Krieger Named NEILA Player of the Week

Krieger earned his third career NEILA Player of the Week honor following a 12-save performance against Georgetown (Gil Talbot).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Goalkeeper Harry Krieger has been named the NEILA Player of the Week after recording 12 saves in Harvard's 8-6 win over Georgetown on Saturday.

Krieger allowed just two goals in the first half, both coming in the opening quarter, while making five saves through 30 minutes of play. Georgetown pulled ahead in the third quarter, 5-4, before the Crimson regrouped to take a 7-6 advantage into the fourth. Krieger made five saves in the final 15 minutes while blanking the Hoyas to preserve the victory.

Krieger owns a 2-2 record on the year with a 9.00 goals against average and a save percentage of 55.6. The senior is 18-16 for his career with a 9.55 goals against average and a 52.4 save percentage.

This marks the third NEILA Player of the Week award of Krieger's career after garnering the honor twice as a sophomore. He is the first Crimson to earn the award since Daniel Eipp did so on March 27 of last season.
