Women's Soccer Weekly Release - Week 5

Complete Women's Soccer Weekly Release in pdf format

PRINCETON, N.J. -- The Ivy League women’s soccer teams kicked off the conference slate of their season and Penn, Columbia, Princeton and Dartmouth each got off to a solid start by winning their Ivy openers.

The Quakers handed defending League champion Harvard a 1-0 loss, scoring on a corner kick in the waning moments of regulation. Quakers sophomore Kaitlyn Moore waited until the last second to net her first career goal, actually the fourth-to-last second, scoring with 3.9 seconds remaining to break a scoreless tie. The winner of this game has gone on to win the League each of the last three years and Penn certainly hopes that plays out this season as well.

Columbia handed Cornell a 1-0 loss and Princeton and Dartmouth defeated Yale and Brown, respectively, by matching 2-1 scores. In non-conference action, the Bears held off UMass, 1-0, while Dartmouth recorded its highest margin of victory since a 7-0 win over Vermont in 2010 with a 5-0 shutout over NJIT. The Big Green has won four in a row and its only two losses have been to ranked teams, No. 9 UCF and No. 21 Rutgers.

Week six features more Ivy play, as Penn faces Cornell on Sept. 28, while on Sept. 29, Dartmouth takes on Princeton, Yale plays Harvard and Columbia battles Brown.

PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Princeton senior Jen Hoy (Sellersville, Pa.) posted her second hat trick of the season and the third of her career with three goals against Lafayette in a 5-2 Tigers win. She moved into fourth-place on the school’s career goals list with 27 and fifth-place on the program’s career points list with 61.

Hoy, who also was named Player of the Week on Sept. 3, is the first Tiger to receive the honor twice in one season since Esmeralda Negron earned the award three times in 2004. For Hoy, the accolade is the third of her career.

Hoy’s Weekly Stats
2 GP, 3G, 6 Pts., 10 Shots, 6 SOG, 1 GW

ROOKIE OF THE WEEK
Dartmouth freshman Corey Delaney (Chatham, N.J.) did not need to wait long to receive her first career outright Ivy League weekly award. Delaney, who shared the honor with Penn’s Erin Mikolai last week, posted two assists in two games to help her squad to an undefeated 2-0 week, including a 2-1 win over Brown in the conference opener for both teams.

Delaney tallied an assist in each of Dartmouth’s two games and is now tied for the team lead in assists with four. She set up Marina Moschitto’s gamewinner against the Bears with a through ball into the box that Moschitto one-timed to the back of the net. Delaney is the first Big Green to earn two Rookie of the Week honors in one season since Chrissy Lozier in 2010.
