BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Megan Traub of Berkeley Heights earned the Empire 8 Defensive Player of the Week for her performance this past weekend in the Stevens Institute of Technology's Field Hockey opening weekend.
Traub helped the Ducks to a 1-1 weekend against two nationally ranked opponents in No. 8 Messiah College and No. 12 The College of New Jersey.
Traub had an assist on the only goal in a 2-1 overtime loss to Messiah in their season opener. She also played a major roll in holding the powerful offense of the Falcons to just two goals in 73-plus minutes of action.
The following day, Traub assisted another goal that tied the score one apiece against The College of New Jersey. This was the first of three game tying goals. She led the Stevens defense, allowing just 2.5 goals per game over the weekend against two of the better offenses in the nation.
The Ducks will host Kean University, Saturday, Sept. 7 at 5 p.m.
