Senior forward Bryan Gaul will begin the season as Bradley’s active career scoring leader and he showed how he earned that title Sunday night by scoring two goals and adding an assist, helping the White squad to a 2-1 victory in the annual Bradley Soccer Red-White Scrimmage Sunday night at Rotary Field at McClallen Park. Newcomer Cecil Jeffrey, a transfer from Wheaton (Mass.) College, teamed with Gaul on all three tallies Sunday night, chipping in a goal and two assists.  Freshman Desmond Campbell also provided a helper on Gaul’s game-winning goal in the 71st minute. “Bryan Gaul has been dominant since last fall and again this spring,” said Bradley head coach Jim DeRose, “and he just showed it again tonight. ”As impressive as Bryan and Cecil were, though, we played 26 players tonight,” DeRose added.  “We have a deep team and I think we can use that to our advantage.  Desmond and Cecil showed we have some new guys who can step in.”
