Forward William Stone(Littlehampton, England/Wright State) earned NPSL Midwest Conference East Division 1st Team Honors. Stone scored big goals all season for the Lancers, leading the team with 6, as well as adding 1 assist. The Lancers were undefeated (4-0-1) when Stone found the net.
Goalkeeper William Banahene(Rochester/Buffalo State), Midfielder/Defender Anthony Rozzano(Webster/SUNY Albany), and Midfield/Forward Lukas Fernandes(Churchville/Temple University) earned 2nd Team Honors.
Banahene was an imposing presence between the posts all season as he led the Division with a .71 goals against average, and an 89% save percentage. He had a season high 9 saves in an early season tie vs. FC Buffalo.
Fernandes played a key role in the midfield, getting better as the season progressed. He led the team with 5 assists, being on the other end of a Will Stone goal 3 times. Dangerous from set pieces, he scored the goal of the season in a 3-0 win vs. AFC Cleveland.
Rozzano was perhaps the most versatile player on the team, playing left fullback, defensive midfielder or wherever else he was asked to play. A veteran from last year's River Dogz team, his experience and leadership were a big influence to new players on the team. He also provided 2 assists.
