Junior Had 10 Points vs. Brown

 

PRINCETON, NJ – An early-season injury slowed the start of his 2017 campaign, but Ben Reeves has turned on the jets over the last month. The All-American attackman registered a career-high 10 points in an 18-12 win over Brown last Saturday at Reese Stadium, which was enough to earn Ivy League Player of the Week honors.

 

That distinction for the junior from Macedon, N.Y., was well deserved considering the ramifications of the contest. Yale's victory, aided by Reeves' five goals and five assists, clinched at least a share of the league title and the top seed (home field) for the May 5-7 Ivy Tournament.

 

Reeves, the school's first Tewaaraton Award finalist, equaled his best goal total with his big day against the Bears. His previous points high was nine (5 goals) against Harvard in last year's Ivy Tournament.

 

The No. 11 Bulldogs play at No. 5 Albany this Saturday at 7 p.m.
