Keith Dreyer (Malvern Prep) had three goals and an assist and earned the tournament MVP award Saturday to lead the United States Air Force Academy to a 9-8 win over Fairfield in the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Lacrosse Championship Saturday in Columbus, Ohio.
Falcons’ junior Dreyer accounted for 10 points (4g, 6a) in two tourney games. Dreyer tallied a career best six points (1g, 5a) in a 14-6 win over Ohio State in the semifinal.
The game also featured a brotherly love battle as Fairfield midfielder Eric Warden (two goals) went up against Air Force defenseman Alex Warden. Both are Garnet Valley graduates.
The Falcons earned the Conference’s automatic berth in the NCAA tournament, and will now wait until Sunday evening to find out their tournament game location and opponent.
Air Force (10-5) advances to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1988 after securing its first-ever ECAC Lacrosse Tournament Championship title.
