PSU Women’s Lacrosse goalie earns Little East Conference honor

Brault represents Panthers on LEC weekly slate

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – The starting goalie on the Plymouth State University women's lacrosse team was recognized with a top weekly honor by the Little East Conference (LEC) Monday for her performance in pair of Panther games last week.

            Junior Meg Brault (South Windsor, Conn.) was named LEC Women's Lacrosse Goalie of the Week for the Panthers. A three-year veteran and first-year starter, Brault receives LEC weekly recognition for the first time in her career.

            A 5-8 netminder, Brault posted a 59.2 save percentage and a 10.00 goals against average in two games last week, helping PSU to a 1-1 record. She made 16 saves Wednesday in a 13-7 win over the University of Southern Maine, and she stopped 13 shots in a 13-12 loss Saturday at Western Connecticut State University. She also collected six ground balls and caused three turnovers in the two games.

            Brault tops the Little East Conference in save percentage for the season, posting a 52.0 mark. She also ranks third in the conference in goals against average (10.13) and total saves (130).

            The Panthers completed the regular season with a 9-6 record and a 3-3 mark in conference games, finishing in a tie for third place in the LEC standings with the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and Western Connecticut.

            PSU is the fourth seed in this week's LEC Tournament, and will host fifth-seeded UMass Dartmouth Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. at Arold Field in a quarterfinal match-up. The Panthers defeated the Corsairs in the regular season meeting, 17-10, on Apr. 2 at Holderness, N.H.
