EDISON, N.J. - In the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference's weekly awards announcement, sophomore forward Amanda Epstein (Jericho, N.Y.) was named the conference's Offensive Player of the Week. She earned the honor, the eighth of her career, in recognition of her play this past weekend versus Loyola and Rider.

In a weekend where scoring was at a premium in Poughkeepsie, the sophomore forward netted both of the Red Foxes' game-winning goals. In back-to-back contests, on Friday versus Loyola and Sunday versus Rider, Epstein scored Marist's only goals in a pair of 1-0 decisions. On Friday, she calmly and confidently converted a penalty kick in the 59th minute and on Sunday in the 47th minute, she danced and juked around a pair of Rider defenders before unleashing a shot from just inside the 18-yard box into the lower left corner of the goal. With these two game-winning goals, Epstein has now registered the winning tally in five of Marist's last six wins.

This is Marist's sixth MAAC weekly award of 2012 as Chelsea Botta (East Longmeadow, Mass.), Caitlin Landsman (Burke, Va.), Andrea Wicks (East Northport, N.Y.), Megan McEnroe (St. James, N.Y.) and Epstein have earned accolades earlier in the season.

The Red Foxes will begin postseason play on Friday night, Oct. 2 at 7 p.m. as the top seed in the MAAC Tournament versus Iona.
