Westport's Mills named collegiate soccer all-conference


Massachusetts Maritime men’s soccer standout Asa Mills has earned a spot on the 2013 Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference all-conference team.

Mills, a senior back from Westport and a graduate of Bishop Stang High School, earned his second straight first team all-MASCAC selection. The Buccaneer tri-captain shares the team scoring lead with four goals and an assist for nine points, including a golden goal game-winner back on October 19 in a 1-0 overtime triumph at rival Bridgewater State.  In 56 career matches (52 starts), Mills has netted six goals and 13 total points while anchoring a backfield that has been one of the stingiest defensive units in the region.

The Buccaneers, who are 8-8-2 overall after posting a 3-3-1 MASCAC slate, captured the program’s first post-season triumph last week with a 1-0 victory over Salem State in the conference quarterfinals. They were to visit top-seeded Worcester State on Friday evening.
