WORCESTER, Mass. - Sophomore Marsalis Beckford (Brantford, Ontario) has been named the Holiday Inn Express Crusader of the Week, for competition from October 10-16. Beckford had a hand in all four of Holy Cross' goals in its only game last week, a 4-1 victory over American.

In the first half of the win over the Eagles, Beckford recorded a goal and two assists to lead the Crusaders to a 3-0 lead at the break. He scored the second goal of the day when he headed in a pass from freshman Andreas Andrews, and assisted on a pair of scores by junior Josh Trott (Glen Cove, N.Y.). After American cut the lead to 3-1 in the second half, Beckford scored his second goal of the day to conclude the scoring.

Through 12 games played this season, Beckford ranks second on the team in scoring with 13 points on five goals and three assists. Over the course of his Holy Cross career, he has seven goals and four assists for 18 points.

Holy Cross (6-6 overall, 1-3 Patriot League) returns to action this Saturday, Oct. 22, when it travels to Army for a 1:00 p.m. game.
