Northwestern midfielder Chris Ritter and Penn State forward Mark Wadid were selected to the Top Drawer Soccer Team of the Week, released on Tuesday. Both Ritter and Wadid earned the accolade after scoring game-winning goals last week.
Ritter was named Most Valuable Player after tallying two game-winning goals, propelling the Wildcats to the Northwestern Lakeside Classic championship in Evanston, Ill., from Sept. 20-22. Ritter's two goals helped shut out Saint Mary's, 3-0, and defeat Fairleigh Dickinson, 2-1.
Wadid scored the lone goals in a pair of 1-0 wins over Robert Morris (Sept. 17) and Duquesne (Sept. 22). This season, Wadid has scored three of Penn State's four game-winning goals, and is currently tied for first in the Big Ten for game-winning goals this season.
Ritter and Wadid were named Big Ten Co-Offensive Players of the Week.
