Lamison, Haverhals, and Weers Earn ACC Weekly Honors
REENSBORO, N.C. – Syracuse’s Emma Lamison has been named the ACC Field Hockey Offensive Player of the Week, while Boston College’s Frederique Haverhals and Syracuse’s Roos Weers were named the Co-Defensive Players of the Week.
Lamison had a hand in six of the Orange’s 10 goals on the weekend, including two goals and two assists in the 5-1 win over No. 2 Duke. The senior forward from Liverpool, New York, assisted on the game’s first two goals then scored the third and fourth on her own to send Syracuse out to a 4-0 lead over the Blue Devils in the first 25 minutes of action on Friday. She followed that performance by assisting on the game’s first two goals against Cornell on Sunday to once again give the Orange a lead it wouldn’t relinquish. Lamison also drew the most corners for Syracuse over the weekend.
Haverhals was instrumental in the Eagles’ two-game road sweep this weekend, playing all 140 minutes of action as the Eagles allowed a single goal away from home. On Friday, the sophomore back from Warmond, Netherlands, scored the game-winning goal when she knocked in the rebound of Emily McCoy’s shot off the penalty corner and backed the defensive unit that held No. 8 Louisville to just 10 shots – well below their 17.9 per game average headed into the game. On Sunday, Haverhals and the defense held Indiana to just four shots, more than 10 below their season average of 14.6 coming into the game. The 2-0 win was just the second shutout of the season for the Eagles and their first since Aug. 26.
Weers scored four goals over two games, including the first two in each contest to set the tone in a weekend in which Syracuse outscored its opponents 10-1, including the 5-1 win over No. 2 Duke. The senior back from Bussum, Netherlands, also anchored the back line as one of the team’s center backs, limiting Duke to two first half shots and one corner en route to a 4-0 halftime lead. She and the Syracuse defense allowed seven total shots on goal over the course of the weekend.
