Marinelli, Reilly Share MVP Honors In Marmonte League

Senior goalie Mikey Marinelli of Newbury Park and junior attack Brett Reilly of Westlake were named co-Most Valuable Players in the Marmonte League, leading a list of honorees dominated by the top three teams in the league standings — the Westlake Warriors, Thousand Oaks Lancers and Newbury Park Panthers.

Those three teams each had seven players named first- or second-team All-Marmonte League, with Oaks Christian earning three spots and Agoura one.

League champion Westlake (16-2) and third-place Newbury Park (14-5) each placed three players on the first team, in addition to co-MVPs Reilly and Marinelli. Thousand Oaks (14-5) had five players named to the first team.

The 2014 All-Marmonte first team listed 10 underclassmen among 12 selections. All 10 repeated as first-team selections this year.

This year’s first team lists only three underclassmen — Reilly and Newbury Park juniors Chasen Colter and Erich Wuestoff. This year’s second team boasts seven underclassmen.
