CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Freshman forward Brian Rogers of the eighth-ranked Harvard men’s soccer team has been selected as the Ivy League Rookie of the Week for the second time this season, the conference office announced Monday afternoon. Rogers was also honored by the league Sept. 14.

A native of Bronxville, N.Y., Rogers netted his third game-winning goal of the season, scoring a golden goal in the 103rd minute to lift Harvard to a 1-0 victory at Yale Saturday evening. Rogers snuck the ball into the left corner of the cage at 102:53, helping the Crimson improve to 7-1 overall and 1-0 in the Ivy League. Rogers leads the Crimson in game-winning tallies and is second in points with 13, goals with five and is tied for the assist lead with three.
