PRINCETON, N.J. – Senior midfielder Matt Danilack of the Dartmouth men’s soccer team has been named Ivy League Player of the Week as announced by the conference Monday.
The Rockville, Maryland native scored the only goal in Saturday’s win over Brown, which earned the outright Ivy League title for the Big Green. In Saturday’s match, the Bears and Big Green played scoreless through 75 minutes, before Danilack connected on a cross pass from freshman Dawson McCartney, and sent a header into the net.
The goal was his sixth of the year, and his third game-winning goal, after scoring game-winners against Harvard and Princeton. The captain is second on the team in goals and assists, and has recorded a .591 shot-on-goal average for the regular season.
This is his second weekly honor, and Dartmouth’s fourth, of the season. He will finish his collegiate career with five total conference weekly awards, including two Rookie of the Week honors from 2014.
Following the win over Brown, Dartmouth earned the 15 seed in the NCAA College Cup Tournament and a first-round bye. Danilack and the Big Green will be back in action this weekend for the tournament, as they host the winner of the New Hampshire/Fairfield game, on Sunday at Burnham Field at 1 p.m.
