Holy Cross Team Highlights
* Goal-tending : Solid in net : Jessica MacDermid / Jamie Crocker

St. Lawrence Laurentians 

John Douglas

 Jordi Slaney


St. Lawrence Team Highlights
* Goal-tending : John Douglas had a good tournament and  was Laurentians MVP

* Defense:  The Laurentians were overall solid in this position. 

Midfield :  Good defensively but weak offensively. I can't say enough of good about
 Rudy Norman . He ranks up with my all time favorite Laurentian, Keith Farrell. 
He has leader-ship, skill, and character both on and off the field, the same as Keith. 

*Offense :   There is no doubt that  the Laurentians lack of goal-scoring killed them.

Team Performance :  Overall`, the team did their job defensively but the team 
lacked overall offense and fitness. The play of young Jordi Slaney improved as 
the tournament progressed. 

Gord's Comments:   The team were very respectable in their first three matches. Losing to the eventual  12th seed New Brunswick in Game 4, was hurtful.  However, the Laurentian supporters displayed they are not only the best fans in all of Canada but they are the best soccer fans in all of North America.
