KANSAS CITY, Kan. - Loyola University Maryland men’s soccer senior Stephen Dooley and sophomore Larry Ndjock were named to the 2013 NCAA Division I All-Mid Atlantic Region second team, as announced by the National Soccer Coaches of America Association Tuesday afternoon.
Dooley is making his second straight appearance on the all-region team, as he was included on the third-team as a junior. The team’s senior captain was most recently named a first team Patriot League selection, capping off his career with his third-straight all-conference honor. The midfielder from Portstewart, Northern Ireland, was a first-team All-MAAC selection as a sophomore and a second-team honoree as a junior.
A member of the Preseason Patriot League Team this year, Dooley finished the year ranked third in the League with six assists and 10th with 10 points. He scored the game-winning goal while Loyola played a man down in a 2-1 come-from-behind win over Princeton. He also assisted both of the Greyhounds' goals in a 2-0 win over Campbell and Ndjock's game-tying goal in a 1-1 tie at Colgate.
With 22 assists throughout his four seasons, Dooley concluded his career ranked eighth in Loyola's NCAA Division I record book for career assists, while he is tied with Nick Mangione (1976-79) for 11th in all-time program history. He was also named a Senior CLASS Award Candidate this year, while he has was an NSCAA Scholar All-America Third Team honoree in 2012.
Ndjock once again finds himself as a second-team honoree, after tabbing second-team All-North Atlantic Region honors as a freshman. He is the youngest forward to be named to the second team, as his fellow forwards are both upperclassmen from Virginia Commonwealth and St. Bonaventure.
Ndjock received Patriot League second-team honors, after leading the league with 12 goals, 25 points and six game-winning goals this season, while also ranking second in the NCAA with 0.86 goals per game and fourth with 1.79 points per game. A two-time Patriot League Offensive Player of the Week, Ndjock notched his first career hat trick in a 5-3 win at La Salle, sparking a five-game scoring streak that led the Greyhounds to their best start to the season since 2008. The 2013 Patriot League Preseason Player of the Year also recorded five points in a 3-1 win over American, marking the most points a league player put up in conference play this year.
The 2012 MAAC Rookie of the Year and first-team all-conference selection, Ndjock was named to the College Soccer News Preseason All-America Third Team this year and was included on the Top Drawer Soccer Team of the Week in back-to-back weeks (Sept. 11 and Sept. 18).
Throughout his career, the Berlin, Germany, native has 25 goals and 54 points. His 25 goals rank 14th among Loyola's NCAA Division I career goals leaders.
