CHICKASHA – Junior Nicolas Alberto’s game-winner over No. 2 Baker University earned him the title Sooner Athletic Conference Player of the Week.

Alberto, a forward from Paris, France, scored in the 108th minute of Friday’s game to give seventh-ranked Drovers the win in double overtime over second-ranked Baker in the NAIA Game of the Week.

This is the first SAC Player of the Week awarded for the 2012 season. Oklahoma City’s Joe Shulberg was named SAC Defensive Player of the Week.

CHICKASHA – It may have taken 108 minutes, but the Drover men upset No. 2 Baker University in the NAIA Game of the Week.

In the season opener, the Drovers, ranked seventh in the country, battled Baker in one of the team’s toughest games set for the season. During the 17-minute mark, Perry Sansford, a junior from Colchester, England, knocked in the Drovers’ first goal off an assist by Sean McLaughlan.

Leading Baker at half, the Drovers continued to fight but gave up a goal with 20 minutes left in regulation. The game was forced into overtime.

CHICKASHA – The Drover women fought a tough 90 minutes of ball and despite a last minute goal, fell to the No. 6 team in the country: Baker University.

“I actually thought the women played well,” Head Coach Jimmy Hampton said. “We just need to get a bit fitter and understand our roles and we will be fine.”

The Drovers went into the second half trailing 1-0, but gave up back-to-back goals with less than 20 minutes left in the game.
