(Morrisville, NY – Nov. 2015) The North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) announced its 2015 Men’s Soccer All-Conference teams Wednesday, naming six from Morrisville State to its first and second teams.
Morrisville State placed five on its first team, including Jamieson McKoy (Bronx, N.Y.), Jeffrey Hado (Tema, Ghana), Danny Peckham (Webster, N.Y.), Alan Peckham (Webster, N.Y.) and Rob Larkin (Clinton, N.Y.).
Chernor Barrie (Bronx, N.Y.) earned second team accolades.
McKoy led Morrisville State in scoring this season, posting 11 goals and adding three assists for 25 points across 17 games at forward.
The sophomore played a key role in the Mustangs success on the pitch as they claimed their second straight regular season NEAC title with a 10-1-1 conference record. His 11 scores were part of a unit that ranked 1st overall in the NEAC in scoring, and goals per game average (3.1 in conference play).
McKoy ranks second in the NEAC in conference goals scored (9) and is 12th in assists (3), second in points (21). Throughout the year he posted four game winners, of which three were in conference play. McKoy ranks 40th in all of Division III in game winning scores and was a second team All-Conference selection in 2014.
Hado was the backbone of the midfield line for the Mustangs, often looked to start and maintain the transition game for Morrisville State throughout the year. Hado contributed three assists to the offensive game on the year, and played a key role in the defensive unit that allowed a mere 0.56 goals against average within conference play, as the Mustangs claimed their second straight regular season title. Hado was a first team All-Conference selection at midfield in 2014.
Peckham led the Morrisville State defensive unit throughout the season, starting in 17 games from his center back position to lead the Mustangs to their second straight regular season championship title.
On the year he contributed to the Mustangs offensive game with two scores and an assist, but within his main role, he was part of a defensive unit that allowed a mere 0.56 goals against average within conference play on just seven goals against and five shut out victories. Morrisville State ranked second overall in NEAC play in goals against average (0.91) and was second in NEAC action with a 0.56 GAA.
Peckham is a four-time first team All-Conference selection at defense, earned NSCAA All-Region and ECAC Mid-Atlantic All-Region accolades in 2014, and was named an NSCAA Second Team All-American a year ago.
A dual threat alongside his brother at the center back position on the defensive line for the Mustangs, Alan Peckham was instrumental in the Mustangs second straight regular season championship title as he contributed on both the offensive and defensive ends of the field. Peckham missed part of the season due to injury, but upon his return to the pitch notched two goals and three assists to contribute to the Mustangs offensive game.
Peckham is a two-time first team All-Conference selection at defense, earned NSCAA All-Region and ECAC Mid-Atlantic All-Region accolades in 2014. He was a second team selection as a freshman.
Larkin had another stellar season for the Mustangs in net, starting 13 games between the pipes and playing 1087 minutes. Across the year, he conceded a mere eight goals, six within conference play, for a 0.68 goals against average in NEAC action.
Larkin ranks 1st in fewest goals allowed (6 NEAC – 8 overall), 1st in goals against average (0.66), 2nd in GAA in NEAC play (0.68), and is fourth in save percentage (.814) on the year. He ranks 32nd in all of Division III in GAA (0.633) on the season.
Larkin posted a best .889 save percentage in the win over Utica, also registering one of his four shut outs on the year. Larkin is a first team All-Conference selection at goalkeeper in 2014, and was named the NEAC Goalkeeper of the Year.
Barrie returned to the Mustangs lineup after missing the season a year ago, and played a key role to the offensive unit that ranked 1st overall in the NEAC in scoring, and goals per game average (3.1 in conference play).
His four goals and four assists (12 points) helped lead Morrisville State to its second straight NEAC regular season title. Barrie ranks 6th in assists in NEAC play, and is 17th in points on the year.
