4/6/16 – Monks Clip Falcons, 15-13

BOX: ... 040916.htm

STANDISH, Maine – Saint Joseph’s College (5-6, 2-1 GNAC) slipped past Albertus Magnus College (3-5, 0-3 GNAC), 15-13, in a Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) men’s lacrosse contest at Westerlea Way Field on Saturday afternoon.
Saint Joseph’s broke up a 7-up halftime score with 7-2 scoring run spanning 21 minutes, as sophomore Luigi Grimaldi (Portland, Maine) scored three goals in a matter of two minutes and 30 seconds and sophomore Cam Boucher (Lewiston, Maine) hit pay dirt to lift the Monks to a 15-9 advantage with 8:53 left in the fourth quarter.
The Falcons made an impressive offensive push in the closing eight minutes as the visitors, aided by a two-minute locked in penalty on the Monks, netted four unanswered goals to cut their deficit down to two (15-13) with the help of three goals from sophomore Brennan Moore (Meriden, Conn.). SJC sophomore goalie Connor Trainor (Franklin, Mass.) came up with a pair of big saves in the closing minutes to preserve the victory.
For the Monks, Trainor finished the contest with nine saves while Albertus Magnus sophomore netminder Jack Kerner (Merrick, N.Y.) posted 10 stops in a losing effort.

· Senior Jake O’Brien (Andover, Mass.) tallied five goals with two assists and seven ground balls

· Grimaldi finished the day with three goals, two assists, and three ground balls

· Sophomore Joe O’Reilly (Suffern, N.Y.) scored twice with a pair of assists and three ground balls

· Sophomore Matt Donnell (Watertown, Mass.) potted a pair with two helpers and two caused turnovers

· Sophomore Brendan Barrett (East Sandwich, Mass.) added two goals and three ground balls

· Freshman Michael Finn (Quincy, Mass.) chipped in with two assists and five ground balls

· Sophomore Liam Skinner (Irving, Texas) chimed in with five caused turnovers and three ground balls

· Sophomore Austin Havu (Buxton, Maine) was 15-30 on face-off attempts and picked up seven ground balls

· Senior Adam Earl (Hamden, Conn.) was a force for the Falcons and recorded three assists, five ground balls, and four caused turnovers

· Sophomore Thomas Gillen (Port Jervis, N.Y.) chipped in with a goal and two assists
Saint Joseph’s held advantages in shots (46-41), ground balls (40-30), turnovers (23-25), and caused turnovers (14-11) while clearing successfully on 19 of 21 attempts and converting three of five man-up chances. Albertus Magnus was 18-23 on clearing bids and was 3-11 in man-up situations.
For the men’s lacrosse program, today’s contest marks the first time the team has played on campus since the Monks suffered a 9-8 defeat at the hands of Emmanuel College in a GNAC Tournament Quarterfinal on April 23rd, 2013.
Saint Joseph’s is among numerous NCAA DIII institutions across the country participating in the annual DIII Week festivities. During halftime of today’s game, the Monks held a brief ceremony to honor Dr. Thomas Hancock, who teaches in the Education Department at Saint Joseph’s. Freshman men’s soccer player James Stevens (Marshfield, Mass.) presented Dr. Hancock with a small gift at midfield in appreciation of his work in helping SJC student-athletes reach their goals, both in and out of the classroom.
With the victory, Saint Joseph’s improves to 3-0 in the history of the series with Albertus Magnus College, a team the Monks defeated by a 13-7 score in New Haven last spring.
Both teams return to action with conference contests on Wednesday, when Saint Josephs’ plays at Lasell College in a 4:00 PM start and Albertus Magnus hosts Anna Maria College in a 7:00 PM start.

No. 6 men's lacrosse's comeback falls short at No. 12 Middlebury

MIDDLEBURY, Vt. -- No. 12 nationally ranked Middlebury tallied four of the game's first five goals and held a 9-3 halftime lead, fending off a comeback attempt from the sixth-ranked Bates men's lacrosse team during a 15-12 NESCAC victory on Youngman Field at Alumni Stadium.

The Panthers (7-4, 5-2 NESCAC) return to action on Wednesday with a 5:00 p.m. game at Springfield. The Bobcats (8-3, 4-3 NESCAC) will next play host to Tufts on April 19 at 7pm.

Senior Jack Allard (Ridgewood, N.J.) led Bates with five goals and one assist, while junior Charlie Fay (Falmouth, Maine) totaled three goals and one assist.

Middlebury was the first to score when Jack Rautiola tallied his sixth goal of the season following a Bates' turnover at the 12:01 mark of the first quarter. Tim Giarrusso doubled the Panther advantage nearly six minutes later on an assist from Jon Broome following another Bobcat turnover.

Allard got Bates on the scoreboard with 2:36 to play in the first quarter on a man-up opportunity.

Middlebury pushed its lead back to three (4-1) after one quarter on Giarrusso's right-handed shot from 12 yards out at 2:04 and a tally by Sean Carroll following a quick restart with 54 seconds left.

In the second period, Bates pulled to within a pair when the visitors won the opening face-off, cycled the ball around the zone and junior Andrew Melvin (Medfield, Mass.) cut around the net for his 13th goal of the spring.

The Panthers responded with four-unanswered goals over a span of 7:24 of action, increasing their lead to 8-2 with 6:25 left before halftime. Carroll scored twice during the run, while Jack Gould and Kyle Soroka provided the other two goals.

Cedric Rhodes put the Panthers in front once again by six, swatting a loose ball out of the air just in front of the crease for his eighth goal of the year, sending the hosts to the break with a 9-3 lead.

The third quarter saw Rhodes score his second of the contest when the Panthers took advantage of a man-up chance. He used a quick-stick shot at 13:54 following a pass nearly the width of the field by Soroka in transition.

Bates outscored the Panthers over the remainder of the quarter. Fay started the spurt with a shot just outside the crease on a loose ball with 13:00 on the clock, while junior Jake Walsh (Baltimore, Md.) ripped a left-handed tally from six yards away 58 seconds later. Allard found the back of the net for his second of the game on a nifty feed from junior Scott Baber (Pound Ridge, N.Y.) with 8:56 left. Riehl stopped the Bobcat run on a quick-stick shot from the right side 1:03 later, giving the Panthers an 11-6 lead.

Allard, the NESCAC's leading goal scorer, recorded three straight tallies for Bates, giving him 33 for the season. The final one came on a shot that found the upper-right corner over the shoulder of Ernst, bringing Bates to within three (14-11) with 1:59 left. Giarrusso added his third of the day and 18th of the season with 48 seconds left, while Fay completed the scoring with 11 ticks remaining on a man-down situation for Bates from 10 yards out for the final 15-12 score.
