Duffy honored by the ECAC again


POTSDAM, N.Y.—For the second week in a row, SUNY Potsdam senior lacrosse player Ryan Duffy (Liverpool, N.Y./Liverpool) has earned the title of Corvias ECAC Division III Mid-Atlantic Defensive Player of the Week. The honor comes on the heels of the goalie's fourth SUNYAC Goalie of the Week award.

Duffy has given the Bears a chance to win every time he's stepped on the field this season and last week was no different. On Wednesday night, the Liverpool native stopped a career-high 19 shots to help Potsdam to its first victory over Plattsburgh State in four years. He then set a new personal-best with 21 saves the Bears 10-8 road win at Brockport on Saturday.

Duffy and the Bears are now 8-3 on the season and 2-1 in the conference. Potsdam has jumped on the back its red-hot goalie to roll of four straight victories. Duffy leads the SUNYAC and is second in the nation with a .680 save percentage. The senior also leads the conference in saves-per-game with 12.55 and is second in goals-against-average at 7.10.

After a day postponement due to poor weather conditions, the Bears will host North Country rival St. Lawrence University tonight at 7 p.m.
