PSC Captures Pilgrim League Honors

May 12th, 1998 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, NH – Three Plymouth State College men’s lacrosse players have been selected to the Pilgrim League All-Star Team for their outstanding
play for the Panthers this season.

PSC sophomore Travis Moore (South Berwick, ME) was named Pilgrim League Northwest Division Player of the Year, and was joined on the
All-Northwest Division squad by teammates Brendan Burke (Beverly, MA) and Eric Emilo (Middlebury, VT). Moore was PSC’s only selection on the Pilgrim
overall All-League Team.

Moore turned in an outstanding campaign from his midfield position in ‘98. He finished the season second on the team in scoring with 41 goals, 32 assists
and 73 points. His 73 points is the seventh-best single-season total in PSC history, and the 41 goals is ninth-best. The 5’9″, 155-pound speedster has already
moved into 10th on PSC’a all-time scoring list with 110 points (57 goals, 53 assists). He saved his best performance this spring for the post-season, scoring seven
goals and three assists in a Pilgrim League play-off win over Wheaton, 14-13.

Burke wrapped up an outstanding four-year career with the Panthers this season. As a crease attacker, he tied for third on the team with 36 goals, while
adding two assists. He is only the fourth player in school history to score 100 career goals, reaching the milestone last month in a game against Colby. His career
totals of 118 goals and 129 points place him fourth on PSC’s all-time goals list and seventh on the all-time points list.

Emilo was the backbone of a solid Panther defense, one that allowed an average of 11.71 goals a game. The 6’2, 210-pound defenseman used his size and
strength to physically patrol the crease area, causing trouble for opposing attackers. Emilo also contributed two goals to the Panther offensive effort.

These three individuals helped PSC post an 11-6 overall record under 21st-year head coach Dave Webster. The Panthers, who finished the regular
season at 4-1 in Pilgrim League games, knocked off Wheaton, 14-13, in the semi-finals before falling to two-time champion Eastern Connecticut in the Pilgrim
League final, 22-10.
