WEEKLY NOTES:

- First-year Blake Crawley earned NESCAC Player of the Week honors thanks to a big week last week. Crawley assisted the game-winning goal in the 101st minute in a double-overtime win against Wesleyan and scored the lone goal of the game, the first of her career, in a 1-0 victory over Bowdoin to lead the Bantams to a 2-0 week. Crawley is tied for fourth on the team with three points, along with classmate Samantha March who is also fourth in the NESCAC with fifth in the league with 32 shots.

- Sophomore Rhone O'Hara leads the team with five points on a pair of goals and one assist. 

- Senior tri-captain Julia Pitino had her second clean-sheet against Bowdoin, making five saves in the process. Pitino ranks sixth in the NESCAC with 35 total saves.

- First-year forward Amelia Kroschwitz scored the game-winning goal in the 101st minute to lift Trinity to a 2-1 victory over Wesleyan last week. Kroschwitz is currently tied for second on the team in goals (2) and points (4). 

- Trinity's two victories last week moved the team from seventh to fifth in the league standings. Three of their final four games of the year are against conference opponents as they look to finish in the top-four and secure a first round home game.
