Morgan is the NCHA Offensive Player of the Week after playing a key role in the unbeaten series Lake Forest College enjoyed against nationally-ranked Adrian College. Morgan scored LFC’s first goal in both games, as the Foresters picked up three points (1-0-1) over the weekend and earned themselves some votes in the national polls. After accounting for the game-winning goal in Friday’s 2-0 triumph, she knotted the game at one with a short-handed goal in a 2-2 tie Saturday.
Rogers is the NCHA Defensive Player of the Week for the second time this season and the fourth time in her career after a stellar showing in a pair of games against No. 5/4 Adrian College over the weekend, helping LFC earn three points (1-0-1). She blanked the Bulldogs on 21 saves in Friday’s 2-0 triumph before stopping 26 of 28 shots on goal in a 2-2 tie Saturday. She climbed to 12th in the nation in save percentage (.945) and 16th in goals against average (1.43) and continues to lead the league in both categories.
