Four Knights Earn All-Region XXI Soccer Honors!
The CCRI Knights men’s soccer team’s season ended with 4-11 overall record but 4-5 record in Region XXIK play. However, they did have four players earn all-region XXI honors they were: sophomore Tri-Captain midfielder Luis Navas (Pawtucket, RI), freshman forward Adam Corey (North Kingstown, RI), freshman defender Adam Couto (Plainfield, CT), and freshman midfielder Justin Kue (West Warwick, RI)
Tri-Captain Navas earns his first All-Region XXI honor. He was one of the team leaders for the Knights this year commanding the midfield on a very talented CCRI squad. Navas had two goals and an assist for five total points. Luis was also a key contributor on defense dropping back times as a defensive mid. Navas helped right the ship as the Knights season started slowly they were able to win four of their last 10 games including four Region XXI victories.
Freshman forward and midfielder Corey was arguably the most talented offensive player on the 2-13 Knights’ squad. Though he had tremendous skill he and could beat defenders by himself he was excellent at sharing the ball in order to create better opportunities for the Knights. Corey was second on the Knights in scoring with 13 total points including three goals and seven assists. He will be looked upon to be a key contributor to the 2014 Knights’ soccer squad.
Freshman midfielder Kue also earns his first All-Region XXI honor. He was a very versatile player for the Knights helping out wherever needed. He was very adept at handling the ball in the middle while offering help both defensively and offensively. Kue had three assist for three total points on the season. He will be another key contributor to the 2014 Knights squad.
Freshman defender Couto was a key part of the Knights defensive unit. He was the last line of defense before Tri-Captain Keeper Rob Gallucci (Coventry, RI) and helped in both shutouts that the Knights had this season. Couto is another key component that will be counted upon in the 2014 season for the Knights’ soccer team.
