Dusseau Nails Nine to Lead Georgetown Past Bucknell in Men^s Lacrosse Dusseau started the scoring off for both teams as he scored his first goal five minutes into the game and then gave the Hoyas a 2-0 lead four minutes later. Bucknell was unfazed as the Bison^s Andrew Sanders buried a goal at 6:06. Bucknell knotted the score at two after a holding penalty on Georgetown but Dusseau came right back to bury another shot and give Georgetown a 3-2 advantage at the quarter mark.

Great face-off work by Andy Corno (Bethesda, Md./Walt Whitman) in the second period allowed the Hoyas to maintain possession for most of the first 11 minutes of the quarter. Mike Hammer (Fairfax, Va./Robinson) squeezed in his only goal of the day and then Dusseau bagged two straight, one off a Hammer pass, to open up a four-goal cushion for GU.

Bucknell scored twice in the final five minutes, the first from Chris Cara and then Rob Lane followed up with a goal at the 1:24 mark. The Hoyas entered the half only up two and the momentum swinging toward the Bison.

Bucknell's Lane hit to start the third period and closed the Hoya lead to one. GU turned around and ripped off 12 shots compared to the Bison's three the remainder of the period and the Hoyas built a 9-5 lead heading into the fourth quarter. Dusseau scored two of the three third period goals for Georgetown. Mike Boynton (Fairport, N.Y./Fairport) scored the other goal off a nice catch and shoot from Neal Goldman (Ellicott City, Md./Mount Hebron). Goldman also assisted on Dusseau^s seventh goal.

The fourth quarter finished off Dusseau^s scoring effort as he hit two goals in the first five minutes of the period. His first of the quarter came off a Doug Staab (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) assist. His final goal happened less then a minute later after he received a crisp feed from Jordan Vettoretti (Carmel, N.Y./Mahopac). Seven penalties slowed the pace of the fourth period as both teams became more physical. Phil Vincenti (Bloomfield Hills, Mich./Brother Rice) gave GU a 12-5 lead with an extra man goal, Trevor Walker (Haverford, Pa./Episcopal Academy) had the assist. Two goals from Bucknell^s Dennis Geraghty and a 25-yard blast from Walid Hajj (Baltimore, Md./McDonogh) finished the scoring on the day.
