In what is turning out to be a great start to the 2013 season, Rachel Daly has been named BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Week for the second week in a row. It is also the third week in a row that a St. John's player has been named BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Week, after Amy Marron earned the honor in Week 1.
Daly was also named to TopDrawSoccer.com's National Team of the Week after a five-goal weekend in which the Red Storm went 2-0.
St. John's 4, Central Connecticut 0
There's no stopping the Red Storm.
The ladies are off to a perfect 5-0-0 start after beating traveling to Central Connecticut on Saturday (Sept. 7) and handing the Blue Devils a 4-0 defeat, powered by two goals from Daly. She scored both her goals in the first half, and the Red Storm cruised behind another quality effort from goalkeeper Diana Poulin, who made a season-high six saves to earn the shutout.
St. John's 4, Brown 0
Let's make it six wins!
With their second-straight 4-0, the Red Storm improved to 6-0-0 in 2013. Daly one-upped her two-goal effort against Central Connecticut with a hat trick against Brown, her second three-goal game of the season.
Her first goal came just 36 seconds into the game. Yes, you read that correctly. 36 SECONDS! She scored on a penalty kick, marking the fifth time in six games that the Red Storm have scored within the first 17 minutes of the game.
Poulin played 83 minutes in net and made two saves on just three shots.
The Red Storm travel to Indiana to play in the Hoosier Classic, hosted by Indiana University, on Friday, Sept. 13.
