EDISON, NJ - Iona College women's soccer senior goalkeeper Trista Rivera was named MAAC Defensive Player of the Week, as announced by the conference today.
Rivera made seven saves to secure her first shutout of the season and help the Gaels open MAAC play with a 1-0 win over Canisius. Rivera had three saves in the first half, and stopped four more shots in the second. Rivera kept Canisius off the board despite the Golden Griffs holding an advantage in shots and corner kicks.
The Maroon & Gold continues MAAC action Wednesday (Sep. 25) on the road when they face Manhattan at Gaelic Park.
