WALTHAM, Mass. – Junior Ben Bath (Kennebunkport, Maine/Kennebunk) has claimed the Northeast-10 Men's Lacrosse Goalie of the Week Award, after helping Bentley University to a 13-5 victory over Franklin Pierce on Saturday.
Bath made nine saves, and also had two ground balls, in helping the Falcons win at Franklin Pierce in their first NE10 game of the season. The junior made three saves in the first half, and stopped six more in the second half.
The Maine native has started all three games for Bentley thus far, and has posted solid numbers with his 8.14 goals against average 6th best in the conference. He has a 2-1 record, after he also helped Bentley to an 11-5 win at Catawba on March 8.
Bentley (2-1, 1-0 NE10) is just outside of the USILA/Nike Division II top 20 poll this week, having received the most votes of any team not ranked. They will go for a third straight win on Saturday when they visit Assumption.
