            PLYMOUTH, N.H. - The leading scorer on the Plymouth State University men's soccer team was honored for his outstanding season this week when he was named to the 2008 All-New England Team by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.

            PSU senior Semir Mehmedovic (Concord, N.H./Frankin) was named to the NSCAA/adidas Division III All-New England Fourth Team as voted by the New England coaches.  Semir was also selected last month as a First Team All-Little East Conference player.

            A 5'6" forward, Mehmedovic (right) was one of the leading scorers in the LEC, ranking in the top three with 13 goals and 36 points and leading the league with 10 assists. He had three goals in PSU's LEC quarterfinal win over Western Connecticut and two in the semifinal victory over Southern Maine.  Mehmedovic also moved up on PSU's career scoring lists, and ranks sixth all-time in goals (29), tied for fourth in assists (22) and fifth in points (80).

            Plymouth State finished the season with an 8-9-3 overall record.  The Panthers were the fourth seed in the LEC Tournament but lost 1-0 in the championship game when Rhode Island College scored with four minutes remaining.
