Deighton graduates from SRU; scores first Riverhounds point

CHARLESTON, W. Va. - Jeremy Deighton, a Slippery Rock University men's soccer standout from Broadview Heights, Ohio, who graduated earlier this month, has already notched his first professional goal and first professional point in a match last weekend while playing for the Pittsburgh Riverhounds.

Deighton, who plays forward for the Riverhounds, a United Soccer League Second Division team, scored a header in the 69th minute of a 2-1 loss against the Charleston Battery May 15. 

Deighton graduated from SRU with honors after captaining The Rock men's soccer team to its best season in school history. He earned first team All-America honors to accompany Player of the Year accolades in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference and the Atlantic Region.

The Riverhounds have used Deighton in four of its five games this season and he has registered one goal on five shots. The team is currently 0-2-3 in league play.
