The Women's Premier Soccer League (WPSL) has announced the All-East Conference Teams and individual honors for the 2013 season. Five New England Mutiny stars were selected to the All-East Teams with Niki Deiter being named the 2013 Goalkeeper Of The Year. Deiter was joined on the All-East First Team by defenders Sarah Brochu and McKenzie Hollenbaugh while defender Alie Fitzsimmons and midfielder Kacey Richards were named to the All-East Second Team. The Mutiny won the 2013 New England Division & East Conference title this season in large part to the team's defense which was led by Deiter, who allowed only five goals in 10 starts during the regular season; often times making the key save that kept her team from defeat. Deiter (8-1-5 record) missed only 10 minutes of playing time in net, notching eight shutouts overall. The Central Connecticut State University Blue Devil was the catalyst for New England, who reached the WPSL National Championship for the sixth time in the team's existence. With Deiter as the last line of defense, her compatriots rose to her level of performance. Therefore, it was not a surprise that both central defenders - Sarah Brochu & McKenzie Hollenbaugh - were named to the All-East First Team beside her. Mutiny veteran Brochu followed up her strong 2012 WPSL Elite campaign with a dominating effort this year, starting nine games while single-handedly shutting down Boston College standout Stephanie McCaffrey (one of the top scorers in the WPSL in 2013) in both matches vs. her Boston Breakers Academy team. Hollenbaugh (12 GS) will return to Boston University this fall with her head held high, as the athletic and speedy defender tracked down every any attacker that ran her way. It was an arduous task to get behind either her or left-back Alie Fitzsimmons, who was named to the All-East Second Team. Another Mutiny veteran, Fitzsimmons took her experience last year with New England & American International College (2012 NSCAA First-Team All-American) and raised her defense to another level this year, starting in 12 matches. Midfielder Kacey Richards (12 GP with 11 starts) joined Fitzsimmons on the All-East Second Team as the workhorse in the central midfield for New England. The former University of Connecticut standout fronted the defense, but also found space and time to get into the attack, leading the team this year in assists with five (tied with forward Rachel Ugolik). The versatility of Richards came in handy at the end of this year's campaign, as she played in central defense after the loss of both Brochu and Hollenbaugh from the Mutiny lineup.
