CENTERVILLE, Mass. - Two days after holding Towson University to just two goals, Loyola University Maryland senior goalkeeper Jake Hagelin was named the ECAC Defensive Player of the Week, the league office announced today.
Hagelin made six saves and directed a Greyhounds defense that held the Tigers to just eight shots on goal and 21 overall. The 2010 ECAC Goalkeeper of the Year also had five ground balls as Loyola improved to 2-0 in the young 2011 season. Three of Hagelin's six saves came on shots that were taken from inside of five yards.
A starter since his freshman season, Hagelin has compiled a 25-14 record in goal for Loyola. He has a 7.94 goals against average and has made saves on 55.1-percent of shots on goal he has faced.
Today's award is the second of the year for a Loyola player - Mike Sawyer earned Co-Offensive Player of the Week honors last Monday - and the seventh of Hagelin's career.
Hagelin and the Greyhounds open ECAC action on Saturday when they host Bellarmine University at 1 o'clock at Ridley Athletic Complex.
