Joe Sousa Named Little East Conference
Menís Soccer Rookie of the Week

 

 

Providence, RI Ė Rhode Island College freshman defender Joe Sousa (Bristol, RI) was named the Little East Conference Menís Soccer Rookie of the Week for his performance in two games last week.

 

Sousa contributed in both tallies as Rhode Island College edged Southern Maine, 2-1, in the regular season finale on Oct. 27. In just the second minute, he set up the Anchormenís first goal off a free kick from 35-yards out, while registering the game-winning goal off a set piece in the 69th minute from midfield. It was Sousaís first career marker and it helped Rhode Island College earn the fourth and final seed in the Little East Conference Menís Soccer Tournament.

 

For the season, he has played in 14 games, starting 12 of them. He has one goal and two assists for four points.

 

Head Coach John Melloís team is the fourth seed in the upcoming 2007 Little East Conference Menís Soccer Tournament and will play at top-seeded Eastern Connecticut on Wednesday, Oct. 31 at 3 p.m. The Anchormen are 8-8-2 overall.
