O'Neill, D'Agostino named to national team

LEXINGTON – Postseason honors continue to roll in for the Kentucky men's soccer team as Riley O'Neill and Michael D'Agostino have each earned national recognition from Top Drawer Soccer for their stellar 2006 seasons.

The website has named the pair to its National Team of the Year with O'Neill garnering first-team honors and D'Agostino being named to the fifth team.

O'Neill, who was also named first-team All-Conference USA and first-team All-Region, set a school record with 17 goals, including seven game winners. He led UK to a second-place finish in C-USA and a No. 13 national ranking at the end of the regular season.

For his career, O'Neill owns the school record for game-winning goals and shots while ranking in the top five in points, goals and assists.

D'Agostino joined O'Neill on the All-Conference USA first team after being one of just six players in the league with at least six goals and six assists. He wrapped up his three-year UK career ranked fourth on the school career assist list with 14. He has been training with professional clubs overseas and preparing to compete with the Canadian U-20 National Team since the season ended.

O'Neill and D'Agostino led the Wildcats to a 14-5-3 mark on the season, the second most wins in school history, as well as a school-record 10-1 home mark.
