Daniel Webster Spoils Senior Night for UMF

FARMINGTON, Maine – Nathan Chase rounded out the regular season finale with four goals in the University of Maine at Farmington men’s lacrosse, 17-9, non-conference loss to Daniel Webster College on Senior Day at Prescott Field.

Daniel Webster jumped out to a, 4-0, lead in the first eight minutes before Cameron McAllister (Yarmouth, Maine) was able to get the Beavers on the board.

After surrendering a pair to end the first quarter, UMF rebounded with two second quarter goals by Nathan Chase (Wells, Maine). The first score came to begin the second period with the second one coming midway through the quarter. Casey Wrigley (Oakland, Maine) charged into the Eagles’ defense and passed to his left to Chase, who made the easy score.

The Beavers showed signs of life in the third quarter with back-to-back goals by McAllister and David Walter Grainger III (Lexington, Mass.) to cut the Eagles lead in half, 10-5. With a man-down, Grainger picked up a ground ball and surged towards the goal, then the senior fired a line drive shot into the back of the net.

UMF opened the final period with three unanswered goals by McAllister, Wrigley, and Chase to bring the Beavers within three goals of tying the game.

Despite Chase adding one more for the Beavers, DWC charted four of the final five goals to end the game.

Joseph Maldonado (Fresno, Calif) saved 11 shots in the contest. Sean Zubrod (Augusta, Maine) and Connor Joy (Windham, Maine) led the Beavers with eight ground balls apiece.

UMaine-Farmington closed out the season with one for the record books. McAllister scored 14 goals this season which ranks the junior sixth for most goals in one season. Chase averaged 1.25 goals per game which ranks eighth for one season.

Zubrod rounded out his rookie campaign third on the single-season list with 69 ground balls and ninth with 1.46 caused turnovers per game. Senior Zack Rowland (Fryeburg, Maine) set a new mark with 126 faceoff wins and ranks ninth with 59 ground balls. Maldonado saved 174 shots on the year and only needed eight more to break the single-season record

Men's lacrosse downs Colby 22-10, ends regular season with 5th straight win

LEWISTON, Maine -- The No. 14 nationally ranked Bates College men's lacrosse team shrugged off an 11-day gap since its last game and defeated rival Colby 22-10 on Wednesday at Garcelon Field, to finish the regular season on a five-game winning streak, all against New England Small College Athletic Conference opponents.

It is the most goals Bates has ever scored in a NESCAC game, and the Bobcats' largest-ever margin of victory in a conference game since the NESCAC became a playing conference in 2001.

Bates (9-4, 6-4 NESCAC) finishes the regular season in a tie for fourth place in the NESCAC with Wesleyan (9-6, 6-4). By virtue of the Cardinals' win over Bates on March 7, Wesleyan earns the No. 4 seed in Saturday's NESCAC quarterfinals and will host fifth-seeded Bates in Middletown, Conn., on Saturday at 1pm.

Colby (8-6, 4-6 NESCAC) will be either the sixth, seventh or eighth seed in the NESCAC Championship, and will play at either Amherst, Tufts or Middlebury on Saturday.

Bates senior Jack Strain (Montclair, N.J.) tied his career high with six goals to go with one assist and three ground balls in his final home game. Sophomore Charlie Fay (Falmouth, Maine) scored four goals, including three in the first half, to go with one assist. Junior Jack Allard (Ridgewood, N.J.; 3 goals, 2 assists), sophomore Andrew Melvin (Medfield, Mass; 3,0), sophomore Jake Walsh (Baltimore, Md.; 1,3), senior Conor Henrie (Lexington, Mass.; 2,0), first-year Clarke Jones (Pepper Pike, Ohio; 2,0) and sophomore Kyle Weber (Chagrin Falls, Ohio; 0,2) also contributed multiple points.

Sophomore Sam Francis (Newburyport, Mass.) won 23 of 31 faceoffs for Bates and was credited with 12 ground balls. In goal, junior Joe Faria (Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y.) made 18 saves for Bates, as Colby had a 44-43 edge in shot attempts (Bates led Colby 31-29 in shots on goal).

