CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Senior defender Lindsey Kowal of the Harvard women’s soccer team has been named Ivy League Co-Player of the Week after helping the Crimson to a 1-0-1 mark last week. Kowal shares the honor with Cornell’s Abigail Apistolas.

Kowal, a co-captain of the Crimson from East Meadow, N.Y., handed out a total of three assists last week, as Harvard improved to 7-4-1 overall and 2-0-1 in the Ivy League.
In the Crimson’s 2-1 comeback victory over Fairfield Oct. 4, Kowal dished out two assists in the second half, setting up goals by Peyton Johnson (53:56) and Meg Casscells-Hamby (65:23). The win helped Harvard see its record move to 6-1 at home this fall.
Kowal also handed out an assist in the Crimson’s 2-2 tie at Cornell Saturday, setting up the game’s first goal by teammate Aisha Price at 73:00.
Kowal and the Crimson, who sit in first place in the Ivy with seven points, host Siena in the final non-conference game of the regular season Tuesday at 7 p.m. The game will be played at the Soldiers Field Soccer Stadium.
