BOSTON, Mass. - Sarah Cahill (Lexington, Mass.), a sophomore attack on the University of New Hampshire women's lacrosse team, was named Defender of the Week by America East on Tuesday evening.
Cahill came off the bench to record a team-high four caused turnovers, one ground ball and one draw control while not committing a turnover in UNH's 18-6 victory against the University at Albany on April 1. She also netted her first career goal in the game and scored another first-half goal to lead the Wildcats to a decisive 14-3 halftime advantage. Cahill finished with three goals.
Cahill, whose playing time was restricted by injury last season, scored a second-half goal in New Hampshire's 15-6 loss to Brown University on Tuesday. The former Lexington High School standout has four goals and one assist in six games this season.
New Hampshire (5-3) returns to action April 6 against the University of Vermont. The game, originally scheduled at UNH's Memorial Field, will be played at Omni Turf Field on the campus of the Massachussetts Institute of Technology. Game time is 2:30 p.m.
