... Cortland 5th-Yr. 'keeper Pam Monnier & Neumann senior 'keeper Bob Mastrillo


The Division III Primetime Performers have returned to College Soccer 360, with SUNY-Cortland 5th-year goalkeeper Pam Monnier (East Northport, N.Y.) and Neumann senior 'keeper Bob Mastrillo (Tabernacel, N.J.) receiving the respective Primetime Player of the Week awards. Eight others join then on the Primetime Performers honor roll (see below) for the week of Nov. 6-13, as selected by ColllegeSoccer360.com. See below for info. on all 10 honorees, along with action photos (as available; headshots of all nine are located in right sidebar).

... Selection for the Division III CS360 weekly awards is based on any/all of the following "primetime" criteria (i.e. not solely based on raw stats):

• Must have been playing in a game involving a team ranked or receiving votes in that week's NSCAA national coaches poll, or performed at a high level in a game that is key to the team's postseason qualification/participation.

• In general, preference is given based on the quality of the opponent and situational factors involved in the player's accomplishments.

• Exhibited strong leadership and/or involved in clutch performances, such as gamewinning goals, noteworthy comebacks, late scores, momentum-shifting play, all-around performance, team spirit, etc.

• Overcame adversity or extreme circumstances (for the team and/or individual).

• Bonus consideration is given for key performances away from team's home field and/or against a traditional rival.

(SUNY-Cortland ... G ... 5th-Yr.-Sr. ... Northport, NY ... #1)

.... It's rare to see a goalkeeper make five straight saves in a penalty-kick shootout, but such was the performance from regional #6 seed SUNY-Cortland's Pam Monnier as the Red Dragons advanced in their NCAA opener, vs. Eastern (in Cleveland; 0-0 thru 110'); made four saves in regulation/OT before stopping five straight tries in PK shootout that extended to eight rounds (her stops came vs. Allison, Carly Inch, Michelle Brown, Katie Rush and McKenzi Hebster included three with the season on the line); one-upped Eastern's Alysia Goodman, who saved four PKs (plus eight saves in run-of-play); defensed 30 total shots and 16 corner kicks during the weekend, capped by seven-save, 1-0 shutout of regional top seed/host team Case Western (#19 nationally)

Stephanie Vega A 250

(New Paltz/NY ... G ... Jr. ... Oceanside, NY ... #00)

.... Yet another penalty-kick hero, backing up her big save total (11) in regulation/OT before stopping three PKs – as the Hawks advanced at regional #2 seed/national #15-ranked Lynchburg (0-0; 3-2 PKs); weathered onslaught from Lynchburg offense, which racked up 31 total shots and 10 corner kicks; rose to the occasion the next day to lead regionally 6th-seeded Hawks team that edged South-Atlantic Region #3 seed Rowan (2-1; 6 saves; 20 total shots & 9 corner kicks); racked up 15 saves spanning the two games (including the PKs), with the opponents launching 51 total shots and 19 corner kicks; her effort vs. Rohan helped deliver the first NCAA Tournament victory in the history of the New Paltz program; owns 0.45 season goals-against-avg., .912 save pct. and 13 shutouts.

Division II Men ...

Nick Cornell A 250

(Randolph/Lynchburg, VA M ... Jr./So. ...
Front Royal, VA ... #8)

.... Versatile flank midfielder whose bouncing shot to the left side ('50) provided 2-0 lead vs. nation's #3-ranked team Christopher Newport (held up as gamewinner, 2-1); also contributed to strong team-defense effort vs. CNU offense that ranked five nationally in scoring offense: went on to score twice in 3-2 victory over DeSales – on low 45-yd free kick to far-left side (1-0), only 95 seconds into the game, & rebound shot couple minutes later into right side to break 1-1 tie (4'; assist-Jacob Hood); has two years of eligibility remaining after 2011 (returned from collarbone injury that sidelined him for all of 2009 season)

Sergio Gardea A 250

(Texas-Tyler ... G ... Jr. ... El Paso, TX ... #1)

.... Led Patriots to NCAA Sectionals for first time in program history, totaling 12 saves in shutout wins over #20 Ogelthorpe (3-0) and the nation's #5-ranked team, a Trinity squad that had lost only once previously  (2-0 win for UT-T); kept on his toes throughout the weekend, while dealing with 33 total opponents shots (14 by Trinity) and 10 corner kicks; has totaled almost as many shutouts this season (12) as goals allowed (10_  

Nick Holtrop A 250

(Calvin/Grand Rapids, MI ... M ... Yr. ... Hudsonville, MI ... #10)

(Neumann/Aston, PA ... G ... Sr. ... Tabernacle, NJ ... #1)

Saved all five shots he faced, defensed a flurry of activity (26 total shots and 12 corner kicks) and even delivered a rare direct assist from the goalkeeper position (on the game's only goal, in OT) – as Knights shocked #1-ranked and perennial national-title contender Messiah, 1-0 ... took free kick after an offside call on Messiah and connected with Andre Leissing, whose header ended the game in the 97th minute (Neumann's first-ever win in the NCAAs); earlier helped team advance in first round at Salisbury (Md.), doing so on PKs (0-0; 5-4 in six rounds)

Jason Muller A 250

(Hope College/Holland, MI ... M ... Jr. ... Petoskey, MI ... #9)

.... Responsible for another dramatic gamewinning goal in NCAA opening-week action, as his inswinging corner kick from the left flag sailed directly into the upper corner on the far-right side (89:41) – sending Dutchmen on to NCAA rd-of-16 following 2--1 thriller at nation's #8-ranked team Dominican; earlier had helped Hope get past Thomas More (2-1, OT), with that win also coming in the lategoing (David Whitaker '87).
