Men’s Team of the Week: May 4

The second-to-last Men’s Team of the Week sifts through the first couple rounds of the spring tournament as the march towards Cary continues.

And for Wake Forest, sophomore Omar Hernandez is catching fire at the right time. Hernandez had two goals in Sunday, including the decisive strike in a narrow 3-2 win against a tough a Coastal Carolina strike.

He opened the scoring with a sensational goal from outside the box, and then restored his side’s two goal lead early in the second half.

Player of the Week: Omar Hernandez, Wake Forest
