Ivy League Release Men's Weekly Awards

from press release

PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Cornell sophomore attack Rob Pannell (Smithtown, N.Y.) capped an eight-point day by scoring the game-winning goal with 11 seconds to play, giving the No. 12 Big Red a much-needed 13-12 victory over No. 18 Harvard. Pannell led the Big Red offense with three goals and five assists, registering five of his eight points in the crucial fourth quarter, as Cornell erased an 8-7 deficit to earn its third Ivy League win. In addition to the game-winner, the sophomore attackman also scored the game-tying goal with 2:42 to play in the game. He also caused three turnovers, helping Cornell to cause six failed Harvard clears. Even more impressive, Pannell did not turn the ball over at any point during the game.

ROOKIE OF THE WEEK
Yale freshman defenseman Peter Johnson (Minnetonka, Minn.) shut down Dartmouth's top scorer by allowing him just one goal and the Big Green just three overall in the Bulldogs' 8-3 win. Johnson's efforts helped Yale keep Dartmouth off the scoreboard for the first 37 minutes of the game. He had two groundballs and caused one turnover.

HONOR ROLL
Brown senior All-American Thomas Muldoon (Oakton, Va.) led Brown to two wins this week. He only scored one goal against Bryant, but it was a big one, scoring the game winning goal with 4:56 left in the game to break a 7-7 tie and lead the Bears to a 9-7 win over the Bulldogs. He came back against Penn on Saturday to score three goals in Brown's 12-9 victory over the Quakers at Franklin Field.

Dartmouth sophomore goaltender Fergus Campbell (New Canaan, Conn.) made nine stops and picked up a team-high five ground balls in the 8-3 loss to Yale on Saturday. Five of the nine stops came in the first half and each one kept Dartmouth in the game as the Bulldogs fired away on the Big Green netminder with 13 shots in the first 30 minutes. He also made a couple of key stops and was a major factor in Dartmouth's ability to clear the ball 23 times in 27 opportunities. Multiple times he was able to weave through the Bulldog offensive and push the ball into the offensive side of the field.

Harvard sophomore attackman Jeff Cohen (Syosset, N.Y.), who extended his point scoring streak to 22 games (58-13-71 during that stretch), added a team-high four goals and five points for No. 15 Harvard in a 13-12 loss at No. 10 Cornell Saturday. Cohen, who also added a ground ball, scored four goals on only five shots on target. Cohen netted a man-up goal late in the second quarter and also assisted a man-up goal by teammate Dean Gibbons in the final minute of the third quarter, which gave the Crimson an 8-7 lead. Cohen leads Harvard with 24 goals and is second with 30 points this spring.

Penn sophomore John Conneely (Dix Hills, N.Y.) had two goals and two assists for a team-high four points in the Quakers' 12-9 loss to Brown Saturday at Franklin Field. Conneely is Penn's second-leading scorer this season, with 27 points.

Princeton freshman attack Mike Chanenchuk (Poquott, N.Y.) scored two of the Tigers' four goals against No. 3 Syracuse in the 2010 Konica Minolta Big City Classic at the new 82,500-seat home for the NFL's Giants and Jets. Chanenchuk has 16 goals in first nine games of his career.

Yale sophomore attack Matt Gibson (Point Lookout, N.Y.) scored five of the Bulldogs' eight goals Yale's in 8-3 win at Dartmouth. Gibson is currently second on Yale with 21 goals this season.
