PSC’s Elderkin Named LEC Player of the Week

September 22nd, 1998 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H. – A Plymouth State College men’s soccer player has been honored by the Little East Conference as the Panthers enter one of the
toughest weeks of the season.

Senior Jesse Elderkin (Concord, NH), who was on the LEC Honor Roll a week ago, earned Player of the Week accolades for his having a hand in all
four PSC goals in a 4-1 win over Bridgewater State. He scored two goals, including the game winner, and assisted on the other two. Elderkin leads PSC in scoring
and is tied for sixth in the Little East with four goals and two assists.

The Panthers, who remained at #3 in this week’s NSCAA New England Division III poll, face two ranked teams this week. PSC makes a visit Wednesday
(Sept. 23) to Wheaton College, which is ranked #2 in New England, and returns home Saturday (Sept. 26) to host Keene State, New England’s eighth ranked
team. The Plymouth State-Keene State game, PSC’s annual Homecoming affair and Little East Conference opener, begins under the new lights at Panther Field at
7:00 p.m., the first home night men’s soccer game in school history.

Plymouth State, 4-0-1 overall, is ranked 20th in this week’s NSCAA Division III National poll.

Panther Notes: Junior goalkeeper Shawn Higgins (Foxboro, MA) continues to lead the Little East Conference in goals against average. Higgins has
made 21 saves and two shutouts while maintaining a slim 0.56 goals against……. PSC has won two straight Little East Conference titles, and four overall. The
Panthers were the pre-season pick to “three-peat” as conference champs, but Keene State was a close second……. PSC has a career record of 67-35-8 under
head coach Shawn Griffin, who’s now in his seventh season as head coach at his alma mater.
