Poillon gets America East honor

UMBC senior midfielder Peet Poillon was named the America East Conference Player of the Week for registering career highs in goals (four), assists (three) and points (seven) in the No. 5 Retrievers' 17-10 victory over Rutgers on Saturday.

Poillon, who transferred from Ohio State in July, leads the team in points (10) and assists (five). The first midfield unit of Poillon, junior Kyle Wimer (eight goals and one assist for nine points) and senior Alex Hopmann (four and one for five points) rank 1-2-3 in points for UMBC, which is attempting to open the season with three consecutive wins for the first time since 2001.
