|MC's Goranson Honored by Midwest Conference
|Monmouth College defensive end Anthony Goranson had one of his best games this season and earned this week's Midwest Conference Defensive Performer of the Week honor.
Goranson played a big role in shutting down the Lake Forest offense in the Fighting Scots' 51-14 win over the Foresters Saturday. The senior stuffed the Foresters with eight tackles, including 4.5 tackles for losses and three sacks for 20 yards. For the season, he leads the team with six sacks for 46 yards and 14.5 tackles for losses for 74 yards. He is tied for fifth with 40 total tackles and is just three sacks from tying Greg Bennett's career sack record of 34 set from 1987-90.
With the win, Monmouth maintained sole possession of first place in the Midwest Conference.
