During her senior season at Hofstra University, the accolades for Kristin Desmond were aplenty as she led the Pride to a Colonial Athletic Association title and a berth in the NCAA Tournament.

Now, in her first season with SUSA FC’s WPSL squad, Desmond has started the 2018 campaign with another honor as the East Northport native was named WPSL Metropolitan Conference Player of the Week.

In SUSA’s season-opening match on June 2, a 3-2 come-from-behind win over New York Athletic Club at Bayport-Blue Point High School, Desmond netted two goals.

Her strong start to the WPSL season follows her final year at Hofstra in which she was named a United Soccer Coaches Third-Team All-American, the CAA Player of the Year, CAA Tournament MVP and All-CAA First-Team.

SUSA continues its season Saturday against Long Island Fury and Sunday vs. New Jersey Wildcats.
