Rebecca Kiting Named adidas/NEC Co-Rookie Of The Week

HAMDEN, Conn. - Quinnipiac University freshman women's soccer player Beck Kiting (Canberra, Australia) was named adidas/NEC Co-Rookie of the Week after scoring her first collegiate goal in Quinnipiac's 4-2 victory against conference rival Central Connecticut State University on Sunday, Sept. 26. The Northeast Conference honor is the defender's first of her career. Kiting shares the award with Saint Francis' Barbara Maros de Carvalho, who had three assists in the Red Flash win at Robert Morris.

Down 2-1 in the first half, Kiting was able to convert an assist from teammate Meagan McLoughlin (Rocky Hill, Conn.) to tie the game up in the 43rd minute of play. McLoughlin was able to slide the ball through defenders to find Kiting, who blasted a shot past the Blue Devil goalkeeper. The Bobcats were able to score two more goals in the second half, defeating Central Connecticut State in their first conference match of the season.

Quinnipiac travels to New York for its next two conference games of the season. The Bobcats face Wagner on Friday, Oct. 1 at the Wagner College Stadium in Staten Island, N.Y at 3:30 p.m. They then travel to play Long Island University on Sunday, Oct. 3 at the LIU Field in Brooklyn, N.Y at 12 p.m
