Through games of last weekend, Scully holds a .546 save percentage and is second in the NCAA in goals-against with a 6.69 average.

That marked nine straight wins for Canisius (11-3), which clinched its first regular-season MAAC championship.

Another former South Jefferson player, sophomore Whitley Perry, is eighth among Canisius scorers with 11 points (8 goals-3 assists). Perry has played in 12 games, starting five.

Former General Brown player Cody Kucharski, a freshman, has played five games for the Griffins.
