A move to the midfield paid big dividends for Mount St. Mary's senior Andrew Scalley (Archbishop Spalding), who was named the Northeast Conference men's lacrosse Player of the Week for the fifth time this season.
Scalley factored in on six of the Mount's 10 goals in a 10-9 win over first-place Bryant on Saturday. The senior, who typically plays attack, recorded two goals and four assists to push his league-leading point total to 63. Scalley scored a pair of goals in the second quarter and dished out assists on both Mount tallies in the fourth quarter.
Scalley, who has won NEC Player of the Week honors eight times in his career, has 63 points on 28 goals and 35 assists this season. The six-point game against Bryant moved Scalley into second place on the Mount's all-time points list with 217.
