It's Two Straight Weekly Honors for Lacrosse's O'Shea
For the second-straight week, University of Hartford lacrosse player Kevin O'Shea was tabbed the America East Rookie of the Week as announced by the conference office on Monday afternoon. O’Shea earned the honor of the league’s top rookie after scoring twice and adding an assist in Hartford’s 15-14 overtime loss to Holy Cross on Saturday.
A freshman attackman, O’Shea got his afternoon going on Saturday with an assist on Hartford’s fourth goal of the afternoon in its home debut. He followed suit with the Hawks’ fifth marker with 7:48 to go in the first to provide Hartford with a 5-3 advantage. O’Shea, who also picked up four ground balls, netted his final goal with eight minutes left in the second quarter, an unassisted score that put Hartford ahead by one point at 7-6.
Last week, O’Shea took home the accolade after handing in a high-scoring performance in his collegiate debut at then-ranked No. 8 Maryland. He came off of the bench to net a hat trick in the Hawks’ season opener, a 12-6 loss to the Terrapins.
O’Shea is tied for the team lead in points (6) and has netted a squad-best five goals.
