After her electric double-overtime game-winning goal against Dartmouth over the weekend, freshman Livia Loozen is our DP Sports Player of the Week.

Senior captain Elita Van Staden found Loozen on a vertical pass, which the freshman coolly received and converted into the net. 

Loozen was named Ivy League Offensive Player of the Week for her crucial impact in the final minutes of the game. In her 48 minutes on the field, Loozen marked two shots. Her one shot on goal ended in the net and claimed the Quakers the game with a score of 3-2, ending their 7-10 overall, 4-3 Ivy League season on a high note.  

As a freshman, the Netherlands native came in and made a sizable impact on the team, playing in all 17 games this season and starting in seven of them. Loozen also scored a total of three goals, two of them being game-winners, and an assist in her first collegiate season.
