“Rashid is a fantastic player who has exquisite touch on the ball. He can receive a ball in a very tight area, get off shots quickly and beat defenders one-on-one. If he’s not scoring, he attracts the attention of opposing teams, which opens up opportunities for other players.” – Mike Russo, Head Coach

Rashid took five shots, four of which were on target, and scored twice to help the men beat Middlebury 3-2 and advance to the NESCAC semifinals. His first goal came in the 27th minute after he coolly slotted home a cross from Malcolm Moutenot ’17 to level the score at one. In the 57th minute, Rashid scored the third and winning goal for the Ephs. He perfectly controlled a lobbed through ball and needed just one more touch to power the ball just inside the left goalpost to put the men up 3-1. Rashid was named NESCAC Player of the Week for his performance.
