Yuran Teixeira Earns LEC Rookie of the Week Honors

PAWTUCKET, R.I.—After putting together the best game of his collegiate career, freshman forward Yuran Teixeira (Praia, Cape Verde) was named the Little East Conference Rookie of the Week, the league office announced Monday afternoon. 

Teixeira recorded his first two collegiate assists to lead #15 men's soccer past Colby-Sawyer College 4-0. In his first collegiate start, Teixeira set up each of the Beacons' first two goals to lead the Beacons to their first win of the season. 

In three games, Teixeira has recorded two assists and three shots and helped UMass Boston off to a 1-0-2 start. 

The Beacons will look to stay unbeaten, when they travel to take on Wentworth Institute of Technology on Monday night at 7pm.
