JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (November 5, 2008) - After leading the Bucs in numerous offensive categories junior forward Jordan Monty (Mesquite, Texas) and sophomore midfielder Kelly Brinkman (Clearwater, Fla.) were named to the Atlantic Sun All-Conference second team, while teammate and freshman goalkeeper Megan Masch (Virginia Beach, Va.) was announced to the all-freshman team,  Tuesday night by the conference.

 

Monty, who was the named A-Sun Player of the Week Oct. 27th, finished the regular season ranked fourth in shots, third in shots per game, while leading the league in game-winning goals. Her back-to-back game-winners against Stetson and FGCU helped the Bucs clinch a spot in the A-Sun tournament.

 

Despite playing with an injury the last two league matches Brinkman was a vital part of the success the Bucs saw in the regular season. Against Jacksonville Sept. 26th Brinkman posted an assist and fired home the game-winning goal giving the Bucs a critical 2-1, overtime win. Then against USC Upstate, Brinkman fired home both ETSU goals in the Bucs 2-1, victory on October 7th. Overall, the sophomore offensive attacker finished the conference regular season eighth in goals, 10th in shots, while ranking fourth in game-winning goals.

 

In her first season in goal Masch was one of the toughest goalkeepers in the A-Sun. Despite playing with an injury the last three contests, Masch was fourth in the league in saves (83) and saves per game (5.19) while sitting in second among league keepers in shutouts (4). In her first full season in goal Masch posted a 1.45 GAA in 1472:02 minutes of play, leading the Bucs defense with shutouts against Stetson, Belmont, Campbell and UNC Asheville.

 

The Bucs and its three all-conference members will kick-off the A-Sun conference tournament with a 4 p.m., match Wednesday against Jacksonville, in Kennesaw, Ga.
