Three New England stars named to UWS Team of the Week

The New England Mutiny open the home portion of their 2018 schedule in the East Conference of United Women's Soccer (UWS) this Saturday night, hosting the Rochester Lady Lancers at East Longmeadow High School (7:00 PM kickoff). New England was victorious in both meetings between the clubs last season. The Mutiny will be looking to maintain their winning start to this season, as last Friday night, they came back from a 2-1 deficit to earn a 3-2 victory over the Connecticut Fusion on the road.

Meghan SchnurIn what was a high-paced match, New England scored first in the seventh minute but surrendered the lead early in the second half. Goalkeeper Lysianne Proulx kept the Mutiny in the game, making three marquee stops (11 saves overall). The visitors tied the game at 2-2 in the 65th minute and defender Elena Santos notched the game-winning goal ten minutes later. Proulx, Santos and Mutiny legend Meghan Schnur (pictured on the right) - who organized the midfield in her triumphant return to the club - were named to the UWS Team of the Week for their efforts.

Proulz was also named the UWS Defensive Player of the Week.

"Congratulations to all the players that made the UWS Team of the Week," said New England Mutiny owner Joe Ferrara, Jr. "There were many deserving candidates from the Mutiny for league honors this week."

New England also opened their 2017 home schedule at East Longmeadow H.S. with a match against Rochester, who were competing in their inaugural season in the UWS East. The Mutiny offense clicked from the outset, scoring five first-half goals en route to a 5-1 victory over the first-year side. The forward tandem of captain Kate Howarth (two goals) and Abby Sotomayor (goal, two assists) were in mid-season form for the hosts. Lady Lancers keeper Caitie Broderick made five saves in the defeat.

The two teams met again on Sunday, June 11th with Rochester proving to be a much tougher opponent. Kara Shue started the scoring for the hosts in the opening minute off an assist from Taylor Wingerden. But New England steadily gained an influence in the match, tying the score at 1-1 in the 30th minute on an unassisted goal from Howarth. The Mutiny broke the hosts' hearts in the 63rd minute when midfielder Brenna Brown put the visitors ahead on an assist from Tanya Altrui for the eventual 2-1 victory.

"East Longmeadow has always done a great job surrounding its jamboree around a Mutiny game," said Ferrara, Jr. "We look forward to our home opener vs. Rochester."
