St. Croix has been backbone for Mustangs soccer team
When you haven’t given up a goal in almost seven weeks, it’s fair to say that you’re doing very well.
In a span of seven straight games, Port Lambton’s Samantha St. Croix has been a wall for the Western Mustangs women’s soccer team, not allowing a goal.
She extended her shutout streak on Saturday during the Mustangs first playoff game against Laurier, as Western won 1-0.
The last time St. Croix allowed a goal, it was on Sept. 22 versus York, when Western won 3-2. In 12 games, St. Croix has only gave up six goals for the Mustangs and has a 0.52 goals against average this season.
St. Croix has been a strength for the Mustangs in her three years in London, as she led the Mustangs to the provincial OUA championship game in 2021 as a rookie, and to the OUA semis last season.
St. Croix is in her third season with Western and is a graduate of Wallaceburg District Secondary School.
Western (11-1-1) will host an OUA semi-final this Wednesday (Nov. 1) against Queen’s.
