Kyle Bjornethun – Junior – Defender – Seattle University
Bjornethun who is from Snohomish, Washington came up big for the Redhawks when he scored two times in a two minute span with time running out in regulation to give Seattle a 2-1 come from behind win over Oregon State in Corvalis. His first goal came at the 88:24 minute mark after he controlled a ball in the box and slotted it into the back of the frame with an assist from Hamza Haddadi. His second score came at the 89:45 minute mark when he converted a picture perfect header after receiving a cross served in by Michael Roberts.
Bjornethun was also a key factor in Seattle's 2-1 win over Washington before a record breaking crowd at Championship Field in Seattle. David Olsen and Hamza Haddadi contributed the goals for Seattle in that win.
Seattle secures two wins over highly regarded opponents to improve to 7-2-0 year to date. The Redhawks will seek to keep the magic alive and Championship Field rocking when they host Kansas City next Friday and Air Force on Sunday in Western Athletic Conference action.
