Emmy Fontaine Earns "Lyon of the Week" AwardSenior soccer player Emmy Fontaine has been named "Lyon of the Week" for the week of October 27-November 2. The midfielder recorded two goals in a 1-1 week for Mount Holyoke. She registered the match winning goal in Mount Holyoke's dramatic 2-1 triumph over Coast Guard Academy on Tuesday. With the win, the Lyons cliched a spot in the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Tournament for the first time since 2005. They entered the tournament as the seventh seed and travelled to second seeded Wheaton College on Saturday. After playing to a 1-1 tie through 90 minutes of regulation play and a pair of ten minute overtime periods, the teams went to a penalty kick shootout. Wheaton eventually prevailed in the shootout, outscoring Mount Holyoke 4-1 to secure a spot in the NEWMAC Semifinals. Fontaine was responsible for the Lyons lone goal in the contest, which knotted things up at 1-1 in the 52nd minute.
