Spartans Land Four All-Region Honorees
YORK, PA – The York College men’s soccer squad
received outstanding new late last week as four Spartans were named
to the NSCAA All-South Region squad. Jon Ports (Baltimore,
Md./McDonogh), Kemal Nuspahic (East Petersburg,
Pa./Warwick), Adam Good (Elizabethtown,
Pa./Elizabethtown Area), and Lucas Emil
(Parsippany, N.J./Morris Catholic) were each chosen to
represent the Green and White on the regional team.
Ports was named to the first-team for the third time in his three-year Spartan career. As a senior in 2009, Ports led the Green and White with 23 points on seven goals and nine assists despite being the focus of opponents’ defensive game plans throughout the season. He leaves the Spartan program after scoring 33 goals, including 12 game-winners, and distributing 35 assists tying him for first all-time in program history.
Nuspahic makes his second appearance on the All-South Region first-team in just his sophomore campaign. The talented forward posted eight goals and six assists for a total of 22 points throughout the season. Nuspahic added a dynamic and confident phase to the Spartan attack as he was a main reason why the Green and White scored 47 more goals than their foes in 2009.
Good lands on the NSCAA regional first-team for the first time in his career. The junior center back provided the Spartans with a tough and intelligent presence in the back in just his first season as a full-time starter at the position. York only surrendered 12 scores all season long, registering a 0.52 goals against average, with Good being a key cog in that defensive effort.
Emil receives his second all-region accolade landing on the third-team in 2009. One of the Spartans most technically gifted players, Emil scored on a trio of occasions while recording seven helpers. An exceptionally dangerous asset on set pieces, Emil’s ability to strike free kicks brought an added dimension to York’s potent attack.
These four most recent additions to the all-region team, increases York’s number of regional honorees to 32 since 1991. It also marks the fifth year in a row that the Green and White have had at least four players chosen to the all-region squad.
