Sam McCrory, University of Toronto
Eligibility: Second Year
Second-year forward Sam McCrory potted a pair of goals last week, including the game-winner last Wednesday as the No. 2 University of Toronto Varsity Blues field hockey team picked up a couple of critical wins over the No. 3 York Lions.
McCrory scored the only goal Toronto would need off a penalty corner in the 11th minute of the week's opening clash. The veteran of 15 international games with the senior national team opened the scoring on Saturday with a league-leading sixth goal of the campaign late in the first quarter.
