Langley's Kyle Belton earned player of the week honours after scoring five goals in a 12-11 victory for the Stony Brook Seawolves.

Kyle Belton is in peak form as his university career winds down.

Belton scored a career-best five goals, including the game-winning score with eight seconds remaining, in Stony Brook’s 12-11 victory over Albany in field lacrosse action on Saturday.

He also had an assist to finish with six points and on Monday was named America East player of the week.

The win propelled the Seawolves to their third straight America East regular season title and the top seed for the upcoming conference championship.

Belton, who is from Langley, also plays box lacrosse with the senior A Langley Thunder. He helped the Thunder win their first-ever Western Lacrosse Association championship in 2011.
