Sharon senior Emma Eberhardt has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for April 7 through April 13. Eberhardt is the 25th player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2018-19 school year and the second player in the spring season.
Eberhardt, a senior midfielder, was the primary offensive threat for the Eagles during a two-win week, which included Sharon’s first league win of the season. The Lehigh University-commit scored 12 goals, assisted on three others, snagged 13 draw controls, and scooped 13 ground balls, providing the Eagles with an all-around game to push their record to 3-1 this season.
“Emma is a fantastic leader, she has an ability to focus our team, to share her insight on the game, and to get our team pumped up,” said Sharon coach Shara Ginthwain. “She works hard to not only make herself better but to also help younger players improve their games as well. Her lacrosse IQ allows her to read plays anticipate passes, and get to the ball before her opponent. She really can do it all and our team is lucky to have her!”
Eberhardt started the week by helping Sharon beat Canton for its first league win. She was a factor in all eight of Sharon’s goals, scoring five times and assisting on the other three. Two days later the Eagles beat North Attleboro in a non-league game and Eberhardt was once again in the middle of everything Sharon had going on offense. She scored seven of the team’s 15 goals to extend the team’s win streak to three games since the season-opening loss to King Philip.
The Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, is selected by the HockomockSports.com staff. Nominations can be submitted throughout the week up until Saturday night at midnight. There may be a poll posted on every Sunday with the nominations. The results of the poll influence the selection but do not strictly dictate the decision.
