Vallone named America East Conference men's soccer Player of the Week
VESTAL, N.Y.-- Senior back Luc Vallone (Hoosick Falls, N.Y./Hoosick Falls) has been named the America East Conference Player of the Week for Sept. 18-25. It is the first time in his career he has received the honor and also is the first time this season that a Binghamton player has earned the weekly accolade.
Valone scored two goals and added one assist in Binghamtons two victories last week. He had a goal and an assist in Binghamtons 3-2 come-from-behind win at Vermont on Saturday in the teams first conference game of the year. With Binghamton down 2-1, Vallone assisted on the tying goal with 17:14 left in regulation. He then took matters into his own hands, scoring the winning goal with 12:11 left to go. Earlier in the week, Vallone netted a goal in Binghamtons 3-0 win over Oneonta.
"Luc has put the extra time and energy into winning a starting role on our team," head coach Paul Marco said. "He has taken advantage of the opportunity and his game-winning goal against Vermont was fantastic.
Binghamton (7-1-1, 1-0 AE) is currently ranked No. 25 in the nation by College Soccer News and No. 21 in the NSCAA/adidas Top 25 Poll. The Bearcats head to Bucknell for a 7 p.m. game on Wednesday.
