Mac defender scores 2nd team all-star spot


McMaster Marauder Andrew Pastoric was named a Canadian Interuniversity Sport second-team All-Canadian on Wednesday (Nov. 7) as the men’s soccer award recipients and All-Canadians were announced on the eve of the 2012 championship tournament being hosted by Laval.

An Oakville native, Pastoric was a tower of strength for the Marauders from his central defender position, helping limit opposing teams to 13 goals in 19 games. He also chipped in offensively with two goals this season.

The 2012 major award winners included:

Samuel Georget, a fifth-year midfielder from Laval University, who was named CIS Player of the Year; Alberta defender Niko Sale, was named Rookie of the Year and recipient of the Lou Bilek Award; Mount Allison defender Chris Vizena claimed the Student-Athlete Community Service Award.

The University of New Brunswick’s Miles Pinsent, was honoured as the Coach-of-the-Year.

The 2012 CIS championship, hosted by Laval University, kicks off Thursday and concludes Sunday at 2 p.m. with the gold-medal final.
McMaster will face the host team Laval in the final opening round match on Thursday, with a start time of 6:30 p.m.
