Nov. 16, 2010

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-Four members of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's men's soccer team have received post-season honors from the Little East Conference.

Freshman forward Victor Ferreira (St. Michael, Portugal/New Bedford HS) was named first team All-Conference, while senior midfielder Mike Alves (Seekonk, MA/Seekonk HS), senior forward Kyle Estrella (Dartmouth, MA/Dartmouth HS/Rhode Island College) and sophomore defender Brady Paradis (Tiverton, RI/Providence Country Day HS) received second team honors.

Ferreira led the Corsairs with 10 goals and three assists for 23 points. He ranked third in the LEC in points and points per game, and was second in goals and goals per game. Alves was second with four goals and three assists for 11 points, Estrella tied for third with four goals for eight points, and Paradis finished with one goal and two assists for four points. Ferreira had five game-winning goals, which led the LEC, while Alves had two.

"I was excited for everyone who was honored," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Henry Almeida. "For Victor to make first team as a freshman speaks well for his contribution to us and to our season. The honors for Brady, Mike and Kyle were also well-deserved. We were really hoping that one or two of them would make first team, but for them to be nominated and considered speaks well for their consistent play all year long."

The Corsairs finished at 10-6-2 and advanced to the semi-finals of the Little East Conference Tournament.
