UVM’s Cochran Named ECAC Women’s Soccer Division I Player of the Week

BURLINGTON, Vt. –
University of Vermont junior Amy Cochran (Keene, N.H.) has been named the ECAC Women’s Soccer Division I Player of the Week for the week ending September 26, 2005.  Cochran is the first UVM player to earn the honor this season and the first since teammate Nikkie Hessney earned the honor during the 2003 season.

Cochran scored both goals in Vermont’s 2-0 shutout victory at Binghamton in the conference opener on Sunday.  The Catamounts handed the Bearcats, the defending America East Champions, their fourth straight loss of the year and were shutout for the second consecutive time by UVM.

Cochran, an America East All-Conference Second Team selection last season, has scored four goals in the last two games for Vermont.  She leads the team in scoring, and ranks second in America East, with seven goals and a league-leading five assists for 19 points. Cochran ranks among the top five all-time at UVM in goals (5th-24), assists (T3rd-14) and points (5th-62).  Earlier this season, Cochran became the seventh Catamount to reach the 50-point plateau.

The Catamounts have won three of their last four matches and stand at 4-5-0 overall and 1-0-0 in America East.  UVM returns to the friendly confines of Centennial Field for the first time since August 31 when it hosts Albany at 3:00pm on Thursday, September 29.  For ticket information, please call the UVM Athletic Ticket Office at 1-866-4-CAT-TIX.  All University of Vermont students get in free with their valid UVM ID.
