Shannon Fay, Fairfield, Jr., F, 5-9, Sayville, N.Y./St. John The Baptist

Defensive Player of the Week
Kathleen Early, Fairfield, So., GK, 5-8, Rockville Centre, N.Y./Kellenberg Memorial
Early collected her first collegiate shutout in the Stags' double overtime draw with Wagner on Friday night. She made four total saves in the 110 minutes in goal, with three stops coming after intermission. Perhaps the biggest save of the day came in the 67th minute as she corralled a rising line drive of a shot above her head.
Rookie of the Week
Veronica Saez, Fairfield, R-Fr., GK, 5-10, Bainbridge Island, Wash./Bainbridge
Saez earned her second collegiate win with a seven-save effort at Holy Cross. She played all 100:45 and didn't give up a goal over the last 70 minutes of play. Saez made four first-half saves in the victory and stopped the one shot she faced in overtime.
