Her performance, spanning three games for the women’s soccer at the University of Massachusetts Boston, was unlike any other she had ever experienced.

Krista Ledin scored 10 times in the three Beacon wins, including all five in a shutout of Salve Regina on Oct. 14, earning Division 3 Player of the Week honors from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.

The 5-foot-3 junior forward from Bridgewater is a scoring machine and a coach’s dream.

Ledin, who paces the Beacons (13-4), and the Little East Conference with 24 goals and 53 points, has scored six game-winning goals (19 for her career), representing 42 percent of the 45 games UMass-Boston has won during her career.
