MANSFIELD, Mass. – Junior Alex Satrustegui (Pamplona, Spain), sophomores Louka Masset (Paris France) and Romain Daniellou (Brest, France), and freshmen Daniel Jones (W. Hartford, Conn.) and Kiko Hernandez (Madrid, Spain) of the Southern New Hampshire University men's soccer team garnered Northeast-10 All-Conference recognition, the conference office announced Thursday.
Satrustegui and Masset were both named to the NE10 All-Conference First Team. Satrustegui registered 34 points on 15 goals and four assists, as he started all 17 matches for the Penmen. He ranked second in the league in both goals and points, as well as fourth in game-winning tallies (4). Satrustegui found the back of the net in 13 different matches, including a season-high five straight from Oct. 7-Oct. 21.
Masset, who was both a Third Team and All-Rookie Team selection a year ago, started 14 of 15 matches he played in, scoring six goals for 12 points. Masset had a flair for the dramatic, as five of his six goals were either game winners or equalizers in the 70th minute or later. He also contributed to a back line that ranked fourth in the league in goals-against average (0.95) and goals allowed (17).
Daniellou found a spot on the Second Team, after joining Masset on both the Third Team and All-Rookie Team last season. In 16 matches, including 15 starts, Daniellou produced 14 points on three goals and a team-best eight assists. Daniellou, who led the league in assists and ranked top 20 in points, notched one game-winning goal and a pair of game-winning helpers.
Daniellou was joined on the Second Team by Jones, who was one of three players – and the only freshman – to start all 17 matches. Jones tallied a goal and two assists for four points, while also helping to anchor the defensive unit. His lone goal served as a game winner at Stonehill College on Sept. 23.
Hernandez received a Third Team nod after starting all 15 matches he suited up in. Despite posting one point on an assist, Hernandez was a huge piece of the offensive puzzle for the Penmen. As a central midfielder, Hernandez was charged with maintaining the tempo of the offense and making sure the ball was moving.
Jones and Hernandez also received All-Rookie Team honors.