Derek Youngman led Colby scorers with three goals and an assist. Austin Sayre contributed two goals and one assist, while Sam Wasserman and Mark Philipps added two goals apiece. Tyler Will made nine saves for the Mules.

Colby took leads of 2-0 and 3-1 in the opening 5:15 of the game, with all three goals coming off of Bates turnovers. Sayre scored the game's opening goal after a Bates turnover in its defensive zone two minutes into the game, and Sayre made it 3-1 with a second unassisted tally with 9:45 left in the quarter.

Bates scored three straight in a 65-second span to assume a 4-3 lead. Senior Reed Lewallen (Portland, Ore.) found Walsh on a well-timed pass and lunging shot for the goal. First-year Burke Smith (Wilton, Conn.) found Strain 22 seconds later with a cross-zone pass that Strain finished with a shot while leaping away from the Colby goal. At the 7:38 mark, Allard found a cutting Fay open for Bates' first lead.

Philipps backed down a Bates defender and bullied his way in for a game-tying score with 2:50 to go in the first quarter. But with 37 seconds to go in the period, Fay snuck a low shot past Will for a 5-4 lead.

Colby opened the second quarter with back-to-back goals to retake the lead. Kevin Seiler intercepted a clearing pass by Faria and scored an unassisted tally, and the Mules then converted the game's first extra-man opportunity when Youngman scored from Brendan McNeill with 12:12 to go.

Fay answered again for Bates less than a minute later, maneuvering through the Colby defense for an unassisted tally to tie the game at 6-6. After the Bates defense weathered three consecutive shots by the Mules, the Bobcats cleared and Jones scored his first collegiate goal, for a 7-6 Bates lead that the Bobcats did not relinquish. With 7:38 to go, after a penalty flag had dropped on Colby, Bates senior Evan Chen (Katonah, N.Y.) bounced a shot in while falling down. Bates won the ensuing faceoff with an extra-man opportunity, and Weber, working from behind the Colby goal, found Allard cutting down the middle to make it 9-6. Bates finished the game 4-for-5 on man-up chances.

Youngman cut it to 9-7 before halftime, but the period ended, remarkably, with Colby taking 24 shots to Bates' five, yet getting outscored 4-3 in the period.

The Bobcats scored four unanswered goals in the first five minutes of the third quarter to open up a 13-7 lead. Strain was responsible for three of those scores, including a man-up tally from Walsh with 10:25 to go in the period. Colby made one final push, getting back-to-back goals from Philipps and Youngman at the 6:31 and 6:09 marks, but Strain's fourth goal of the quarter slowed the Mules' momentum and gave Bates a 14-9 lead heading into the fourth quarter.

Henrie scored back-to-back goals to start the fourth, and the Bobcats went on to outscore the Mules 8-1 in the period.

At 6-4, the Bobcats finish with their most conference wins (the league expanded to 11 teams and 10 conference games per team when Hamilton joined as a full member in 2012). It is the first season since 2007 that the Bobcats have defeated both CBB (Colby-Bates-Bowdoin) rivals.

Wednesday's contest marked the second annual Flahive-McDuffee Memorial Game in honor of Derrik Flahive (Colby) and Morgan McDuffee (Bates). Flahive died in a drowning accident in 2011; McDuffee was killed while breaking up a fight in Lewiston in 2002. Colby head coach Jack Sandler '02 played with McDuffee at Bates, under current Bobcat head coach Peter Lasagna.

Men's Lacrosse Falls to Tufts in Season Finale

BRUNSWICK, Maine - The Tufts University men's lacrosse team used a 6-0 run spanning the second and third quarters to pull away from Bowdoin, 15-9, in the final game of the regular season Wednesday evening at Ryan Field.

The sixth-ranked Jumbos improve to 13-2 (8-2 NESCAC) and will be the second seed for the upcoming conference tournament. Bowdoin finishes their year with a record of 3-12 (2-8 NESCAC), missing out on postseason play.

The Tufts combination of Zach Richman and Peter Gill proved too much for Bowdoin on Wednesday as each scored five goals in the victory. Ben Andreycak spaked the Jumbos offense with a goal and four assists. Bowdoin was led by three goals and an assist from senior David Nemirov in the loss.

