Dartmouth, Mass. -- UMass Dartmouth senior back Joao Correia earned a spot on the 2018 Little East men’s soccer all-conference team that was released earlier today by the league office, as the Corsair co-captain collected second team accolades in a vote of the conference’s nine coaches.
Correia, a native of Peabody, Mass. and a graduate of Peabody Veterans High School, helped lead a UMass Dartmouth defensive corps that recorded four shutouts and allowed one or fewer goals in seven total contests. Joao chipped in with a pair of goals on offense for Head Coach Henry Almeida’s squad, as he netted 15 total points (six goals, nine assists) in 46 career matches.
The Corsairs posted a pair of triumphs to go with three ties this fall, as UMass Dartmouth just missed out on earning a Little East post-season berth in Almeida’s 11th campaign at the helm.
