Offensive Player of the Week – Kyle Aquin, RIT
Aquin is one of the best players in the country and he looked the part this weekend as RIT poured in a combined 36 goals in two games, knocking off No. 2 Cortland and then blasting Western New England. Aquin scored twice in the Tigers’ 18-11 win over the Red Dragons on Thursday and followed that performance up with a four-goal, three-assist, seven-point outburst in an 18-6 win over WNE. A truly great week from a truly great player.
Defensive Player of the Week – Stefan Basile, Union
Union had a pretty good week, eh? The Dutchmen knocked off No. 10 Wesleyan, 7-5, during the week and then upset No. 9 Springfield, 10-4, on Saturday. Junior goalkeeper Stefan Basile allowed just nine goals while making 23 saves to lead the way through two of the best teams in the country, likely launching Union into a very nice debut spot in the USILA Top 20.
