FLUSHING, N.Y. (Nov. 6, 2018) - The East Coast Conference deemed four members of the Queens College men's soccer team as All-Conference recipients in addition to Michael Bolvin being named ECC Goalkeeper of the Year and an All-ECC First Team honoree. Andras Breuer was named an All-ECC First Team midfielder while Romario Hulea, Kevin Quituizaca and David Ramirez each claimed Third-Team All-Conference honors in a release from the conference office on Monday (Nov. 5).
The five honorees are the most for the Queens College men's soccer team since the 2015 season when Aitor Gurruchaga was named ECC Defensive Player of the Year and a first team honoree.
Breuer becomes a three-time All-ECC selection with the accolade, yet the 2018 award is his first time appearing on the conference's First Team after spending the last two years on the All-ECC Second Team. The senior from Hungary capped off a stellar career with seven goals this season, including a perfect 5-for-5 from the penalty spot. The captain of the midfield also sported a .212 shots-on-goal percentage.
Hulea made an impact in his first season with the Knights, scoring six goals and totaling 14 points with two game-winning tallies. The junior from Sweden recorded two-goal performances with game-winning tallies in contests against LIU Post and NYIT over the course of the season; Hulea was also named ECC Player of the Week once and received an ECC Honor Roll distinction one time as well.
Quituizaca also shined in his first season with the Knights, starting every contest as an attacking midfielder. His speed did not show up on the stat sheet, yet it was the main reason the Knights had golden opportunities for goals in the majority of their contests. Quituizaca scored three goals and added five assists, with his best game being a six-point performance (two goals, two assists) in the team's 7-0 triumph over Concordia (N.Y.) on Oct. 10.
Ramirez rounds out the All-Conference honors by capping his Queens College career as the captain of one of the league's top defenses. The Lawrence native started 12 games and was part of a back-line that limited opposing offenses to just 1.13 goals per game over the 17-game season.
