GANSEVOORT, N.Y. — The 2018 North Eastern Athletic Conference Men's Soccer All-Conference Teams were released on Thursday and Keuka College was well represented.

Named to the first team was Samba Doukhansy and Tom Reynolds. Abdikarim Maalo was named to the second team while seniors Christian Cupello and Noah Ogden received third team honors.

Sophomore Samba Doukhansy was one of the top players in the North Eastern Athletic Conference all season. Doukhansy led the conference with 10 goals scored and 20 total points in NEAC games. Overall on the season, Samba Doukhansy scored 13 goals, leading the Wolves. His 13 goals and 27 total points ranked third in the conference overall. For his career, Doukhansy has scored 20 goals in his two seasons.

Tom Reynolds has been a defensive leader for Keuka College. The senior was named First Team All-North Eastern Athletic Conference for the second straight season. After missing the first give games of the season where Keuka averaged 2.8 goals allowed, Reynolds returned to the lineup and Keuka allowed just 1.3 goals when he was in the lineup. The senior also cracked the scoring column in 2018 as Reynolds scored the first two goals of his career during the campaign.

In his first season at Keuka College, Abdikarim Maalo patrolled the midfield for Keuka College and totaled 15 points. The junior transfer scored five goals on the season and added five assists to be named to the second team.

Rounding out the selections for Keuka College was senior defenders Christian Cupello and Noah Ogden. Cupello had a record year from his defensive position at the offensive end of the field. The senior scored four goals and tied for the team lead with five assists on the season. Cupello had six career points in his first three seasons at Keuka and then totaled 13 during his senior year.

Joining Cupello on the third team was Noah Ogden. It was the third time Odgen was named all-conference following a second team selection in 2015 and third team selection in 2016. The three-year captain started all 19 games for Keuka College this season. Like Reynolds and Cupello, Ogden got involved in the offense for the Wolves during his senior year. Noah Ogden scored a pair of goals and added an assist for Keuka College during the season, both firsts for his career.

The five selections to the all-conference team was the most for the Wolves since the 2015 season. The year for Keuka College ended on Tuesday with a penalty kick loss to SUNY Cobleskill in the NEAC Quarterfinals. The Green and Gold finished the season with an 11-7-1 record.
