9/22/17


Eiichi Yamaguchi has been named GSAC Player of the Week for the second time since the start of the season.

Yamaguchi is ranked 10th among the top offensive players in the country.

West Windsor, N.J. – For the second time in four weeks, Mercer County Community College (MCCC) men’s soccer midfielder Eiichi Yamaguchi has been named the Garden State Athletic Conference (GSAC) Player of the Week.
 
The freshman from Osaka, Japan, contributed to three Viking wins last week, helping the team move to no. 13 in the latest National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division I men’s soccer poll.

Yamaguchi scored a goal in the 4-0 win over Suffolk on Sept. 10 and another in the 2-1 win over ASA on Sept. 13. He finished the week especially strong, with a hat trick in a 6-0 win over Lackawanna on Sept. 16. In a 2-2 double overtime tie against Monroe on Sep. 20, he came through yet again with a goal and an assist.

With 26 points amassed between goals and assists, Yamaguchi is currently ranked 10th among the top offensive players in the country. The midfielder has scored 11 goals in nine games, tying him for seventh in the goals scored category.

The Vikings are currently 7-1-1. Their next home game is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 30 when they take on Harcum College at 2 p.m. at the MCCC Soccer Stadium, located on the West Windsor Campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.
