Stevenson Stays Hot With Win Over St. Mary’s

Posted on 04 April 2012 by WNST Staff

OWINGS MILLS, Md. – In just his second game back from injury, Stevenson men’s lacrosse senior Justin Lea (Elkridge, Md./Mount Saint Joseph) scored a career-high four goals while the defense held its opponent to five goals or less for eighth time this season in a 14-5 victory Wednesday at Mustang Stadium.

The win was the fifth-straight for Stevenson (10-2, 5-0 CAC) who won its 17th consecutive CAC contest dating back to Apr. 7, 2010. It was also the seventh in as many games at home for the Mustangs this season and moved them into sole possession of first place in the CAC standings, one game ahead of rival Salisbury.

In two games since returning from a broken hand, Lea has totaled six goals and seven points versus Hood and St. Mary’s (Md.). He scored three of the Mustangs’ first seven goals, netting his third with 10:03 remaining in the second quarter to give Stevenson a 7-2 lead.

Freshman Stephen Banick (Charlotte, N.C./Charlotte Catholic) scored the first of his two goals just eight seconds later as the Mustangs
led by six before taking an 8-3 advantage into halftime.

Stevenson held a 32-7 edge in shots at the half and a 53-22 margin for the game.

Senior Nick Rossi (Lutherville, Md./Towson) scored the first of back-to-back goals only 18 seconds into the third quarter with a man
advantage that jump started a second half in which Stevenson outscored the Seahawks 6-2, including 4-1 in the third quarter.

Sophomore and reigning CAC Player of the Week Chris Dashiell (Salisbury, Md./Parkside) picked up the second of his three assists on
the goal by Rossi as he now has a team-high 20 assists this season. During the team’s five-game win streak, Dashiell has totaled 22 points and 15 assists.

A total of 11 different players scored for the Mustangs, including freshman Sam Wyatt (Brentwood, Tenn./Brentwood) who netted his first career goal to start the second quarter.

Defensively, junior Kyle Holechek (Reisterstown, Md./Loyola Blakefield) totaled six ground balls and three caused turnovers while
juniors Kyle Fendlay (Westminster, Md./Winters Mill) and Parker Bratton (Baltimore, Md./McDonogh) each had three ground balls and two caused turnovers.

Senior Ian Bolland (Mountain Lakes, N.J./Mountain Lakes) and freshman Kevin Cain (Rocky Point, N.Y./Rocky Point) each had four saves.

Stewart D’Ambrogi had a goal and an assist for the Seahawks (7-4, 4-1 CAC) while Patrick Mull finished with two assists. Stu Wheeler made 19 saves.

Stevenson hosts No. 8 Denison on Saturday at Mustang Stadium. Game time is scheduled for 3:30 p.m.

I wish I could tell you I enjoyed The Moody Blues. Sadly I do not. But here’s this because there’s not much going on this week…

Now here’s Snow Patrol. Look, if Paul McCartney was playing this week I’d post something of his…

I think I posted the studio version of “Little Talks” by Of Monsters and Men last week. But I’m posting them again this week because THEY’RE REALLY FREAKING GOOD…

We’ll probably hit Tilted Kilt before then.

But honestly, if you don’t go see this movie you’re just the worst person of all time…

Stevenson Defense Suffocates Hood College In Win

Posted on 01 April 2012 by WNST Staff

FREDERICK, Md.—The Hood College men’s lacrosse team (3-9, 1-3 CAC) held the No. 7 ranked Stevenson University (9-2, 4-0 CAC) to 13 goals but it was not enough to take down the top 10 Mustangs. The 13 goals given up were the fewest Stevenson has scored against Hood in the series between the two schools.

Hood’s defense played extremely hard all day with constant harassment being put on the Stevenson attackers. Junior defender Doug Brisbane played a nice game picking up six groundballs and causing four turnovers. Sophomore Mark Filuta also played a stellar game on the defensive end scooping a groundball and causing two Mustang turnovers.

Senior Cory Roberts scored goal number 12 on the season to give him the most on the team. Junior Trey Freeman registered a goal and an assist as he reached double-digits in goals this season with ten. Attacker Joey O’Hara notched his sixth goal of the campaign to round out Hood’s scoring on the afternoon.

