Neumann Collects Second-Straight Ivy League Player of the Week Honor

Ivy League Release

PHILADELPHIA - University of Pennsylvania men's soccer senior captain Alec Neumann has been named Ivy League Player of the Week for the second-consecutive week, announced Monday by the league office. 

Neumann continued his offensive hot streak into the opening weekend of conference play, recording a brace on the road against Cornell that included the golden goal winner in the 102nd minute. Neumann's first goal came in the 47th minute on a feed from Joe Swenson to give Penn the lead. After the Big Red struck back late to send the game into extra time, Swenson again found Newmann in the 102nd minute, sneaking a shot past the keeper to seal the 2-1 victory for the Red and Blue.

Neumann currently leads the Ivy League in goals (6), points (12) and game-winning goals (2) and has notched five goals in the past two games for Penn, who sits alone atop the Ancient Eight with three points after the weekend.

The Quakers return to Rhodes Field twice this week, first hosting the Delaware Blue Hens at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, before returning to conference play against Columbia on Saturday, Oct. 8 at 7:30 p.m.
