PAWTUCKET, R.I. – After scoring a pair of goals, including the game-winner in the 3-2 victory over Western Connecticut State University, freshman forward Grace McGettrick (Marshfield, Mass.) has been named the Little East Conference Rookie of the Week.
McGettrick becomes the second Beacon to earn a conference weekly honor in 2018, as the Beacons continue to put together one of their best starts. On Saturday, McGettrick proved to be the hero as women's soccer defeated Western Connecticut State University for the first time since the 2013 season. The Marshfield native scored her first goal less than two minutes into the second half, while her deciding tally came in the 56th minute on a beautifully placed shot to the near post.
McGettrick now leads the Beacons with three goals and an assist for seven points. The Beacons will be back in action on Wednesday when they travel to Castleton University for a 7 p.m. conference match.
