O’Grady Named Little East Defensive Player of the Week

PAWTUCKET, R.I. – After leading the Beacons to a pair of 2-0 victories, forward turned center back Jaclyn O'Grady (Somers, Conn.) was named the Little East Conference Defensive Player of the Week.

Last week, UMass Boston produced their first 2-0 week of the 2017 season as they defeated Wentworth Institute and the University of Southern Maine in shutout fashion.  In Saturday's win over the Huskies, the junior netted the game-winner midway through the second half to give UMB the late 1-0 lead.  That victory was then sealed with less than 10 minutes to play with their second goal of the affair.

UMB now sits in the top-4 in the conference standings, and currently are riding a three game unbeaten streak (2-0-1).
