Purple Pipe: Jason Carrelas

Dallas Currow
WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH, THE TOUGH GETS GOING. Jason Carrelas of the Mustangs' men's soccer team has surprising talent in goal, "netting" him the Purple Pipe. Oh crack ourselves up sometimes.

When the Mustangs' men's soccer team got in a bind this past weekend at the Canadian Interuniversity Sport championships in Montreal, Jason Carrelas was there to save the day.

With both goalies -starter Roberto Caballero Jr. and back-up keeper Mark Teliaferri- out of commission due to injuries, Western had to look elsewhere for a goaltender in its bronze medal game against the Montreal Carabins. Head coach Steve Langley tried his best to be prepared for any possible situation, but the turn of events in net was an unexpected one.

Usually a team would turn to its third goalie in a such a situation, but with Ryan Kelly unlisted on the game sheet, the Mustangs' luck was running short. In a pinch, Langley and the Mustangs turned to Carrelas. "We didn't really want to play, but he did it for the team. I have a lot of respect for Jason." Carrelas contributed to the men's eventual fourth place finish with his offense, defense and solid fill-in job in goal. He made some amazing saves and only allowed one goal. For his range of abilities, Carrelas was awarded game MVP and is a deserving recipient of this week's Purple Pipe.
