Sept. 30, 2013
ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Navy (4-3-2, 1-0 PL) will host Howard (0-9-0) in a non-conference men's soccer match Tuesday evening at 7:00 PM at the Glenn Warner Soccer Facility. Additionally, sophomore forward Jamie Dubyoski (Catonsville, Md.) has been received a number of accolades for his play last week.
Dubyoski has been named the NAAA Athlete of the Week, presented by Rolls-Royce, and the Patriot League Brine Offensive Player of the Week. Dubyoski has also been named to the College Soccer News National Team of the Week.
Dubyoski had five points in a pair of Navy wins last week with two game-winners. Dubyoski scored in the 10th minute and added an assist later in the game in a 2-0 win at Virginia Tech. He also scored in the 28th minute in Navy's 1-0 win over Boston University.
Dubyoski ranks second in the Patriot League with his six goals and 13 points. He has tallied game-winning goals in each of the last three games. He has scored a goal in four straight games. He ranks 13th in the NCAA in goals scored and is 20th in total points.
Navy's win over Boston U. was its conference opener and the Mids shut out their third straight opponent for the first time since 2000 when the team shut out seven straight teams.
Senior goalkeeper Gavin Snyder (Severna Park, Md.) improved his record to 3-0 and he has yet to allow a goal in 267 minutes this season with the shutout win over Boston U. Snyder also posted a shutout in Navy's 2-0 win at Virginia Tech last week.
Howard enters Tuesday's contest at 0-9-0 on the season. The Bison have been outscored 22-4 this season. Howard is currently an independent program in men's soccer. Junior Rahman Alarape leads the team with two goals and five points.
Howard leads the all-time series against Navy, 12-11-4, but Navy is 5-1-3 over the last nine games. Navy defeated Howard in 2012, 3-1, and in 2011, 3-0. Derek Vogel (Long Beach, Calif.) scored five points in the win over Howard last fall with two goals and an assist. Joseph Greenspan (Westfield, N.J.) also scored as Navy overcame a 1-0 halftime deficit.
Navy will continue Patriot League play this weekend with a game at 2012 conference champion Lafayette (2-1-6, 0-1 PL) on Saturday at 12 noon. Navy defeated Lafayette last season, 4-2.
