Liberty field hockey sophomores Mallory Fortenbaugh and Agueda Moroni garnered inclusion on the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll, as announced by the conference this afternoon.

Fortenbaugh's inclusion on the listing is the first of her Liberty career, while Moroni has been named to the honor roll for a second consecutive week.

Fortenbaugh anchored a Liberty defense that yielded just two total goals to visiting Villanova and Kent State in a pair of wins, last weekend. The Lady Flames recorded their first shutout on Saturday in a 3-0 victory over the Wildcats, a game in which Fortenbaugh also recorded an assist.

The native of Millerstown, Pa., tallied her first goal of the year and two assists on penalty corners in a 7-2 triumph over the Kent State Golden Flashes, Sunday afternoon. Fortenbaugh leads the team in assists (4) and is third in points (6) through six games.

Moroni notched three goals and two assists in a 2-0 weekend for Liberty field hockey. The Cordoba, Argentina, native scored on a penalty corner in the 31st minute of Saturday's game against Villanova. On Sunday, she posted a six-point performance (2 goals, 2 assists). All six of Moroni's points came after intermission, including goals in the 45th and 58th minutes.

Through six contests, Moroni paces the Lady Flames in goals (7), points (16) and shots (32). Moroni is now Liberty's active career goals leader with 17.

The Lady Flames (3-3, 1-0 BIG EAST) will head to the state of Connecticut for a pair of matches, later this week. Liberty will face off against BIG EAST foe Quinnipiac (2-6, 1-0 BIG EAST) in Hamden, Conn., on Friday at 3 p.m. On Sunday, the Lady Flames will play a non-conference match at Yale (3-3) at 2 p.m.
