MORNING BRIEFING: Phenom Agorsor lost for year

MOST COMMENTED

Freshman phenom Chris Agorsor's first season at Virginia has ended after six games.

Agorsor, the 2008 U.S. Soccer Development Academy U/17-18 Player of the Year, has likely torn both his anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments in his left knee.

The injury Tuesday in the Cavaliers' game against Central Connecticut State when he had to be carried off the field on an ambulance after colliding with a CCSU defender.

Virginia coach George Gelnovatch said Agorsor, who scored five goals, should recover fro the injury that could be out 6-12 months.

"He is a very driven young man and determined," Gelnovatch told the Charlottesville Daily Progress. "Guys like him in my experience seem to do better, quicker. It's obviously bad news that he's out for the season, but the good news is - barring any complications - it should be a recovery that he can make."

GOALIE SERIOUSLY INJURED. A Division I match between New Haven and Merrimack was suspended with 27 minutes remaining in the second half when New Haven keeper James Hilaire was seriously injured after colliding with a Merrimack player.

Hilaire was taken to Boston Medical Center, where he remains in critical condition.
