Steven Paquette enters his third season as an assistant coach for the Husson women's soccer program in 2019.
2017: In his first season on the staff, Paquette helped Husson post a 9-7-1 overall and a 6-2-1 mark in North Atlantic Conference (NAC) in 2017. The Eagles earned the #4 seed in the conference tournament and advanced to the Championship final for the first time in seven years with a 3-1 first-round triumph over #5 Maine Maritime Academy and then a double overtime, 1-0, upset over top-seed Colby-Sawyer. The 2017 campaign came to a close with a double overtime, 1-0, setback at the hands of second-seeded Castleton University in the very last matchup between the long time rivals as conference foes on November 4th.
Prior to joining the Eagle coaching staff, Paquette was a four-year letterwinner as a member of the Husson men's soccer team as a goalkeeper from 2013-16, helping the Eagles win a NAC Championship in 2014.
Paquette posted a 5-4-1 record and made 52 saves with 1.2 shutouts, a goals against average of 1.82, a save percentage of .732, while only allowing 19 goals in 940 career minutes played.
Paquette ranks among the career leaders in fewest goals allowed per game (1.35), goals against average, wins, and ties.
Paquette will graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with an emphasis in Sports Management from Husson in the fall of 2018.
