Austboe, Barroso, Corke, and Lampkin Honored With Men’s Soccer All-Conference Major Awards

Central Islip, N.Y. – After tying for the East Coast Conference Regular Season Championship, members of the LIU Post Pioneers and NYIT Bears men’s soccer teams took home four out of five top All-Conference awards, as voted on by the league’s coaches. LIU Post forward Eivind Austboe (Stavanger, Norway) was named the Offensive Player of the Year while teammate, Jason Lampkin (Hawardon, North Wales, United Kingdom) earned the Rookie of the Year award. NYIT's major award honorees include Gonzolo Barroso (Madrid, Spain) winning the Defensive Player of the Year award and head coach Carlos Del Cid received Coach of the Year laurels. Molloy's Justin Corke (Valley Stream, N.Y.) rounds out the top award winners as the Goalkeeper of the Year.

For the second consecutive season, Austboe earns the conference's Offensive Player of the Year award after leading the ECC with 15 goals and five game-winning goals on the season. Austboe also added two assists to finish atop the conference leader board with 32 points. Austboe finds his name among the leader board for all of Division II, as well. During the regular season, he ranked in the top 20 in all of Division II in points per game (13th - 2.13), points (18th), goals per game (eighth - 1.0), goals (11th), and game-winning goals (11th).

Austboe wasn't alone when it came to getting the Pioneers on the scoreboard this season, as fellow forward, Lampkin, takes home the conference's Rookie of the Year honor. In 14 games, Lampkin found the back of the net four times and also dished off four assists to compile 12 points, finishing in the top 20 in the conference in all three categories.

Barroso was named the Defensive Player of the Year after helping anchor the stingy NYIT defense. Barroso started all 15 games for a Bears back line that allowed a conference-low 15 goals and 1.01 goals against average. He also helped NYIT shut out five opponents on the season.

Corke captures the Goalkeeper of the Year award after posting an 5-4-1 record and an ECC-best three shutouts in front of the net for the Lions in conference play. Corke also finished second in the ECC and ranked 24th in all of Division II with 79 saves.

Del Cid was named Coach of the Year after leading the Bears to an 8-1-1 mark, earning a share of the conference's Regular Season Championship for the first time since 2002. Under his guidance, NYIT also finished the regular season with a 12-2-1 overall mark and spent three weeks ranked in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) Division II Top 25 poll.

Austboe, Barroso, and Corke are joined on the All-Conference First Team by: Felix Angerer (F, District of Columbia), Alex Barbosa (F, NYIT), Per Forgaard (M, LIU Post), Javier Gallardo (M, NYIT), Jose Herrera (M, Dowling), Ivan Rico (M, NYIT), Guillermo Fuentes (B, NYIT), and Zachious Ogoo (B, Dowling).
