Elton Borges Honored by Little East Conference

Sept. 12, 2011

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-Early in his first season, freshman forward Elton Borges (Praia, Cape Verde/Burke HS) has received a Little East Conference honor.

Borges has been named Little East Conference Men's Soccer Rookie of the Week.

Borges scored three goals and added one assist for seven points in UMass Dartmouth's first three games, helping lead the Corsairs to a 2-1 record. He scored UMass Dartmouth's first goal of the season against Western New England, then scored twice and added an assist in a 5-2 victory against Eastern Nazarene.

"Elton has worked hard since day one of camp, he's a talented and confident young man who we look at as one of our legitimate scoring threats," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Henry Almeida. "We expect a lot from him. It's all about his work ethic and his commitment to getting better from day in and day out."

The Corsairs are 2-1 and will return to action when they host Salem State Wednesday.
