BU men's soccer players earn all-conference honors
East Conference Release
VESTAL, N.Y.---Senior back Barry
Neville and senior midfielder Justin
Leskow have each been named first-team all-conference
for the 2008 season, the America East announced today. The senior
duo was among six Binghamton players to earn all-conference accolades.
Earning second team honors were senior forward Cameron
Keith and sophomore back Kyle
Manscuk. Freshman forward Andy
Tiedt and freshman midfielder Ryan
Walter were named to the All-Rookie Team.
Neville, who was a first-team midfielder in 2007, moved to the
one of the center back positions when senior Liam
Carson suffered an injury early in the season. Since
then, he has anchored a defense that currently ranks fifth in
the nation with a 0.54 goals against average.
Leskow makes his first appearance on the all-conference team.
He netted a pair of game-winning goals this season.
Keith, the 2007 America East Striker of the Year, has led the
squad with seven goals and 15 points. He was named the America
East Player of the Week on Oct. 26.
Manscuk, who was named to the All-Rookie team last season, was
the other starting center back. Along with Neville, he paced
a defense that has recorded 10 shutouts.
Tiedt currently has two goals and a pair of assists. He was named
the America East Rookie of the Week on Sept. 15 after scoring
the game-winning goal against then No. 21 Wisconsin.
Walter earned a starting midfield spot during preseason and has
held on to it ever since. He tallied an assist in the Bearcats'
win at Cornell on Sept. 26.
Binghamton (10-5-3) is the No. 3 seed heading into the America
East Tournament. The Bearcats host No. 6 New Hampshire on Saturday
at 7 p.m.
