MU Lax report from Greg Viscomi/first place showdown with Mount Friday

Brittany McLaughlin was named NEC ROOKIE of the Week.
She picked up 11 points on the week, her first points of the season/career all coming off the bench for the Hawks. Against Lafayette, the freshman scored a hat trick and added an assist. In the St. Francis game she tallied two goals and had three assists. She excelled on defense as well in that game, with two ground balls and a pair of caused turnovers. She rounded out the week with two assists while playing in the second half against Robert Morris.


Team Notes:


Hawk head coach Kelly McCardell will look for her 25th career win in MU’s next game. Monmouth heads down to Mount St. Mary’s for a matchup that could decide who wins the conference. The two undefeated teams meet on Friday at 3:30.


The Hawks are now 11-3 on the season and a perfect 5-0 in Northeast Conference play. Monmouth went 3-0 on the week to complete their four-game home stand with a 4-0 record. The Hawks outscored their three opponents by a combined total of 59-14, including scoring back-to-back 20+ goal games against Lafayette and St. Francis, marking just the third time in school history a Monmouth team has done so. MU celebrated senior day against Robert Morris, with Katie Degen, Carolyn Raveia, Kaitlyn Robinson, Becca Ozl, Amy Hanson and Nicole Marcou being honored before the game. Degen led the hawks in scoring during the week with nine goals and 10 assists for 19 points, while corralling three ground balls, five draws and causing six turnovers. Freshman standout Megan Brennan continues her impressive season, scoring eight points on six goals and two helpers this week. Brennan also had four ground balls, four draws and a caused turnover on the week. Megan Nutter continued her perfect free position percentage, going 1-for-1 on the week and upping her season total to 14-for-14. Sophomore Monica Johnson started all three games for Monmouth in net, while Ozl came in relief in all of the contests. The two combined for 11 saves and a 4.67 goals against average on the week. Hawk head coach Kelly McCardell will look for her 25th career win in MU’s next game. Monmouth heads down to Mount St. Mary’s for a matchup that could decide who wins the conference. The two undefeated teams meet on Friday at 3:30.
