PHILADELPHIA - The Ivy League has announced its weekly award winners in men's lacrosse, and University of Pennsylvania junior goalkeeper Brian Feeney has been named Ivy League Co-Player of the Week along with Cornell attackman Rob Pannell.
Feeney enjoyed another outstanding game on Saturday against Dartmouth, making 10 saves while allowing just two goals -- one of thema man-upgoal-- as the Quakers defeated the Big Green, 11-2. It marked the fewest goals allowed by Penn in a game since 2002, and the fewest to an Ivy opponent since 1999.
Feeney's 83.3 save percentage on Saturday matched his career best, set just two weeks earlier when he had 15 saves and allowed just three goals at Brown. In addition, he had an 81.0 save percentage against Lehigh earlier this season (17 saves, 4 goals). Feeney is the only goalkeeper in the country to have three games this season with an 80-percent save percentage or better.
In addition to Feeney's honor, Penn senior attackman Ryan Parietti was put on the Ivy League's weekly honor roll for his performance against the Big Green. Playing his final home game wearing the Penn uniform, Parietti had four goals and an assist.
Penn closes out the regular season this Saturday, facing Bellarmine University. That game will face off at 5:30 p.m. and will be played at Radnor (Pa.)High School as part of the Katie Samson Lacrosse Festival.
