ANTIGONISH: Dan Hayfield of the StFX X-Men soccer team recently received some major honours as he was named both the Subway Atlantic University Sport Male Athlete of the Week and the U SPORTS Male Athletes of the Week. Both accolades were for the week ending October 22.
A third-year arts student from Exeter, England, Hayfield had four points in a pair of weekend wins at home which helped the X-Men clinch second place in the AUS standings and a bye through to the semi-final round of the playoffs.
He notched two goals, including the game winner, and added an assist in StFX’s 4-0 win over the Mount Allison Mounties Saturday (October 21).
On Sunday (October 22) he scored the lone goal in the X-Men’s 1-0 win over the Dalhousie Tigers.
With one week of regular season play remaining, Hayfield currently leads the AUS in goals with 12 on the season.
