MORRISVILLE, N.Y. – The North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) office has announced its weekly award winners, naming Morrisville State College’s Sanley Pierre-Louis (Gaithersburg, Md.) the Men’s Soccer Offensive Student-Athlete of the Week and Danny Peckham (Webster, N.Y.) the Men’s Soccer Defensive Student-Athlete of the Week for the week ending October 7.
Both Pierre-Louis and Peckham were instrumental in leading the Mustangs to a 3-0 week, including two huge conference wins over Penn State Berks and previously undefeated Penn State Abington. Morrisville State is now 4-1-1 in NEAC play and 9-3-1 overall.
Pierre-Louis, a senior forward, tallied six points on three goals, opening the week with a goal in a 3-1 nonconference win over Alfred University Tuesday before notching two scores in a 3-0 conference victory over Penn State Abington. Pierre-Louis is now second on the team in scoring with 13 points on six goals and an assist for Morrisville State.
He is the son of Ronald Pierre-Louis and Marie Sonia Jean and is majoring in Technology Management at Morrisville State.
Peckham, a freshman defender, led a Mustang defensive unit that gave up just one goal during their 3-0 week, while also guiding Morrisville to a pair of shutout victories in NEAC play. Peckham also added some offense, scoring what proved to be the game-winning goal in a 3-1 nonconference win over Alfred University and adding another goal that came on a header off a corner kick in a 3-0 conference victory over Penn State Berks Saturday.
