KINGS POINT, N.Y. (Sept. 18, 2018) - U.S. Merchant Marine Academy sophomore Zach Lysakowski (Reading, Pa.) earned his second Skyline Conference Men's Soccer Rookie of the Week honor of the season and junior David Germain (Cornwall-on-Hudson, N.Y.) landed on the league's weekly honor roll, the conference announced on Monday. The accolades come after the duo's performances in the Mariners' two home victories last week - 2-1 over Centenary on Wednesday and 6-1 over Lehman on Saturday.
Lysakowski found the back of the net three times in the two games, picking up the game-winners in both of the victories. In a flare for the dramatic, his beautiful header tally off a "lob pass to himself" in the Centenary victory came in the 89th minute. He scored twice in the win on Saturday over the Lightning. He now has five goals on the season and four game-winners.
Germain also scored twice in on Saturday in the win over Lehman to bring his season-total up to three tallies.
