WORCESTER, Mass. - Freshman midfielder Kenny Minor (South Hadley, Mass.) has been named the Holiday Inn Express Crusader of the Week, for competition from April 9-15. Last week, Minor led the Holy Cross men's lacrosse team to a 2-0 record, with a 5-4 victory at Vermont and a 10-6 home win over Marist.
In the Vermont game, Minor had an assist on a goal by freshman attackman Chris Smirti (Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y.) with 1:13 left in the third quarter to tie the score at 4-4, then scored the game-winning goal with 10:05 left to play in the final period. He then added two more goals against Marist, including his second game-winner of the week.
On the season, Minor now ranks fifth on the team in scoring with eight points on six goals and two assists.
The Crusaders (5-6 overall, 1-5 Patriot League) return to action on Saturday, April 21, when they travel to Harvard for a 4:00 p.m. game.
