EDISON, N.J. - The Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference honored Loyola sophomore goalkeeper Brittany Henderson for the fourth time this season following her 200 minutes of shutout soccer last weekend.

Henderson was named the MAAC Defensive Player of the Week today after the Greyhounds defeated Canisius, 1-0, and tied Niagara, 0-0, over the weekend.

She earned the award for the second-consecutive week after helping Loyola shutout Rider, 1-0, the previous weekend.

The Commack, N.Y., native has not allowed a goal in MAAC play this season. Henderson has held opponents scoreless for the last 455 minutes, 12 seconds, after last allowing a goal on September 30 against Bucknell.

As a team, the Greyhounds have not allowed a goal in 500 minutes, 12 seconds.

In the tie against Niagara, Henderson made six saves, including one a penalty shot late in the second half. She made one save in the victory over Canisius.

Henderson is second in the MAAC with an overall 0.99 goals against average this season, and she leads the league in the category in MAAC contests with a 0.00 mark.

She was the co-Defensive Player of the Week on September 24 and was the solo recipient on September 10.
