Four Beavers Earn All-Region Honors
CORVALLIS – Four Oregon State men's soccer players have earned United Soccer Coaches' All-Region honors, the organization announced Tuesday.
Gloire Amanda, Sofiane Djeffal and Joe Hafferty all received First Team honors, while Tyrone Mondi was selected to the Second Team.
Amanda, earned All-Pac-12 First Team honors and is a Semi-Finalist for the MAC Hermann Trophy. The forward leads the nation in both points and goals, with 37 and 15, respectively. He set the Oregon State record for points in a season, and ended his junior campaign tied with Alan Gordon for second on the Beavers' single-season goals list. He is sixth in program history with 25 career goals. Amanda is a three-time Top Drawer Soccer Team of the Week honoree, and was named National Player of the Week on Feb. 16.
Djeffal is a three-time All-Pac-12 First Team selection, and was the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year in 2018. The midfielder tallied six goals and two assists this season, despite missing three matches due to injury. Djeffal currently has 15 career assists, tying him for fifth in Oregon State history.
Hafferty was a stalwart for the Oregon State back-line over the last four seasons. The defender earned his second-straight All-Pac-12 First Team nod, and was part of a Beaver defense that conceded less than a goal per contest on average. Hafferty was selected with the 37th overall pick in January's MLS SuperDraft, and will join the Seattle Sounders organization.
Mondi took All-Pac-12 recognition in his first season in the league, marking his third ever All-Conference honor after receiving All-Sun Belt status twice during his time at Coastal Carolina. Mondi started every match this season, recording five goals and three assists, including a late equalizer to force overtime against Virginia Tech in the NCAA Tournament.
As a team, Oregon State finished the year 9-5 and made the NCAA Tournament for the second time in the last three years. The Beavers are ranked No. 19 in the latest Top Drawer Soccer rankings.
