Brenton Beaufils Earns LEC Honors

Oct. 18, 2010

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-Freshman forward Brenton Beaufils (Charlestown, MA/Charlestown HS) of the UMass Dartmouth men's soccer team has been honored by the Little East Conference.

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

In three matches last week, Beaufils scored three goals for six points to help lead UMass Dartmouth to a 2-1 mark. He scored the tying goal with 1:18 left in regulation time against Tufts last Tuesday night in a match that the Corsairs went on to win in overtime. Last Thursday evening, he scored twice in a 6-2 victory at Massachusetts Maritime.

"We're very happy for Brenton," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Henry Almeida. "He is a hard worker who has seen limited playing time, but when he gets his opportunities, he makes them count. That bodes well for the future, and we're looking forward to Brenton being a key part of our success."

UMass Dartmouth is 8-3-2 and will host Worcester State Wednesday.
