Gibson Named Ivy Player of Week

ELI SOPHOMORE SHARES IVY HONOR


PRINCETON, N.J. -- Yale sophomore Matt Gibson was named co-Ivy League Player of the Week after a 10-point weekend in a pair of victories for the 3-0 Bulldogs.

Gibson, who shared the honor with Cornell senior Ryan Hurley, led the Elis to a 13-12 win over No. 12 UMass last Friday with five goals and two assists. He notched the winner with 34 seconds left. His five goals and seven points were both career-highs.

Two days later in Virginia, Gibson handed out three assists as Yale beat Presbyterian College 14-5.

The Bulldogs, who got their first league award this spring from Gibson, are in action next at Lehigh on Saturday.
