Johns Hopkins University's Ross Schofield Takes September 26 Southern Division Player of the Week Honors
BRIDGEPORT, Pa. -- Johns Hopkins University's Ross Schofield (Jr., Greenwich, Conn./Greenwich) tallied 12 goals and seven assists in a 2-1 league weekend to claim the September 26 Men's Varsity Southern Division Player of the Week award.
Last week, he was the catalyst for the Hopkins' offense as JHU knocked off No. 18 Bucknell University (11-9 W OT) and previously undefeated No. 13 Princeton University (11-10 W) at home, before falling to George Washington University (14-13 L) in Washington, D.C.
Against Princeton on Friday night, Schofield neted a team-high four goals, dished out a pair of assists, swiped three steals and drew an ejection as the Blue Jays improved to 4-35 all-time against the Tigers and snapped a seven-game losing skid versus Princeton.
He repeated his performance a day later as he scored twice, handed out three helpers, grabbed four steals and drew two ejections in aiding Johns Hopkins upend Bucknell 11-9 in the Charm City for the program's second victory over a Top 20 team in as many days. Further, it is believed to be the first time that JHU has knocked off two Top 20-ranked teams in back-to-back games in the program's history.
In the nightcap in the nation's capital, he scored a career-high six goals, one shy of the school record, with a pair of assists and two steals in a 14-13 defeat by host George Washington.
The award marks the fourth during Schofield's collegiate career in Baltimore as he previously picked up Southern Division nods in 2010 (October 11 Player of the Week, November 22 Player of the Week) and 2009 (November 9 Rookie of the Week).
