LEC Honor for Poulin

PLYMOUTH, N.H. - The leading scorer on the Plymouth State College women's soccer team has been recognized by the Little East Conference for scoring six goals in three games last week.

Junior forward Carrie Poulin (Westfield, Mass.) was named LEC Player of the Week for her outstanding offensive performance. She helped PSC win all three games over Colby-Sawyer, Brandeis and LEC foe UMass Boston.

A 5'3" forward, Poulin scored two goals in the 4-0 win over Colby-Sawyer last Monday. She followed that up with the first goal of the game in a 2-1 win over Brandeis on Wednesday, and rounded out the week with a hat trick Saturday in a 12-0 rout at UMass Boston.

Poulin has tallied nine goals in six games this season to lead the LEC in scoring. She is having her best season since 1997, when she scored a school-record 22 goals and was named Second Team All-America.

The Panthers, 5-1-0 under second-year head coach Rebecca Lisack, are ranked 10th in this week's National Soccer Coaches Association of America Division III New England poll. PSC plays its next game at home this Thursday (Sept. 21) against St. Michael's College (4 p.m.).
