PSU Men’s Soccer player receives honor from Little East Conference

PLYMOUTH, N.H. - One of the co-captains on the Plymouth State University men's soccer team was recognized by the Little East Conference Monday after leading the Panthers to a pair of overtime victories and sole possession of first place in the LEC.

Senior Bryan Biederman (Holderness, N.H./Plymouth) was named Little East Conference Men's Soccer Defensive Player of the Week. It is the first weekly honor of the season for Biederman, the 2005 LEC Defensive Player of the Year.

A senior defender, Biederman (left) led a strong PSU defensive effort that allowed only one goal in two overtime victories. He anchored a unit that allowed only one goal in 101 minutes Wednesday at Worcester State in a 2-1 overtime win, and blanked 12th-ranked Keene State for all 108 minutes in Saturday's 1-0 double overtime win. PSU is in first place at 3-0-0 in the LEC and has not allowed a goal in its three conference games this season.

PSU, 7-1-1 overall, is back in action Sunday, Oct. 8, with an LEC match-up against Southern Maine (1:00 p.m.)
