AMHERST, MA - Amherst junior netminder Heidi Alexander (Edina, MN) was tabbed U.S. College Hockey Online Women's Defensive Player of the Week after recording 32 saves in a 2-1 victory over visiting NESCAC foe Trinity College on Friday, and finishing with 47 saves in a 1-1 tie against visiting NESCAC and Little Three rival Wesleyan University on Saturday.

Against Trinity, the Jeffs came out of the locker room determined to avenge an early season loss to the Bantams. However, Trinity drew first blood late in the first period when a wrister from point blank range got past Alexander. Amherst countered with a pair of goals in the second period to record the victory and Alexander was stellar in net, stopping numerous breakaway attempts en route to a 32-save performance.

Alexander was equally impressive against Wesleyan snaring a breakaway with less than two minutes remaining and finishing with 47 saves as the Jeffs moved into fifth place in the NESCAC.

Amherst returns to action Saturday at 7:30 p.m. for an exhibition game against visiting Boston University.
