Her two goals and three assists added an additional seven points to her total, making her the UCM all-time leader in career points. Scott broke the previous record of 96, set by Teleshia Joseph in 2001.

Following Dilkes’ first absence from the MIAA Goalkeeper of the Week award, the senior goalkeeper made her way back into the spotlight this week with a pair of shut-out victories to claim her seventh MIAA award in eight weeks.
