New Mexico’s Chris Wehan leads list of top performers from Week 3
Redshirt junior midfielder Chris Wehan continued his impressive form to start the season, scoring a pair of game-winning goals to lead New Mexico to wins over Cal State Northridge and previously unbeaten Loyola Marymount in the third week of the college soccer season.
Wehan’s pair of game-winners gave him 6 for the season in five games for the 3-1-1 Lobos. Nicholas Rochowski’s goal against Loyola Marymount is the only Lobos goal that hasn’t been scored by Wehan this season.
Below are some other top performers from college soccer’s third week.

Jorge Gomez Sanchez, Midfielder, Temple
The junior scored four goals and added an assist in Temple’s two wins on the week, giving him 6 goals and 2 assists on the season, and was named the American Athletic Offensive Player of the Week.

Brandon Allen, Forward, Georgetown
After a tough start to the season for the Hoya offense, Allen helped get things back on track with a pair of assists in Georgetown’s 3-1 win over UCLA and scored the 39th and 40th goals of his career in a 5-2 win over Radford on Saturday.
