Southern Methodist junior midfielder Duke Hashimoto was named the Missouri Valley Conference men's soccer Player of the Week after posting his first career hat trick, and leading the Mustangs to a 1-1 weekend at the Microtel Inn & Suites/Golden Hurricane Classic.

In a 5-2 victory over Yale, Hashimoto, a 2001 graduate of Iolani from Kapolei, came off the bench and had three goals and an assist for the No. 15 Mustangs.

After his career-best offensive outing, Hashimoto scored the first goal of the match in the 22nd minute in a starting role of a 3-2 overtime loss to undefeated and No. 8 Penn State, and was named to the all-tournament team.

Penn State senior defender Kenji Treschuk (Moanalua '00 of Honolulu) assisted on the game-winning goal in double overtime, heading a ball to Joe Zewe in the 104th minute.

Hashimoto almost won the game at the end of the first overtime. He had a good look at the net and tried to put the ball over the goalkeeper's head from about 8 yards, but he hit the cross bar with 12 seconds left.

• Pacific (Ore.) senior forward Bobby Shinn (Pearl City '01 of Waipahu) was named the Northwest Conference Offensive Player of the Week.

Shinn scored two first-half goals and had an assist in a 4-3 overtime win against Pacific Lutheran Saturday, giving the Boxers their first NWC victory of the season.

He leads the Boxers with four goals and two assists.

• UC San Diego senior goalkeeper Eddie Ruhland (Hilo '01) played 65 minutes of shutout soccer, recording six saves, after coming off the bench for the No. 12 Tritons (Division II) in a 0-0 double overtime tie with CS Dominguez Hills on Sept. 22.
