Brush Earns Ivy League Player of the Week
PRINCETON N.J. - Senior tri-captain Emma Brush's (Grosse Pointe Park, Mich.) three goals against Maine and No. 21 Rutgers earned her Ivy League Player of the Week honors it was announced on Monday (Sept. 10). Brush, who earns the award for the first time in her career, is Dartmouth's first Player of the Week winner since the 2008 season when former goalkeeper Laurel Peak claimed the honor.
The Big Green forward picked up her first career multiple-goal game in Dartmouth's 3-1 win over Maine on Friday (Sept. 7) tallying two markers in the victory. She followed that performance with the Big Green's lone goal against No. 21 Rutgers on Sunday (Sept. 9). In all, Brush scored three of Dartmouth's four goals on the weekend.
Brush, who was Dartmouth's MVP last season, has opened the 2012 campaign on an offense tear, leading the squad with three goals for a team-best six points. She is second on the team in shots with five and leads the team in game-winning goals with one. She has started each game this season and has earned a starting spot in each of Dartmouth's last 15 games, dating back to last season.
The Big Green are next back on the pitch on Friday (Sept. 14) when they welcome Granite State rival, New Hampshire, to Burnham Field. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. Dartmouth will then travel to the Bronx to take on Fordham on Sunday (Sept. 16) in non-conference action.
