Kip Orban's week featured two games - both wins - lasted more than 125 minutes and saw him score four goals and have two assists.

What he did in an instant at the end of regulation against Lehigh Tuesday night, though, was award-worthy all by itself.

Orban tied the game against Lehigh with just 2.7 seconds left and then assisted on the game-winner in overtime, finishing off a four-point night in Princeton's 10-9 win. The four points tied a career high.

Orban then scored two more goals Saturday in Princeton's 13-10 win over Dartmouth.

His performance earned him Ivy League Co-Player of the Week honors, along with Penn goalie Brian Feeney, who made 13 saves in a 7-6 overtime win over Harvard.

Orban stretched his streak of consecutive games with at least one goal to 24 straight.

Princeton freshman Zach Currier was named the Ivy League Rookie of the Week after his three-goal, one-assist performance against Dartmouth.

Currier had four points against the BIg Green after having three for the year prior to that. Currier also had five ground balls, all on the wing on face-offs, as Princeton won 17 of 27.

Princeton is at Harvard Saturday and then plays Cornell the following week on Long Island. With the cluttered Ivy League race, Princeton could find itself anywhere from league co-champ and host for the Ivy tournament - or out of the Ivy tournament completely.
