Allan Named NEC Player of the Week
Quinnipiac sophomore Danielle Allan (Riverdale, N.J.) was named the Northeast Conference Field Hockey Co-Player of the Week on Monday, Sept. 24 as announced by the conference office. Allan was honored with the weekly award along with Bryant's Rosie Bird. The second-year Bobcat announced her return to the Bobcats' lineup after missing the team's first four games of the regular season while recovering from an injury. Eased back into action in her first three games back, Allan put the pedal down against Maine and American this weekend, scoring in both games
All-Time NEC Honors
Allan is the second Quinnipiac player this season - joining tri-captain Jennalise Taylor - to earn NEC Player of the Week honors and the 27th player in program history.
Brown comes to town on Wednesday with a record of 2-4, including losses in their last three games to Bryant (2-0), Columbia (4-1) and Dartmouth (3-2). The Bears are currently 0-2 on the road this season. Clayton Christus and Hannah Rogers lead the Brown attack, both posting three-goal, one-assist stat lines. In goal, Shannon McSweeney is 2-4 with a .741 save percentage and a 3.67 goals-against average.
All-Time Against Brown
Quinnipiac is 1-2 all-time all-time against Brown, with its only win coming at the Quinnipiac Field Hockey Turf Complex, 4-2, on Oct. 5, 2010. The last time the two teams met, Brown pulled away as the victors, 3-2, with the Bobcats' goals coming from Kim Cunniff and Jess Rusin.
Respect The Streak
Jennalise Taylor (Yardley, Pa.) ran her team-best goal-scoring streak to four games with a goal against Maine on Friday, before seeing the streak end against American on Sunday. Taylor currently leads the Bobcats with six goals, while she is tied for the team lead with 14 points.
J-E-S-S JESS JESS JESS
Junior Jess Rusin (Garward, N.J.) is making a run at the record books. With her 19th career goal against American, she needs to rattle the cage once more to become the 10th player in program history to reach the 20 career goal mark.
Allen is All-In
Ashleigh Allen (Glastonbury, Conn.) scored her first career goal in Quinnipiac's 3-0 win against St. Joseph's on Friday, Sept. 14 in Philadelphia, Pa.
