COLCHESTER, Vt. - Saint Michael's College men's soccer sophomore Andres Rivas (Caracas, Venezuela/Palmer Trinity School) earned a selection to the Northeast-10 Conference Weekly Honor Roll for the week ending on Sunday, Oct. 8.

Rivas scored the winning goal with 28 seconds left in the second overtime to lift the Purple Knights to a 2-1 win over Felician (N.J.) University on Saturday.
