Men's Soccer Picked to Finish Fifth in AMCC
08/14/2006

GIBSONIA, PA — Frostburg State has been picked to finish fifth in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference this fall according to a vote among the league’s 10 head coaches.

Medaille, the defending league champion, is picked to win the conference while Lake Erie is second and Penn State Behrend is third.

The Bobcats look to rebound after a disappointing 2005 season in which FSU finished 9-10 overall and 6-3 in the AMCC. In the conference quarterfinals, FSU scored the game-winning goal in the 90th minute to down Penn State Behrend, 2-1. In the semifinals, Frostburg State fell to Medaille, 1-0, in double overtime.

Fifth-year head coach Keith Byrnes has led the Bobcats to a 38-34-6 record (19-10-1 AMCC), one AMCC Tournament championship match (2003) and one ECAC Tournament appearance (2003).

Junior midfield Kenny Dotter (Baltimore, Md./Sparrows Point) earned first-team All-AMCC honors last season and returns as the Bobcats leader in goals (5), assists (3) and points (13). Sophomore defender Adam Gracia (Rockville, Md./Wooton) was a second-team all-conference selection after starting all 19 games while classmate Gregg Laskow (Plainsboro, N.J./WWP-North), an honorable-mention all-conference player last fall, returns to the Bobcats after scoring three goals and adding two assists.

Cory Cwiklinski is the Preseason Player of the Year and is expected to lead Medaille to its second-straight title after the Mavericks won their first crown in 2005.

The AMCC, celebrating its tenth anniversary, kicks off conference play Saturday, September 23. The conference championship will be Saturday, November 4 at the highest remaining seed. The winner will receive the AMCC's automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.
