PSC Players Named All-NEWLA

May 4th, 1998 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H. – The first New England Women’s Lacrosse All-Alliance Team includes five players from Plymouth State College.

The five Panthers selected to the 1998 All-Alliance team include seniors Carrie Killeen (Greenfield, MA) and Danielle Paradis (Londonderry, NH) and
sophomore Amanda Beedy (New Hampton, NH) at attack, junior Samantha Guthrie (Falmouth, MA) on defense, and junior Brenna Matarazzo (Salem, NH)
in goal.

The five were instrumental in PSC’s successful performance in the NEWLA’s inaugural season. The Panthers went 8-1 in regular season NEWLA games
and tied New England College for first place in the Northern Division. After knocking off Colby-Sawyer in a first-round NEWLA play-off game, PSC was ousted
by New England College last Friday, 11-9. Plymouth State finished the season with a 9-7 overall record under sixth-year coach Wynn Hohlt, a dramatic
improvement over last year’s 3-14 campaign.

Killeen, Paradis and Beedy led a Panther offense that nearly doubled last year’s output. After scoring 105 goals in 17 games in 1997, PSC turned in a
200-goal performance in 16 games in 1998. The scoring was spread out very evenly, as Paradis and Killeen tied for the team goal-scoring lead with 44 apiece, and
Beedy contributed 42 scores. Paradis and Beedy shared the team assist lead with 21 set-ups, as all three players finished with more than 50 points.

Those three have also made their marks on PSC’s all-time scoring list. Killeen and Paradis finish their four-year careers fifth and seventh, respectively, on
the career chart, Killeen with 138 points (106 goals, 32 assists) and Paradis with 104 points (68 goals, 36 assists). Beedy is tied for 13th with her 63 points, after
only one year in a Panther uniform.

Guthrie and Matarazzo backboned a Panther defense that also was dramatically improved over ’97, reducing the number of goals allowed from 228 to 162.
Guthrie posted team-highs of 73 ground ball pick-ups and 37 caused turnovers, along with 12 draw controls. Matarazzo posted a 5-0 won lost record with a
league-best 8.36 goals against average and .551 saves percentage. A first-year lacrosse goalie, Matarazzo split time in the Panther net with freshman Lisa
Goldberg (Newton, MA).
