Bobby Stockton scores twice in North-South All-Star Game

JU graduating midfielder Bobby Stockton scored two goals as a reserve for the South squad in the 67th annual United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association/Lax World Division I/II North-South Senior All-Star Game at Goucher College in Towson, Md. on Friday night.

Stockton netted two unassisted goals on four shots to help the South post a 15-11 victory. The middie was one of just three players on his team to post a multi-goal game in front of an announced crowd of 340.

Stockton was one of just 36 selections for the South squad. The all-star teams were comprised of the some of the best seniors in all of Divisions I and II nationally. The all-star competition began in 1940 when Baltimore hosted the inaugural contest.

Stockton scored once in the opening half and added an insurance marker to the put the South ahead, 9-5, with 7:31 left in the third quarter. He was the second JU player in history to make the squad after goalie Brad Hester was selected in 2010.

In his only season at JU, Stockton made an immediate impact by posting 20 goals and two assists despite starting only five of 15 games. The Ponte Vedra, Fla. native was named to the all-Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference second-team after a breakout season, finishing just one goal behind TJ Kenary for the team lead en route to recording a JU-high 86 shots.
