Fort Hays State ousts NSU


RiverHawks garner 10 All-MIAA selections

The No. 18-ranked Northeastern State men’s soccer team had 10 individuals earn all-conference accolades, the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association announced today.

Leading the charge for NSU was junior defender Eric Crawford, junior midfielder Jordan Schmoker and junior forward Juan Peralta. All three were named to the All-MIAA First Team.

Peralta is fourth in the MIAA in goals scored and is sixth overall in total points (9g-2a=20p), while Schmoker leads the nation in assists and is 10th in the league in total points (2g-13a=17p). Crawford is the captain of a backline that is second in the MIAA in fewest goals allowed (16) in 2013.

Peralta and Crawford were both first-team selections last season, and both were also named All-Americans a year ago. Schmoker was named honorable mention last year.

Honored on the All-MIAA Second Team were junior defenders Terence Smith and Adam Schmoker, sophomore defender Chance Miller, and sophomore forward Joel Mendoza.

Smith, Schmoker and Miller all star on a backline that is currently on pace to break the school record for fewest goals allowed in a season. Schmoker has three goals and an assist this season, while Smith has two goals and two helpers and Miller has one assist. Mendoza is tied for the team lead in points (20), and he leads the entire MIAA in goals and points during conference matches (18).

The RiverHawks also had three student-athletes land All-MIAA Honorable Mention accolades. Those were senior midfielder Edgar Gonzaga, sophomore midfielder Paul Samia and sophomore goalkeeper Eric Shephard.
