was named Colonial Athletic Association Rookie-of-the-Week on Monday, giving the Seahawks back-to-back weekly rookie honors after Nathaniel Goodwin received the nod on Oct. 1.

Bonner moved into a tie for the team lead with three goals when he scored what would prove to the game-winning goal in the Seahawks 3-0 win at William & Mary last Wednesday. Bonner's goal came in the 48th minute as the Seahawks scored three times in the second half to break a scoreless deadlock after 45 minutes.

It was the first game-winner for the powerful strike from Fulton, Md. His other goals were game-tying efforts against Binghamton.

In the W&M game, all three goals were scored by freshmen as Goodwin and Hannes Schmitz added goals as the Seahawks pulled away from the Tribe.

The Seahawks open a vital three-game homestand on Wednesday with James Madison followed by a Saturday showdown with nationally-ranked Old Dominion. The homestand concludes on Oct. 17 against Georgia State. All three matches are 7 p.m. starts.

All three opponents played in the NCAA tournament last fall and the Seahawks faced all three, in succession, on the road in 2011 and dropped each match by one goal.
