PLYMOUTH, N.H. - The center-midfielder for the Plymouth State College field hockey team has been honored by the Little East Conference for her performance in three games last week.

 Junior Megan Fournier (East Waterboro, ME) was selected to the LEC Player of the Week after leading the Panthers to a 3-0 week with two goals and one assist. Included in the Panthers' week was a 2-1 upset of arch-rival Keene State, which was ranked sixth in the nation.

A 5'8" center-midfielder, Fournier scored a goal and an assist in a 3-2 overtime win last Tuesday at Westfield State. She added a first half goal Thursday to lead PSC to a 2-0 victory over the Trinity College Bantoms. She played a strong game and put forth a valiant effort to help produce the 2-1 conference win over defending champion and pre-season favorite Keene State. Fournier is a two-sport athlete at Plymouth State, as she is also a starter in the Panther women's basketball team.

The Panthers have won four consecutive games, putting them at 4-3 overall. PSC is also 3-0 in the LEC and shares first place with the University of Southern Maine. P

lymouth State is off to battle the Huskies on Wednesday (Sept. 27) at 4 p.m., and returns to Arold Field on Tuesday (Oct. 3) for a 3 p.m. game against conference foe Salem State.
