The runaway Player of the Week is Roberto Ordonez of Cal State Fullerton, a junior midfielder who either scored or assisted each goal the team scored. That began with a hat trick and two helpers in a 5-4 thriller of a win over CSUN. Then, with a penalty to secure a 1-0 win over UC Davis. Ordonez now has eight goals and five assists in his last six appearances, clearly one of the top players in college soccer.
