Levi Houapeu – Men’s Soccer

America East Player of the Week

Houapeu produced his second three-goal game of the season as the host Retrievers (12-3-0, 3-2-0 America East) clinched a spot in the America East playoffs with a 5-1 win over Albany on Saturday at UMBC Soccer Stadium. He became the first Retriever to post multiple hat tricks in a season since Derek McElligott had a pair in 2001 and his seven-point game (3 goals, 1 assist) is the most for a Retriever since McElligott tallied seven points vs. Central Connecticut on Sept. 28, 2001

Also named to the league’s top honor on Sept. 21, Houapeu scored the game-tying goal in the 71st minute at Boston University, and set up Dustin Dzwonkowski for the game winner four minutes later in UMBC’s 2-1 last Wednesday.

Houapeu, who entering the week third in the nation in scoring, has 39 points (14 goals, 11 assists). He posted his first three-goal game vs. Drexel on Sept. 19 and has five goals and three assists (13 points) in five America East games. Houapeu’s 11 assists tie him with John Samarztis (1990) for the fourth-most in a single season at UMBC and are the most since Ty Engram recorded 13 helpers in 1999.
