BALTIMORE, Md. - Junior attackman John Glesener and sophomore middie Jimbo Moore both landed Patriot League All-Tournament Team plaudits, announced following Sunday afternoon's championship game at Loyola's Ridley Athletic Complex.
Glesener tied a career-high and led all players with five goals in the second-seeded Black Knights' heartbreaking 12-11 setback in Friday night's semifinal game versus No. 3 Lehigh. The Camillus, N.Y., native came out like gang busters, completing a hat trick over the opening quarter and scored twice more before the half as Army led 8-6 at intermission. Glesener assisted on another second-quarter Army goal. He has 50 points (37G, 13A) on the year and carries a 28-game point scoring streak into next Saturday's regular-season finale at Notre Dame.
Moore assisted on Glesener's first goal of the game and scored Army's last of the night en route to tying his career-high two points. Moore, a native of Lynchburg, Va., own seven points on the year with five goals and a pair of assists. He has played in all 13 games and started each of the last five in Army's midfield.
Top-ranked Loyola defeated defending league champion Lehigh, 16-7, in Sunday afternoon's championship game to earn the conference's automatic NCAA Tournament bid.
Army visits Atlantic Coast Conference champion Notre Dame next Saturday, May 3, at 12 p.m. The game will air live on ESPNU with Mike Corey (play-by-play) and Quint Kessenich (color analyst) on the call.
