Tallied Three Goals In Victory Over Sacred Heart

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Peter Jacobson had one of the top offensive performances in nearly a decade for the Yale men's soccer team in last week's victory over Sacred Heart. Monday, he was rewarded by being named the Ivy League Player of the Week.

Jacobson, a senior from Ann Arbor, Mich., scored three goals in the 4-1 win over the Pioneers. It was the first hat trick for a Yale player since Alex Munns '07 in 2004.

Jacobson, who also tallied an assist in the game, opened the scoring by heading in a Henry Albrecht free kick at 20:05. With score tied at 1-1 early in the second half, Jacobson was pulled down in the box and converted the penalty kick to give the Bulldogs the lead for good. He set up Yale's third goal and then capped the scoring with a little over 20 minutes remaining when he one-timed a Jenner Fox cross into the back of the net.

Jacobson, an honorable mention All-Ivy selection as a sophomore, now has 15 goals in his career.

The Bulldogs head to California for a pair of games this weekend. They face UC Santa Barbara on Friday and Cal Poly on Sunday.
