CENTERVILLE, Mass. - Loyola University Maryland junior long-stick midfielder Scott Ratliff was named the ECAC Lacrosse League Co-Specialist of the Week on Monday after helping the top-ranked Greyhounds to a 17-6 victory Saturday afternoon against Hobart College.
Ratliff scored a goal, assisted on two and directly led to another in the victory. He also registered four caused turnovers and two ground balls.
The Tewaaraton Award nominee's first caused turnover led to a Josh Hawkins ground ball, transition run and the Greyhounds' first goal of the game.
This season, Ratliff has scored six goals and has five assists, and he leads the team in ground balls (47) and caused turnovers (28). His 2.33 caused turnovers per game average is good for fifth in NCAA Division I.
Ratliff has earned two Specialist of the Week honors this year and one Defensive Player of the Week nod from the ECAC.
The Greyhounds (12-0 overall, 6-0 ECAC) wrap up their regular-season on Saturday at 1 p.m. when they host Johns Hopkins University at Ridley Athletic Complex.
