EDISON, N.J. – For the second consecutive week, Monmouth University sophomore goalkeeper Amanda Knaub was named the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference women’s defensive player of the week, it was announced Monday.

Knaub registered two shutouts and surrendered one goal in the Hawks’ 2-0-1 week.

Monmouth defeated Seton Hall University, 1-0, and Drexel University, 2-1, before playing Hofstra University to a scoreless draw on the road. Knaub made five saves in the win over Seton Hall and equaled her then-career high with seven stops against the Dragons. She followed that effort up with an eight-save performance to set a career standard as she recorded her fourth shutout of the year and the 13th of her career as Monmouth closed non-league play on a four-game unbeaten streak.

The Hawks (3-2-2) begin the MAAC portion of their schedule when it travels to Niagara, N.Y. to play Niagara University Saturday at 11 a.m. The match will be broadcast live on
