Panther Freshman on LEC Honor Roll; LEC Tourney Preview

October 27th, 1998 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Plymouth State College will be the third seed in this week’s first annual Little East Conference field hockey tournament, and one of the Panther players was selected to the conference’s Weekly Honor Roll.

Freshman midfielder Danielle Cardin (South Hampton, NH) was named to the honor roll after scoring the only goal of the game in last Thursday’s 1-0 win over Bates College. Cardin came off the Panther bench to notch just her second goal of the season, helping the team to a key non-conference victory.

The Panthers, 7-7 overall under first-year head coach Abby Burbank, finished in a three-way tie for first place in the first year of LEC field hockey. PSC, UMass Dartmouth and Keene State all finished 3-1 in conference games, and according to LEC tie-breaker rules, Keene State is the top seed and tournament host, UMass Dartmouth is the second seed, and Plymouth State is third.

Southern Maine (8-10, 1-3) will host Eastern Connecticut (0-10, 0-4) Thursday for the fourth spot in the weekend tourney. PSC (7-7) will square off against UMass Dartmouth (8-10) in the second semi-final Saturday at 7 p.m. on Keene State’s turf field, with Keene State (13-5) meeting the USM-ECSU winner Saturday in the first game at 5 p.m. The semi-final winners clash Sunday at 1 p.m. for the inaugural LEC crown.

Plymouth State and UMass Dartmouth are certainly familiar with each other, and evenly matched, so it should be quite a contest. The two teams played a double overtime affair last Saturday in North Dartmouth, Mass., with the Corsairs pulling out a 1-0 win and creating the three-way tie atop the standings.

The last regular season game for PSC is Tuesday (Oct.27) in the home finale against nationally-ranked Middlebury (2:00 pm.).

PANTHER NOTES: PSC has two of the top 10 scorers in the LEC. Junior Jill Sutherland (Rockport, MA) is sixth with 18 points (7 goals, 4 assists), and senior Kim Webster (Portsmouth, NH) is tied for 9th with 13 points (4 goals, 5 assists). Sutherland has also moved into 13th place on PSC’s all-time scoring list. In 52 career games, she has 19 goals, nine assists and 47 points.
