RUIZ NAMED LITTLE EAST OFFENSIVE
PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Providence, R.I.—Rhode Island College senior midfielder Jose Ruiz (Providence, RI) was named the Little East Conference Men’s Soccer Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in two Anchormen victories.

 

 

 

Ruiz helped Rhode Island College raise its current win streak to five matches as the Anchormen defeated Bridgewater State (2-1) and Western Connecticut (7-0) this past week. He registered a season-high seven points, on three goals and a helper, in the conference victory over the Colonials on Sept. 25. Earlier in the week, Ruiz assisted on the game-winning goal with less than five minutes remaining in regulation against the Bears.

 

For the season, he has played in five games, starting all of them. Ruiz has three goals and two assists for eight points.

 

Head Coach John Mello’s team is currently 6-2 overall and 2-0 in the Little East. In upcoming action, RIC will travel to Framingham State on Wednesday, Sept. 29.
