PHILADELPHIA - Duke Lacroix scored a pair of goals in Penn's 3-0 win over Dartmouth on Saturday night, pushing the Quakers into a three-way tie for first place in the Ivy League. On Monday, his efforts were rewarded with Ivy League, ECAC and Philadelphia Soccer Six Player of the Week awards.
The two goals were part of a five-point night for Lacroix as the junior factored in on all of the scoring plays in the Red and Blue's second Ivy win of 2013. He assisted on Alec Neumann's goal in the 15', before scoring twice in the second half to provide crucial insurancef for the Quakers. His first goal came after he picked up a loose ball following a Neumann shot, his second was via his first career penalty kick.
This is the third Philadelphia Soccer Six Player of the Week award for Lacroix and his first career Ivy League Player of the Week honor.
On Tuesday, Lacroix was honored as the College Soccer Madness Ivy League Player of the Week, joining Alec Neumann as Quakers to earn that honor in 2013.
Lacroix and the Quakers will take on Yale -- one of two teams tied with Penn for first place -- Saturday at Rhodes Field at 7:30 p.m.
