Stenta named ECAC Men's Soccer Co-Defensive Player of the Week
VESTAL, N.Y. -- The honors keep coming for redshirt freshman goalkeeper Jason Stenta (Binghamton, N.Y.). One day after being named the America East Conference Men's Soccer Player of the Week for the second time this season, he was named the ECAC (Eastern College Athletic Conference) Division I Co-Defensive Player of the Week. The ECAC has over 320 members, including 87 NCAA Division I schools spanning from Maine to Georgia.
Stenta earned the award by virtue of his two shutouts last week, which were instrumental in the Bearcats clinching their first-ever America East Conference regular season title. He made four saves, including a pair of stops from close range in the final 15 minutes, in a 1-0 win at Albany last Wednesday. While he did not record a save in Saturday's scoreless tie against Vermont, Stenta organized the defense en route to Binghamton's sixth shutout of the year.
Stenta finished the regular season with a 0.68 goals against average, including a microscopic 0.36 mark against America East Conference squads. Heading into the America East Conference Tournament, he has posted three consecutive shutouts and six for the season.
Binghamton (8-6-4) is the No. 1 seed heading into the America East Conference Tournament. The Bearcats have a first-round by and will host the winner of the Boston-Albany game (to be held on Oct. 28) on Wednesday, Nov. 1 at 1 p.m.
