Cannizzaro, Waldt named men's players of the week

  Cannizzaro scored six goals in Denver’s 12-11 victory over then-No. 18 Villanova on Saturday.

Every week during the regular season, we’ll award an NCAA.com Offensive and Defensive Player of the Week for Division I men’s lacrosse.

Offensive Player of the Week

Connor Cannizzaro | Denver | Jr. | A | Cazenovia, New York

Cannizzaro scored six goals, including the game-winning strike in Denver’s 12-11 victory over then-No. 18 Villanova in a deluge of sleet and snow Saturday.

In addition to the sock trick, Cannizzaro was the lone scorer of the third period, collecting a natural hat trick to put the Pioneers ahead 10-6. After the Wildcats’ rally, the junior fed off Trevor Baptiste’s faceoff win to net the game-winning goal with 2:58 remaining in the fourth.

Defensive Player of the Week

Gunnar Waldt | Bryant | Sr. | G | Freeland, Maryland

Waldt tallied 22 saves and a .618 save percentage in Bryant’s victories over then-No. 2 Brown and Wagner last week.

The senior turned away 17 shots in the Bulldogs’ 11-10 overtime victory against the Bears, holding the nation’s top scoring offense to a season low output.

Waldt allowed just three goals in 49 minutes of work in an 18-5 win over Wagner.

Honorable Mention: AJ Barretto, Army West Point (defense); Kyle Bernlohr, Maryland (defense); Andy DeMichiei, Marquette (offense); Brian Feldman, Quinnipiac (offense); Nick Marrocco, Georgetown (defense); Shane Morrell, Bryant (offense); John Sexton, Notre Dame (defense).
