Nov. 11, 2008

EASTON, Pa. - Lafayette men's soccer player Stephen Macurdy (Lumberton, N.J./Rancocas Valley) was named to the All-Patriot League Second Team, the conference announced on Tuesday. The All-League honor is the first of the sophomore's career.

Macurdy had a breakout sophomore season, tallying a team-high six assists to account for one-third of the Leopards' 18 assists this fall. His six assists also places him third in the league, as does his 0.33 assists per game average.

An Economics and Business major, Macurdy has started all 18 games this year, one of only four Lafayette players to do so. He opened the season by scoring his first collegiate goal in Lafayette's season-opening 1-0 upset of then-No. 15 West Virginia. He recorded his first collegiate assist in a 4-1 win over Richmond and had assists in league games against Lehigh, American, Army and Navy.

Macurdy appeared in 10 games as a freshman, including one start, and was named to the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll.

The Leopards earned the No. 4 seed in the Patriot League Tournament and will face No. 1 seed Colgate on Friday at 4 p.m. in Hamilton, N.Y. No. 2 American will square off against No. 3 Holy Cross in the second semifinal match. The championship game will be played on Sunday.
