Five EMass soccer talents have been named as All-American’s by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA), which presented their boys and girls award winners Friday in a press release.

A trio of players from the Hockomock League head the list, including Franklin forward Kristi Kirshe, who scored her 100th career goal during a postseason run that culminated in a Division 1 state title.

The two other Hock players are Maryland-bound Lauren Berman who scored over 40 goals as a senior for Canton and Oliver Ames keeper David MacKinnon who had 14 shutouts and a state-best 0.39 goals against average.

Before the season even started, Needham’s Mac Steeves was a front-runner to earn All-American honors, and he more than backed his application with a Div. 1 state title and a school record 45 points in his final season before heading to Providence.

The final EMass player to make the list is a familiar name as Concord-Carlisle’s Andrea O’Brien earned her second straight All-American honor after finishing her career with over 100 goals. She will play for Boston College next season.

Other Massachusetts players to be named to the All-American teams are forwards Riley Hellstein (Agawam), Siobahn McDonough (Governor’s), Zeiko Lewis (Berkshire School) Bernard Yeboah (Worcester Academy) and midfielder Ryan Reynolds (Springfield Cathedral).
