NEW WILMINGTON, Pa. - The Presidents' Athletic Conference (PAC) men's soccer coaches voted two Westminster College players to the 2012 All-PAC Men's Soccer Teams and two additional Titans earned honorable mentions.
Senior midfielder Josh Cantella (Freedom, Pa./Freedom) earned first-team all-PAC honors, while junior forward David Osae (Bedford, Tex./Lawrence D. Bell) was tabbed on the second-team.
Cantella, a three-year starter, led the team and was tied for sixth in the PAC with a career-high seven goals. His 17 points tied for first on the team and ninth in the conference. This was Cantella's first conference honor of his career.
Osae, a three-year starter, earned his third PAC honor of his career as he was selected on the second-team in 2010 and on the honorable mention team in 2011. Osae's team-leading three game-winners tied third in the conference, while his 10 points stood third on the team.
Titans earning honorable mentions included freshmen Ethan McCarthy (New Castle, Pa./Neshannock) and Stephen McDaniel (Jamestown, N.C./Southwest Guilford). McCarthy tied for first on the team and was ninth in the PAC with 17 points, while McDaniel ranked fourth on the team with 12 points.
Westminster posted an 11-6-2 overall record in 2012 and a fourth-place PAC record of 5-2-1. Westminster's 11 wins were the most in a season since 2008 when the Titans won 17 games along with a PAC Championship.
