McMaster head coach Dino Perri will lead the OUA West team that includes five members of his title-winning squad. Goalkeeper Angelo Cavalluzzo, defenders Garrett McConville and Andrew Pastoric, midfielder Ryan Garnett and forward Mark Reilly will suit up after being named conference all stars in 2012.

Perri guided the Marauders to their third OUA title in four seasons this past season in only his fifth season at the helm.

Reilly was recently named to the team that will represent Canada at the 2013 FISU Summer Games in Kazan, Russia in July, after a season in which he scored a team-leading 11 goals in 13 starts, finishing third among OUA goalscorers.

A leading figure on McMaster’s back line, Pastoric was named a Canadian Interuniversity Sport Second-Team All Canadian at the conclusion of the 2012 season. Defensive partner McConville, meanwhile, was recognized as an OUA West Second-Team All Star.

Garnett, a sophomore midfielder for the Marauders, was named an OUA West First-Team All Star.

The showcase game is slated to kick off at 1 p.m. at the OSA Centre in Vaughan.
