Duncan made 12 stops and allowed just four goals before giving way to fellow keeper Kyle Hubbard to help ASA post its first-ever program win, following a 12-9 win over Columbia University on March 8.

New Westminster midfielder Brandon Goodwin scored two times and added a pair of assists in the historic win.

Two days later, Duncan and Goodwin led the New York school to its first win in the National Junior College Athletic Association, defeating Northern Virginia 15-9.

Duncan stopped 21 shots, while Goodwin had a huge game, tallying a hat trick and assisting on five other markers.

Another B.C. product, Casey Jackson, led all scorers with eight goals and a single helper in the game.

Jackson currently leads the nation in scoring with 24 points, including 18 counters. Goodwin also joined the top five in national junior college scoring with eight goals and eight assists.
