PRINCETON N.J. - Dartmouth freshman forward Corey Delaney (Chatham, N.J.) picked up her second consecutive women's soccer Ivy League Rookie of the Week honor on Monday (Sept. 24). Delaney tallied two assists in Big Green wins over NJIT (Sept. 20) and Brown (Sept. 23).

Delaney makes it three consecutive weeks a Dartmouth player has earned recognition from the Ivy League. Emma Brush (Grosse Pointe Park, Mich.) earned Player of the Week honors on Sept. 10. She also becomes the first Big Green player to win two Rookie of the Week honors since Chrissy Lozier (Fairfield, Conn.) in 2010.

The New Jersey native followed up her first career goal against Fordham (Sept. 16) last week, with two assists this week.  In Dartmouth's win over NJIT she played a perfect ball into the box for leading scorer Brush to score -- one of Dartmouth's five goals against the Highlanders.

In the Big Green's win over Brown she assisted on Marina Moschitto's (Andover, Mass.) game-winner. She again took the ball up the sideline and placed the ball right into the center of the box, giving Moschitto ample space to put the ball past the Brown goalkeeper and give Dartmouth a win in its Ivy League opener.

Delaney, who has started each game this season, is tied for the team lead in assists with four helpers and ranks third in points with six points on one goal and four assists.

The Big Green will put their four-game win streak on the line when they travel to Princeton, N.J., for a crucial Ivy League contest on Saturday (Sept. 29). Dartmouth and Princeton are currently sitting at the top of the Ivy League standings after Princeton defeated Yale in overtime in its opener on Saturday. Kickoff is 2 p.m. at Princeton's Roberts Stadium.
