McCaffery, Coombes Earn Little East Men's Lacrosse Weekly Honors

UMass Dartmouth junior Ted McCaffery and freshman long stick midfielder Jake Coombes were named as the respective Little East Conference Men’s Lacrosse Goalie and Defensive Player of the Week on Monday afternoon for their efforts in last week’s 10-6 victory at Dean.

McCaffery, a native of Pepperell, Mass. and a graduate of Bishop Guertin High School, made eight saves in net on the day for the Corsairs, while Coombes, a native of Chelmsford, Mass. and a graduate of Chelmsford High School, collected four ground balls and caused a pair of turnovers against the Bulldogs.

Head Coach Ryan Murphy’s squad, which stands at 2-1 on the young season, begins a three-match home stand on Wednesday afternoon when UMass Dartmouth welcomes MIT to Cressy Field for a non-league clash that begins at 4:00 pm EDT.
