A shutout of a nationally ranked team is bound to attract attention.
That was certainly the case this week inside NCAA Division II Conference Carolinas, who named Barton College senior goalkeeper Jens Madsen Hordvik as its Player of the Week on Monday.
Facing a significant shot disparity in the Bulldogs’ season opener, Hordvik stood up to the challenge in posting the 1-0 victory over No. 23 Tusculum College in Greeneville, Tennessee.
He recorded nine saves, including a pair of deflections over the crossbar in guiding Barton to the win over the reigning South Atlantic Conference tournament champions, which also doubled as the first win for head coach Ian McMichael.
