Princeton, N.J. -- The Ivy League field hockey teams got off to a hot start in the opening four days of the 2010 season by posting a 10-3 record and outscoring their opposition by a 45-28 margin. In a weekend full of impressive individual performances and debuts, two players rose above their peers to claim the first Ivy League weekly honors of the 2010 season. By playing pivotal roles in leading their teams to 2-0 records to start the season, Harvard’s Chloe Keating earned Player of the Week accolades, while Yale’s Erica Borgo has been named the Ivy League Rookie of the Week.
PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Senior forward Chloe Keating (Bryn Mawr, Pa.) led Harvard to a 2-0, season-opening weekend with nine points on four goals and an assist. She registered a goal and an assist in a 6-1 opening win against Holy Cross Saturday and then notched her first career hat trick in a 5-2 defeat of Bryant on Monday. Despite the lopsided final scores in both games, Keating scored pivotal goals in both contests. Each game entered halftime tied at 1-1 before Keating scored the go-ahead goal for the Crimson early in the second half. She also had a hand in the first goal in the opening minutes of each game. Keating was also the last member of the Crimson to earn Player of the Week honors, having done so on Sept. 15 of 2009.
Keating’s Weekly Statistics:
2-2 GP/GS, 4 G, 1 A, 9 Pts., 9 Shots, 7 SOG, 2 GWG, Team: 2-0-0
ROOKIE OF THE WEEK
Freshman forward Erica Borgo (Randolph, N.J.) made an instant impact for the Bulldogs over the weekend, scoring three goals and adding two assists in Yale’s wins over Sacred Heart and Quinnipiac. Borgo, who was also the inserter for all 24 Yale corners, had a pair of goals and a pair of assists in Friday night’s 5-0 win over the Pioneers. She then scored the game-winner in Sunday’s 4-3 win over the Bobcats. Brogo is Yale’s first Ivy League Rookie of the Week since Marissa Waldemore earned the honor on Sept. 11, 2007.

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Freshman Sarah Cebry (Burlington, Conn.) capped a hat trick with the game-winning goal 5:13 into overtime to lift the Southern Connecticut State University field hockey team to a 6-5 triumph over Mansfield on Sunday afternoon. It was the first win of the year for the Owls, who improved to 1-1.
The contest was a back-and-forth affair in which the Owls held leads of 3-2 and 5-4 before Mansfield forced overtime with just 1:35 left in regulation.
Tied at 3-3 midway through the second half, Mansfield regained the lead with a goal from Alycia Pici that cage with just 11:08 remaining.
The Owls evened the score roughly 90 seconds later, when Cebry tipped home a bid from Dieny Charlot (Deep River, Conn.). Ann Farrier (Belfast, Maine) then gave SCSU the lead with just 2:45 remaining when she connected on a redirection off the stick of Jennifer Peterson (Canton, Conn.).
Mansfield forced overtime on a goal from Taryn Schawillie with 1:35 remaining.
Southern Connecticut capitalized on its only penalty corner of the extra frame. Farrier started the play with a pushout from the right of the goal. Laurie Cockerline (Lopatcong, N.J.) and Paige Donlin (South Glastonbury, Conn.) then connected on quick, short passes that culminated in Cebry’s strike from in front of the cage.
Mansfield (1-2) opened the scoring just 4:34 into play, but the Owls countered on the first of two goals from Cockerline.
Kristy Tutorow scored just 1:07 later to put Mansfield in front again, but Cebry and Cockerline found the back of the net within a span of 3:09 to push the hosts ahead, 3-2. SCSU carried that lead into halftime.
Mansfield ultimately evened the score just 6:01 into the second half before the flurry of late goals.
Cebry (three goals) and Cockerline (two goals, two assists) both had six points in the win. Goalie Lauren Zarrella (Morris, Conn.) finished with 11 saves.
The Owls are back in action on Friday night with a home game against No. 3 nationally ranked UMass-Lowell.
HAMDEN, Conn. - Quinnipiac University junior Kaitlyn Notarianni (Clarks Summit, Pa.) has been named the Northeast Conference Field Hockey Co-Player of the Week, the league office today announced. Notarianni recorded her first-career hat trick, resulting in the Bobcats’ first season-opening win since 2005.
The junior forward tallied three unanswered goals to erase a 1-0 deficit and put the Bobcats in line for a 4-1 road victory over Lehigh. Notarianni scored Quinnipiac’s first goal of the season in the game’s 27th minute. The third-year Bobcat broke a 1-1 halftime tie by scoring twice more within the first 1:45 of the second session. After scoring on a loose ball in front at the 46:21 mark, Notarianni doubled the Bobcats’ lead with an unassisted tally 24 seconds later. Notarianni’s three goals match her season total from 2009.
The Bobcats return to action Friday, when they face Boston College in their home opener. Action from the QU Field Hockey & Lacrosse Turf Field is set to begin at 4 p.m.
