Number ones were toppled this week and Clam Alumni were right in the mix. Plus, it seems like Clams score together in bunches.
#1. Scott Austin
Comments: This is one of those games that Scott will always remember: scoring 2 goals in a dominant 11-6 win over #1 Syracuse. Not much more needs to be said about it.
#2. Jordan Greenfield
The Rivers School
Comments: Last week the Stags dropped a one goal game. This week, with 4 goals from Jordan, the Stags made sure they came out on the winning side of a 10-9 game against Hartford. Based largely on this performance, Jordan was named the ECAC Rookie of the Week last week (click here to read more: http://www.fairfieldstags.com/news/2011/4/18/MLAX_0418111930.aspx)
#3. John Lenehan
Avon Old Farms
Comments: At the end of the week, John and the Camels were 1-1, but not because of a lack of performance by John. On Tuesday, John made 11 saves (61.1% save percentage) in a 12-7 win against US Merchant Marines. Then on Saturday, John gave Conn. College a chance to take down #1 Tufts (Tufts was coming off their first loss of the season, but we'll get to that) with 15 saves (71.4% save percentage). Unfortunately, Conn. College dropped the contest 5-6.
#4. Jack Curtis
Comments: Like Scott Austin, Jack won't soon forget his game on Tuesday. It's not every day that you get to knock off a #1 team. Endicott topped #1 Tufts 9-8 with Jack adding a goal to the effort. Unfortunately, the Gulls had a bit of a letdown on Thursday against Bowdoin and came out on the losing end of a 12-13 game; Jack had a goal in the contest. They did bounce back on Saturday with a 14-4 win against Gordon; Jack had 2 goals in that game.
#5. John Jennings
St. John's Prep
Comments: John continues to be the pace-setter for Colby adding 5 goals as the Mules dominated Southern Maine 19-5 on Wednesday.
#6. Brendan Grant
Xaverian Brothers HS
Comments: Brendan and Bentley evened their record up to 4-4 with Wednesday's 15-10 win over Southern New Hampshire. Brendan had 3 goals and added an assist to the effort, and currently leads Bentley in goals scored, assists, and total points.
#T7. Jack Walker (Attack / Phillips Andover)
Eric Slingerland (Midfield / Phillips Exeter)
Comments: In Harvard's 14-7 win over Quinnipiac, Jack notched a goal while Eric dished out an assist in the effort.
#T9. Jeff Rautiola (Midfield / The Rivers School)
Steve Manning (Midfield / The Rivers School)
Teddy Bascom (LSM / Lincoln-Sudbury HS)
Max Alderman (Midfield / Lincoln-Sudbury HS)
Comments: When you have four different Clam Alumni on the same team all have points in a game like this, we have to showcase this! Jeff led the way with a goal and an assist. Teddy and Steve both had an goal while Max added an assist. Unfortunately, Trinity dropped the game 8-12 to #11 Middlebury.