Tied at 3-3 early in the second quarter, Tufts scored four times in a two-minute span late in the period to take a 7-3 lead at the break. Cole Bailey started the run that included goals from Jake Gillespie, Gill and Richman. Richman and Andreycak opened the third quarter with scores for the visitors, who outscored Bowdoin 5-2 in the third quarter and stretched their lead to as many as nine goals, 14-9, early in the fourth quarter.

The Polar Bears attempted to muster a late rally, scoring four straight times courtesy of Nemirov, Matthew Crowell, Rob Talcott and Shawn Daly to trim the gap to 14-9, but could get no closer over the final five minutes.

Alex Salazar made six saves in net for Tufts, who got a caused turnover and a team-high six ground balls from Cem Kalkavan. Bowdoin's Peter Mumford played the first 59:39 in net, making 17 saves. Senior Connor Laughlin played the final 21 seconds without being tested. Senior Mac Caputi had team highs with three caused turnovers and five ground balls.

Thanks to a 14-of-16 effort from Conor Helfrich, Tufts won 22-of-28 face-offs on the night. Bowdoin went 2-5 with the extra man while Tufts went 1-4.

This season the Bowdoin men's lacrosse team has teamed with America Supporting American by adopting a military unit to embark on a year-long fundraising endeavor. On Wednesday against Tufts, the Polar Bears wore special jerseys that will be sold. If you are interested in supporting the cause please contact mfenkell@bowdoin.edu or visit www.asa-usa.org for more information.

Martin nets OT marker to lift Scots past UNE

WENHAM, Mass. -- Jake Martin recorded his fifth goal of the contest with 1:17 gone in overtime to send Gordon College to an 11-10 victory over the University of New England in the Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) men's lacrosse regular-season finale Wednesday evening (Apr. 22) at the Brigham Athletic Complex.

The Fighting Scots (7-9, 4-4 CCC) move up to secure the No. 5 seed for the upcoming conference championship that begins on Saturday. The Nor'easters (3-5 CCC) conclude their 2015 campaign with an overall ledger of 8-9.

The match was never separated by more than two goals either way, and the deadlock at the end of regulation was the fifth of the night.

UNE led 3-2 after 15 minutes and and then 6-4 heading into halftime. Following two goals for Gordon and two the other way for the Nor'easters in the 3rd quarter (8-6), the Fighting Scots came out in the 4th frame with four unanswered to swing the advantage in their direction. During the second half, Martin accounted for three goals and Michael Utz registered a pair.

With 3:30 to go in the game, Big Blue's Dan Auger got it back to 10-9 on a feed from Tom Luttrell. The Fighting Scots won the ensuing face-off, however once the initial shot was saved, UNE went the other way for an extended possession that featured four saves by Gordon netminder Cody Greenwald. A man-up opportunity kept play in the GC defensive zone, but another stop from Greenwald halted the threat.

Attempting to run out the final 48 seconds, the Nor'easters sent a double-team to the corner and forced a turnover. Coming out of a timeout, then with 15 seconds on the clock, Auger needed only five to slip in front and pocket the tying goal with 0:10 showing.

Gordon's long-distance try at the horn presented little trouble for UNE goalkeeper David Pearson, who made his 10th save.

The extra session started with a lengthy battle for control of the face-off, and the eventual win for the visitors turned quickly into a turnover. The Fighting Scots paused to set their attack and Martin curled out from behind the cage to drop in the winner.

Nico Manganiello and Jordan Heckelmann each added two for the hosts, while Peter Kovacevic had a game-high eight ground balls after going 13-of-22 at the face-off X. Greenwald racked up 21 saves in the contest, as Gordon was out-shot by a 47-36 margin.

Auger totaled four goals and two assists to pace the Nor'easters, and Luttrell chipped in with two goals and two helpers. Andrew Curro contributed a pair of scores and Sean Conger picked up a team-best six ground balls.

COLBY MEN’S LACROSSE READY FOR PLAYOFF OPENER

HADLEY, Mass. - Amherst earned the top seed in the NESCAC Men’s Lacrosse Championship for the first time in program history and will play eighth-seeded Colby College on Saturday at 1 p.m.

