Waffle named MAAC Player of Week
Freshman Ari Waffle, who set a school record for goals in a game against VMI Saturday, was named Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Rookie of the Week Monday.
Waffle, from Manlius, N.Y., had eight goals in the team’s 13-12 overtime win.
The 5-9, 160-pound attacker scored JU’s tying goal with 1:50 to play in regulation on an assist from midfielder Cam Mann and the two teamed together with 2:38 to play in overtime as Waffle hit the game winner. It was his second game winner of the season. He added an assist to his total and his nine game points set a school record in that category.
Waffle’s eight goals give him a team-leading 19 for the season and he has 27 total points.
