PLYMOUTH, N.H. – The Plymouth State College women’s soccer program has four players who were named to the Little East Conference All-Star team, it was announced Thursday. Three Panthers were named to the First Team, all at playing different positions, and one was named to the Second Team.

Juniors Caitlin Cook (Cutchogue, NY) and Erin Pepe (Franklin, MA) and sophomore Mary Young (Rockland, MA) were all named to the LEC All-Star First Team. Junior Tara Dickson (Sussex, NJ) was voted in to the LEC Second Team.

Forward Caitlin Cook led the team offensively, scoring 10 goals and passing for three assists. She finished sixth in the LEC with 23 points, averaging 1.44 points per game. The junior was named Player of the Week on Sept. 28th, with her five goals scored and two assists in two games. Cook’s all-star season also came with a hat trick, which came against Bridgewater State.

Midfielder Erin Pepe was also one of PSC’s top players, scoring a goal and four assists. Pepe played in all 17 regular season games including an ECAC playoff game at Gordon College. The junior was also named to the LEC All-Star Second Team in 1996.

Defender Mary Young led the Panther defense, as the team allowed just 141 total shots on goal in 17 games. Young frustrated the opposition by shutting down their forwards and not allowing free looks to the net. The sophomore led a defense that combined to shutout out opponents six times. Young also contributed to the offense from her defensive position by scoring two goals.

Midfielder Tara Dickson was a defensive specialist, who also kept the ball out of the Panther zone. She is a two-time LEC All-Star, having received Second Team honors back in the 1996 season as well. The junior had three points on one goal and one assist this season, and has 15 goals and 10 assists in her career.

First-year head coach Beth Field led the Panthers to a 5-2-0 mark in the LEC and a 9-7-2 overall record. The Panthers qualified for post-season play for the 16th straight year, but their season came to an end when they took a nail-biting loss to Gordon in the ECAC Tournament in a match decided by penalty kicks.
