By Steve Levine September 28, 2009

It was the first time all season UMass coach Angela Napoli stuck with one goalie for all 90 minutes. Cota’s recent efforts have been recognized by both UMass and the Atlantic-10 conference, as she was awarded the UMass Player of the Week as well as A-10 Co-Rookie of the Week.
