Kevin Pelsinski Honored by Little East Conference

April 6, 2009

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-Freshman goalkeeper Kevin Pelsinski (Merrimack, NH/Merrimack HS) has been honored by the Little East Conference.

Pelsinski has been named Little East Conference Rookie of the Week.

Pelsinski allowed nine goals in two games last week, posting a 4.50 goals-against average and a .640 save percentage and won the first two starts of his collegiate career. He allowed seven goals Wednesday against 2008 NCAA qualifier Mount Ida, then allowed two goals in an 8-2 Little East Conference win against UMass Boston Saturday.

"Kevin is doing a great job and playing hard every day," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Kevin Mahoney. "He is doing an excellent job in the cage and gives us flexibility. When he didn't play the first couple of games, he was the biggest supporter of (freshman goalkeeper) Cameron Crown (Walpole, MA/Walpole HS). Both goalies keep working hard and are very supportive of each other. We are excited about Kevin playing so well."

The Corsairs are 4-5 overall and 1-1 in the LEC. They will return to action when they visit Southern Maine Saturday afternoon.
