Three Hamilton College men's soccer players were honored by the Liberty League on Nov. 6 when the league selected its 2008 end-of-season award winners.
Max Akuamoah-Boateng '09 (Winneba, Ghana/Nottingham HS [N.Y.]) was voted First Team all-league at midfield by the league's coaches. Forward Jesse Arroyave '11 (North Bergen, N.J./Masters School) was placed on the Second Team and midfielder Sam Dwyer '10 (Califon, N.J./Pingry School) was Honorable Mention.
Akuamoah-Boateng is a four-time league all-star. This is the second straight year he has made the First Team. He finished 2008 with two goals and tied for the team lead with three assists for seven points in just nine games played. He missed five games early in the season due to injury.
Arroyave led Hamilton with seven goals and 15 points in 13 games played. He is ranked third in the league in goals per game and fifth in points per game. He was named a co-Offensive Performer of the Week on Oct. 13 and Oct. 20.
Dwyer made honorable mention for the second time in as many seasons with the Continentals. He started all 14 games, scored two goals and assisted on two others.
Hamilton (8-6 overall) posted a winning record for the ninth straight year. The Continentals tied for sixth place in the league standings.
