Langan Nabs ECAC Honor

March 1, 2010

CENTERVILLE, Mass. - Loyola University Maryland attacker Matt Langan was honored Monday as the ECAC Co-Offensive Player of the Week following his six-point effort on Saturday in a league win over Quinnipiac.

The award is the first of Langan's career and marks the second week in a row a Greyhounds' player has earned the honor to start the 2010 season. Langan shares the award with Denver's Alex Demopoulos.

Langan scored a career-high six points with three goals and three assists in Loyola's 11-5 victory over the host Bobcats. His three goals tied his career-best set in 2008 against Rutgers, and his three assists set a new personal-best.

The junior from Madison, N.J., gave the Greyhounds a 4-1 second-quarter lead when he took an Eric Lusby pass and scored an extra-man goal with 5:39 left in the half.

He then scored a pair of fourth-quarter goals within nine seconds of each other, extending the Greyhounds' advantage to 10-4 with less than five minutes to play.

Senior defender Steve Layne and freshman midfielder Josh Hawkins earned ECAC Weekly Honor Roll mention.

Thus far in 2010, Langan has scored three goals and leads Loyola with five assists. He will be back in action when the Greyhounds play their second ECAC game of the year on Wednesday, March 3, at Bellarmine in Louisville, Ky. Game time is slated for 1 o'clock.
