Emory & Henry Men’s Soccer Places A Pair On All-ODAC Teams

Emory & Henry Men’s Soccer Places A Pair On All-ODAC Teams

FOREST, Va. – After its best league performance since 2001, the Emory & Henry College Men's Soccer Team has been recognized with two players on the All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference Teams, ODAC officials announced Thursday. The teams were voted on by the 12 head coaches in the conference.

Sophomore forward Jordan Couch (Abingdon, Va.) earned All-ODAC Second-Team accolades while freshman forward Tyequis Stallins (Chesapeake, Va.) was tabbed as a third team all-conference player.

It is the first time since the 2008 season that an Emory & Henry player has received ODAC postseason honors. Then-sophomore P.J. Henson scored 13 goals to finish fourth overall in the league for the season and was tabbed to the All-ODAC Second Team.

Couch led the team in all offensive categories including goals (six), assists (four), points (16), shots (39), shots on goal (19) and match-winning goals (two).  The ODAC Men's Soccer Player of the Week for October 12, Couch had a pair of multi-goal matches including two scores in a 3-2 home win against Guilford College on October 7. He also scored two goals and added an assist against the University of Valley Forge (Sept. 11).

Stallins was second on the squad with five goals and three assists for 13 points. He also was the runner-up on the team with 20 shots, including 17 on goal. He added the match-winner against Cairn University (Sept. 12) and converted a penalty kick against Randolph-Macon College (Sept. 26). Stallins was tabbed as the ODAC Men's Soccer Player of the Week on September 14 after two goals against Valley Forge. He became the first player in over six year to earn conference player of the week accolades.

Emory & Henry increased its win total for a second year in a row, notching a 4-10-3 overall record with a pair of wins and two draws against ODAC competition. The eight points earned by the Wasps from conference matches is the most since 2001 when E&H won three matches and tied another. It is also the fourth-best conference result in program history while the Wasps' three-match unbeaten streak in league games was the first of its kind since 1996 and only the fourth in school history.

League champion Washington and Lee University saw Ben Bales named ODAC Player of the Year while the Generals' coach, Mike Singleton, was tabbed as ODAC Coach of the Year. The ODAC Rookie of the Year was Ricky Perrault of Virginia Wesleyan College and Hampden-Sydney College's Robert Kerby was voted as the ODAC/Virginia Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Scholar-Athlete.
