Mante honored

Yale junior punter/kicker Tom Mante was named the Ivy League Special Teams Player of the Week after averaging 41 yards on five punts, putting four punts inside the 20 including three inside the 10 and kicked two field goals.

Senior defensive tackle Kyle Hawari did not get the nod as the league's defensive player of the week despite making eight solo tackles with two sacks and two forced fumbles. Hawari and senior running back Mike McLeod (85 yards rushing and three touchdowns, 25 receiving yards) did make the Ivy League honor roll. Senior safety Larry Abare's 13 tackles weren't enough to secure him at least a mention on the honor roll.

Yale, which plays at Brown on Saturday at 12:30 p.m., is now ranked first among Football Championship Subdivision teams in scoring defense (13.1 points per game) and second in turnover margin (1.43).
