Freshman Named Rookie of Week

 

PRINCETON, N.J. - Brandon Mangan (Wantagh, N.Y.) has been named Ivy League Rookie of the Week after the Yale freshman scored twice in a come-from-behind, 8-7 overtime win at Princeton last Saturday.

Mangan, an attackman, scored the game-winner 33 seconds into the extra frame and helped the No. 19 Bulldogs improve to 5-1 (1-1 Ivy). Coming out of a timeout, he took a pass near the top of the box and moved toward the goal while being checked. Mangan bounced off the Princeton defender and then fired a low shot that found the net.

This is Yale's first league award of 2011.

Mangan, whose five goals are tied for the best among Yale newcomers, has seven points in six games this spring. He and the Elis next play at Penn Friday at 4 p.m.
