With postseason MACtion right around the corner for Men’s Soccer, the Mid-American Conference announced their awards list for this season. Three members of Buffalo’s Men’s Soccer squad were highlighted in this process. Russell Cicerone and David Enstrom received first team All-MAC honors while Nick Forrester received second team All-MAC honors.
Russell Cicerone will not be winning MAC Player of the Year in back-to-back years, but his accomplishments this season are still impressive. The forward lead the conference with in an array of categories: 34 points, 2 points per game, 13 goals, .76 goals per game, 4 game winning goals, 75 shots, and 4.41 shots per game. Although the conference chose Akron’s Adam Najem as this year’s MAC POTY, there’s an argument for Cicerone to hold that moniker.
Of the other Buffalo honorees, David Enstrom was a solid player for Buffalo’s back third that helped the Bulls greatly in their string of shutouts earlier in the season. He also got involved in the offense at certain points—scoring the only goal in UB’s battle in the air with Canisius. Finally, Nick Forrester was another key piece to UB’s defense as he came alive late in conference play to help the Bulls secure a spot in the MAC tournament.
The Bulls return to action tomorrow vs. Bowling Green as the #3 seed in the MAC Tournament. Game time is at 4:00PM.
