HAMDEN, Conn. - Quinnipiac University freshman women's soccer player Shannon Larkin (Burlington, Conn.) was named Northeast Conference Co-Rookie of the Week after scoring her first collegiate goal in Quinnipiac's 1-0 victory against intrastate rival Hartford this past weekend. The NEC honor is the forward's first of her career.
Just 10 minutes into the game, Larkin was able to convert on a cross from fellow classmate Amanda Barroca (Bellmore, N.Y.), who sent the ball through the Hawks' defense finding Larkin to give the Bobcats the 1-0 lead in the first half. Larkin's goal keeps Quinnipiac undefeated at 4-0-1 on the season.
Quinnipiac hosts non-conference Harvard midweek on Wednesday, Sept. 12 at 4 p.m. at QU Soccer Field in Hamden, Conn. The Bobcats then hit the road Sunday, Sept. 16 to take on the Siena Saints at 1 p.m. at Siena Field in Loudonville, N.Y.
