The senior was involved in both game-winning goals last week as the Royals took over first place in the ODAC standings. In Wednesday’s dramatic win over Hampden-Sydney, Leap assisted on Muoka Musau‘s (Ashburn, VA/Stone Bridge) game-winning goal in the 69th minute.
Then on Saturday, Leap scored the game-winner in the 77th minute on a breakaway shot from the 18.
He is tied for second in the ODAC with eight goals and is second with 18 points. Leap also tops the league with five game-winning goals. The forward is on top of all three categories in ODAC-only games.
With the goal at Guilford, Leap took over sole possession of fourth place on EMU’s Career Goals list at 33, ahead of Jeff Shank (1990-93). His 75 career points has him fifth on that list, behind Shank’s 86.
Eastern Mennonite grabbed first place in the ODAC standings last week with wins over Hampden-Sydney and Guilford. The Royals, 5-1, have as many wins in ODAC play as they have had since going 7-1-1 in 1998, which is the last time they won the conference tourney.
The men, now 7-6-1 overall, are off until they host Virginia Wesleyan Saturday night as part of EMU’s Homecoming.
