High-scoring Eriksen, hard-hitting Weeks made perfect captain combo

High-scoring Eriksen, hard-hitting Weeks make perfect captain combo


Does he mind that the goal-scorers often get most of the credit while the defenders are left with the dirty work?

“You can be the silent killer,” he said. “You can change a game with just one play or one run up the field. You can even put one home once in a while. I scored two goals last week. I just took two shots and they both went in. I had never scored a goal at home, so that was great.”

Weeks will soon take his talents to Division 1 college lacrosse, playing for UMass Amherst.

“They contacted me the fall of my junior year,” he said. “I visited and just fell in love with the school right away. I can’t wait to compete at the highest level.”

But the two are still focused on delivering a big final season for the Golden Warriors.

“I can seriously see us going far,” Eriksen said. “At the beginning of this year, we were still trying to find our roles. But when we have everything clicking, I can’t see another team that we can’t beat.”
