Cohen Honored as NEILA Player of the Week

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Freshman attacker Jeff Cohen of the Harvard men's lacrosse team has been named the Turfer/New England Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association Player of the week, the NEILA announced Monday afternoon.

Cohen extended his goal streak to 10 straight games by netting three scores in No. 18 Harvard's 8-5 win at Dartmouth Saturday. Cohen, who had six hat tricks in his rookie season, including three in a row to close out the spring, led the Crimson with 34 goals, the ninth most ever for a Harvard player in a single season and the most by a Crimson freshman.

Against the Big Green, Cohen scored once in each of the first three quarters. His goal early in the third gave Harvard its first lead of the day, a 5-4 advantage at the time.
