KINGS POINT, N.Y. (Sept. 5, 2018) - The Skyline Conference announced its weekly honors on Tuesday and USMMA sophomore midfielder Zach Lysakowski (Reading, Pa.) was named the league's Rookie of the Week after the opening week of action. The accolade comes after his performance in the Mariners' 2-0 season-opening home win over Hartwick on Saturday.
Lysakowski opened the scoring in the sixth minute of the game with a beautiful leaping header off of a free kick that deflected off of the goalkeeper's stretching hands and just inside the right post. It was the sophomore's first career goal in his first collegiate game and it proved to be the game-winner.
The Mariners are back on the pitch tonight when they host non-conference opponent Medgar Evers. Start time is slated for 7:45 p.m. at Brooks Stadium. Live stats and a live video feed of the game will be available with links on the USMMA Men's Soccer Schedule Page.
