Midfielder Phillip Aseweh has been named to the Soccer America Men's Team of the Week.

After already earning the Big South Conference Attacking Player of the Week honor, Liberty senior midfielder Phillip Aseweh has added national recognition for his play last week by being named to the Soccer America Men's Team of the Week (CollegeSoccerReporter).

Aseweh scored three goals and recorded an assist last week, as Liberty defeated No. 10 Virginia, 2-0, and Howard, 4-0.  The three goals were the first markers of the season for the midfielder from Navrongo, Ghana.

Last Tuesday, Aseweh scored his first goal of the season in Liberty's win at Virginia. The midfielder took a pass in transition and buried a shot into the far right corner of the net to give the Flames a 2-0 lead in the 75th minute, en route to their victory over Virginia.

The midfielder followed it up with five points in a 4-0 win over Howard, Friday. He assisted on the game's first goal, stepping in front of a clearing pass and quickly dropping a pass to Timothy Bullock for the score. In the second half, Aseweh scored twice in a three-minute span, scoring on a rebound of a shot and later, converting a penalty kick. The point total was the midfielder's most points in a contest since posting seven in his first game with the Flames in a 10-1 win over Concord, Sept. 1, 2009.

Last night, the senior recorded four points, with his fourth goal of the season and two assists in Liberty's 9-0 win over Southern Virginia. With two assists in the contest, Aseweh continues to move up the Liberty career assist list. The senior climbed into sixth place on the program's helper list with 18 assists.

The midfielder leads the 5-1 Flames, with 13 points.  Aseweh has collected four goals and five assists so far this season.

Liberty will host the Cedarville Yellow Jackets, Friday at Osborne Stadium.  Match time is scheduled for 4 p.m.
