SEARCY - Harding University junior Connor Galloway was named the Gulf South Conference Player of the Week on Tuesday. He is the first Bison to claim the conference's weekly honor since 2007.
Galloway led Harding to victory in double overtime against visiting Delta State last Friday, 2-1. The Normal, Ill., native scored in the 20th minute, giving the Bisons a lead they held until just over a minute remaining in regulation.
After the Statesmen netted the equalizer and both teams played to a draw after the first overtime, the junior drilled a game-winning penalty kick with 2:40 left in the second overtime and gave HU its first GSC win of the season.
Galloway leads Harding with seven goals this season.
