York, Pa. – Sophomore forward Tori Eskay (Damascus, Md./Urbana) picked up her second Capital Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Week honor of the season for the week ending October 31. The honor was announced Monday afternoon by CAC commissioner Tom Byrnes.
St. Mary's (6-7-3), who finished third in the regular-season conference standings, split its contests for the week. The Seahawks started with a 2-1 loss to Virginia Wesleyan College before eliminating the defending CAC champion, sixth-seeded University of Mary Washington, from the league playoffs in first-round action with a 3-1 decision.
Eskay notched the weekly honor after scoring twice, including the game-winner, in Saturday's CAC first-round showdown. She now leads the Seahawks with 13 goals and 29 points this season.
Eskay ranks third in the conference in goals and fourth in points while being tied for seventh with three assists.
The Seahawks will return to action tomorrow as they travel to western Maryland to take on second-seeded Frostburg State University in CAC semifinal action at 5:00 pm. St. Mary's will look to avenge a 5-0 regular-season loss at Frostburg on October 16.
