EDISON, N.J. - For the second consecutive week, the Marist men's lacrosse team took home two weekly awards as senior attack Jack Doherty (Yorktown Heights, N.Y.) was named the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Offensive Player of the Week and sophomore goalie Dave Scarcello (Buffalo, N.Y.) was named the MAAC Defensive Player of the Week for the second straight week.

Doherty helped lead Marist College to a thrilling come-from-behind 10-9 overtime victory versus Towson, a pre-season Top-25 team on Friday night by a team-high four goals, on just five shots. He also scooped up one ground ball and had one caused turnover, which led to a transitional goal for the Red Foxes less than a minute into the second half. Three of his four goals came in the second half, including the game tying goal and the overtime winner with just one second left on the clock.

Scarcello finished with 12 saves and collected two ground balls in helping Marist to a 4-0 start to the season with a thrilling 10-9 overtime victory on the road at Towson. He led the Red Foxes' defense to hold a powerful Towson offense to just two goals in the second half, holding them scoreless for a 25 minute stretch to end the game, making four saves in the fourth quarter and two more big ones in the overtime session. Scarcello limited the Towson extra man offense, which was connecting on a 42% success rate leading in to the game, to a 0-3 performance.

It is the second career weekly awards for both Doherty and Scarcello and the sixth in the first four weeks of the season for the Red Foxes. Senior attack man Connor Rice (Penfield, N.Y.) was named Offensive Player of the Week after his three goal, two assist performance in the season-opener versus Stony Brook. Junior midfielder Mike Begley (Brookeville, Md.) also earned Offensive Player of the Week after his six point effort against Sacred Heart and Scarcello and freshman Joseph Radin (Long Beach, N.Y) swept Defensive Player and Rookie last week.

Marist (4-0) returns home next Saturday, March 16 to open conference play against MAAC opponent Detroit.
