Jake Haley made 17 saves the Hoyas victory on Saturday.

March 4, 2013

WASHINGTON - Redshirt sophomore goalie Jake Haley (Grasonville, Md./Queen Anne's County) was named the BIG EAST Men's Lacrosse Defensive Player of the Week when the league announced its weekly award winners on Monday afternoon. Haley made a career-high 17 saves in his first start of the season to lead the Georgetown University men's lacrosse team (2-1, 0-0 BIG EAST) past Dartmouth on Saturday for the Patriot Cup at Gerald Ford Stadium on the campus of SMU.

"I knew coming in that the team needed me to show up," Haley said. "Our defense played great and gave me shots that I could see and we got the win."

Haley, who made his first career start on Saturday and saw his first action of the season, responded by making 17 saves, including five in a decisive fourth quarter, as the Hoyas held the Big Green scoreless for the final three minutes of the game to clinch a victory. The win was the Hoyas second consecutive one-goal win.

Junior attack Jeff Fountain (Lutherville-Timonium, Md./St. Pauls' School for Boys) turned in another career game, scoring two goals, including the eventual game-winner and dishing out a career-high four assists. Fountain has scored the game-winning goal in both of Georgetown's wins this season. This is the second consecutive week Fountain has been named to the BIG EAST men's lacrosse weekly honor roll.

The Hoyas return to action on Friday night, when they travel north to Boston, Mass. to take on Harvard University at 6 p.m. at Soldiers Field Lacrosse Stadium. The Hoyas follow its trip to Boston with a Tuesday evening game at Mount St. Mary's, before returning home to open its BIG EAST schedule with Providence College on Saturday, March 16. Tickets are now available for the Hoyas game with the Friars and all men's lacrosse home games. For more information, please visit WeAreGeorgetown.com/tickets.
