Complete Ivy League Release
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – After scoring two goals and assisting on three other Harvard tallies for seven points, senior forward Andre Akpan was named the Ivy League Co-Player of the Week, the conference office announced Tuesday afternoon. Freshman Scott Prozeller had a goal and an assist and was named to the conference honor roll.
In the season opener against Stony Brook Sept. 4, Akpan, Harvard’s all-time leading scorer with 104 points, found the back of the net twice in the second half of Harvard’s 4-1 victory over the Seawolves. Akpan, a native of Grand Prairie, Texas, also assisted on a goal by Desmond Mitchell at 72:30 to finish the game with five points. On Sept. 7, Akpan handed out assists on goals by Prozeller and Jamie Rees as Harvard topped Boston College by a 2-0 margin. The win was the first for Harvard over the Eagles since 2000.
A midfielder from Sudbury, Mass., Prozeller handed out an assist on a score by Brian Rogers in Harvard’s win over Stony Brook. Prozeller then tallied the game-winner against Boston College, as he booted the ball from five yards out against the Eagles at 21:29 for his first collegiate goal.
Harvard returns to action against No. 14 Boston University Friday, Sept. 11. The Crimson and Terriers will meet at Ohiri Field at 4 p.m.
