Hofstra University sophomore midfielder Eliot Goldthorp has been named the Colonial Athletic Association men’s offensive player of the week, it was announced Monday by the conference office.

The Leeds, United Kingdom native record five points in Hofstra’s 2-0 week. He started with a two-goal performance, including the game-winner in a 3-2 victory over LIU last Wednesday and followed that up by assisting on the only goal in a 1-0 CAA victory at Monmouth University.

Goldthorp leads the Pride and the CAA in scoring with three goals and one assist for seven points in five games this season.

Hofstra (3-2, 1-1 CAA) returns to action, hosting Northeastern University on Saturday at 7 p.m.