Freshman goalkeeper Joseph McCulloh played a good game in goal with a relentless Stevenson attack coming at him all game. McCulloh made 18 saves on 30 shots while fellow freshman Cody Hass played the last five minutes of the second quarter and registered a save on two shots. Hood was countered by Stevenson goalkeepers Ian Bolland and Kevin Cain who combined to make four saves on seven shots.

Stevenson’s Chris Dashiell paced the Mustang attack netting five goals and assisting on one other. Hood was never able to get the Mustangs out of their rhythm passing game that proved too difficult for the blue and grey to keep up with.

Stevenson scored the first four goals of the game and all of the goals in the first quarter. Roberts put the Blazers on the board with his second quarter goal and O’Hara netted his goal in the second as well with a man up for Hood. Stevenson though would take a 7-2 lead into the half after a Dashiell goal with 37.0 seconds remaining.

Freeman scored Hood’s lone goal of the second half with a strong strike off a good feed from Ricky Orndorff. Dashiell scored three second half goals as the Mustangs won the half 6-1 en route to its fourth conference victory of the season.

I have no idea what Three Dog Night even looks like at this point. I would be more than happy to sing along with this though…

Since Sonny Weems doesn’t play for the Raptors anymore, he won’t be there when the ‘Zards visit Canada. It’s a shame because if he was he could bring his creepy foot…

I get the feeling there won’t be many folks willing to click on Page 2 or Page 3 after that, but we’re going to keep going here anyway.

Stevenson D Holecheck Honored By CAC, Mustangs Move Up in National Rankings

Posted on 26 March 2012 by WNST Staff

YORK, Pa. – Stevenson men’s lacrosse junior Kyle Holecheck (Reisterstown, Md./Loyola Blakefield) was named CAC Defensive Player of the Week on Monday after leading the Mustangs to a pair of victories last week, including a 9-5 win over No. 2 Tufts at Mustang
Stadium.

Holecheck totaled 13 ground balls and six caused turnovers in wins over Tufts and Mary Washington, who was receiving votes in today’s USILA Division III Coaches’ Poll.

Holocheck is the first Mustang to be honored by the CAC since Kyle Moffitt was named Offensive Player of the Week on Apr. 18, 2011. The last time a Stevenson defender was honored with the conference’s top weekly honor was back on Mar. 21, 2011 when Evan Douglass was named Defensive Player of the Week.

The Mustangs, who are currently ranked 15th in Division III in scoring defense, allowed just 11 goals in two games last week, including five against Tufts who entered the week ranked ninth in scoring offense. Holecheck totaled eight ground balls and six caused turnovers against the Jumbos.

Stevenson allowed just six goals in a 13-6 victory over Mary Washington and is 88-2 all time when allowing six goals or less while
winning 55 out of the last 56. The Mustangs have allowed six goals or less in eight out of nine games this season.

Stevenson puts its 14-game CAC winning streak on the line on Wednesday when it travels to Dover, Delaware for a 4:00 p.m., contest with Wesley at Miller Stadium.

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. – Led by three points each from freshman Stephen Banick (Charlotte, N.C./Charlotte Catholic) and sophomore Chris Dashiell (Salisbury, Md./Parkside), the 10th-ranked Stevenson men’s lacrosse team posted a 13-6 CAC road victory over Mary Washington Saturday at the Battleground Complex.

The Mustangs (7-2, 2-0 CAC), who are one of two conference unbeatens with St. Mary’s (Md.) and No. 1-ranked Salisbury, have now allowed six goals or less in eight out of nine games this season.

The win also improved Stevenson’s conference winning streak to 14, dating back to an 18-6 victory at Marymount (Va.) on Apr. 7, 2010.

After a low scoring first quarter in which each team netted one goal, Luke Dick scored back-to-back unassisted tallies to give the Eagles
their only lead of the game at 3-2 with 8:06 remaining in the second quarter.

From there, Stevenson scored the game’s next seven consecutive goals to take a 9-3 lead with 3:13 to play in the third. The first two goals
came with a man advantage on strikes from senior Nick Rossi (Lutherville, Md./Towson) and freshman Billy Burgoyne (Boonton Township, N.J./Mountain Lakes).

The Mustangs are 3-for-6 with the man advantage over last two games after starting the season 5-for-45 in the first seven.

