They Win It Again
Oct. 19, 2009
Easton, Pa. - For the second time this season, three Leopards received Patriot League field hockey honors. Junior Meghan Cicchi won her second defensive honor, classmate Kelsey Andersen won her third goalkeeper honor and freshman Deanna DiCroce won her second rookie of the week award, in addition to her two previous offensive honors as well.
Lafayette (11-4) took down archrival Lehigh on Saturday afternoon, 3-0, and Rutgers Sunday afternoon, 2-0. Dicroce had three goals in two games, and scored her sixth game-winning goal against Rutgers.
Cicchi played every minute of the two shutout wins this weekend. She was the center of a defense that held her opponents to six shots in two games. She also had an assist on a goal against Rutgers.
Andersen recorded her eighth shutout of the season, a season high. She has not allowed a goal in the past three games for the Leopards. She sports a .781 save percentage and 1.17 goals-against average.
The Leopards travel to Philadelphia to take on Drexel Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. before taking on Patriot League opponent American at home on Saturday at noon in their final regular season home game.
