CO-PLAYERS OF THE YEAR
   James Le, Dallastown: The senior's final stat line (three goals, four assists) might not grab headlines, but it was his all-around ability on the field that netted him a co-player of the year award.

Of those three goals, the biggest may have been against Red Lion, when he blasted a direct kick that forced overtime. Dallastown won in the extra session to continue its undefeated mark in division play. Le was selected to the Pennsylvania Soccer Coaches Association All-State Team.

"James controls the game and is a big factor from anywhere on the field," coach Mitch Groh said.

   Derrick Roy, Spring Grove: During a fantastic season for the senior, in which he scored 17 goals and had six assists, Roy also had a knack for the big moment.

He notched the game-winner in a nonleague match against Juniata in the second overtime. The midfielder also beat New Oxford with a game-winning goal with 18 seconds left in the game. Roy also was selected to the Pennsylvania Soccer Coaches Association All-State Team.
