Landmark Announces Players of the Week
TOWSON, Md. – The Landmark Conference has released the Players of the Week. The conference will recognize a student-athlete for each sport based on their contributions to their team throughout the season.
|Offensive Player of the Week|
||Merchant Marine (So., F, Holland Township, N.J.)|
||Weldon tallied Merchant Marine's game-winning goal in overtime against Susquehanna to open the conference schedule with a victory and three points. He also recorded the game-tying goal as USMMA came from behind to defeat St. Joseph's (L.I.), 2-1 earlier in the week.|
|Defensive Player of the Week|
||Scranton (Sr., D, Downingtown, Pa.)|
||Kilty helped Scranton post two shutouts during the week with strong play along the backline. He helped neutralize the Misericordia attack in Scranton's 1-0 victory on the road on Tuesday. His play was a big reason why the Cougars had just two shots on goal in their 12 shots total. On Saturday, he had a solid game in a 0-0 draw at Albright that was played in heavy rain. Kilty and the Royals held the Lions to just six shots while posting their third shutout in the last four matches.
