Beaver, a junior forward, scored three times in two games, including two game-winning goals, to lead Franklin & Marshall to a pair of victories to open the year. Beaver notched both scores in the Diplomats' 2-1 triumph over No. 8 Oneonta St. on Friday, before registering the game's lone goal in F&M's 1-0 victory against Covenant on Saturday. With the two game-winners, Beaver becomes F&M's all-time leader in game-winning goals with 11. Muhlenberg's Cody Antonini joined Beaver in earning Offensive Player of the Week accolades.
