YORK, Pa. – York College junior goalkeeper Tyler Powell has been selected as this week's Capital Athletic Conference Men's Lacrosse Defensive Player-of-The-Week. Powell, who helped lead the Spartans to a 1-1 record this week, collects the honor for the second time this season.
Powell recorded a career high 19 saves with a .514 save percentage in Wednesday's game against Salisbury. He followed up that performance with an 18-save effort in an 11-5 win over Christopher Newport, allowing just five goals with a .783 save percentage.
The Green and White's starting goalkeeper has helped York reach the ten-win mark for the season including an impressive 5-1 record in the Capital Athletic Conference. Powell has now made 178 saves with a .631 save percentage on the season to go along with an 8.29 goals against average.
Powell and the Spartans look to finish the regular season strong with two more CAC games. They host Stevenson on April 12, and then travel to Mary Washington on April 14. The Green and White look to carry on momentum into postseason play as the CAC Tournament is slated to begin on Sunday, April 17.
