LOUDONVILLE, N.Y. - A day after being named the top defensive player for the week in her conference, Siena Women's Soccer sophomore keeper Taylor Booth was recognized as the region's top defensive player as well. Booth has been named the ECAC Defensive Player of the Week.
Named the MAAC Defensive Player of the Week Monday, the Epping, N.H. native posted a 2-1 record in goal last week and made 15 saves. She added a stellar 0.33 goals against average and .938 save percentage while garnering clean sheets in the Saints' wins over Vermont and Temple.
Booth was a key factor during the Saints' recent four-game winning streak in which she totaled three shutouts and saved 22 of the 23 shots she faced.
Booth and the Saints open conference action Friday night at Niagara in a 7 p.m. kickoff.
