Congratulations to Eduardo Bardello, forward from the RRC Rebels men’s futsal team, who is our male athlete of the week!
The Brazilian native has been the backbone of both Rebels soccer and futsal teams this season. His two goals this past weekend helped lift the Rebels to their first victory of the season in a 5-4 win over USB Les Rouges. Bardello now sits in a tie for eighth in the conference with seven total goals on the season.
“Eduardo plays both sides of the ball equally well,” said Rebels head coach Charles Mrena. “A perfect example came this weekend when he got himself behind our sprawling keeper to keep the ball out of the net – that heroic effort was a turning point for us.”
The Rebels visit the Providence Pilots (2-4) on Saturday, February 9 as they look to get into the playoff picture with just four games remaining in their season.
