O'Coin totaled seven points this week with a hat trick against Yale, tying a Patriot League season-high for goals in a game, and added an assist versus Lafayette. She now leads Holy Cross with 26 points including nine goals and eight assists. O'Coin ranks second in points (26), third in goals (nine) and tied for first in assists (eight) in the Patriot League.
