Robert Caffrey named 2nd Team ALL Journal News
Steven Reiche and GOnzalo Prando named Honorable Mention Journal News

Coach of the year

Joseph Cipriano, Scarsdale: Cipriano had a lot of talent on his hands and made it all work, guiding the AA Raiders to a 20-3 record, the Conference 2 League B title, their first sectional title since a shared one in 2007, their first outright sectional title in 34 years and their first trip to the state semifinals. Cipriano has 86 wins to show for his six years in charge.

Here are the rest of The Journal News first-team all-stars:


Rob Carreira, Sr., Somers: Carreira isn't the tallest keeper around, but he's instinctive and technically sound. He had a large impact on the Tuskers going 15-4, winning the Conference 1 League B title and reaching the Section 1 Class A final for the second straight year, posting 11 shutouts. Carreira received all-state and all-section recognition and was his league's MVP.


Guillermo DeMestral, Sr., White Plains: DeMestral was a force defensively as a sweeper for the Tigers and also contributed 11 goals and two assists on a team that went to the Section 1 Class AA semifinals. The four-year starter, an all-section selection who also plays for the FC Westchester U-18 premier (reserve) team, has drawn professional and Division I interest.

Mark Kramarchuk, Jr., Fordham Prep: The center back and captain from Mount Vernon is great at tackling the ball away, is good in the air and is a heady player. Kramarchuk, who also plays for the New York Cosmos Academy East team, was one of the big reasons why the Rams had 13 shutouts, went 14-2-3 and took the Class A New York Archdiocesan title. The two-time All-CHSAA pick has already drawn interest from top 20 Division I teams.


Michael Abraham, Sr., Scarsdale: The all-section center midfielder's large impact on the Raiders' run couldn't be measured in individual stats. Joseph Cipriano compared the captain to a great point guard, a playmaker who controlled the ball in the middle and sacrificed his numbers for the good of the team. Abraham, another FC Westchester U-18 academy player, will make his next stop at Division I Columbia.

Gabe Stauber, Sr., John Jay: The 6-12 Indians struggled, but this attacking midfielder did not, scoring 10 goals and assisting on eight others for a team that scored just 30. The four-year starter, who also plays for the FC Westchester U-18 academy team, excelled at controlling the ball and distributing it and worked hard to improve his scoring ability. Stauber, who was also an all-section pick, will play his Division I soccer at Dartmouth.

Korab Syla, Sr., Saunders: Syla scored 29 goals for the 10-6-2 Blue Devils, more than any player on the 75 teams in the coverage area. The all-section striker/center-midfielder, who also plays for FC Westchester's U-18 premier team and has played for a U-21 Red Bulls team, is exceptionally fast and has great dribbling ability. Division I Manhattan has expressed interest.


Ivan Martinez, Jr., Rye Neck: Martinez showed off his vast improvement from last season, finishing second in the area with 28 goals and tying for the area lead in points with 33. The striker, who's also on the FC Westchester U-16 academy team, scored six goals in the Panthers' four sectional games, including one in the Section 1 Class B title-game loss to Bronxville. Besides being named all-state, all-section and Conference 3 League A MVP, he was voted by the Section 1 coaches as the Small School Player of the Year.

Andres Penfold, Sr., Scarsdale: The center forward played a major part in the Raiders' program-best and section-best run to the state semis. He led Scarsdale in goals with 15 -- including both goals in the regional semifinal against Vestal and one in the regional final against Newburgh Free Academy -- and in points with 20. Penfold, also a player for the FC Westchester U-18 academy team, will compete for Division I Monmouth.

Greg Shaheen, Sr., Byram Hills: Shaheen earned all-state and all-section honors and was the Conference 3 League C MVP. He delivered 18 goals and 12 assists and helped the Class A Bobcats to the league title, their fourth sectional title in five years and a berth in the regional final. Along the way, he broke Will Ogden's career goal-scoring record of 64 at Byram Hills and ended up with 68. Shaheen, another member of the FC Westchester U-18 academy team, is mulling a Division III future at Wesleyan, Bates or Dickinson.

Taylor Washington, Sr., Rye Country Day: The team MVP from Somers helped the Wildcats win the Fairchester Athletic Association tournament title twice and reach the final in each of his four years as a starter. The four-time All-FAA pick is known as an unselfish talent. He posted 13 assists to go with 13 goals, and he helped out at times on defense. Washington, who also plays for the FC Westchester U-18 academy team, was recruited by about 80 colleges and has orally committed to Boston University where he is expected to be a defender.
