WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Wake Forest sophomore Ema Twumasi was named the ACC Offensive Player of the Week, the league announced on Monday afternoon.

Twumasi finished last week with three goals in two games. He put away the game-winner in the 89th minute of a 2-1 victory over South Carolina, then scored the first two goals of the game in a 3-2 double-overtime win against No. 6 Clemson.

The midfielder has come on strong during Wake Forest's current seven-game winning streak, and is now tied for the ACC lead with seven goals.

Twumasi now has 13 goals through 35 career games after recording six as a freshman a year ago.

He becomes the second Deacon to earn an ACC weekly honor this year, joining Brandon Servania who was recognized on Aug. 28. This week, Twumasi was joined as an honoree by Pitt’s Bryce Cregan, the Defensive Player of the Week.

Wake Forest is back in action on Friday, taking on North Carolina at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary.
