BRISTOL, Tenn. – For the second straight week, Ben Delisle of the King University men's soccer team has been selected Tennessee Sports Writers Association (TSWA) Player of the Week. Last week he posted another multi-goal game and accounted for three goals and an assist, leading King to a 2-0 week.

The Montreal, Quebec, Canada native started with two goals in a win at Southern Wesleyan University on Wednesday. That was his third multi-goal game of the season and fifth of his career.

Delisle followed that with a goal and an assist in King's 2-1 come-from-behind win over the University of Mount Olive. The junior first had an assist on the game-tying goal in the 55th minute before striking in the 75th minute to give King the 2-1 victory. The game-winning goal is Delisle's second of the season.

This is the third time this season Delisle has been selected TSWA Player of the Week.

The Tornado will be in action again on Wednesday when they take on rival Lees-McRae College at 7:30 p.m. at Tennessee High School.