Led by two goals from Banick and three assists from Dashiell, Stevenson outscored Mary Washington 9-3 in the second half while
winning 9-of-14 face-offs. The Mustang defense also held the Eagles without a goal on seven man-up opportunities totaling five minutes.

After entering the game 1-for-6 on face-offs, freshman Sam Wyatt (Brentwood, Tenn./Brentwood) won 11-of-18 against the Eagles and
scooped up a career-high 10 ground balls.

Burgoyne, junior Andrew Bishop (Lothian, Md./Southern) and sophomore J.P. Coombe (Annapolis, Md./St. Mary’s) each finished with two goals as 12 different players scored for Stevenson. Junior Kyle Fendlay (Westminster, Md./Winters Mill) picked up an assist from his defensive position and junior Tyler Reid (Clinton, Conn./Xavier) netted his seventh goal of the season in his first game since March 10 at No. 9 Lynchburg.

Senior Ian Bolland (Mountain Lakes, N.J./Mountain Lakes) was credited with eight saves.

Dick totaled four points for Mary Washington (6-2, 2-1 CAC) with three goals and one assist while Matt Prin had nine saves.

Stevenson Falters After Half In Loss at Cortland

Posted on 17 March 2012 by WNST Staff

CORTLAND, N.Y. – Greg Wright scored all three of his goals in the third quarter while Cody Consul totaled two of his game-high six points as No. 3 SUNY Cortland outscored the No. 9-ranked Stevenson men’s lacrosse team by four en route to a 13-9 victory Saturday at the Stadium Complex.

The Mustangs (5-2) suffered their first loss in three career meetings against the Red Dragons and their second in as many road games this season. The last time Stevenson lost at least two games on the road was during the 2005 season against Gettysburg, Lynchburg and Salisbury.

Freshmen Stephen Banick (Charlotte, N.C./Charlotte Catholic) and Pat Candon (Long Beach, N.Y./Holy Trinity) led the Mustangs with two goals apiece while freshman Michael Crowe (Arlington, Va./Yorktown) tied his career-high with two points on a goal and an assist.

Stevenson was outshot 40-28 and were 0-for-4 on the man advantage. The team has not scored on its last 15 extra-man opportunities, a stretch that spans the last three games.

Consul led Cortland (4-0) with three goals and three assists while Wright finished with four points.

Today’s loss marks the first time this season that Stevenson’s ninth-ranked scoring defense allowed more than six goals in a game this season. The Mustangs’ six-game streak of six goals or less was the longest in school history, eclipsing the previous mark set in 2003 when they held five consecutive opponents to six goals or less from April 10 to April 22.

Stevenson is 86-2 all-time when allowing six goals or less. The team had won 52-straight before falling at No. 9 Lynchburg last Saturday, 6-3.

Freshman Parker Bratton (Baltimore, Md./McDonogh) led the defense with five caused turnovers and three ground balls.

The Red Dragons jumped out to a 3-1 lead in the game’s first eight minutes before the Mustangs scored four of the next five goals to take its only lead of the game at 5-4 with 13:11 remaining in the second quarter.

Cortland answered with a quick 3-0 burst to go back in front 7-5 before Stevenson scored two goals in the final 52 seconds of the first half to tie the game at 7-7 going into halftime.

However, the Red Dragons outscored the Mustangs 5-1 in a decisive third quarter and 6-2 in the second half.

Senior Ian Bolland (Mountain Lakes, N.J./Mountain Lakes) was credited with 12 saves while counterpart Mike Kaminski had 14, including five in the fourth quarter.

Stevenson returns home to face No. 2 Tufts on Tuesday at Mustang Stadium beginning at 7:00 p.m. The game will be televised live on Maryland Public Television’s MPT2 which can be seen on Comcast 268 and Verizon Fios 480. It will also be simulcast live at GoMustangSports.com.

Defensively, the Mustangs held their opponent to six goals or less for the sixth time this season while holding the Spartans (3-3, 0-1 CAC) scoreless in the fourth quarter as Stevenson broke a 5-5 tie with goals from freshman Stephen Banick (Charlotte, N.C./Charlotte Catholic) and sophomore J.P. Coombe (Annapolis, Md./St. Mary’s).

The team’s leader in goals, assists and points this season, Banick finished with three points on two goals and one assist. Sophomore Chris Dashiell (Salisbury, Md./Parkside) had one goal and one assist.
