Havas Named Patriot League Offensive Player of the Week Following Hat Trick
BETHLEHEM, Pennsylvania – Lehigh field hockey student Lenke Havas was named Attacking Player of the Week Monday after her hat-trick in her first career beating Longwood 3-2 in the Patriot League. The attempt came against a Lancers program that was 8-5 last season and is constantly contested in the MAC.
Havas scored at 8:04 and 36:05 after penalty corners, then 39:00 after a penalty kick. The last two goals came within nine minutes of Longwood’s scoring to one. As a two-way midfielder, Havas also played a key role in Lehigh’s defense, which allowed only one shot on goal in the first half and only one goal in the first 53 minutes of the game.
Sunday marked Lehigh’s first hat trick since Gabby Tofig in October 2016.
Havas’ previous weekly Patriot League award was a Defensive Player of the Week award last spring.
With a 1-1 draw in the young season, the Mountain Hawks will return on Sunday when they see Bryant on ESPN + at 11 a.m.
