Victor Ferreira Earns Conference Honors

Sept. 13, 2010

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-Freshman forward Victor Ferreira (St. Michael, Portugal/New Bedford HS) of the UMass Dartmouth men's soccer team has been honored by the Little East Conference.


Ferreira has been named Little East Conference Men's Soccer Offensive Player of the Week.


Ferreira scored four goals in the second half of Saturday's game against Fitchburg State as the Corsairs broke a scoreless tie at halftime and went on to a 5-0 victory. He has played in two of UMass Dartmouth's three games, and leads the Corsairs with four goals and eight points.


"Obviously, we're very happy for him," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Henry Almeida. "We feel it's well-deserved. We've been waiting for some of our younger guys to step up. Any time you can score four goals in a half it's impressive. We're expecting big things from him, and the entire team is happy to have Victor."


UMass Dartmouth is 3-0 and will visit Salem State Wednesday evening.
