Guerineau and Motakef Named Summit League Players of the Week

Guerineau and Motakef Named Summit League Players of the Week

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Oral Roberts' Tanguy Guerineau and Miles Motakef provided the fifth sweep of the #SummitMSOC weekly awards as the Golden Eagles clinched at least a share of the league title with a 3-0 victory over Omaha.

Guerineau collected his third weekly offensive honor in the past five weeks after setting up ORU's first two goals during the victory over Omaha. The Frenchmen now has an NCAA-leading 12 assists on the season, a total that is tied for the fifth most in a single season by a Summit League player.

Motakef tied a Summit League single-season record with his fourth defensive accolade of the campaign. He anchored an ORU defense that allowed only one shot on goal and fended off 12 corner kicks by the Mavericks.
