ECAC West recognizes Vakos, Aveson with Weekly Honors
CENTERVILLE, Mass. — Ali Vakos and Sydney Aveson of the Plattsburgh State women’s hockey team have been selected as the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) West Player and Goalie of the Week, respectively, for the week ending Nov. 24.
Vakos earns the first ECAC West weekly honor of her career after a six-point weekend for Plattsburgh.
The Hamden, Conn. native assisted on two power-play goals in Saturday’s 5-0 win over Neumann. Vakos followed that up with a four-point afternoon against Neumann in a 7-0 victory Sunday. She scored back-to-back goals in the second period, including a power-play marker, and added two assists in the win for the Cardinals.
Aveson picked up two more shutouts over the weekend to bring her season total to six and earn her third weekly award of the season.
The Cardinals’ senior goaltender made 14 saves in Saturday’s 5-0 win before stopping 15 shots in Sunday’s 7-0 shutout. Aveson is 6-0-0 on the year with a 0.00 goals-against average.
The Cardinals (8-0-0, 5-0-0 ECAC West) close out the first semester this weekend at Middlebury for the Panther/Cardinal Classic. Top-ranked Plattsburgh meets Amherst at 4 p.m. on Saturday afternoon before wrapping up the weekend at 4 p.m. Sunday against No. 2 Middlebury.
