Montrond Named As Little East Women's Soccer Offensive Player Of The Week

UMass Dartmouth junior midfielder Nerida Montrond was named as the Little East Conference Women’s Soccer Offensive Player of the Week on Monday afternoon for her efforts in a pair of league outings last week.

A resident of Lynn, Mass. and a graduate of Brockton High School, Montrond netted a pair of goals and two assists for six points on the week for the Corsairs, as she set up both markers in a 2-2 double overtime home draw with Keene State last Wednesday evening at Cressy Field before tallying twice in a 2-2 tie at UMass Boston last Saturday.  Nerida leads UMass Dartmouth in scoring with three goals and four assists for 10 points to date, as her other tally came in a 1-1 draw at Bridgewater State back on September 6th.

Montrond becomes the third Corsair to earn a league accolade this fall, as senior Maddie McGee-Cochran (Lunenburg, Mass./Lunenburg) and sophomore Jaimee O’Brien (West Springfield, Mass./West Springfield) were tabbed as the respective Little East Defensive Player and Goalkeeper of the Week back on September 3rd.

UMass Dartmouth, which stands at 3-5-3 overall and 1-1-2 in conference play under first year Head Coach Elise Cloutier, returns to action on Tuesday, October 2nd when the Corsairs head to Leicester, Mass. to square off with Becker in a non-league clash that begins at 6:00 pm EDT.
