Rodrigues, a junior, led the Stags in scoring over the final month of the season. The midfielder had 13 goals in five conference games for Fairfield. He posted four multi-goal games including a three goal performance in the win over then ranked No. 15 Towson and a career-high five goals in a one score loss to Drexel. His no-look-back-handed tally in the fourth quarter against the Dragons was voted as the Lax Sports Network Play of the Week. Rodrigues' 13 total goals in conference play was also just one shy for the league lead in CAA play.