Joining the Jeffs as quarterfinal hosts are Tufts, Middlebury and Wesleyan. The highest remaining seed following the quarterfinals will host the semifinals and championship on Saturday, May 2 and Sunday, May 3.

Heading into the final day of play, seven of the eight seeds were up for grabs. Amherst clinched the top seed with a come-from-behind 14-13 victory at Trinity in one of Wednesday’s early games. Tufts locked up the No. 2 seed by defeating Bowdoin, 15-9, in the last game of the day. Middlebury secured the third seed despite losing to Williams, 14-11. The victory allowed the Ephs to gain sole possession of sixth place in the standings. Bates clinched the fifth seed after dispatching Colby, 22-10. The loss moved the Mules into a tie for seventh place with idle Hamilton. However, the Continentals defeated Colby, 12-10, back on March 7 to claim the seventh seed, while the Mules dropped to the eighth seed.

Amherst (14-1, 9-1 NESCAC) started the 2015 campaign by winning its first eight games before suffering its lone loss of the season to Middlebury by the score of 17-11 on March 28. Since then, the Jeffs have won six straight games heading into the postseason. Amherst is balanced at both ends of the field, as it owns the second-ranked scoring offense (13.73) and defense (8.93) in the league. Prior to making the program’s first trip to the conference final last year, the Jeffs had lost seven straight quarterfinal games. Amherst will start its quest for its elusive first conference trophy when it hosts eighth-seeded Colby (8-6, 4-6 NESCAC) on Saturday. The Mules, who are making their sixth quarterfinal appearance in seven years, are looking for the program’s first semifinal berth since 2002. In this year’s regular season contest, Amherst knocked off Colby, 13-9, on April 11. Saturday’s game will be the first NESCAC postseason meeting between the squads.

Second-seeded Tufts (13-2, 8-2 NESCAC) enters the championship with aspirations of winning its sixth consecutive title. The Jumbos have not lost in the conference postseason since 2008 when they lost to Williams, 14-6, in the quarterfinal round. This season, Tufts won 10 straight games to open the year, but have gone 3-2 in its last five games. The Jumbos feature a high-octane offense that averages a league-best 16.13 goals per game. Tufts will square off against seventh-seeded Hamilton (8-7, 4-6 NESCAC), which is making its third overall NESCAC postseason appearance. The Continentals earned bids in 2012 and 2013 as the seventh seed, and are looking for their first win in the conference tournament. Hamilton has lost three straight games heading into the postseason, including a 25-6 loss to Tufts on April 11. The teams have never met in the postseason.

Middlebury (11-4, 7-3 NESCAC) will have the opportunity to avenge its regular season finale loss to Williams (9-5, 5-5 NESCAC) on its home field when the third-seeded Panthers host the sixth-seeded Ephs in the quarterfinals on Saturday. After dropping its season opener, Middlebury won 10 of its next 11 games before faltering down the stretch, losing two of its final three. However, the Panthers will be looking to make their first semifinal appearance since 2011 on their home turf, where they have an unblemished 8-0 record this season. Middlebury owns a league-high seven conference titles, but have not hoisted the trophy since 2007. Williams opened the 2015 season strong by winning its first seven games, but had posted a record of 1-5 since then before Wednesday’s win over Middlebury. Last year, the Ephs reached the semifinals in their first postseason appearance since 2010 before losing to Tufts, 17-6. Williams, the 2008 NESCAC champion, leads the all-time playoff series over the Panthers, 2-0, including a 13-9 victory in the quarterfinals last season.

Wesleyan (9-6, 6-4 NESCAC) and Bates (9-4, 6-4 NESCAC) ended the regular season tied at 6-4 in the conference standings, but the Cardinals defeated the Bobcats, 10-7, on March 7 to own the head-to-head tiebreaker to secure the No. 4 seed and the right to host a quarterfinal game. Wesleyan is hosting its third straight quarterfinal contest, and is making its 13th straight conference postseason appearance. The Cardinals are 11-2 all-time in the opening round, and have reached the semifinals each of the last two seasons. The 2009 NESCAC champion has grown accustom to close games this season, going 4-3 in one-goal decisions with all four wins coming by the score of 9-8. Bates is making its first postseason appearance since 2013, and second in nine years. The Bobcats enter the tournament as the hottest team in the league, having won five straight games, including victories over Tufts and Middlebury. Bates looks to reach the semifinal round for the second time in program history, as it is 1-4 in NESCAC quarterfinal games.

