By Brett Manney
Each week during the 2012 season, ESPNHS Lacrosse will select a player from each of four regions as Player of the Week.
To submit a player for consideration fill out our submission form here. Please be sure to provide the player’s entire week's worth of performances. Athletes can earn Player of the Week honors just once during the 2012 regular season.
The following players are for the week of May 12 through 19.
Timmy Farrell, Jr., Gonzaga (Washington, D.C.), goalie In the Purple Eagles’ 10-3 win over rival DeMatha (Hyattsville, Md.), Farrell and his defense frustrated the Stags' offense all night. In the win, Farrell collected eight saves to help the Eagles collect their third-straight Washington Catholic Athletic Conference title and finish the season with a convincing win. Farrell was a rock between the pipes for the Eagles, helping them achieve a successful 20-win season and a Top 5 ranking in the POWERADE FAB 50.
Patrick DiMento, Memphis University School (Memphis, Tenn.), attack When the game was on the line, DiMento became the hero by scoring the game-winning goal with 11 seconds left in the Tennessee state championship on May 19. After trailing 11-8 with three minutes left, the Owls surged to a remarkable recovery to win 12-11 against Brentwood (Tenn.) behind DiMento’s four goals, including the eventual game winner.
Colin MacIlvennie, Soph., Eastside Catholic (Sammamish, Wash.), midfield The future Maryland Terrapin had a huge game, collecting six points with four goals and two assists in a 12-5 quarterfinal win over Lake Tapps on May 18. Recently named First Team All-State by the Washington High School Boys Lacrosse Association, MacIlvennie was unstoppable at midfield by helping Eastside Catholic advance to the Division I Washington state semifinals.
Chris Beith, Sr., Dublin Jerome (Dublin, Ohio), attack As a veteran attackman, Beith did what he does best in Dublin Jerome’s 10-9 victory over rival Upper Arlington (Columbus, Ohio) on May 12. Beith scored four goals in the win helping keep Dublin Jerome undefeated on the season. With the state playoffs approaching the High Point recruit will look to repeat his recent success and help Dublin get another state title.
