Gabe Macey leads NSL Division III boys' soccer All-Stars


Wesley LaBar (Minerva/Newcomb)- The midfielder was a team leader and played a strong game on both sides of the ball for the Mountaineers. LaBar displayed strong footwork and tallied 17 goals and eight assists on the year.

Borja Martinez (Minerva/Newcomb)- Martinez was a solid, consistent defender, according to Winslow. He had a strong left foot and was capable of scoring on direct kicks and corner kicks.

Dan Groshans (Crown Point)- Groshans was a senior midfielder and captain for the Panthers in 2012. He was respected by teammates and the coaching staff alike for his leadership qualities and recorded one goal and six assists this fall.

Jeff Armstrong (Schroon Lake)- Armstrong, a senior for the Wildcats, anchored the midfield attack with controlled passing and physical play. His strength, athleticism, and hustle allowed him to have success at his position.

Bryton Chikukwa (Minerva/Newcomb)- Chikukwa was a solid defender with sideline-to-sideline quickness, ranking him as one of the most talented athletes in Division III as said by Winslow.

Jake Earley (Wells)- Earley is the lone representative from the Indians squad to be honored with a First-Team selection.

Mitchell Beers (Schroon Lake)- “(Beers) is one of those players that you never have to worry about because he’s always in the right position and always makes the right play,” Silvernail said. “His speed and quickness allowed him to cover a lot of ground to track down any mistakes that were made in front of him.”

Michael DuShane (Crown Point)- DuShane was a senior defender and team captain for the 11-4 Panthers this fall. His versatility allowed him to also play sweeper while anchoring the team’s defense.

Joao Silva (Minerva/Newcomb)- Silva garnered 10 goals and added three assists for the Mountaineers this past fall. The striker proved to be a scoring threat from anywhere outside the 18 and played a pivotal role generating offense.
