Froccaro Named Ivy Co-Player Of The Week; Tigers Jump To Fifth In Polls
Jeff Froccaro started Princeton off with a goal 63 seconds into the game, and by the the time the Tigers' 11-8 win over Johns Hopkins was finished, his fingerprints were all over it.
Froccaro finished with three goals and an assist, and perhaps just as importantly won 5 of 9 face-offs against the Blue Jays' Mike Poppleton, who is 51 for 63 against everyone else besides Jeff Froccaro so far this year.
His performance earned him Ivy League Co-Player of the Week honors along with Corell defenseman Jason Noble, who shut out Colgate's Peter Baum, the 2012 Tewaraaton Trophy winner, in the Big Red's 19-3 win over the Raiders.
Froccaro now has back-to-back four-point games to start his senior season. One of his goals against Hopkins came on an assist from his brother Jake, a freshman, who had two goals and two assists of his own.
Princeton plays its home opener Tuesday night (7) against Villanova.
