Yellin Named Ivy League Player of the Week

Oct. 29, 2007

PROVIDENCE, RI - For the second time in three weeks, sophomore goalie Steffi Yellin (Savannah, GA) has been named Ivy League Player of the Week. Yellin was instrumental in Brown's 2-0 week as the Bears recorded two shutouts, 4-0 over Sacred Heart, and 1-0 over Ivy-leading Penn (previously 4-0 in the League) in double-overtime. Senior Kerrilynn Carney (North Smithfield, RI) was named to the weekly honor roll after scoring the game-winning goal against the Quakers on a free kick with 18 seconds left in the second overtime.

Yellin picked up her sixth shutout of the season, her third in a row, and fourth in five games on Sunday, stopping six shots in the game, including three in the second half and two during the first overtime. The shutout over Penn stretched her scoreless streak to 291:59 and lowered her GAA to 1.36 and raised her save percentage to .767. With six shutouts this season, Yellin also moved into sixth place all-time at Brown for shutouts in a season. In the Ivy League, Yellin has a 0.96 GAA, an .861 save percentage, second in the League, and a league-leading three shutouts.

The Bears return to action on Saturday, November 3, when they travel to Yale for a 7:00 p.m. contest.
