M-Lax: Gillotti is LEC's Rookie Pick

gillottiB_300_4017.jpgNORTH DARTMOUTH, Mass. - Eastern Connecticut State University freshman goalie Brendan Gillotti (Danbury) has been selected Rookie-of-the-Week in the Little East Conference for the week ending April 28.

Making his first start of the season since the opening game, Gillotti made 19 saves in a 12-9 Little East Conference victory at Western Connecticut State University this past Tuesday. Seven of the saves came on Western's 13 first-quarter shots when the Colonials took a 4-2 lead after 15 minutes. Gillotti allowed only three goals in the second half .

The 19 saves are the most by an Eastern goalie this year. Of the 26 goals allowed by Gillotti this year, 14 came in the opener against nationally-ranked Stevens Tech, when he faced a season-high 44 shots.

This year for the 8-7 Warriors, Gillotti has appeared in five matches with two starts, a 10.78 goals-against average and .600 save percentage.

Gillotti becomes the program's second weekly honoree this year, following junior attack Mike Jordan  (Cheshire), who was named Offensive Player-of-the-Week April 1. Prior to today, the program's last Rookie-of-the-Week was freshman goalie Donald Berube in May of  2010.

As the No. 2 seed in the Little East Conference playoffs, Eastern hosts a semifinal-round match Friday at 7 p.m. at the Mansfield Outdoor Complex.
