Cambridge, Mass.- UMBC senior goalkeeper Adam Cohen (Arnold, Md./The Severn School) was named America East Men’s Lacrosse Player of the Week for games ending Feb. 24, 2012.
Cohen led the Retrievers in the squad’s 11-7 victory over Rutgers at UMBC Stadium on Feb. 23. Over the final three quarters, the Retriever netminder made 12 of his 13 saves and allowed only five goals over the same span of time.
The 13 stops were one shy of his career high of 14 made at Rutgers in 11-7 victory in 2012. He also received America East Conference Player of the Week honors after his performance in that contest a season ago.
UMBC (1-1) faces defending national champions and current No. 4 Loyola (2-1) at Ridley Athletic Complex on Tues., Feb. 26 at 7:00 p.m.
