HAVERFORD, Pa. – Brady Seitz has been named the Centennial Conference Offensive Player of the Week as announced by conference officials. The junior from San Diego, Calif. played a huge role in lifting the Fords to the Centennial Conference Tournament this past week, allowing Haverford to host the conference's opening round game this Wednesday.
Seitz had a hand in each of the Fords' four goals this past week as he scored two goals and assisted on a third in the 3-0 win over Ursinus. On Saturday, Seitz scored with two seconds to play in regulation against rival Swarthmore. His last second tally knotted the score at 1-1. That score stayed level after two overtime sessions, giving Haverford enough points to host a conference tournament game this week.
In his first action of the week, Seitz scored the eventual game-winner goal against Ursinus in the 39th minute of play on Wednesday. He would set up the Fords' second goal with his third assist of the season just over four minutes into the second half before scoring again in the 55th minute of play to cap his five-point performance. Against Swarthmore, Seitz tallied his team-leading 11th goal of the season on a corner kick in the final seconds, lifting the Fords to an eventual draw on the road which eliminated the rival Garnet from playoff contention.
Seitz enters the postseason tournament leading the Centennial Conference in both goals (11) and points (25). In Centennial Conference play, Seitz has scored five goals and recorded 13 points, which also lead the Centennial Conference.
With their spot secured in the Centennial Conference Tournament, the fourth-seeded Fords will host No. 5 Johns Hopkins this Wednesday in a match set to begin at 2 p.m. With a win, the Fords would advance to the final site at Franklin & Marshall for the semifinals and possible championship game. Matches at Franklin & Marshall are scheduled for Saturday and Sunday.
