Rose Earns Ivy League Player Of The Week Honors

Scored Twice, Added Two Assists In Victory Over Marist

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Senior Brad Rose got the Yale men's soccer team off to a fast start Sunday against Marist, scoring twice in a six-minute stretch midway through the first half. He later added two assists as the Bulldogs cruised to a 7-0 victory over the Red Foxes. Rose was rewarded for that performance by being named the Ivy League Player of the Week on Monday. He shared the honor with Brown's T.J. Popolizio.

Rose opened the scoring by blasting a free kick from just outside the box into the top corner. A few minutes later, he tapped in a Charlie Paris pass to make it 2-0.

Rose also played a role in the Bulldogs' final two goals, assisting on goals by Charlie Paris and Jenner Fox.

Rose, who missed virtually all of last season with an injury, has appeared in all six games and has seven points (2 goals, 3 assists).  It is the second time in his career that he earned Player of the Week honors. The first came in 2009 after he scored both goals in a 2-1 win over Columbia.

Rose and his teammates will be back in action on Friday night when Yale hosts Fairfield at 7 p.m.
