Meanwhile, in 19 games played as a short-stick specialist for the Gulls, Souza registered 12 caused turnovers and 29 ground balls to go along with one assist. Souza ranked 25th overall in the conference in ground balls and 26th in caused turnovers.
The duo also guided Endicott to rank first overall in the CCC in goals against average (8.37), total goals against (161) and caused turnovers (164), tied for first in most clears (343), second in clear percentage (.815), and third in ground balls (639).
