PSC Earns Top LEC Honor for Third Straight Week

September 29th, 1998 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H. – For the third straight week, a Plymouth State College field hockey player has received the top weekly honor from the Little East Conference.

Junior forward Jill Sutherland (Rockport, MA) was selected LEC Co-Player of the Week after scoring three goals in two games for the nationally-ranked Panthers. She helped the Panthers in a 1-1 week, including last Saturday’s 3-1 victory over Keene State in the conference opener.
Sutherland shared the LEC honor with Keene State’s Amy Wallace.

Sutherland scored once in PSC’s overtime loss to New England College last Tuesday, and came back with two goals in the big Homecoming win over Keene State. She has taken over the PSC scoring lead and is tied for third in the LEC with four goals and two assists. She also improved her career totals to 16 goals and seven assists (39 points) in 45 games.

The LEC Player of the Week honor has gone to PSC players the previous two times as well — freshman goalkeeper Martha Dennerly (Concord, NH) two weeks ago and classmate Katie Dodge (Sanbornton, NH) last week.

Other Panther players listed among the current LEC scoring leaders include Dodge, Kim Webster (Portsmouth, NH), Sacha Jackson (Sangerville, ME) and Holly Laratta (Toms River, NJ). Dodge (three goals), Webster (two goals, two assists) and Jackson (one goal, four assists) are tied for ninth with six points, and Laratta is tied for 13th with five points (two goals, one assist). PSC’s two goalkeepers, Dennerly, who has a 1.71 goals against average, and Chris Perruzzi (South Portland, ME), with a 2.34 average, are ranked second and sixth, respectively, in the LEC in goals against average.

The Panthers, 4-3 overall and 1-0 in the LEC, have eight new starters in the line-up this season under first-year coach Abby Burbank. They have another LEC encounter Tuesday (Sept. 29) at Southern Maine (3:30 p.m.), then return home Saturday (Oct. 3) to host Bentley College at Arold Field (1:00 p.m.).
