Sam Ocel is the sixth player in Brandeis history named an All-American and first since 1996. He was a third-team selection by the NSCAA and a first-team honoree by D3soccer.com. Ocel also earned second-team Scholar All-America honors from the NSCAA, along with classmate Joe Eisenbies.
Sam Ocel's dramatic game-winner came with the clock winding down. It was his 13th goal of the season, nine of which have won the contest. The Judges will meet Williams in the Sweet 16 next Saturday at Amherst.
With Sam Ocel's 10th goal of the campaign coming in the 68th minute, the Brandeis men finish the regular season at 16-2-1, 4-2-1 in the UAA, earning a share of the 2012 conference title. They await Monday's NCAA tournament selection.
