Charlotte Goins Selected to womensfieldhockey.com Weekly Honor Roll

Senior's 11 Saves Led Bulldogs to Win Over Dartmouth

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Senior goalkeeper Charlotte Goins (New Bern, N.C.), who helped Yale to a key Ivy League win and a non-league shutout last weekend, has been selected to the womensfieldhockey.com national weekly honor roll.

Goins made 11 saves in Saturday's 5-2 win over Dartmouth that moved the Bulldogs into sole possession of second place in the league. That was the most saves in a game by a Yale player since junior Katie Bolling stopped 15 vs. North Carolina Oct. 12, 2008. Goins and Bolling then combined for a 6-0 shutout of Fairfield, Yale's third combined shutout of the year, on Sunday.

Goins has a 1.99 goals-against average and a .708 save percentage in her last five games. At one point during that span she went 107:58 without allowing a goal.

This is the second womensfieldhockey.com national honor roll selection for Yale this year; senior forward Ashley McCauley (Rye, N.Y.) was selected Sept. 24. McCauley was also honored this past week as the Ivy League Player of the Week.

Yale, which is among the teams receiving votes in the national poll, plays at Quinnipiac Thursday at 3 p.m. and at Penn Sunday at 1 p.m.
