Redshirt freshman Axel Sjoberg of the Marquette men's soccer team took home Best Defender honors at the Thunder Bay Chill awards dinner last week. The 6-foot-7 Swedish stopper helped the Chill post a 13-2-1 record in USL Premier Development League action and capture the squad's fifth Heartland Division trophy in the past six years.

Thunder Bay allowed just 10 goals on the season, which ended with a 1-0 loss to FC London in the PDL playoffs on July 21. It was the lowest amount of goals allowed in the 73-team league.

Sjoberg played in 15 matches with two goals and an assist and was one of the team leaders in minutes played. This was the central defender's first season with the Chill, alongside MU teammates Paul Dillon and Sebastian Jansson.
