BOSTON, Mass. – After her two game-winning goals last week, and her first NEHC Player of the Week honor on Monday, senior forward Jane Morrisette (Pembroke, Mass.) has now been named to the D3Hockey.com Team of the Week.
Morrisette becomes the first Beacon to earn a spot on the team of the week. Last Friday, Morrisette carried the Beacons to a crucial 4-3 overtime win over the University of Southern Maine. The Pembroke native had a hand in both the game-tying and game-winning goals. She would first assist the tying goal with 14 seconds remaining in the third period.
In the OT, she would score perhaps one of the top goals this season. Morrisette beat the Huskies defense, before knocking in the game-winner shorthanded with just over one-minute left.
Against the University of New England, Morrisette scored the game-winning goal with 20 seconds left in regulation. The senior sniped the top corner to give the Beacons the crucial conference win, which also secured the second-seed in the NEHC Tournament.
