Hofstra University men’s field lacrosse freshman Dylan McIntosh of Pitt Meadows won the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Men’s Lacrosse Rookie of the Week award for the week of March 19, after recording five goals in two Hofstra victories the previous week.
Since then, the rookie to the NCAA first division added eight goals in the last two Pride games last week, including a season-high six goals in Hofstra’s 9-8 loss at St. John’s University on March 24. Hofstra is located in Hempstead, N.Y., near New York City.
In Hofstra’s 7-6 victory over Monmouth last Wednesday, he had a goal, coming in the second quarter, which gave the Pride a two-goal lead. On Saturday at Providence, McIntosh posted a season-high four goals, two of which were man-up tallies. McIntosh scored three of Hofstra’s final five goals of the game. His second goal of the day was a go-ahead tally in the third quarter and he scored the first two goals of the fourth quarter as the Pride posted a 12-8 victory.
McIntosh now leads the Pride with 17 goals and is third on the team with 18 points.
