Mike Phelan Earns Weekly LEC Men's Soccer Honor

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA- Senior goalkeeper Mike Phelan (Carver, MA/Carver HS) of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth men's soccer team has been honored by the Little East Conference.

Phelan has been named LEC Goalkeeper of the Week.

Phelan allowed one goal in two overtime wins last weekend, making nine saves and posting a goals-against average of 0.46 and a save percentage of .900 as the Corsairs earned victories against the Coast Guard and St. Joseph's (Maine) at the Southern Maine Invitational.

"Mike has had a great start to the season, allowing one goal in our first two matches," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Henry Almeida. "We expect Mike to play a large role for us this season.  His experience and leadership will also make the defense in front of him better.  We are happy to see that Mike has been recognized this early in the season."

The Corsairs will return to action when they host Daniel Webster Saturday evening.
