Jordan and Keenan Receive Little East Conference Weekly Accolades

            GORHAM, Maine -- For the second straight, the Little East Conference has selected the University of Southern Maine women's lacrosse duo of senior Aliza Jordan (Gorham, Maine) and freshman Lindsey Keenan (Naples, Maine/Lake Region) for weekly accolades.  Jordan was named the Offensive Player of the Week and Keenan was picked as the Rookie of the Week.

            The pair were instrumental in the Huskies' 2-0 week that saw the offense produce 40 goals.  Jordan had 13 goals and four assists to go along with 22 draw controls, 15 ground balls and seven caused turnovers in the two games.  Keenan produced eight goals, had four assists and scooped up five ground balls.

            Jordan had a big game in USM's 24-18 non-conference win at New England College matching her career highs for goals in game (8) and points (9), and setting school single-game records for draw controls (14) and ground balls (12).  She also had six caused turnovers in the game.

            Against conference foe Keene State College, Jordan had five goals and three assists to lead the way in a 16-13 win.  She also had eight draw controls and picked up three ground balls.

            Keenan had a very productive week collecting four goals and three assists against New England College to match her season high for points in a game.  The rookie attack followed up with four goals and one assist in the win against Keene State.

            Jordan and Keenan each had three goals during the Huskies' decisive 7-1 second-half surge against Keene State.  The win over the Owls was the Huskies first since May 2013 and ended an eight-game losing streak against the Owls.

            Ten games into the 2019 season, Jordan leads the Huskies in scoring with 57 points on 38 goals and 18 assists.  She also leads the team with 35 ground balls and 56 draw controls.  Keenan is second on the scoresheet with 36 points on 19 goals and 17 assists.

            Southern Maine, 6-4 on the season and undefeated in LEC play at 3-0, travels to the New Hampton (N.H.) School on Wednesday night (7 p.m.) to play conference foe Plymouth State University.
