LANCASTER, Pa. – Franklin & Marshall's Jared Bomba was named the Centennial Conference (CC) Offensive Player of the Week for men's soccer, announced Monday. The honor is Bomba's first of his career and second of the season for the Diplomats.
The senior forward notched one goal and two assists in a 1-0-1 week for F&M. With the score tied at 0-0 in the 79th minute against Swarthmore on Saturday, Bomba collected the ball from a Chris Scott header and sent a shot into the back of the net to give F&M the late advantage. He went on to assist Janse Schermerhorn's insurance tally in the 84th minute for the 2-0 final.
Bomba's game-winner against the Garnet was the sixth of his career, moving him into a tie for third on the program's all-time list. The record belongs to Ben Beaver '13, who notched 20 in his storied career.
The Diplomats return to action tomorrow, facing off against Stevenson on the road beginning at 7:00 p.m.
