Mike Phelan Earns LEC Goalkeeping Honors

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA--Junior goalkeeper Mike Phelan (Carver, MA/Carver HS) of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth men's soccer team has been honored by the Little East Conference.


Phelan has been named LEC Goalkeeper of the Week. It's the second time this season that he has been so honored.


Phelan allowed one goal in two matches last week, making two saves in blanking Western Connecticut State, and stopping four shots in a 1-0, double overtime loss to Salve Regina.


"I'd like to congratulate Mike on a well deserved award," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Henry Almeida. "He's been playing well all season. Mike takes his role as a senior captain very seriously and is a positive force on the back line, which helps us play better defense as a unit."


The Corsairs are 6-1 and will visit Connecticut College Wednesday.
