KANSAS CITY, Mo. – For the second consecutive year, senior Jon Roberts (Whitehouse Station, N.J./Immaculata-Somerville) of the University of Scranton men's soccer team earned United Soccer Coaches All-Mid-Atlantic Region honors as announced by the organization on Monday afternoon.

Roberts was a Second Team honoree this fall after earning Third Team accolades in 2018.

An All-Landmark Conference Second Team selection this fall, Roberts led the Royals with seven goals and 16 points while also adding two helpers on the year. The Whitehouse Station, N.J., native was one of seven players from the Landmark Conference to earn All-Region honors.

Roberts scored a pair of goals in a 4-0 win over Marywood on Sept. 4 and tallied the game-winning goal in a 2-1 win over Misericordia on Sept. 10. The senior added a goal and an assist in a Landmark Conference victory at Goucher on Oct. 5 and scored key goals in other conference wins over Drew and Juniata.

Scranton went 11-5-2 overall (6-1 Landmark) on the year and went unbeaten in their final six matches of the regular season to clinch the No. 2 seed in the Landmark Conference tournament.

Roberts finished his career in a Royals uniform with 48 points on 16 goals and 16 assists in 68 career games (64 starts).
