ATLANA – Wake Forest won four games in the span of 26 hours over the weekend thanks to the play of Demon Deacons sophomore attackman Logan Reynolds, who was named the MCLA Division II Warrior Player of the Week for the period ending Feb. 4.
Wake Forest opened the weekend on Saturday with a double-dip against Georgia Southern and North Florida. The Evanston, Ill., native buried four markers along with a dime against the Eagles before following with four more points (2g, 2a) versus the Osprey.
On Sunday, the Deacons tackled both conference foe Charleston as well as Citadel. Reynolds cashed in for a hat trick and two helpers against the Cougars before completing the four-game run with four goals and an assist against the Bulldogs.
For the weekend, Reynolds amassed 13 goals to go along with six assists.
“We had lots of questions about who would step up and be a leader on such a young attack line and Logan answered those question, as both an initiator and a finisher,” said Wake Forest coach Brett Hewitt. “Logan allows our offense to be versatile. He’ll dodge from five spots and draw the double from all of them.”
“Being a true lefthanded player, Logan gives us that extra dimension that is hard to imitate. Logan is a player that looks like he is always playing at one speed. He is always in control. He has a calm, patient demeanor and he plays the same way.
“He has amazing stick protection and will work against his defender to methodically draw the double team or free his hands. Logan scored in just about every way possible this weekend. He scored from deep, on the man-up, got to the goal on demand, and had the goal of the weekend behind the back in transition.”
For his efforts earning the Warrior Player of the Week, Reynolds will receive a Warrior Burn XP2-O – a $120 value. Warrior is a proud sponsor of the MCLA.
