Milford senior Leo Coelho has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for Oct. 4 through Oct. 10. Coelho is the first player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2020-21 school year.
Coelho, the reigning Hockomock League MVP and HockomockSports.com Player of the Year, has started right where he left off last season, scoring four goals and assisting on four others to help the Hawks pick up a pair of wins in the opening week. With Coelho leading the way, Milford beat Franklin twice and outscored the Panthers 10-0.
“Offensively Leo was nearly perfect over the span of our first two games,” said Milford coach Antonio Pinto. “With four goals and four assists it was not enough for him, he’s always hungry for more and it’s a joy to watch him compete.”
In the opening game of the season, Coelho notched the first goal of the fall to give Milford the first half lead and then added the fourth goal in a 4-0 victory. He kept up that form two days later, assisting on the opening goal by Eduardo Castro. In the second half, Coelho scored twice and then assisted on three goals by classmate Lucas Da Silva. The two seniors have already combined for four of the team’s 10 goals and have totaled 14 points between them in just two games.
The Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, is selected by the HockomockSports.com staff. Nominations can be submitted throughout the week up until Saturday night at midnight. There may be a poll posted on every Sunday with the nominations. The results of the poll influence the selection but do not strictly dictate the decision.
