Penn State Behrend senior defender Andrew Mastovich (Franklin Regional) was named the AMCC Preseason Defensive Player of the Year. He was one of the leaders of a defense that allowed just five goals in conference play last season and posted 10 shutouts. Behrend is the favorite to win the conference after reaching the NCAA Division III Sweet 16 and finishing 16-4-2.

Pitt-Greensburg: Former standouts Matt Bisceglia and Nick Piccirilli will join coach Marc Bucci’s staff this fall.

Bisceglia played goalkeeper at Kiski Area and Robert Morris, and Piccirilli, a Center graduate, was an attacking forward at Seton Hill.

Piccirilli is the SCS United Academy Director for the 8U, 9U and 10U programs. His coaching experience includes the New York Red Bulls Regional Development Schools and Training Programs and the Eastern New York Olympic Development Program. He also has coached Central Valley and Avonworth.

WCCC: In his college debut and his team’s season opener, freshman Ethan Turnbull (Greensburg Salem) had a hat trick, including the winning goal, in a 5-4 overtime win over Allegany (Md.).

Even more significant was the victory snapped a 40-game winless streak for the Wolfpack dating to 2016.

Ohio: Sophomore goalkeeper Sam Wexell (Norwin) made her first collegiate start in net for the Bobcats and made three saves in a 2-1, double-overtime victory over Cleveland State.

Seton Hill: The Griffins’ season-opening plans were changed because of Hurricane Dorian. The Bahama House Classic in Daytona Beach, Fla., was canceled because of the storm. Seton Hill instead will play in the Ferris State tournament this weekend in Big Rapids, Mich.
