Patrick Agyemang, Fr., F, East Hartford
Second-time selection came off the bench to contribute to three of the team’s goals in just 47 minutes of play helping the Warriors back from an early two-goal deficit to trim 2017 Little East Conference playoff champion Western Connecticut, 4-3, Wednesday at Thomas Nevers Field. In identical fashion to a 4-3 overtime home win over Trinity College two weeks earlier, Agyemang had two goals and an assist and also scored the game-winner against Western as Eastern remained perfect (4-0-0) at home. The team leader with 15 points, the 6-foot-3 inch Agyemang cut Western’s early lead (two goals in the first 20 minutes) in half with his fifth goal of the season, and with the score tied at 2-all, recorded the game-winning goal late in the first half with a header that gave the Warriors a 3-2 halftime lead. Twelve minutes into the second half, Agyemang assisted on an insurance goal.
Anna Barry, Fr., MH, Andover
Barry moved into second place in the Little East Conference this week by attacking at .455 in ten sets that improved her season mark to .370 for the Warriors, winners of seven straight following a 3-0 week. Also ranked eighth in the LEC in kills (135) and tied for eighth in kills per set (2.60), Barry averaged team-leading statistics in attack percentage, kills (34) and kills per set (3.40) and was second in points (36.5) and points per set (3.65) in ten sets. She also chipped in four blocks. Barry, who has at least 11 kills with a .485 attack percentage in the last five matches, had 11 kills with a .444 attack percentage as the Warriors followed their sweep of UMass Boston Sept. 21 with a Tuesday sweep of Western Connecticut in their first home match since Sept. 1. She also had a block solo and block assist against Western.
Morgan Sanson, Jr., F, Thomaston

The game-winning goal was the second this year for Sanson, who leads Eastern in points (10) and shares the team lead in goals (4) and assists (2). Sanson also assisted on Eastern’s first goal early in the second half against Plymouth.
