Men's Lacrosse Offensive Playe r of the Week
 
Peter DeSimone, Sr., A, Ursinus
East Greenwich, R.I. | La Salle Academy 
DeSimone established a new single-game program record with seven goals and assisted on the game-winning goal in overtime as the 10th-ranked Bears rallied from a five-goal deficit in the third quarter to edge 15th-ranked Franklin & Marshall. The senior scored the first two goals of the game for Ursinus, which fell behind 5-0 in the first frame before DeSimone got going. His record-breaking marker made it 15-14 with just over two minutes to go before the Bears equalized, and DeSimone threaded a perfect pass to Sam Mutz for the game-winner just 16 seconds into overtime. He scored seven of his eight shots for a stellar 87.5 shooting percentage in the win.
