After scoring his first career hat trick, Towson University men’s lacrosse midfielder Tim Montgomery (Lenape) collected the first weekly award of his Black and Gold career.
The Mt. Laurel, New Jersey native was selected as the CAA Men’s Lacrosse Player of the Week. The Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) made its announcement Tuesday morning. Drexel’s Sean Donnelly was named CAA Rookie of the Week.
Montgomery picked a very good time for the first hat trick of his career, netting three goals in an upset over No. 12 Loyola on Saturday. Montgomery scored the game-winner 2:41 into overtime for Towson’s first win over a ranked opponent this season. Montgomery scored Towson’s first of the day on an extra-man chance late in the first quarter, before scoring a goal to give Towson its first lead of the day with 3:15 to play in the fourth. He then scored in overtime, getting under his defender for the Tigers’ second-straight win over a ranked Loyola team at home.
Colorado College’s Billingsley (Central Bucks East) is SCAC OPOW
Colorado College (8-2) junior attackman Brant Billingsley was named the Men’s Offensive Player of the Week by the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference for his performances during three league victories last week at Washburn Field.
Billingsley struck for seven goals and dished out eight assists, and did not commit a turnover during the three games.
He recorded what then were career highs of three goals and five points during Friday’s 25-1 victory over Centenary. He also picked up two ground balls and caused a turnover.
Two days later while making his first career start, Billingsley set career highs with four goals, six assists and 10 points in the 29-6 win over the Gents. He picked up a pair of ground balls in that game as well.
Billingsley now is second on the team with 12 assists, third with 20 points and tied for sixth with eight goals.
“Brant played great this weekend capped off by a 10-point game on Sunday,” head coach Sean Woods said. “What is even more impressive is that he had zero turnovers in two straight games and he handled the ball more than anyone in those games. That’s just unheard of.
“This is a well-deserved honor for Brant as he is one of our hardest-working and dedicated players, and he brings so much energy to our team.”
