Freak of the Week

For goalie, I do love Georgetonw’s Nick Marrocco grabbing four ground balls, and Denver’s Alex Ready only letting in one goal. On offense, there was some fantastic shooting like Connor Kelly’ 6/8, Kieran Mullins 8/11, and Ethan Walker’s 8/11. All were against strong competition, too.

At faceoff, the usual faces were once again making themselves known. Baptiste, Ierlan, Arceri, Mackie, Massa, and Rak were their usual dominant selves. Although of all of those I lean slightly towards Baptiste. On Defense, I loved the performances, but none truly separated themselves from the others.

So for the best overall performance this week, I’m going with: Connor Kelly. Maryland didn’t have a must-win against Penn State, but that game really matter. Penn State led for nearly the entire contest, but it was Kelly’s man-up goal with three minutes left that earned the win. His sox goals was a career high, but doing so on just 8 shots against Penn State is ridiculous. Hats off to you, Mr. Kelly!
