Andrew Eggleston Earns Little East Conference Honors

Oct. 13, 2009

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-Junior defender Andrew Eggleston (Belchertown, MA/Belchertown HS) of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth men's soccer team has been honored by the Little East Conference.

Eggleston has been named Little East Conference Co-Defensive Player of the Week.

Eggleston helped lead UMass Dartmouth to two shutout victories last week, 2-0 against Emmanuel and 1-0 at Keene State. Against the Owls, Eggleston was assigned the task of marking Keene State's top scorer, and the Corsairs are just the second team to blank KSC this season.

"Andrew has been unheralded all season, but he's a great marking defender who has been shutting down the opposing team's top scorers," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Henry Almeida. "He did a great job at Keene State."

UMass Dartmouth is 8-2-0, 2-1-0 in LEC play, and will return to action Tuesday evening when they visit Tufts.
