BOSTON -- Liz MacKay (Scituate, Mass.), a senior goalkeeper on the University of New Hampshire women's soccer team, was named Player of the Week by America East on Monday.
MacKay went 1-0-1 last week with a 0.45 goals-against-average and .857 save percentage as she stopped six of seven shots in 200 minutes. She recorded her second shutout of the season and sixth of her career with a three-save effort vs. the University of Massachusetts as the Wildcats defeated the Minutewomen for the first time in school history, 1-0 on Sept. 12. MacKay also had three saves in UNH's 1-1 draw vs. Dartmouth on Sept. 9, and that result snapped a 12-match losing streak to the Big Green that dated back to a 2-0 Wildcat win in 1991.
In six matches this season (all starts and a total of 535 minutes), MacKay has a 2-2-2 record with a 1.68 GAA and .714 save percentage. In 41 career games, she has a 12-14-7 overall record with a 1.38 GAA and .737 save percentage in 2979:07 of action.
UNH, unbeaten in three games at 1-0-2, is 2-2-2 overall and returns to action Sept. 17 (7 p.m.) at Brown. The next Wildcat home game is Sept. 19 vs. Harvard. Game time at Lewis Fields is 1 p.m.
