PAWTUCKET, R.I. – For the second time this season, University of Massachusetts Dartmouth freshman Alexis Pacheco (Swansea, Mass.) has been selected as the Little East Conference Women’s Soccer Rookie of the Week.
In a 2-0 week for the Corsairs, Pacheco added two more goals to her season total, adding a tally apiece in both games. On Tuesday, senior Liz Stearns (Medway, Mass.) found Pacheco on a corner to cement a 3-0 shutout at Eastern Nazarene, and on Saturday, the freshman put UMass Dartmouth out of reach with an unassisted second-half score in a 2-1 victory over Rhode Island College.
With four goals on the year, Pacheco leads the Corsair roster. UMass Dartmouth (4-8-1, 2-2-0 LEC) looks to extend its winning streak to three games on the road tonight, traveling to Johnson & Wales for a 7 p.m. starting whistle.
