Paris Named Ivy League Player Of Week
Scored Game-Winner In Double Overtime Against Penn
NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Charlie Paris scored what to this point is the biggest goal of the season for the Yale men's soccer team on Saturday against Penn. Monday, he was rewarded by being named the Ivy League Player of the Week.
Paris' goal 4 minutes, 37 seconds into the second overtime period lifted the Bulldogs to a crucial 2-1 victory over the Quakers. The win kept Yale in second place in the Ivy League, one point behind Cornell.
The game-winning goal was Paris' second of the league season as he also tallied the winner against Dartmouth.
After playing in only a total of six games in his first three seasons, Paris has emerged as a big scoring threat this fall. He has played in all 14 games and has three goals, which is tied for second on the team.
Yale returns to action on Saturday at Columbia. Kickoff is slated for 4 p.m.
