PSC’s Moiboueyi Earns Top L.E.C. Honor

October 6th, 1998 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H.. – A freshman on the Plymouth State College men’s soccer team has received the top weekly honor by the Little East Conference
after helping PSC remain unbeaten with a pair of wins last week.

Forward Antoine Moiboueyi (Gabon, Africa/Acton-Boxboro H.S.-Mass.) was selected the LEC Player of the Week, the third straight week the honor
has gone to a Plymouth State player. Moiboueyi was instrumental in PSC’s key wins last week over Bates and Western Connecticut, scoring the insurance goal in a
2-0 win over Bates and adding two goals and an assist in a 3-1 win at WCSU. His second score, the game-winner, came less than a minute after the Colonials had
tied the game at 1-1.

A reserve who has come off the bench in six of PSC’s nine matches, Moiboueyi has now scored four times in the last three Panther games; he also notched
the game winner in the closing minutes against Keene State on Sept. 26. He is tied with teammate Kevin Martin (Foxboro, MA) for second on the team and 15th in
the LEC in scoring with nine points, both with four goals and one assist.

The Panthers are having a terrific season under seventh-year head coach Shawn Griffin. At 8-0-1 overall and 2-0-0 in the Little East, PSC is ranked #3 in
New England and #17 in the nation in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America Division III polls. Plymouth State has won 10 straight LEC matches
dating back to 1996.

PSC has two more key games this week, beginning Wednesday (Oct. 7) at Panther Field against Salem State, which at 7-1-1 is ranked one notch below
PSC (#4) in the Division III New England poll. The game has been moved back to 6:00 p.m. at Panther Field. Plymouth State then makes the trip to Providence
Saturday (Oct. 10) to battle LEC foe Rhode Island College (1:00 p.m.).

Panther Notes: Junior goalkeeper Shawn Higgins (Foxboro, MA) had the difficult task this season of replacing four-year starter Magnus Karlsson, an
All-Conference keeper. A transfer from Central Connecticut, Higgins played reserve forward in ’97 and scored nine goals, while waiting his turn for a shot at
goalkeeper. He has made the most of his opportunity in ’98, leading the Little East Conference in goals against average. Higgins has made 43 saves and four
shutouts while maintaining a slim 0.54 goals against…….Senior Jesse Elderkin (Concord, NH) is among the LEC scoring leaders. He is currently third with 17
points (seven goals, three assists).
