DANBURY, Conn.- Western Connecticut State University junior forward Catherine Nathans (New Fairfield, Conn.) was recently named to the D3Kicks.com National Team of the Week for her performance on the soccer pitch for the week ending Sept. 30.
On Sept 29, Nathans had a hand in all three Colonial goals, including the game-winner, as the Western Connecticut defeated Little East Conference opponent Rhode Island College, 3-0. She netted the decisive goal in the first half before adding an insurance marker on a penalty kick early in the second stanza. Nathans capped off her season-high five-point effort with an assist.
Nathans, the 2006 Little East Conference Offensive Player of the Year, sits atop the conference standings in assists (6) and sharing the lead in game-winning goals (2). She also ranks among the Little East Conference leaders in points (3rd, 16) and goals (4th, 5).
Western Connecticut returns to action at 7 p.m. on Oct. 3, when the 20th-ranked Colonials host Westfield State in a non-conference match.
