From Press Release
Hofstra University freshman attacker Emily Considine (Rockville Centre, NY) was named the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Rookie of the Week today, the conference office announced this afternoon.
Considine starred in her collegiate debut as she led Hofstra with four goals on five shots, while also adding in two ground balls. Considine got the start in her first game and scored all four of her goals after intermission to help Hofstra rally from a 7-4 halftime deficit.
Led by Considine and sophomore attack Brittain Altomare (one goal, four assists), Hofstra rallied from an early 4-0 deficit to defeat New Hampshire, 13-12, in its season opener on Saturday. The game marked the first in the head coaching career of Pride leader Shannon Smith.
Hofstra returns to action on Wednesday when it hosts Fairfield at 2 p.m.
