BMCC Tops 2018 CUNYAC Men’s Soccer Preseason Coaches’ Poll
FLUSHING, N.Y. (Aug. 23, 2018) - Fresh off winning its second-consecutive league title last season, Borough of Manhattan Community College was selected as the unanimous favorite by the conference's four coaches in the 2018 CUNYAC Community College Preseason Men's Soccer Poll, released Thursday.
The Panthers, who are listed at No. 10 in the NJCAA Division III preseason national rankings, earned 16 points and all four first-place votes. Queensborough (10 points) was picked to finish second in the balloting, after last year's runner-up finish in the CUNYAC final.
Bronx, led by CUNYAC Preseason Player of the Year Mohammed Jagne, followed in third with 8 points, and Kingsborough (6 points) rounded out the voting.
BMCC's top spot in the poll was bolstered by the duo of reigning CUNYAC Player of the Year Brando Guzman and Rookie of the Year Jahvaughnie Johnson.
In 2017, Guzman finished as the league's third-leading scorer, tallying 12 goals and eight assists for 32 points. He recorded multiple points in nine of the 11 contests he appeared in, four of which were multi-goal performances.
Meanwhile, Johnson led the CUNYAC in scoring in his debut campaign, amassing 38 points (16 G, 6 A). He found the back of the net in all but three matches for the Panthers last season and scored three game-winners in the process.
BMCC and Queensborough both reached the semifinals of the NJCAA Region XV Tournament and lost their respective contests. The Panthers tied Suffolk, 2-2, and failed to advance on penalty kicks (5-3), while the Tigers dropped a close 3-2 decision at the hands of Nassau.
For Bronx, Jagne was the driving force behind the Broncos' offense, posting eight goals and three assists for 19 points. He netted multiple goals against Westchester and Kingsborough, and had at least a point in six of the team's 11 games. Jagne was named a CUNYAC and NJCAA Region XV All-Star for his efforts.
The 2018 CUNYAC Community College Men's Soccer Championship will be held on Monday, Oct. 15 at 7 p.m. at the Metropolitan Oval in Maspeth.
