First Star- Keagan Croley- Western University
Freshmen Longstick Midfielder Keagan Croley was a dominant force on both ends of the field in a huge Western Mustangs 11-7 victory over division rival Guelph. The London,ON native found the back of the net twice but it wasn’t just the quantity of goals for the Mustangs’ starting LSM that was impressive, it was the timeliness that stood out most. The first marker was a bar down rip to close out the half that helped shift momentum towards Western, while the second goal was the eventual game winner. On the defensive side of the ball, Croley held midfield stand out Brett Ulbikas to just one goal while he was on the field. Ulbikas tallied his second tally while Croley was on the bench.
