Maura Goncalves Earns LEC Women's Soccer Honors

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-Sophomore forward Maura Goncalves (Dartmouth, MA/Dartmouth HS) of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth women's soccer team has been honored by the Little East Conference.

Goncalves has been named LEC Offensive Player of the Week.

Goncalves scored both goals in the Corsairs' match Tuesday at Salve Regina, then scored the game-winning goal and added an assist as UMass Dartmouth blanked Nichols on Saturday.

"Maura had been playing outside midfield for us, and as soon as we moved her to forward, she scored twice against Salve and had a goal and an assist Saturday," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Nicole Hanewich. "Maura is a serious competitor. She works really hard, can win the ball and has a nose for the goal. It was great to see her recognized by the conference."

The Corsairs are 2-1 this season and will host Eastern Nazarene Tuesday.
