Sophomore Riley Lyons booted his first ever game-winning field goal, leading the Big Green football team to a 13-10 win at Holy Cross. In three games last week, Maggie Scanlon came off the bench and  scored three goals and had two assists to lead the Big Green field hockey team to three wins. For their efforts, Scanlon and Lyons are this week's Woodlands Credit Union Athletes of the Week.

Each week, DartmouthSports.com will spotlight two outstanding student-athletes - one male, one female - as the Woodlands Credit Union Athletes of the Week. Student-athletes may be chosen based upon their efforts both on and off the field of competition.


Maggie Scanlon, (Shaker Heights, Ohio) Jr., M/F, Field Hockey


Dartmouth's junior midfield came off the bench three times last week and came away with a team-leading eight points. Scanlon scored once and assisted on another against Bryant in a 6-5 non-conference home win on Wednesday afternoon. She then went on to notch two more goals and assist on another Sunday as the Big Green triumphed at Holy Cross, 8-1. Her play also helped Dartmouth take down Ivy foe Brown, 3-2, on Saturday at Chase Field as part of the team's 3-0 stretch in five days. For her efforts, she was tabbed as the Ivy League Co-Player of the Week.

Riley Lyons, (Roswell, Ga.) So., KSp,  Football

Riley Lyons converted a PAT and scored his first career field goal, a 34-yarder in a win over Holy Cross. On his ensuing kickoff, the Crusader returner broke free down the left sideline and had one man to beat. The product of Blessed Trinity was up to the challenge, making the tackle at the Big Green 31 to thwart the touchdown. The defense forced a turnover on downs, and the score remained tied until Lyons drilled the 31-yard field goal to win the game. On top of all that, Lyons punted seven times for a 36.4-yard average, including a booming 57-yarder on the fly. Two of his punts ended up inside the Holy Cross 20.
