Co-PLAYERS OF THE WEEK:
Jonel Boileau • Hofstra
Kelowna, BC, Canada/Kelowna Secondary, Jr.,Forward

Boileau played a big role in helping the Pride earn a 1-1 split last week thanks to her performance in a 4-3 overtime victory over Yale on Sunday. The Canadian forward recorded a hat trick, scoring in the first half to tie the game at 1-1, in the second half to put Hofstra ahead 2-1 and finished the afternoon with the game-winner just 5:08 into OT.

Michaela Patzner • Delaware
Rosenheim, Germany/Karolinen Gymnasium, So., Midfielder

Patzner had a solid weekend for the Blue Hens, collecting three goals over two games to help her team improve to 5-1. In a 2-0 win over No. 11 Temple, she tallied the Blue Hens’ first goal as Delaware defeated an opponent ranked 11th or higher for the first time since 2009. Patzner completed the week with two goals scored in a 5-1 rout of Michigan State on Sunday.

ROOKIE OF THE WEEK:
Maddie O’Beirne • Delaware
Vienna, Va./George C. Marshall, Fr., Midfield

O’Beirne scored two goals over the weekend, both of which came in Delaware’s 5-1 victory over Michigan State on Sunday. The Vienna, Va., native ranks second on her team with three goals for seven points this season. O’Beirne not only joins her teammate Patzner on this week’s honors list, but becomes the second consecutive Blue Hen to earn the ROTW award after Esmee Peet earned the distinction last week.

CAA QUICK HITS:

  • Delaware rattled off two impressive wins over the week to move to 5-1 overall. The Blue Hens defeat No. 11 Temple on Friday, with Patzner supplying the first goal – her fifth of the season – and senior Heather Hartman adding the other score. Hartman’s goal, which provided some extra insurance, was just the third of her career. On Sunday, UD rolled past Michigan State, 5-1, while Patzner and O’Beirne each netted two goals apiece.
  • Drexel only played one contest this past week, but the Dragons found the win column and moved to 3-2 with a 2-0 victory over Bucknell. Senior co-captain Elise Didonato and Margaux Lourtie both scored in the second half to help Drexel secure the win.
  • Hofstra split its two games over the weekend, with both contests going into overtime. On Friday, the Pride fell to Rider, 2-1, in OT, though sophomore Charlotte Loehr registered her first career goal in defeat. In Friday’s 4-3 overtime victory over Yale, Boileau came through with a hat trick, and scored the game-winner 5:08 into the extra period to give the Pride the win. HU now has a 3-4 record.
  • James Madison also earned a split in its only two games this past week. On Wednesday, in a 4-2 road victory at Longwood, the Dukes had four different players provide all the offense they needed. Saskia Chelowski, Taylor West, Erin Gallivan and Rosalie Becker all scored. Gallivan and Becker’s goals were the first of their careers. JMU (3-3) lost 1-0 at Richmond on Sunday despite outshooting the Spiders 12-7.
  • Keeping the theme going, Northeastern also went 1-1 over the week and now stands at 3-2 on the season. Friday’s 5-0 victory over Dartmouth was special for coach Cheryl Murtagh because it marked the 350th win of her coaching career. Five different players found the net for the Huskies, while freshman goalkeeper Becky Garner made five saves. On Sunday, NU fell on the road to UNH, 3-1, with Natalie Stewart providing the lone goal and Garner again making five saves in the setback.
  • Towson dropped its two games of the week to VCU on Friday (3-1) and St. Joseph’s (1-0) on Sunday. The Tigers led Friday’s game 1-0 at the half following a goal from Kathleen Morris, but the Rams broke out with three scores in the second half. Sunday’s 1-0 loss to St. Joes was the team’s third one-goal defeat of the season.
  • William & Mary arguably had the toughest task over the week, facing two ACC ranked foes on the road. In a 2-1 loss versus No. 9 Duke on Friday, senior Taylor Hodge scored her team-leading third goal of the year. The Tribe fell to 2-4 on the season after a tough 4-0 defeat at No. 18 Wake Forest on Sunday. Goalkeeper Cate Johnson started the game and made five saves, while Meredith Savage replaced her and made two saves.
