Kroeger’s 6 goals lands 2 big honors

Tamino Kroeger helped carry the Fort Lewis College men’s soccer team to wins in its final two regular season games.
That kind of effort comes with some recognition.
The National Soccer Coaches Association of America named the freshman midfielder its Division II Player of the Week, while the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference seconded that honor Tuesday.
Kroeger scored two key goals in the Skyhawks’ 5-4 comeback win against Colorado Mines on Friday at home, and he found the back of the net with all four of his shots in a 7-0 victory Sunday at Colorado Christian in Lakewood.
It only was the third time a player scored four goals in a game in school history and the first since current assistant coach Cole Sweetser in 2005.
Both awards were the first of Kroeger’s career.
Regis goalkeeper Connor Adkisson was named the RMAC Defensive Player of the Week after he won both of his starts against Metro State and Colorado Mesa, posting seven saves and a 1.5 goals against average.
