Fredericksburg, Va. – Sophomore forward Isaac Ekobo (Hyattsville, Md./Thomas Stone) became the second Seahawk men’s soccer player to earn Capital Athletic Conference Player of the Week honors this season. Ekobo picked up the Offensive Player of the Week award for the week of October 1. This is his second conference weekly honor of his career as he garnered the same honor last fall on September 11.
The 5-8 forward claimed this week’s accolades after helping the St. Mary’s College of Maryland men’s soccer team post a 2-0 week with road wins over Washington Adventist University and Southern Virginia University. Ekobo notched two goals, including a game-winning goal, and an assist for a team-best five points.
He started the week with his first multiple-goal performance of his career as Ekobo scored twice, including the game-winner, in the 3-1 win over Washington Adventist. In the Seahawks’ conference-opening 6-0 win over Southern Virginia, he assisted on the team’s third goal.
Ekobo is tied for sixth in the CAC with 10 points and tied for seventh with four goals.
The Seahawks (7-1-2) will be back in action on Tuesday, October 2, hosting The Catholic University of America in non-conference action in Seahawk Stadium at 4:00 p.m.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at [email protected]
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
