Allerton Named A-Sun Defensive Player of the Week

In her first career start as a Dolphin, freshman goal keeper Hannah Allerton posted a clean sheet in a 1-0 victory over the College of Charleston and garnered Atlantic Sun Defensive Player of the Week honors for her performance. 

Allerton helped shut down the Cougar offense recording a game high six saves in 90 minutes of play.  In what looked like a promising opportunity for Charleston to score and tie the game up late in the second half, Allerton recovered from being caught out of position and made two key saves to thwart the attack. 

The Dolphins and Allerton return to action with their Atlantic Sun opener when they travel to take on newcomers Northern Kentucky on September 21.
