Dec. 10, 2013
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.
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.
