Patterson, Glorud Headline Eight From Women's Soccer to Earn NE10 All-Conference Honors


MANSFIELD, Mass. – Junior Allyson Patterson (Seekonk, Mass.) and sophomore Dorthea Glorud (Brumunddal, Norway) of the Southern New Hampshire University women's soccer team were named to the Northeast-10 All-Conference First Team on Friday afternoon, headlining eight Penmen that received end-of-the-season accolades from the league office.

Patterson, the Oct. 21 NE10 Player of the Week, has started all 16 contests and racked up 25 points on 10 goals and five assists. The team-leader in goals and points, Patterson has registered at least one point in 13 matches this season, including nine straight from Sept. 18-Oct. 19. Patterson, who received an All-Rookie nod in 2017, is tied for third in the league in both goal and points, and tied for seventh in assists. 

Glorud finished the regular season just behind Patterson with nine goals and six assists for 24 points, as she started 15 of the 16 games she played in. Glorud matched Patterson's two game-winning goals, including one in the 74th minute of a 3-2 victory over the 11th-ranked College of Saint Rose on Oct. 26. Glorud, who was both a Third Team and All-Rookie Team selection last season, is tied for fourth in the conference in assists, tied for fifth in goals and sits alone in fifth in points. She earrned NE10 Player of the Week honors back on Sept. 9.

Senior Shae Roys (No. Billerica, Mass.) and sophomore Sydney Carney (Northborough, Mass.) earned spots on the Second Team. Roys, a second-year captain for the Penmen, has started all 16 contests, as a staple in the midfield. Roys has two goals and two assists for six points, and lifted SNHU to a 2-1 overtime victory against Southern Connecticut State University in the 100th minute back on Sept. 28. Roys was a Third Team choice last season, a Second Teamer in 2017, and both a Third Team and All-Rookie Team selection in 2016.

Carney has started 15 of the 16 matches she has played in and is third on the team with 21 points on five goals and 11 assists. Carney, who ranks second in the NE10 in assists and seventh in points, has dished the most helpers in a season for the Penmen since current assistant coach Ariel Teixeira racked up 12 assists during the 2011 campaign. Carney was named to both the Second Team and All-Rookie Team a year ago.

Two important pieces of the Penmen back line in junior Morgan Mscisz (Danvers, Mass.) and freshman Alyssa McCarthy (Stoneham, Mass.) received Third Team recognition. Mscisz has played in 12 contests and started the last eight matches, as she has helped anchor the defensive unit. McCarthy has started all 14 games she has played in, also contributing on the offensive end with a pair of assists. 

Freshmen Jordan Butters (Beverly, Mass.) and Victoria Roulston (E. Falmouth, Mass.) joined McCarthy on the All-Rookie Team. Butters ranks fourth on the team with nine points on four goals and an assist, after playing in all 16 matches, including one start. She owns a game-winning goal to her credit, but possibly scored her biggest of the year with 52 seconds remaining in regulation to forge a 1-1 tie with Saint Anselm College on Oct. 30. Roulston, who has started seven of the 15 contests she has played in, has added depth to the defensive unit and also scored a goal for two points. She was the Oct. 14 NE10 Rookie of the Week.

The fifth-seeded Penmen return to action Sunday, Nov. 10 (1 p.m.) when they take on fourth-seeded Bentley University in an NE10 Championship quarterfinal tilt.
