AMHERST, Mass. - Evan Redwood ’12 (Lutherville, Md.) and Danny Gold ’13 (Plandome, N.Y.) have been named to the men's lacrosse all-conference second team after helping Amherst to a 9-7 (5-5 NESCAC) record in 2012.

Garnering his third All-NESCAC selection, this is Redwood’s second-consecutive appointment to the second team. Finishing the season ranked fifth in the league in points (48), he dished out the second most assists in the conference (23), while putting away 25 goals in his 16 appearances.

Winning the NESCAC’s first Player of the Week award of the year after registering five goals and three assists in a pair of wins over Colby and Bates, Redwood continued to roll through the first two weeks of the season, amassing 16 goals and 12 assists in the Jeffs’ 7-0 start.

Cooling off a bit during the middle of the year, he regained his form at the tail end of 2012, scoring in Amherst’s final three games. Registering a season-high seven points with four goals and three helpers in a big 15-11 win over archrival Williams, he tallied three more points in the regular season finale against Trinity, before scoring his final collegiate goal in a NESCAC quarterfinal game with top-seeded Tufts.

Tallying eight multi-goal and six multiple assist games this year, Redwood wraps up a stellar career with 157 career points on 82 goals and 75 assists. Recording a career-best .671 shot-on-goal percentage this season, he netted at least 20 scores for the third-straight year, while handing out 20 or more assists for the second-consecutive time.

Playing an integral role in the Jeffs’ defensive efforts as a long-stick midfielder, Gold started 14 of the team’s 16 games, ranking fifth in the league in caused turnovers (20), while sitting second on the squad in ground balls (41).

Tracking down four ground balls, while causing four turnovers against Colby in the season opener, he caused a season-high five miscues against Marywood, before picking up five ground balls against Wesleyan to cap off an eight-game stretch in which the Jeffs surrendered just 7.88 goals per game.

Scoring one of his two goals against Trinity, while handing out his lone assist against Williams, Gold was also instrumental in helping Amherst rank among the league leaders in penalty-killing percentage (.790). Over their final four games, the Jeffs successfully shut down 19 of their opponents’ 22 (.864) of man-up opportunities, without surrendering a goal in their last 10 man-down situations.
