Nick Thayer is Little East Goalkeeper of the Week

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA--Junior goalkeeper Nick Thayer (Chelmsford, MA/Chelmsford HS) has been honored by the Little East Conference.

Thayer has been named LEC Goalkeeper of the Week. It's the second time this season he has been so honored.

Thayer averaged 12 saves per game in two games last week as UMass Dartmouth earned a split. He made nine saves in Tuesday night's loss at 20th-ranked Connecticut College, and made 15 stops as UMass Dartmouth won at Southern Maine Saturday to remain unbeaten in conference play.

"Nick Thayer's award is a well-deserved award," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Kevin Mahoney. "He is playing at a consistently high level in practice and in games. He leads by example every day. Nick works hard in the weight room and in the classroom He is a true definition of a student-athlete. "      

The Corsairs are 7-1 this season and will return to action Wednesday evening when they host Massachusetts Maritime.
