Men’s Team of the Week: October 26
An exciting, three-team race is taking shape in the Ivy League.
Princeton currently leads the chase for the regular season automatic bid, three points ahead of Cornell and four in front of Yale. None of the three have played each other yet.
Thanks in part to a strong effort from the latest TDS Men’s Player of the Week, the Tigers have four wins in four Ivy League games. Kevin O'Toole, the 2018 Ivy League Offensive Player of the Year, scored a hat trick and assisted another goal in a 4-1 win against Harvard over the weekend. The former Red Bulls Academy product also added a goal earlier in the week, a 2-0 non-conference win against Lehigh.
