Peter Fallon Named Ivy League Player of the Week

Providence, RI -  Brown junior All-American defenseman Peter Fallon (Baltimore, Md.) has been named the Ivy League Player of the Week for his role in Brown men's lacrosse victories over eighth-ranked Cornell and Providence College.

 
Fallon was the difference for the Bears' defense in Brown's 13-10 Ivy League win over No. 8 Cornell. He held Big Red attackman Ryan Hurley, the Ivy League's top goal scorer, to just one goal, that on a loose ball in front of the net.  He also caused two turnovers, picked up three ground balls and was a key cog in Brown's converting 17-of-19 clear attempts. He also picked up three ground balls and caused two turnovers against Providence in a 14-7 victory.
 
Fallon ranks second on the Brown team in ground balls with 32 for the season.  He is a 2009 first team All-Ivy selection, and USILA All-American.
Fallon and the Brown men's lacrosse team will play its final regular season Ivy League game on Saturday, May 1, hosting Dartmouth at Stevenson Field, starting at 1:00 p.m.
