Haydu Helps Hawks Rout Rider

Standout Boca defender tallies first collegiate goal and assist – helps Monmouth to highest NSCAA ranking ever

TOMS RIVER, NJ (September 21, 2005 ) – Jersey Shore Boca veteran Danny Haydu, a sophomore defender at Monmouth University, tallied his first collegiate goal as well as an assist as the Hawks routed Rider University 5-0 last week in Lawrenceville.

Monmouth, which is currently ranked 9th in this week’s NSCAA Division I Men’s Middle Atlantic Poll, the highest ever in school history, opened the scoring in the 13th minute.

The Hawks’ scored again in the 41st minute as Brent Bauer converted a pass from Haydu giving the Boca standout his first collegiate point.

Monmouth extended the lead to 5-0 in the 57th minute, as Haydu, a 2004 Toms River East graduate, notched his first career goal, heading in a far post feed from senior Kyle Frankoski.

Monmouth out shot the Broncs 20-10 in the match, including a 14-5 advantage in the opening stanza.

Haydu was a member of the Jersey Shore Boca U20 team this past summer that advanced to the semi-finals of the USASA U20 Regional Championship as well as the semi-finals of the MSSL Cup Championship.

“I’m extremely happy for Danny. Like anything in life, he has worked hard at all times and waited for his opportunities. His opportunity came against Rider and I’m positive Coach McCourt took some notice. Danny’s a solid, tough defender with a great passion for the game. I’m positive he will get some more time to show his talents. He has always been a pleasure to coach” mentioned Walt Konopka, a member of the Jersey Shore Boca Board of Directors who coached Haydu throughout his youth career as well as with the Boca U20 team this past summer.

Including Haydu, Jersey Shore Boca has a record fifty-five club standouts who previously played for Boca on either their Men’s, Super Y-League, PDL, Club or Youth teams that are participating in NCAA intercollegiate soccer this fall for their respective institutions.

This is the highest number of Boca players to ever participate in NCAA intercollegiate soccer during the same season in the club’s 27 year history.

Jersey Shore Boca has been a fixture in the soccer community since 1978 and is one of the most respected soccer clubs on the East Coast.

The Club is celebrating their 27-year anniversary in 2005.
