SOUTH HADLEY, Mass. – Sophomore forward German Giammattei of the Amherst College men's soccer team has been named NESCAC Player of the Week following a three goal, one assist performance that headlined the Mammoths to a 2-0 week.
Getting on the scoresheet in each of the Mammoths four games to start 2019, Giammattei continued his early dominance in a 3-2 overtime win versus Babson and a 3-0 shutout victory over Hamilton.
After dishing out a helper to give Amherst its first lead of the contest against Babson, the Pinecrest, Fla. native continued to roll four days later against conference foe Hamilton - netting his first career hat trick in just 24 minutes to lift Amherst to its third shut out of the year.
His five goals and 11 points so far this season are both NESCAC highs.
Giammattei and the rest of the Mammoths are back in action this Wednesday, Sept. 18 when they travel to Merchant Marine for a 7:45 PM non-conference bout.
