AMARILLO, TX – It was a weekend of firsts for many Amarillo Bulls Alumni in NCAA action and for several of them it led to multipoint games. Brendan McGuire, Brady Ferguson, and John Rey all got their first NCAA goals in action.
Brendan McGuire notched two goals and an assist for Army, while Brady Ferguson earned one goal and an assist for Robert Morris University in action against Sacred Heart and Niagara, respectively.
McGuire picked up his first NCAA goal this past Friday, but Army dropped a 6-4 decision to Canisius College.

For Canisius Cody Freeman collected two assists, while Geoff Fortman had one.
It was nearly the same story for Ferguson and Rey who picked up his first NCAA goal this past Friday as Robert Morris downed Niagara 5-2 and then he followed that up with an assist as the Colonials won again this time 4-1. John Rey scored on Saturday along with Greg Gibson, who also notched a couple of helpers.