Maine native Haefele finds coaching niche at Bates

Ever since the day Trevar Haefele moved to Greene with his family as a young kid, Bates College and the men's lacrosse team have been his playground.

From the early years of being a ball boy to video taping games as he matured, Haefele grew up with the men's lacrosse program.

After a successful four-year career at Division III powerhouse Nazareth College, Haefele has returned to his old stomping grounds as an assistant coach for the Bobcats under the direction of 15th-year head coach Peter Lasagna, who Haefele's known since he first stepped on the Bates campus.

Western Connecticut Downs Southern Maine 16-9

GORHAM, Maine -- In a must-win game for both sides, the visiting Western Connecticut State University Colonials clinched a berth in next week’s Little East Conference tournament by defeating the University of Southern Maine Huskies 16-9 Saturday afternoon on Senior Day at Hannaford Field.

The win was the Colonials fourth in the last six games after going winless in their first nine outings. The Colonials finished the regular season 4-11 overall and 3-3 in LEC play to secure the fifth seed in the upcoming tournament. The Huskies finished the season 6-7 overall and 1-6 in league play.

Junior Nate Wilson (Norwich, Conn.) led the Colonials offense scoring four goals and dishing out one assist. Seniors Anthony Nejame (Danbury, Conn.) and Nick Foley (Walpole, Mass.) each had two goals and one assist, and junior Jesse Beatty (Redding, Conn./Joel Barlow) posted two goals.

Senior goalie Kevin Seery (East Lyme, Conn.) posted seven saves before giving way to sophomore Patrick Tynan (Somers, Conn.) with less than two minutes to play.

Senior Burleigh Desjardins (Brunswick, Maine) paced the Huskies offensively with three goals. Junior Jaymz McStowe (Plymouth, Mass./Plymouth North) and sophomore Seth Wing (West Gardiner, Maine/Gardiner Area) had two goals apiece.

Rookie goalies John Bossi (Billerica, Mass.) and Zach Bessette (Readfield, Maine/Maranacook) split the goaltending duties for USM. Bossi made three saves in the first half, and Bessette stopped five shots in the second stanza.

Junior Austin Watts (Westbrook, Maine) gave the Huskies an early lead scoring the first goal of the game just 38 seconds into the contest. Beatty tied the game for the Colonials at 11:58 before the scoring went cold. McStowe gave the Huskies their last lead (2-1) at 2:59, but the Colonials closed the quarter with three consecutive goals to take a 4-2 lead. Sophomore Patrick Mulligan (Stratford, Conn./St. Joseph’s) ignited what would be a string of five straight Western goals 40 seconds after the McStowe goal. Wilson tallied his first two goals before the end of the quarter.

Foley and junior Tim Hanlon (Mountain Top, Penn./Crestwood) opened the second quarter with goals 40 seconds apart for Western to expand the lead to 6-2. Wing and McStowe gave the Huskies some momentum with goals at 8:03 and 6:13 respectively. Beatty and junior John Foristall (Danbury, Conn.) swung the momentum back to the Colonials with goals in the final 2:16.

The Colonials effectively put the game away opening the third quarter with three goals in the opening 5:11. Nejame, Wilson and Foley scored to give the visitors an 11-4 lead before Desjardins countered for USM. Sophomore Tyler Jamison (West Gardiner, Maine/Gardiner Area) closed the gap to 11-6, but Wilson scored his fourth goal of the day to make it 12-6 after three quarters.

The teams traded goals in the fourth quarter leaving USM unable to close the gap below six.

Western Connecticut out shot Southern Maine 50-31, and won the battle of the ground balls, 41-31. Senior Tom Dellamarggio (Stratford, Conn./St. Joseph’s) and junior Ryan Caldwell (Stratford, Conn./St. Joseph’s) had five ground balls apiece to lead the Colonials. USM senior Spencer Tuttle (Kennebunk, Maine/Cheverus) led all players scooping up seven ground balls.

