For the first time in her career Princeton field hockey junior Allison Evans garnered Ivy League Player of the Week honors, it was announced Tuesday. The Tiger striker is coming off a two-assist and one-goal performance last weekend.

A two-time All-Ivy selection and 2011 Ivy Rookie of the Year, Evans set up the game-winning play in Princeton’s 2-1 overtime victory over Michigan State on Sept. 13. After Princeton held the lead for nearly 62 minutes the Spartans knotted things up to force extra time with 10 seconds left in regulation. In the 83rd minute Evans took possession of the ball on the right side and sent it to an open Teresa Benvenuti to score the game-winner.

Two days later versus then-No. 13 Penn State, Evans did her best to contribute in Princeton’s unsuccessful come-from-behind effort. After going down 2-0, the forward fed the ball to an open Julia Reinprecht to cut PSU’s lead in half before halftime. She then added a goal of her own on a deflected shot in the 57th minute.

Evans leads the Tigers with three assists and has two goals on the year for seven points over four starts.

No. 6 Princeton (3-1) hits the road next for a weekend at Dartmouth and No. 5 Syracuse. The Tigers match against the Orange will be live on ESPN3 on Sunday.
