Emala Shares ACC Player of Week Accolade
Release: 04/02/2013
GREENSBORO, N.C. - North Carolina senior midfielder Davey Emala and Maryland sophomore attackman Jay Carlson have been named Atlantic Coast Conference Men's Lacrosse Co-Offensive Players of the Week as announced Tuesday by the conference.
 
Davey Emala scored three goals on just three shots and had one caused turnover in North Carolina's 11-10 overtime win over No. 10 Johns Hopkins. After scoring the opening goal of the game, Emala then added a second score with 3:54 left in the first quarter to give the Tar Heels their largest lead of the game at 4-1.  In the second quarter, Emala's trail check on a fast break caused a turnover and denied the Blue Jays an excellent scoring opportunity that could have tied the game.
 
The native of Baltimore, Md., scored the game-tying goal for North Carolina with 1:30 left in the fourth quarter, forcing overtime where the Tar Heels won on a goal six seconds in by R.G. Keenan. It is the second career weekly award for Emala and the first since Feb. 14, 2012.
