Cohen Takes Home Second Ivy Player of the Week Honor

Jeff Cohen scored seven goals on 12 shots against Michigan Saturday (Gil Talbot).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. Senior attackman Jeff Cohen, who leads Harvard and the Ivy League with 36 goals and 40 points, has earned his second Ivy League Player of the Week honor, the conference office announced.

Cohen, a native of Syosset, N.Y., scored a career-high seven goals and added an assist for a career-best eight points in Harvard's 11-7 win over Michigan March 31. Cohen, who also tallied a goal at No. 2/3 Massachusetts March 27, netted three straight Crimson goals in the third quarter against the Wolverines. He also added two man-up tallies and finished with 13 shots, including 12 on target. Cohen was also honored as Ivy Player of the Week March 19.

Cohen, who has scored at least one goal in all nine games this season, has moved to third on Harvard's all-time list with 130 career goals. He needs two more tallies to tie David Bohn '60 for first in program history. In addition, Cohen's 36 goals this spring mark a new career-high.

Harvard (5-4), which stands at 2-0 in the Ivy League, will visit No. 5/5 Cornell (7-1, 3-0 Ivy) Saturday afternoon in a crucial Ancient Eight contest at 1 p.m. in Ithaca, N.Y.
