Nick Dimitrijevic claims PL Rookie of the Week

CENTER VALLEY, Pa. — American University men's soccer forward Nicholas Dimitrijevic earned his first Patriot League Rookie of the Week award after scoring his first collegiate hat trick in a dramatic 3-2 overtime win for the Eagles last Wednesday against Navy. 

Dimitrijevic led the team in shots this week with seven. Six of those attempts came against the Midshipmen where he owned the field en route to the Eagles' first league win of the season. 

With his three goals against Navy, Dimitrijevic took over the Eagles in goal scored. He is second in points behind Tim Neumann who was credited with two assists in the game. 

Dimitrijevic is tied for fifth in the Patriot League in goals and sixth in goals per game (.300). He is one of two players to net three goals in a game this season. 

American hits the road this weekend to take on Holy Cross on Saturday.
