SEC champs collect conference accolades

Trojans go 8-0 en route to SEC title


 


The Fairfield boys soccer team swept through the Southeast Conference on their way to a 13-6 overall record and an appearance in the regional final where they fell to long-time rival Pella 2-1 May 26.


With the release of the SEC awards, many Trojans found their names listed thanks to hard work, dedication and statistical dominance of their conference opponents.


Four seniors and a sophomore were named to the first team and Chaysten Titus was selected as the Player of the Year.


Seven upperclassmen were also recognized for their work in the classroom.

Player of the Year/All Conference


Chaysten Titus, Sr.


The Southeast Conference?s top player scored 22 goals, second in the league by just one score to teammate and fellow graduate Shawn Spurrier.


Titus also had 14 assists, which led the SEC, giving him the most total points with 58. The senior scored three times on penalty kicks and found the back of the net 65-percent of the 34 times he shot it overall.


 


All Conference


Jordan Guzimane Sr.


The senior leader who started all 19 games scored three goals and had three assists, totaling nine points as the field general for the Trojans.


 


Adrian Restrepo So.


The sophomore they call ?Amigo? had nine assists and a goal for the Trojans while starting 15 games for Fairfield, totaling 11 points on the season.


 


Shawn Spurrier Sr.


The recent FHS grad led the SEC in goals with 23 even though he missed four games due to injury and only started seven of the 15 games he played in.


Spurrier also had 11 assists, giving him 57 total points, just one behind teammate/Player of the year Chaysten Titus.


Scoring 23 times on 35 shots-on-goal gave him a 66-percent percentage, best in the conference for anyone with more than two goals.


 


Kolten Webber Sr.


Empty stat lines are why Webber was a unanimous choice for anybody that saw or played against the friendly giant.


Kolten beatboxes on the side and dreams of Nashville success with his sister, but on the pitch he is a hard-hitting assassin targeting anyone in his zone.


Known for his zone clearing headers, Webber was a major reason the Trojans only allowed 1.9 goals per contest while scoring 4.8 times per game.


 


Honorable Mention


Leone Gichure So.


The camera-loving forward found the back of the net nine times and assisted on six other scores, but Gichure just missed on another half dozen goals easily.


The next two years he will be expected to pair with Kapijimpanga to continue to provide the Trojans with offensive options.


 


Xavier Kapijimpanga Fr.


The soon-to-be sophomore scored 16 goals in 19 games and also assisted on seven additional scores, giving him 39 points which was third in the SEC.
