Men's Soccer Weekly Release - Week 3
PRINCETON, N.J. -- With two Ancient Eight squads still unbeaten on the season, several Ivy League squads will face tough tests in this third week of action.
Cornell is riding a three-game winning streak and sits at 3-0-1 on the year after wins over Cal State Fullerton and Loyola Marymount last weekend. Dartmouth (2-0-2) is also still unbeaten after going 2-0-1 in three matches last week.
The Big Green has seen its share of extra time already this season. Dartmouth, which heads south to face Kentucky and South Carolina this weekend, has played a League-high three overtime games this season. In 30 matches played by Ivy League squads thus far, eight have gone overtime.
Several Ivies play key nonconference matches this week. Penn hosts nationally-ranked Georgetown on Thursday night in a match that will be shown on The Ivy League Digital Network. Brown visits Indiana on Friday and nationally-ranked Butler on Sunday. Yale visits UC-Santa Barbara on Friday, while Princeton visits Georgetown on Sunday.
PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Yale senior forward Peter Jacobson (Ann Arbor, Mich.) had a seven-point day last Tuesday as the Bulldogs defeated cross-state rival Sacred Heart, 4-1. With three goals and an assist, Jacobson became the first Bulldog to record a hat trick since Alex Munns in 2004. Jacobson had his first goal on a header 20 minutes into the match. He then had a goal and an assist 49 seconds apart midway through the second half to break a 1-1 tie. Jacobson then added another tally nearly six minutes later to complete the scoring and his big day.

ROOKIE OF THE WEEK
Dartmouth freshman goalkeeper James Hickok (Westport, Conn.) earned a pair of solid wins for the Big Green last week. After allowing a pair of early goals, Hickok settled in to help Dartmouth earn its first win of the season, a 3-2 overtime victory over Boston College. On Sunday, Hickok recorded the team’s second straight shutout and his first collegiate clean sheet in a 2-0 win over UMass. Hickok even had a hand on the offensive end, when his long punt was converted into an assist.
Hickok is the first Dartmouth player to earn rookie weekly honors since Sean Donovan almost exactly four years ago -- September 14, 2009.
