Isaacson becomes the first Trine women’s hockey student-athlete to be named NCHA Offensive Player of the Week this season (and in program history) after a clutch performance in the series against Chatham University. Isaacson recorded a team-high two points in Trine’s pair of victories, but they were key. On Friday, she recorded her first game-winning goal of the season in the 2-1 victory over the Cougars. On Saturday, she added an assist on the Thunder’s lone goal securing the team’s first tie of the season at 1-1.
Scarborough joins her teammate and earns the NCHA Defensive Player of the Week award. Scarborough received both starts this weekend for Trine in goal, becoming a crucial part of the team’s 1-0-1 record on the weekend by posting a .961 save percentage and a 0.96 goals-against average. On Friday, Scarborough finished the game with 25 saves, enough to secure the 2-1 victory over visiting Chatham University. In the second game of the weekend, she surrendered the lone Cougar goal in the first period before shutting out the oppositions over the final 60 minutes of the night to secure the Thunder’s first tie of the season at 1-1. She finished the weekend with 49 total saves.
