Thompson's 7 Goals vs. Georgetown Most In Ivy League In Two Years
April 9, 2003
Providence, RI -
Senior Jon Thompson (Freeport, ME) lit up the scoreboard for seven goals in Saturday's 12-11 loss to third-ranked Georgetown, scoring the most goals in the Ivy League in two years.
Thompson's 7-goal performance matched the 7 goals scored by Cornell's David Kay against Dartmouth on April 7, 2001. Last year, Brown's Jimmy Mormile netted 6 goals against Providence College.
What made Thompson's scoring feat so special was that he was facing the nation's number one defense. Coming into the game, the undefeated Hoyas were yielding just 5.5 goals per game.
Thompson's seven goals vs. Georgetown was not a Brown record. Oliver Marti netted 11 goals vs. New Hampshire in 1993, and current Harvard AD Bob Scalise scored 11 goals for the Bears against Connecticut in 1971.
Thompson is the Ivy League's second leading goal scorer this year with 3.12 goals per game, netting 25 goals.
