            Junior Jack Astedt was named MASCAC Goalie of the Week for the third time in four weeks this season.  He helped the Panthers to a 2-1 week in three one-goal games, including a 1-0 overtime victory over New England College, which was ranked #16 in last week's Division III national poll.

            A 6'1", 175-pound netminder, Astedt went 2-1 with a 1.63 goals against average, a .945 saves percentage and one shutout.  He made 19 saves in Tuesday's 1-0 overtime win over NEC for his second whitewash of the season; stopped 37 shots in Thursday's 3-2 conference victory at Salem State; and made 30 saves in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss at Worcester State.

            Astedt leads the MASCAC with a 1.97 goals against average and a .928 saves percentage on the young season.  He also ranks 17th in the nation in Division III in goals against average and 14th in save percentage.

            Plymouth State, 6-2-0 overall and 3-1-0 in the MASCAC, wraps up the first semester this week with a pair of home conference games at Hanaway Rink;  the Panthers host UMass Dartmouth on Thursday and Fitchburg State on Saturday, both games at 6:00 p.m.
