Cardinal Men's Soccer Trio Honored by ECAC


CENTERVILLE, Mass. (Jan. 7, 2010) -- For the second straight season, the Plattsburgh State men's soccer team produced three players on the all-region team by the Eastern College Athletic Conference. Seniors John LoGuirato, Bart Misiak and Chris Taylor were named to the All-ECAC Upstate/Metro Team recently.
 
Upstate and Metro includes nine conferences: State University of New York Athletic, Liberty League, University Athletic Association, Empire 8, Landmark, New Jersey Athletic, Middle Atlantic, City University of New York Athletic and Skyline.

Taylor, a center midfielder from Liverpool, England (Cardinal Heenan), led Plattsburgh in scoring with 21 points on four goals and a SUNYAC-leading 13 assists. He was second in the league in total points and ranked sixth in the nation in total assists. Taylor, who is a two-time all-region honoree, finished his four-year career as the Cardinals all-time leader with 38 assists.

A product of Ronkonkoma Sachem North High School, LoGuirato (Holbrook, N.Y.) helped a Cardinal defense that ranked first in SUNYAC with 12 shutouts and posted a 0.73 goals-against average. He is a four-year all-region player who contributed two goals and five points this season.

Misiak, of Mississauga, Ontario (St. Martin's Secondary), last month made NSCAA All-Region for the fourth consecutive season after battling through injuries in 2010 that cost him five games played and a third-straight bid for All-America honors. But he still managed to record career highs of two goals, two assists and six points while anchoring a formidable Cardinal back line.

In 2009, the same trio made Cardinal history by earning ECAC all-star honors for the first time in the program's history.
