LOUDONVILLE, N.Y. - Siena Lacrosse senior attackman Bryan Neufeld took home his third MAAC Offensive Player of the Week honor of the season Monday. Neufeld, who currently leads the nation in scoring, erupted for nine points in the Saints' 20-8 win Saturday over Marist which clinched the program its fourth straight MAAC Regular Season Title.
Neufeld tallied five goals - including the eventual game-winner - and added four assists while picking up three groundballs in leading the Saints to their eighth straight victory. During the team's winning streak, Neufeld has amassed a whopping 57 points.
With his breakout performance, Neufeld now leads the nation in scoring, averaging 5.33 points per game. He also ranks second in the country in assists (2.5) and seventh in goals (2.83). Additionally, Neufeld needs just two more points to become the MAAC's all-time leading career scorer.
Neufeld and the Saints return to action Tuesday night when they travel to crosstown rival UAlbany for a 7 p.m. faceoff at John Fallon Field. The game will be televised throughout New York on Time Warner Cable Sports.
