Matthew Goncalves gambled on the ball that everyone else watched. His Cornell teammate Connor Drought had whipped a cross that danced along the edge of the six yard box. And while two defenders flailed, Goncalves slipped in at the far post, lashing the ball in. His goal — coming with just 18 seconds remaining in Cornell’s 2-1 win over Brown — capped off a memorable week for the Big Red. Cornell has now won six in a row and sits atop the Ivy League. And Goncalves has been a valuable contributor thus far. Last week was his best yet, with the forward scoring two goals and adding an assist. It’s that level of performance that makes him our player of the week.
