After two more conference road victories, three Monmouth University women were recognized by the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference as players of the week, the league office announced Monday.
Senior Dana Scheriff was chosen as the MAAC offensive player of the week, classmate Amanda Knaub earned MAAC defensive player of the week honors and Alexa Correa secured the MAAC rookie of the week award. Scheriff earned her first career offensive player of the week award, Knaub collected her seventh defensive recognition and Correa was honored for the first time.
Scheriff scored twice, once in each game, as the Hawks remained unbeaten in the MAAC. Scheriff scored the first goal in Monmouth’s 4-0 win at Niagara University, which stood as the game-winning tally. Scheriff has five goals, four of which have come during conference play. Monmouth has won nine consecutive games.
Knaub added two more shutouts to her resume with six saves against Iona College and Niagara. She made two stops in the 5-0 triumph over the Gaels before making a conference-high four saves vs. the Purple Eagles. Knaub extended her scoreless streak to 462:55. She has 10 shutouts this season.
Correa continued her strong recent play with a goal and two assists as the Hawks moved to 8-0-0 in the MAAC. Correa had one assist in the win over Iona, following up with one goal and one assist in the victory at Niagara to help Monmouth finish the road portion of its schedule at 7-0-2.
Monmouth is unbeaten on the road for the second time in program history and the first time since 1995. The Hawks also secured a semifinal home game in the MAAC postseason tournament.
