      Franklin, MA (November 13, 2016) – The Dean College men’s soccer team ended their season with an outstanding 17-2 record. In its first year as a four-year program, the team earned an at-large bid as the number four seed in the United States Collegiate Athletic Association’s (USCAA) National Tournament held in Virginia Beach, Virginia November 10-14, 2016.

      The Bulldogs were placed in Pool D of the preliminary round with Florida National University, the fifth seed, and Berkeley College of New Jersey, the ninth seed.

      On Thursday, November 10th, Dean fell short to FNU with a final score of 2-1. Dean’s Justin Freitas scored with fifteen minutes to go in the contest.

      To advance to the semifinals on Sunday, the Bulldogs had to defeat Berkeley (NJ) on Friday, November 11th and Berkeley (NJ) had to defeat FNU on Saturday, November 12th.

      The Bulldogs soundly defeated Berkeley (NJ), 6-0. Pepe Vieira scored two goals to lead all Dean scorers as the Bulldogs raced to a 4-0 halftime lead. However, the outcome was not favorable for Berkeley (NJ), who were defeated on Saturday by FNU 6-0, ending Dean’s tournament journey.

      Besides their 16-1 record, the Dean Bulldogs were first in the USCAA in goals (99), assists (77) and goals against average (0.18), giving up only three goals all year.

      Additionally, four members of the team (Brendan Pacheco, Isaac DeSouza, Justin Freitas and Murilo Zanette) were recognized at the USCAA Championship banquet for making the Men’s Soccer National All-Academic Team.
