CAA MEN’S LACROSSE PLAYER & ROOKIE OF THE WEEK
Robert Church, Drexel
Fr., A, Coquitlam, British Columbia/Charles Best
Church earned both CAA Player and Rookie of the Week honors after pouring in a game-high seven goals in helping the Dragons down Hofstra, 13-11, Saturday. Church scored five of his seven in the first half as well as the eventual game-winner with just under a minute left in the game. Church’s seven-goal game, one off the league’s single-game best this season, marked the most single-game goals scored by a Drexel player since the 1996 season. The Dragons’ win over Hofstra was their third over a Top-10 ranked opponent this season (No. 3 Notre Dame, No. 8 Lafayette and No. 8 Hofstra). On the year, Church leads the team with 24 goals in 10 games and ranks second on the squad with 43 total points.
