BALTIMORE - Loyola University Maryland senior Connor Thompson picked up his third all-conference honor Monday, being voted to the All-Patriot League Second Team, as announced by the league office.

The midfielder from Swindon, England recorded Loyola’s first goal of the season when he scored the game-winner against Howard, finishing a give-and-go with sophomore Laurin Vogel. Thompson then bent a free kick into a goal in a 1-0 win over Colgate to get the Greyhounds their first Patriot League win of the year and added a third goal against Lehigh. He was also credited with an assist on classmate Joseph Cahalan’s goal against No. 23 Navy on Senior Day.

Throughout his career, Thompson played in 72 contests, starting 68, and contributed 16 goals, 11 assists and 43 points. He notched six game-winning goals for the Greyhounds and as a sophomore, was named to the NSCAA All-North Atlantic Region Second Team and to the MAAC All-Academic Team after finishing that year with seven goals and six assists for 20 points.
