(Carlisle, Pa.) - Dickinson first-year forward Alfred Hylton-Dei (Geneva, Switzerland/Mercersburg Academy, Pa.) was named the Centennial Conference men's soccer Offensive Player of the Week.


Hylton-Dei had a huge night against Gwynedd-Mercy, scoring twice and handing out three assists in the match. Hylton-Dei tallied assists on the Devils' first and third goals of the game, feeding junior Javier Mena (San Salvador, El Salvador/The American School) on both, and finishing an assist from Mena on the second to put Dickinson in front early in the game.


The Red Devils also posted a 3-0 win over Washington College to open the 2012 Centennial Conference schedule. They improved to 6-0 overall and 1-0 in the CC. They are scheduled to travel to Messiah College for a 7:00 pm kick-off on Tuesday night.


The Red Devil Women's Soccer Team is also off to a great start, winning their first five contests before suffering the first setback of the season on Saturday, as Haverford slipped away with a 1-0 win. The Red Devil women earned Centennial Conference Player of the Week honors in each of the first two weeks of competition.


First-year Jenna Lamb (Fairfax, Va./Robinson Secondary) was the Offensive Player of the Week after scoring three goals and handing out three assists to lead Dickinson to the Red Devil Classic Title on opening weekend. Senior Marissa Kunkle (Perkasie, Pa./Pennridge) was last week's Defensive Player of the Week as the Devils improved to 5-0 with a pair of wins. Kunkle anchored a solid defensive effort and scored the game-winning goal as the Devils handed Wilkes University its first loss.


The Red Devil football team earned Centennial Conference Defensive and Special Teams Player of the Week honors last week as well. Sophomore Mitch Helmandollar (Glenolden, Pa./Interboro) was selected on defense, recording a pair of interceptions, including one on the goal line.


The Red Devil special teams were honored as well, blocking a pair of punts that were recovered for touchdowns to lead Dickinson past the Eagles, 24-17. Read more
