East Central Community College sophomore midfielder Vitor Gomes has been named the Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges Men’s Soccer Offensive Player of the Week for his efforts Oct. 1-7.

A native of Fortaleza, Brazil, and a product of School of Juvenal de Carvalho, Gomes scored four goals in two matches last week, including a hat trick.

Gomes scored one goal on four shots in a 5-1 loss at Itawamba, and followed that with three goals on six shots in a 5-2 win at home over Northwest to help the Warriors snap a five-match losing streak.

He now has 15 goals on the season, which leads the MACJC North Division and is second among all players in the 10-team league.
