Adams Earns Back-to-Back NEWMAC Defensive Athlete of the Week Accolades

Rufus Adams

Westwood, MA --- For the third time this season, and second time in as many weeks, WPI's Rufus Adams (Duxbury, MA) has been lauded as the NEWMAC Men's Soccer Defensive Athlete of the Week.

Adams stopped all eight shots he faced in 200 minutes of action. After halting four in a 1-0 win at Endicott, the junior went the distance in a double OT draw at Babson. The backline of Christopher Martenson, Ben Rickson, Mike Biando and Erik Herrera also helped the lead versus the Gulls stand. Saturday's shutout served as Adams' fourth of the season and 10th of his career.

Clark's Charlie Lane (Southboro, MA) was selected as this week's offensive honoree.

Adams and the Engineers (4-1-2) venture to Roger Williams for a 7pm non-conference match tomorrow night.
