GEORGE NOTCHES PLAYER OF THE WEEK HONORS

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Dylan George (Bangor, Maine), a junior forward on the University of New Hampshire men's soccer team, was honored as Player of the Week by the America East Conference on Monday afternoon.

George scored two goals to propel the Wildcats to a 2-1 victory against Binghamton University in America East action at Cowell Stadium Wednesday afternoon. The win extended UNH's unbeaten streak to seven games (6-0-1), improving the Wildcats to 9-5-2 overall and 6-0-1 in America East.

The win also wrapped up New Hampshire's first regular-season crown since 1994 and its first outright title ever. It is the first time since 1997 that a team completed the conference schedule without a loss and is also UNH's best conference record since also compiling a 6-0-1 mark in 1994.

George's four-point total is a career high and is the first time the forward has tallied multiple goals in a game. On the season, he has tallied 11 points on four goals and three assists, which ranks second on the squad.

George and the Wildcats play their regular-season finale Nov. 3 against intrastate rival Dartmouth College. Game time for the Senior Day game at Bremner Field is 7 p.m.
