Hamilton (North Vancouver, British Columbia) recorded a hat trick in the Black Bears' lone game of the week, a 5-3 win over Quinnipiac on Friday, to earn Player of the Week honors for the first time in her career. The sophomore midfielder, who racked up seven shots in the game, helped stake Maine to a 3-0 lead with a pair of goals just 1:30 apart in the first half. She then added an insurance tally in the 67th minute after the Bearcats trimmed the deficit to 4-2.
Maroney (Media, Pa.) stopped all seven shots on goal she faced as she played in the second half of both Boston U. games last week and earned Defensive Player of the Week accolades for the second time this year. The senior goalkeeper held #25 UMass scoreless through the second half and overtime to allow the Terriers to pick up a 3-2 victory. Against Virginia on Sunday, Maroney held the Cavaliers scoreless, stopping all three shots she faced.
Coll (Greymouth, New Zealand) scored the game-winning goal in Boston U.'s 3-2 double-overtime win vs. UMass and picked up Rookie of the Week accolades as a result. The freshman forward scored 51 seconds into the second overtime to give Boston U. the win. The score was the first of her career.
