COLCHESTER, Vt. - Saint Michael's College women's soccer sophomore back Maggie Taylor (Lake Forest Park, Wash./Shorecrest) earned the Northeast-10 Conference Defensive Player of the Week for the week ending on Sunday, Oct. 28.

Taylor scored a game-winning goal while aiding a defense that posted two shutouts, allowed 2.5 shots on goal per game and went 1-0-1 last week. 

In a 2-0 win on Thursday over the University of Maine at Fort Kent, which was ranked second nationally by the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA), Taylor scored the opening goal just 4:55 into the contest while helping limit the Bengals to just two shots on goal.

In a scoreless draw with regionally-ranked Assumption College on Saturday, Taylor and the Purple Knight defense yielded just three shots on goal, and only one in the two overtime sessions. 

The Greyhounds were sixth in the latest United Soccer Coaches East Region poll. Taylor has started nine times while appearing in all 14 games, scoring once and adding an assist.
