Men’s Soccer 5-2, Best Start Since 2006
The men’s soccer team won two more games this week, pushing their record to 5-2 and securing their best start since 2006. Freshman Edmilson Barros, of Boston, scored three goals in three games and was named Little East Conference Men’s Soccer Rookie of the Week.
The Beacons return to action today when they travel to Salem State University for a 4 p.m. non-conference game.
Senior Anitra Kloczewiak of Newton set a program record with her 24th career singles win, just a week after tying alumna Denise Ridge '06 for the top spot in Beacons history. Kloczewiak, also the Beacons’ all-time leader in career wins (53) and doubles victories (29), was named the Little East Conference Player of the Week on Monday. As a team, UMass Boston (1-4) couldn't overcome Johnson & Wales University on Wednesday or Worcester State University on Saturday. The latter was a marathon 4:43 match.
UMass Boston (4-5) came back from a 2-0 deficit to earn a 3-2 win in their home opener Wednesday. Patsy Boland, a freshman from Chicago, led the team with 19 kills. The team next travels to New York City for the two-day NYU Invitational.
The women (2-3) lost in overtime to No. 31 Wheaton College on Thursday, their third straight overtime loss to Wheaton. The team next plays Saturday against one of its Little East Conference opponents, the University of Southern Maine.
