NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - George Washington freshman Tobi Adewole was named Atlantic 10 Men's Soccer Rookie of the Week for the second time this season, the league announced on Monday. The award covers games played Oct. 21-27.

Adewole tallied the first three points of his collegiate career - all in dramatic fashion - in GW's 2-1 double-overtime win at Rhode Island on Friday evening, extending the Colonials' A-10 unbeaten streak to four.

Adewole scored the equalizer - his first career goal - with just 43 seconds left in regulation to send the game to overtime. Then in the fifth minute of double overtime, he set up Eddie Painter's game-winner after causing a URI turnover in the midfield. After playing 66 minutes against the Rams, Adewole also played 63 minutes at Massachusetts on Sunday and took one shot.

A native of Ashton, Md., Adewole is the first Colonial to be named A-10 Rookie of the Week twice in a season since Michael Rollings in 2005. He earned his first league rookie honor on Oct. 14.

GW (5-7-2, 2-1-2 A-10) hosts Atlantic 10 newcomer and Revolutionary Rival George Mason on Sunday at 12 p.m. at the GW Soccer Field on the Mount Vernon Campus.
