Hobart vs. Marist
March 13, 2007
The Game Story:
GENEVA, N.Y.-Hobart College junior Daryl Veltman (Salisbury
School/Georgetown, Ontario) recorded the 100th point of his career
while leading the Statesmen to a 10-5 victory over Marist College on
McCooey Field this afternoon. Veltman netted a pair of goals and set
up two more to raise his career total to 103.



The attackman needed just three and a half minutes and one shot to
reach the 100-point plateau in his 32nd career game. He is the fastest
of the sixth Division I Statesmen to reach that milestone, beating
Nathan Roost '98 by one game.



Hobart outscored the Red Foxes 4-1 in the first quarter and never
looked back. The Statesmen won all of the major stat categories,
outshooting their guests 45-31, collecting more ground balls (43-24),
winning more faceoffs (13-6), and clearing at a much higher rate
(91.6%-64.2). The Hobart defense was sharp all afternoon, but excelled
in man-down situations, killing off all six of Marist's extra-man
opportunities.



Senior midfielder Chris David (Georgetown Prep/Silver Spring, Md.)
netted a hat trick for the Statesmen, while junior attackman Jamie
Kirk (Salisbury School/Orangeville, Ontario) handed out three assists.
Sophomore attackman Jeff Colburn (CNS/Liverpool, N.Y.) also
contributed three points on two goals and an assist.



Sophomore midfielder Paul Santavicca (Yorktown/Yorktown Heights, N.Y.)
paced the Red Foxes attack with a pair of fourth quarter goals.



Sophomore Matt Smalley (Avon Old Farms/Cumberland, R.I.) collected a
game-high seven ground balls for Hobart, while senior Matt Ranaghan
(Cape Elizabeth/Cape Elizabeth, Maine) and junior Dan Spinella (New
Hartford/New Hartford, Conn.) each picked up six. Spinella dominated
the X, winning 12 of the 16 restarts he took.



The Statesmen might have won by a much wider margin if not for the
efforts of Marist goalie Ryan Penner (Yorktown/Yorktown Heights,
N.Y.). The sophomore turned back 16 shots, including two from
point-blank range, and helped his own cause with the second of the Red
Foxes' two first-half goals. With Hobart employing a 10-man ride,
Penner saw Hobart starter Brandon Baer (Locust Valley/Bayville, N.Y.)
stray too far from his cage. Penner launched a shot from his own
restraining box that bounced just inside the crease and hopped up just
under the cross bar.



Baer played 43 minutes, stopping nine of the 11 shots he faced.
Sophomore Brad Hester (Woodbridge/Woodbridge, Va.) and first-year Max
Silberlicht (New Hartford/New Hartford, Conn.) combined for four saves
in relief.
