Categories: clam_chatter Date: Mar 25, 2013 Title: Top Clam Alumn: 3/18 - 24Defense ruled the week.
1. MATT CALLAHAN (Tufts / Senior / Defense)
3/19: 2GB, 1 caused turnover vs. #2 Stevenson, W 7-6
3/22: 3GB, 1 caused turnover vs. Colby, W 14-9
3/24: 1A, 2GB vs. #15 Western New England, W 20-14
Comments: Three games in one week is a rare thing these days in college lacrosse, but Matt and Jumbos powered through, picking up three more wins along the way. This was made especially impressive given that 2 of the 3 teams were in the Top 15 of D3.
2. JORDAN GREENFIELD (Fairfield / Junior / Attack)
3/19: 5G, 1A vs. Quinnipiac, W 11-10
3/23: 1G, 1A vs. Hobart, W 13-10
Comments: Jordan was the only Clam alumnus that came close to matching the amount played and the productivity of Callahan (a former Stag in his own right) this week. Jordan leads Fairfield in goals (21) and points (28), and is tied for second in assists (7).
3. FRANKLIN REIS (Bowdoin / Junior / Attack)
3/20: 1G, 5A vs. Bates, W 12-11
3/23: 3G vs. Hamilton, W 12-5
Comments: Another busy bee this week as the the Polar Bears bounced back from dropping their first two NESCAC games to win their next two and get themselves right back into the mix. Franklin currently leads the Polar Bears in assists and total points.
4. CONOR MURPHY (Colgate / Sophomore / Goalie)
3/23: 10 saves, 76.9% SP vs. Navy, W 11-3
Comments: Conor seems to like the TV cameras because it seems that every time Colgate plays a televised game he outdoes himself. Saturday was yet another example.
5. LUKE DUPREY (Duke / Junior / LSM)
3/18: 3 GB, 2 caused turnover vs. Marist, W 19-11
3/123: 1 GB, 2 caused turnovers vs. Georgetown, W 19-7
Comments: Duke's M.O. has been to start slow and pick up steam as the season goes, and this year seems no different. After starting 2-4, the Blue Devils have now rattled off five straight wins with Luke being right in the middle of the defensive chaos Duke has been able to create for their opponents.
6. ALEX KEIVER (Wheaton / Freshman / Attack)
3/23: 2G, 2A vs. Eastern Conn., W 12-11
Comments: Needing a win after dropping their first four games of the season, Alex provided the spark Wheaton needed to get that ever-elusive first win of the season.
7. TOMMY HARRISON (Denison / Junior / Defense)
3/23: 3GB, 4 caused turnovers vs Wooster, W 10-7
Comments: Tommy, a Denison Captain, has helped anchor a Big Red defense that has yet to allow double-digit goals this season on its way to a 6-1 start.
8. CRAIG SULLIVAN (Cortland St. / Senior / Defense)
3/22: 1GB, 4 caused turnovers vs. Ithaca, W 9-8 O.T.
Comments: The Bombers gave the Dragons of Cortland State all the could handle on Friday, but with the solid defense from Craig and the rest, the Dragons pulled off the overtime win to remain unbeaten this season.
9. CHRISTIAN DALLMUS (McDaniel / Junior / Goalie)
3/23: 22 saves, 61.1% save pct. vs. #5 Washington College, L 12-14
Comments: Again, you'd hope with a twenty-two save performance, your team would get the win. Christian continues to do all that can be expected of a goalie and that's make saves.
10. TREVOR MORRISSETTE (Eastern Conn. / Senior / Attack)
3/23: 4G vs. Wheaton, L 11-12
Comments: Trevor and the Warriors came up just short of keeping Wheaton out of the win column for the season, but his 4 goals were a team-high.
MIKE DELLANNO (Eastern Conn. / Freshman / Attack) - 2G, 1A vs. Wheaton, L 11-12
