CORVALLIS, Ore. -- The honours keep rolling in for Canadian striker Emery Welshman.

The Mississauga, Ont., native and Oregon State University senior captured Pac-12 player of the week honours in leading the Beavers (5-2-1) to a pair of victories.

Welshman scored the Beavers' first hat trick in four years in Oregon State's 6-1 win over UW-Green Bay last Friday en route to a seven-point night. Two days later, the 5-11 forward scored in the 102nd minute to break a scoreless tie with UC Irvine.

The weekly honour was Welshman's second of his career.

The Canadian was also named the TopDrawerSoccer.com NCAA player of the week.
