Middle Township High School graduate Joe Fala has received national recognition for his exploits for the Ramapo College men’s soccer team this fall.
The junior striker has been named a third team All-America selection by the United Soccer Coaches after scoring a program-record 27 goals for the Roadrunners in 2018.
Fala also set new Ramapo marks in single-season points (61) and single-season game-winning goals (11) and tied for second on the team with seven assists.
Fala scored the game-winner to help propel the Roadrunners to their first-ever NCAA Sweet 16 appearance in a 1-0 win over Connecticut College in the second round of the Division III Tournament.
Fala was also named to the United Soccer Coaches NCAA All-South Atlantic Region First Team, NJAC Offensive Player of the Year and NJAC First Team All-Conference.
Fala’s 27 goals were good for second nationally in Division III. Nick West of Messiah College was the leader with 30.
Fala is a 2016 graduate of Middle Township High School.
