Keefe and Lis Earn Patriot League Weekly Awards
BETHLEHEM, Pa. – Following Thursday’s 2-1 road win over Siena and Sunday’s 1-0 victory over St. John’s, Lehigh women’s soccer tallied two Patriot League weekly awards, announced on Monday afternoon by the league office. Graduate student Erin Keefe was named Defensive Player of the Week while first-year Sophia Lis garnered her first Patriot League weekly award by being named Rookie of the Week.
Both Keefe and Lis played key roles in Lehigh’s victories last week. In the 62nd minute against Siena, Lis scored her first goal of the season to give the Mountain Hawks an early 1-0 lead. Siena tied the game at one but sophomore Corinne Lyght, who received Patriot League honorable mention this week, scored the game-winning goal in the 84th minute.
Against St. John’s, Keefe was a part of a back line that only allowed four shots on goal throughout the entire 90 minutes. The graduate student not only made big plays on the defensive end, but in the 90th minute, Keefe scored her first collegiate goal to secure the 1-0 Lehigh’s first shut-out victory of the season.
The Mountain Hawks will return to action on Friday, Sept. 17 where they will open up league play at Army West Point at 6 pm
