PLYMOUTH, N.H. – The Plymouth State College men’s soccer program has received post-season honors, placing three individuals on the Little East
Conference All-Star First Team, three players on the Second Team, and earning the Player of the Year award.

Junior Magnus Eriksson (Arjang, Sweden) received the Player of the Year award for the Little East Conference. Juniors Antoine Moiboueyi (Gabon,
Africa), and Garry Thomson (Glasgow, Scotland) joined Eriksson as LEC First Team All-Stars. In addition, seniors Jeremy Gasowski (Lee, NH), Ceamus
McDermott (Centerville, MA) and Simon Sendowski (Gothenburg, Sweden) were awarded Second Team selections.

Eriksson, three-year veteran starter, anchored the defense which allowed a conference-low 13 goals while posting eight shutouts for the season. He
tallied one goal on the season and two assists for a total of four points. Eriksson was instrumental in blanking its two LEC tournament opponents, limiting both
teams to a total of just 12 shots. This is the fifth time that a PSC player has won Player of the Year honors.

Moiboueyi, a veteran forward, led the Panther attack with eight goals and two assists. His 18 total points ranks him 11th in the LEC in scoring.
Moiboueyi was selected Player of the Week in the LEC on Sept. 17th, after coming off the bench to tally a hat trick in a 5-1 victory over Bridgewater State and
netting the game-winning goal against Roger Williams in the 85th minute.

Thomson gave the Panthers a huge offensive lift, scoring his first two goals of the season in a 4-3 victory over Tufts, which was ranked ninth in New
England. He came back with the game-winning goal against Western Connecticut, heading home the clincher with nine minutes remaining in the contest.
Thomson is the fourth leading scorer on the team with five goals and two assists.

The Panthers’ Second Team All-Stars were all starters, Gasowski at midfield and McDermott and Sendowski on defense. Gasowski collected two
goals and 10 assists and is third on the team in total points. McDermott was a key player throughout the season helping post an impressive eight shutouts and
13 goals in 18 games. Sendowski was also instrumental in helping the defense, in addition to being the second leading goal scorer on the team with seven
goals and one assist.

PSC will host Norwich in the first round of the NCAA tournament, and will meet at 1 p.m. Wednesday at Panther Field in a Northeast Regional battle.
The winner advances to the regional semifinals. Saturday at defending NCAA champion St. Lawrence University in Canton, N.Y., with Hamilton and Plattsburgh
