HANOVER, N.H. — For the third time in as many weeks to begin the season, the Dartmouth men’s lacrosse team features the Ivy League Rookie of the Week. This time, it’s midfielder Emmett Paradine, who received the award on Monday following a four-goal, five-point effort in Saturday’s 11-8 win against Siena. Paradine follows Sam Cooper and Max LaTorre, who received the honor following the first two games of the season. Paradine’s points came at critical moments on Saturday, as the Big Green improved to 3-0 for just the second time since 2006.
Paradine had a hand in three straight fourth-quarter goals at a critical time. He scored his third goal of the game at 11:31 to give the Big Green an 8-7 lead. After Siena pulled even, Paradine assisted on Quinn Moore’s goal at the 6:10 mark (to make it 9-8) then scored his fourth, unassisted, at 5:26 to put Dartmouth ahead 10-8. Paradine also scored the first goal of the game, at 10:58 of the first, then gave the Big Green a 7-3 lead early in the third quarter.
For the season, Paradine has seven goals and two assists, recording multiple points in all three games thus far.
Receiving votes in this week’s Inside Lacrosse Media Poll, the Big Green are one one of just five undefeated teams in the nation (along with Notre Dame, Cornell, Virginia and UMBC). They return to action on Tuesday when they travel to Hobart to face the Statesmen. Opening faceoff is set for 3 p.m.
