Kevin Pelsinki Earns Little East Conference Honors

April 13, 2009

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-Once again, freshman goalkeeper Kevin Pelsinski (Merrimack, NH/Merrimack HS) has been honored by the Little East Conference.

For the second week in a row, Pelsinski has been named Little East Conference Rookie of the Week.

Pelsinski made 17 saves in a 9-7 win at Southern Maine that was the Corsairs' lone game last week. For the season, he is 3-0-0 with a 6.11 goals-against average and a .632 save percentage.

"Kevin has been playing well, and is very even-keeled during games," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Kevin Mahoney. "Our players have confidence in his being able to pick up for their mistakes. The competition amongst the keepers, (freshman) Cameron Crown (Walpole, MA/Walpole HS) and Kevin, has brought the best out of both of them and we have been very happy with both of their performances thus far in the season."

The Corsairs are 5-5 overall and 2-1 in the LEC. They will return to action when they host Eastern Connecticut State on Tuesday.
