MARSHFIELD, Mass. – After a 2-0 weekend, junior goaltender Rachel Myette (Duxbury, Mass.) has been named the New England Hockey Conference (NEHC) Goaltender of the Week.
Last week, Myette helped the Beacons remain in the hunt for a top-3 finish in the NEHC standings after posting wins over New England College and Plymouth State University. In the victory over NEC, Myette collected 21 saves to lead UMB to a 2-1 overtime victory over the Pilgrims. She would record a pair of saves in the final minute of the third period to keep the score even at 1-1. In Saturday's win over Plymouth State, Myette continued her strong play as she tallied 26 stops in the 3-1 decision over the Panthers.
The Beacons will travel to Nichols College on Friday before hosting Manhattanville College on Saturday on senior day. The Beacons currently sit just three points out of second place, with the Valiants sitting in second place.
