Carthage up 2-1 - nice work inside the box - winger cuts across the by-line and serves a perfect ball into the 6 for an easy tap in.

3-1 - great individual effort - 1vs 3 in the box - dribbler keeps possession and finds the back post. Men against boys.

And ONU gets one back - nice cross from the left, on the ground for a sweet one touch inside the far post . 3-2

NCAC Awards

Chris Brown takes COY. 

Brian Schaefer Offensive POY and Evan Lee Defensive POY.  Kenyon's Carmona takes Newcomer of Year, which I might have given to Kenyon's Lowry.

I don't feel nearly as strongly as the Amherst crowd does about NPL not being chosen but at a minimum Amolo not being a co-player of the year with Schaefer is a bit of a snub, especially given that Kenyon won the league and tournament and Amolo scored in both of the critical games with OWU.  Lee is an interesting choice since he often plays up front.

You sometimes see weird results with these awards.  In 2009 OWU only gave up two (own) goals all regular season, and DPOY went to a Kenyon defender - even though OWU scored more goals on Kenyon in a single game (3) than they conceded all year.  (Not saying the guy wasn't deserving, just that it was odd).  I expected Amolo to get OPOY, but that was perhaps at least a relatively close call.  You're right, it seems strange that Lee got DPOY considering he basically played forward for the entire NCAC slate.  Go figure.

Yeah, Schaefer's a great player and certainly he and Amolo had to be the two primary candidates.  A Co-deal I think would have been right on the money.  And I personally would have picked OWU's Barnes for DPOY.  Spent most of the time in midfield but as a defensive midfielder and then has converted seamlessly to CB when asked.

I'd call you a d*&k, but that wouldn't be very nice of me!  Let me know what you are wearing to the match on Sunday so I can throw stuff at you (probably just popcorn and old chewing gum, batteries are for the Hooligans).

I am cheating for Carthage for two reasons, I coached 3 players on the team and they are the underdogs. I am cheering for Loras for two reasons. I coached 1 player on the team and they are in the Iowa conference where my loyalties lie. So, the balance goes to Carthage, but I have some mixed emotions.  PS I like my popcorn buttered. 😉
