 September 9, 2009

Division I    

  Leonardo Reyes (Hillview; Arima, Trinidad) netted his first career collegiate hat trick for East Mississippi with three goals in the Lions' 9-1 season-opening home win over East Central.  He followed this showing with a pair of goals in each of his next two games.  The sophomore has been instrumental in changing the attitude of the Lions, coming off a 1-12-1 season in 2008, to going 3-0 so far in 2009. Reyes scored seven goals and added two assists in his first week on the field, giving him the No. 2 ranking in the nation with 16 points.
 Division III    


Matt Maccarone (Kingsway Regional; Mickleton, N.J.) has already proved to be a great asset to Gloucester County College this season.  The sophomore tallied two goals off fhree shots in a 5-1 win over Salem and a goal in a 2-0 win over Hartford.  A solid defender, he started both games on defense before shifting to forward to give his team the lead.  Maccarone then moved back to defense to help keep the lead, including an  instrumental play in the Harford game when he deflecting a shot on the goal line that would have cost his team the game.  An all-around threat, Maccarone, a top 10 scorer in the nation, is the NJCAA Division III player of the week.



  John Weber (Morristown; Morristown, N.J.) recorded a shut out week for County College of Morris to be named the NJCAA Division III goalie of the week.  The sophomore recorded 18 saves off 18 shots over four games last week.  Weber was dymanic in the Northeast Cup last weekend, holding Tompkins Cortland and Mohawk Valley scoreless.  Weber currently leads D3 in goalkeeping, playing 320 minutes and allowing no goals.
