Junior Beth Lloyd Named adidas/Northeast Conference Player of the Week
For the second time this season, junior Beth Lloyd has been
named the adidas/Northeast Conference Player of the Week. It was
announced on Monday by the NEC office. Lloyd and the Blue Devils
clinched the #1 seed in this week's NEC Championship and will host
#4 seed Long Island on Friday at 11 a.m. Lloyd finished the
regular season with a team-high 11 goals on the season, including
10 in her last 10 games and nine against league opponents.
Lloyd continued her torrid scoring pace in the NEC, posting four goals and a pair of assists in a 2-0 week for the Blue Devils as they clinched the top seed in this week's NEC Tournament as well as the regular season crown.
Lloyd, who finished the regular season with a three-way league-high tie of 11 goals - all coming in the last 12 games -, scored two and added an assist in the win over Saint Francis (PA) at home on Friday. Those 11 goals ties for the third-highest single season total in school history. She scored the first goal of the game for CCSU then later assisted on a goal and scored the final goal of the game.
On Sunday, she matched her performance from Friday with an identical five points. She scored the first and second goals of the game for CCSU in the 4-0 win over Robert Morris and assisted on the third goal. Nine of her goals on the year came against league opponents, and she had four game-winners. This is the junior's second adidas/NEC Women's Soccer Player of the Week honor.
