3 - Alonso Fragoso Becomes All-Time Leading Scorer in Marian Men's Soccer History
A storied career came to an end as Alonso Fragoso closed out his career with the Marian men's soccer program as the all-time leading scorer.
Fragoso had a monster senior season to close out his career leading all of NCAA Division III with 23 goals and 53 points, while also leading the country with 2.94 points per game. He would earn a pair of NACC weekly awards during the season and went on to be named first team All-NACC, second team All-Region, first team All-Wisconsin and Co-Offensive Player of the Year for the state of Wisconsin. Fragoso had seven multi-goal games and also had six games where he recorded five or more points. He also netted the game-winning goal against Beloit, MacMurray and Rockford in double overtime.
It was on October 18 that Fragoso was able to set the program record for points as he helped lead the Sabres past Wisconsin Lutheran 3-1 at home in a crucial NACC contest. Fragoso had a hand in all three goals of the victory opening the scoring just 2:39 into the game. He then assisted the game-winner at the 51:40 mark of the game before he sealed the victory in the final minute. In the 87th minute, Fragoso was able to dance around a couple defenders and forced a foul in the box to earn a penalty kick. The Cicero, Ill. native went low and to the left post to convert the penalty kick and give him his 119th career point.
Fragoso closed out his career with 119 points in just 53 games played scoring 51 goals, also a program record, with 17 assists. His final year was easily his best season as a Sabre but in his sophomore year he would earn 28 points off of 12 goals and four assists in only nine games. He also eclipsed 20 points as a junior scoring 10 goals with four assists for 24 points in only 13 games.
