University of Albany's Shayla Bergeron Named America East Women's Soccer Player of the Week - UAlbany Sports 2010

Cambridge, Mass. - Sophomore forward Shayla Bergeron has been named the America East Conference Women's Soccer Player of the Week, as announced by the league office on Tuesday, Sept. 7. A transfer from Duquesne University, Bergeron is being honored by the conference for the first time this season after leading the Great Danes to a perfect 3-0 record this past week.

Bergeron registered three goals, including two game winners, in two victories over Atlantic 10 Conference opponents. In the team's 3-2 victory over Temple on Friday, Bergeron became the first Great Dane to score twice in a single match since Rebecca Lee accomplished the feat on Oct. 26, 2008. The sophomore, who has scored over half of the team's goals this fall, put UAlbany on the board midway through the first half before netting the eventual game winner in the 52nd minute. Bergeron ended the week by scoring the lone goal midway through the first half in yesterday's 1-0 win over Massachusetts.

Through two weeks of play, Bergeron leads all America East Conference players in total goals (4) and points (8). She is also the only player in the conference to net two game-winning goals this season.

UAlbany (3-2) is off to its best five-game start and is riding its first three-game winning streak since upgrading to Division I status in 1999. The squad will look to conclude its four-game homestand with an unblemished record when it hosts Syracuse on Friday, Sept. 10 at 4 p.m.
