GOALKEEPER OF THE WEEK
Rachel Matloff, Anna Maria (So., GK - Grafton, Mass.)

Kaylee Francis, Regis (Mass.) (So., F - Millis, Mass.) - Francis began to emerge as the offensive threat she became during her freshman season, completing a 1-1 week with one goal and four assists. At Framingham State Wednesday, she played a role in the first four Regis goals, scoring the second goal of the match on a chip shot inside the right post and assisting on the other three goals. She threatened to score several times against the Rams, as all four shots she took were on goal. Saturday, she seemingly was going to take a shot herself, but then found an open player down the right side and fed the ball there, earning another assist. After only three matches, she is already just one assist away from Regis' top-10 single-season assist list.
Rylee Snow, St. Joseph (Conn.) (So., M/F - West Greenwich, R.I.) - Scored both goals in a 2-1 win vs. Eastern Nazarene, making it 3 goals on the season. USJ trailed 1-0 before Snow got the game-tying goal in the first half, and the game-winner in the 59th minute of the second half. Her 3 goals on the season is tied for 2nd in the GNAC, and she has led the Blue Jays to a 4-0 start (2-0 on the week) for the first time since 2010.
