Molly Malloy Grabs NESCAC Player of the Week Award
Malloy had five goals and an assist during the pair of wins this week. After scoring three times in a 9-0 win at WNEC on Thursday, Malloy had a hand in all three of Amherst’s goals during a 3-1 win over Colby. Malloy assisted on the game’s opening score, before scoring twice later on in the contest. The 11 points were the first of the season for Malloy, who now ranks second among her teammates in scoring.
Malloy has missed four games this season due to tendonitis in her knees, and has seen limited action in a majority of her five games played in 2008. This week, Malloy seemed to rebound from the injuries with a throwback performance to what made her a NFHCA All-New England West Region Second Team selection just a year ago.
Malloy and the Lord Jeffs return to action on Thursday evening as they welcome Babson College to campus for a 6 p.m. non-conference game.