Men's lacrosse wins NESCAC quarterfinal at Wesleyan, 14-11

MIDDLETOWN, Conn. -- The No. 14 nationally ranked Bates men's lacrosse team won its sixth game in a row, and reached the semifinal round of the NESCAC Championship tournament for the first time since 2005, with a 14-11 triumph at fourth-seeded Wesleyan University on Saturday.

Bates (10-4), the fifth seed in the tournament, took an early 2-0 lead and never trailed, avenging a 10-7 home loss to Wesleyan on March 7. Bates has reached the 10-victory plateau for the first time since 1987, and the first time in Peter Lasagna's 14 years as head coach.

The Bobcats will face top-seeded Amherst (15-1) on Saturday at noon. That game will be followed by the second semifinal between third-seeded Middlebury (12-4) and second-seeded Tufts (14-2) at 3pm. The championship game takes place at Amherst on Sunday at noon.

Junior Jack Allard (Montclair, N.J.) had four goals and two assists to lead the Bobcat attack, while sophomore Andrew Melvin (Medfield, Mass.) added three goals and an assist. Senior Jack Strain (Montclair, N.J.) and sophomore Kyle Weber (Chagrin Falls, Ohio) added two goals apiece. Allard is up to a career-best 39 goals, the most by a Bobcat since 2002, while Strain has a career-high 36. Allard (53), Strain (45), Melvin (37), sophomore Charlie Fay (Falmouth, Maine; 33) and Weber (31) have all passed the 30-point mark this season.

Bates forced Wesleyan to play catchup throughout the game, but most importantly, pulled away from the game's last tie, 6-6, in the third period by scoring four straight goals to take command, 10-6, in the final minute of the third stanza.

Giving Bates the lead for good with his first goal of the season was sophomore defender Fred Ulbrick (Fairfield, Conn.), who charged up the right side through midfield and ran across the box past a host of Cardinal defenders before depositing the ball in the net from close range. That came with 9:41 left in the frame. Ulbrick also had a team-high two caused turnovers in the game.

At 4:19, Weber scored his second goal of the game and 19th of the year with a roller from long range off a pass from down low by Allard. That came on a man-up situation. Allard made it 9-6 with his low shot from the right at 1:11, after catching a pass from behind the net by Melvin. Strain then capped the 4-0 run with his 36th goal of the campaign and second of the game, converting a Weber pass at 0:47 with a high shot, making it 10-6. That sent Cardinal starting senior goalie Justin Schick, who had five saves, to the bench in favor of sophomore Ted Bergman, who surrendered the final four goals with two saves.

Wesleyan got no closer than three goals the rest of the way, and the lead reached five goals, 13-8, with 4:52 left on Melvin's unassisted marker, completing his hat trick and giving him 19 tallies in 2015. Wesleyan got the final two goals in the last minute of play to shrink the gap to three.

Bates jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first quarter before Wesleyan came back to tie, 2-2. Again, a pair of Bobcat tallies gave the visitors a 4-2 lead. The gap was 6-4 at halftime before Wesleyan got goals from Harry Stanton at 13:54 and Stephen Dodd at 12:11 to draw even at 6-6 early in the third period before the Bobcats went on their decisive run.

Leading Wesleyan with three goals and an assist was senior Matt Prezioso, who paced the team in goals with 34 and points with 51 this year. Stanton added two goals and two assists for the Cardinals.

Wesleyan outshot Bates, 49-32, but the 15 saves by Faria made a big difference; Wesleyan converted on only 42 percent of its shots on goal, while Bates was very efficient, scoring on 14 of 21 shots on net (66.7 percent). Ground balls in the game were even at 32-32 while Bates won 16 of 28 faceoffs, led by sophomore Sam Francis (Newburyport, Mass.), who won 15 of 25.

Wesleyan leads the all-time series against Bates, 22-13, but the teams have split the last 16 meetings, 8-8. This was the first NESCAC postseason game between the Bobcats and Cardinals.
