“They’re on top of our conference, so we wanted to prove ourselves against them,” she said. “I think we did just that and grinded out a good win.”
Head Coach Tracey Leone praised Dowd’s strong play late in the game.
“She did great, she’s a pressure player,” Leone told GoNU. “You know, the bigger the pressure, the bigger the player she becomes. She always wants to step up in those big moments and really has all the time for us, and certainly did today, not just on one occasion but on two.”
Accolades rolled in for the Huskies, as Dowd was named CAA Co-Player of the Week as well as a member of the TopDrawerSoccer.com Team of the Week. Gorman took home the CAA Rookie of the Week award.
This weekend, the Huskies head down south again to take on two more CAA opponents– James Madison University and Towson University, in Virginia and Maryland, respectively. The Huskies then return to face off against their final three regular-season opponents at Parsons Field starting Oct. 16.
