Clam Alumni Top 10 Performances Week #7 (3/27 – 4/2)

1. Alec Brown, Sr. Midfield Hartford: In his best performance of the year, the Hartford Captain was electric in the Hawks’ win over Vermont. Brown scored a hat trick and added three assists, as Hartford topped the Catamounts 15-13. At 1-1 in the America East, the next few weeks are critical for Hartford in their quest to head back to the NCAA Tournament. With a surprisingly strong Binghamton squad next on the schedule, Hartford will need Brown at his best as they make a push towards the America East playoffs.

 

2. Connor Donahue, Jr. Midfield Denver: The converted midfielder had his best performance of 2017, helping the Pioneers to a much needed BIG EAST win over Georgetown. Against the Hoyas, Donahue scored scored a career high four points (2g,2a) in a 20-11 win. Donahue currently sits fourth on the Pioneers in scoring with 12 points (6g,6a), and is one point shy of leading all Pioneer midfielders. He also sits 10 points shy of his career best (22) season, with four games remaining before BIG EAST Tournament play. Denver will look to keep rolling as they host a red hot Villanova squad.

 

3.Will Jennings, Sr. Attack Endicott: The senior sniper was electric for the Gulls in their win over the University of New England. The Gull Captain scored a season high six goals and added an assist, as Endicott escaped UNE 10-8. Jennings is likely to break two career milestones in this upcoming week. He is a goal away from 150 in his career, and six points away from 200 career points. The Gulls will look to continue their winning ways, as they play Wentworth, Nichols and Western New England this week.

 

4. JT Kelly, So. Attack/Midfield RPI: The do-it-all sophomore scored a career best seven points (3g,4a), as RPI topped Plattsburgh 14-5. He then followed that up with two assists in a 11-9 loss to Liberty League rival Vassar. RPI and Kelly will look to shake off the uncharacteristic loss to Vassar, as the Engineers have two huge games against Oneonta and Union this week. With 27 points (9g,17a) and seven games remaining, it’s safe to assume that Kelly will shatter his career best 33 point season from a year ago.

 

5. Kerry Lyne, Fr. Attack Union: Lyne started off the week scoring a goal and adding an assist in a 13-4 loss to Wesleyan. He then scored a career high four points (scoring his first career hat trick), as Union downed Clarkson 12-5. Lyne has put together a nice season for himself, scoring at least a point in every collegiate game. His 15 points (12g,3a) put him in a tie for third on the Dutchmen in scoring, while his 12 points are a team high. Lyne will look to continue his point streak with games against St. John’s Fischer and RPI this week.

 

6. Joe Manown, Fr. Attack Duke: The freshman continued to produce for the Blue Devils, helping Duke to their first ACC win in 2017. Against UNC, Manown scored two pivotal back-to-back goals to knot at seven a game that culminated in a 12-8 comeback win over the Tar Heels. With the win, Duke moves to 8-3 on the season, with important remaining conference tilts against Notre Dame and Virginia. Manown will try to move his multiple point game streak to six, as the Blue Devils face Notre Dame to end the week. Manown has an impressive 17 points in his last five games.

 

7. Johnny Hincks, Fr. Midfield Williams: The freshman began the week notching a game-high five points (3g,2a) in a tough 14-13 loss to Colorado College. He then followed that up with a goal and added an assist, as the Ephs downed Carthage 18-9. With only one out of conference game left on the schedule (RPI), Williams and Hincks are charging into NESCAC play with a 5-3 record, and currently sit at 2-2 through four conference games. They hit the road this week to take on Tufts and Wesleyan.

 

8. Larken Kemp, Sr. LSM Brown: Though Brown fell to Princeton convincingly, Kemp had a stellar day for the Bears in the loss. The Senior Captain scored a goal, added two assists, scooped up five ground balls and caused three turnovers in a 21-11 loss. After breaking 250 career ground balls and 100 career caused turnovers earlier in the year, Kemp is poised to surpass another incredible stat: 50 career points. The senior currently sits at 49 career points on 21 goals and 28 assists with six regular season games remaining.

 

9. Tyler Powers, Jr. Attack Washington: Powers continued his career year for the Shorement, helping them to a 1-1 record on the week. Against #17 Ursinus, Powers scored a goal and added an assist in a 10-8 loss. He then followed that up with a goal and added two assists in a 11-5 win over McDaniel. At 6-4 on the year, WAC is two wins away from their most since 2014. Powers will look to help them move to 7-4 as the Shoremen take on Muhlenberg this weekend.

 

10. Bryan Uva, Sr. Defense Tampa: The senior defenseman capped off a career day, scoring a goal, scooping up a ground ball and causing a turnover in a 19-7 win over in-state rival Lynn University. Uva is currently having his best statistical season for the 9-3 Spartans. Uva sits at a career-best eight ground balls and seven caused turnovers with four regular season games to go. Uva and his Tampa teammates are looking to make their first NCAA National Championship appearances after several close calls.
