Victor Ferreira Earns LEC Men's Soccer Honors


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

Ferreira has been named LEC Men's Soccer Offensive Player of the Week. It's the first time this season that he has been so honored.

Ferreira led UMass Dartmouth last week with four goals and one assist for nine points. He scored three goals, including the game-winning goal in sudden-death overtime, as the Corsairs defeated Southern Maine Saturday. Last Thursday night, he scored a goal and added an assist in a 3-0 victory against Massachusetts Maritime.

"We're happy for Victor," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Henry Almeida. "We're at the point in the season where Victor has really picked up his game. He attacks the goal and distributes the ball and is giving us what we need from him. He has really stepped up his game, and that's a good thing for us."

The Corsairs are 10-3-0 and 5-0-0 in the LEC and will host Worcester State Tuesday.
