Sept. 7, 2010

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-Sophomore 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 Little East Conference Goalkeeper of the Week.

Phelan made six saves in the Corsairs' 1-0 season-opening win against Salve Regina Saturday.

"I was glad to see that Mike was recognized," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Henry Almeida. "Mike played well, and he is maturing in front of our eyes. He's becoming more aggressive and more consistent, he's gaining confidence, and his play is helping our defense on the field. We're really happy with his progress."

UMass Dartmouth will return to action Tuesday evening when they host Mount Ida.
