GREENSBORO, N.C. - Virginia Tech junior forward Robert Edmans was recognized as one of the Atlantic Coast Conference Men's Soccer Co-Players of the Week for his performance in the week ending Oct. 7. Edmans shares his second weekly honor of the season with Boston College's Alejandro Bedoya.

Coming off the bench, Edmans scored two of the Hokies' three goals in a 3-3 draw with No. 1 Wake Forest Friday night. The double-overtime finish extended No. 9 Virginia Tech's' unbeaten streak to nine matches, which is the second-longest in school history and just one shy of the school record of the 2005 team that went 9-0-1 in 10 consecutive matches from Sept. 27 to Oct. 29.

The Essex, England, native scored his second and third goals of the season against the visiting Demon Deacons in an effort to avenge a 0-2 deficit set within 35 minutes of the match. Edmans currently leads all Hokies with 10 points and is tied with Patrick Nyarko for second place on the team in goals with three apiece through the season's first 10 matches.

Edmans earned his first weekly award from the ACC on Sept. 9 after being named the MVP of the Hawthorn Suites Hokie Invitational. Edmans assisted on the game-winning goal against then-No. 19 Clemson and then notched the game-winning goal and distributed an assist in a 2-1 win against St. John's.

Tech (6-1-3, 1-0-2 ACC) has earned three weekly conference honors this season. Stefan Hock was recognized last week after scoring two goals: the game-winning goal against Richmond then his team-leading fourth goal of the year, in Tech's 1-1 draw at then-No. 4 Virginia.

The Hokies play on the road against VMI at 4 p.m. on Tuesday in Lexington, Va.
