Men's soccer lands three on the first team and two on the second team
BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – The awards keep rolling in as five members of the Florida Tech men’s soccer team were included in the United Soccer Coaches All-South Region team, announced Monday, Dec. 9.
Three men made the first team and will be available for All-America honors. While two more members tallied second team nods.
The trio of Guillermo Segovia, Craig McCall and Jason Fesquet got top billing as the three received All-South first team honors. This distinction will push the men on to the next round of nominations, which are for All-American status.
Segovia was the Crimson and Gray’s main force in the attacking third as the forward tallied team-highs in both goals and assists with eight apiece which gave him 24 total points. These numbers lent themselves to the Spain native’s admittance to the D2CCA All-South Region first team and All-SSC first team.
McCall was the Panthers vocal leader as he helped keep the team in formation from his position in the midfield. The dual threat punished the opposition on the defensive end and found success in the attacking third as he recorded six assists. This is the Scotland native’s second postseason award as he earned All-SSC second team.
Fesquet had one of the best seasons for a Florida Tech keeper as he recorded 51 saves for a save percentage of 0.785. This helped the Frenchman to a 0.82 goals against average, eight solo shutouts and one combined shutout.
His impressive play has made quite the impression as he has been named All-SSC first team and D2CCA All-South Region second team.
The United Soccer Coaches organization awarded Luca Campanini and Erlend Hafstad Eikeland with second team laurels. Campanini was a constant presence in the Panthers midfield and used his vast ball skills to record two goals and six assists.
Eikeland stopped the opposition in their tracks throughout the season as he helped lead one of the nation’s top defensive units. He also was a menace on set pieces as he totaled three goals and three assists.
