( FOR THE WEEK OF APRIL 1-7 )
PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Kerri Anselmo, Regis (Mass.) (Jr., A - Natick, Mass.)
Anselmo had 10 goals and nine assists for 19 points in a 3-0 GNAC week, helping Regis extend its winning streak to nine, the team's longest in five years. Last Monday at Emmanuel, she played a role in almost 80 percent of the team's offense with six goals and five assists for 11 total points, tying her career high in both goals and assists and setting a new personal best for points. All five of her assists came in the first half to help Regis establish its lead. Her fifth goal of the match with 17:15 remaining in the second half was also the 200th point of her career, the fourth player to accomplish that milestone at Regis. On Wednesday at Anna Maria, she hd three goals for her fourth hat trick of the season. On Saturday, she scored one goal and dished out three assists in Regis' overtime win at SJC. She assisted on the Pride's game-tying goal with 13:40 left in regulation as well as on the team's 10th goal of the match just over six minutes later. Anselmo now has 22 assists, just two away from the Pride's single season assist record and currently fifth in the GNAC.

McPherson helped her team win three more matches over the past week, posting a 6.58 goals against average and .524 save percentage.

Eight of those saves came in the second half as she prevented the Saints from putting together a significant comeback. McPherson allowed just two goals at Anna Maria Wednesday, and then she made seven saves, including a couple of key saves late in the second half, as Regis defeated Saint Joseph's in overtime, 11-10.
