PLYMOUTH, N.H. - The goaltender on the Plymouth State College ice hockey team, who is one of the top Division III goalies in the nation this season, has earned Eastern College Athletic Conference honors for his performance for the Panthers last week.
Freshman Larry Forgue (Nashua, NH) was named to the ECAC Northeast Weekly Honor Roll, the fourth time this season he has received ECAC honors. The rookie netminder made 27 saves in a win over Curry College last Saturday, and kept Plymouth State in the hunt for a Northeast Division play-off berth.
A 5'8", 155-pounder, Forgue continued his superb freshman campaign. He leads the 18-team ECAC Northeast in both goals against average (2.15) and saves percentage (.933). In fact, Forgue is ranked second in the NCAA Division III in saves percentage and fifth in goals against.
Forgue was the ECAC Northeast Rookie of the Week after a solid performance for PSC last month, and has been on the ECAC Weekly Honor Roll three other times.
PSC, 11-8 overall and 8-4 in league games under first-year head coach Mike Bonelli, is on target for one of the eight ECAC Northeast play-off berths (out of 18 teams). The Panthers are alone in seventh place with 16 points, two points behind Fitchburg State and Tufts and one point ahead of Stonehill.
Plymouth State plays four of its final five regular season games at home (Waterville Valley Ice Arena), beginning Wednesday (Feb. 10) against Suffolk University (7:00 p.m.). PSC will also host title contender Fitchburg State this Saturday (Feb. 13) at Waterville Valley (7:00 p.m.).
The Panthers have already equaled last year's win total, when the team finished 11-14-1 overall.
