Erie, Pa. ...
Senior Kirk Gibson (Myersville, Md./Middletown) was named the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference Men's Soccer Athlete of the Week after scoring a goal and assisting on the game-winner in FSU's 2-1 win over Bethany (W.Va.) in the first round of the NCAA Tournament last Wednesday.
Gibson, who increased his school record for points in a season to 52, gave the Bobcats a 1-0 halftime lead with a goal in the 33rd minute, and fed fellow senior Graig Patti (Center Moriches, N.Y./Center Moriches) for what proved to be the game-winner in the 59th minute. Bethany scored its goal with 1:32 remaining.
The Bobcats, making their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1983, fell to Washington & Lee in the region semifinals on Saturday and finished the season with a 16-5 overall record.
