Jose Seoane’s two goal game against American International allowed the BR-1 Southern New Hampshire Penmen to improve to 9-0 on the season. They have won every match by a margin of at least two goals and have racked up five shutouts thus far. Seoane has been a vital influence on one of the country’s top scoring offenses and has helped the Penmen average 4 goals per game. He has combined spectacularly along with Kenny Doublette to form one of the best striker duo’s in the country.
Jose “Sito” Seoane joined Southern New Hampshire this season after playing two seasons with San Jacinto College. After graduating from high school in Spain, he traveled across the world to join the Ravens, and he was one of the most prolific scorers in the country, netting 45 goals and 26 assists in only 39 matches.
Seoane earned NJCAA All-American Second Team honors and was named to the All-Region team. This season, Seoane traveled across the country from Texas to New Hampshire, but has continued scoring, and his ten goals are currently tied for 6th best in all of Division 2.
Kenny Doublette is the Haitian-born striker that features alongside Seoane. Earlier this season, he contributed a point in six consecutive matches. He scored a brace in consecutive routs against New Haven and Saint Ansalem and followed it up with an assist against Adelphi, which earned him the Northeast 10 Player of the Week Award.
His 6’2’’ frame provides an excellent target for assist leaders Sofiane Tergou and Brian Grisell. Doublette has already matched his season goal totals from the last two seasons, and it has only taken him nine matches.
One of the keys to Southern New Hampshire’s success has been their experience. Their starting lineup is comprised entirely of junior and senior players that are accustomed to the rigors of the Division 2 schedule. Southern New Hampshire is now beginning a difficult stretch of their season, which will see them tested by BR-32 Merrimack and BR-15 Southern Connecticut State.
These two opponents are the most difficult on the Penmen schedule, and they will have to face both on the road. The Penmen appear to be ready for any challenge, and if they can make it through this stretch, they will be difficult to oust from the HeroSports top spot.
