BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Week
Vanessa Skrumbis, Georgetown, Sr., F
Skrumbis ignited Georgetown’s high-scoring offense this week with a combined four goals and one assist for nine points over two games. The Hoyas, who knocked off North Carolina State and Towson last week, remained unbeaten thanks in part to Skrumbis’ two goals and one assist against the Wolfpack and two goals against the Tigers. The senior has turned in two-goal games three times this season as her 13 points in 2014 lead all BIG EAST players.
BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Week
Kristyn Shea, Providence, So., GK
Shea led the Friars to an unbeaten (1-0-1) week by allowing just one goal in over 207 minutes played in goal. The sophomore goalkeeper stopped seven shots in a 0-0 double-overtime draw against Northeastern on Thursday, including one in OT, before rejecting five shots, including one in the extra period, in a 1-0 overtime win against Massachusetts on Sunday. For the week, Shea made 12 saves and sported a .434 goals against average with a shutout.
BIG EAST Rookie of the Week
Elizabeth Endy, DePaul, Fr., D
Endy anchored the DePaul defense which recorded its first shutout of the season and maintained the Blue Demons’ undefeated record. The freshman started both games at defense for DePaul, a 1-0 win at Towson and a 4-2 win at Loyola-Maryland, helping to limit the Tigers to just four shots as the Blue Demons outshot their opponents 17-14 last week, including a 9-8 advantage in strikes on goal.
