The Game Story:
Hempstead, NY --

Junior midfielder Tim Treubig’s (pictured) man-up goal midway through the third quarter broke a 4-4 tie and propelled the Hofstra Pride to a 11-5 victory over the Crimson of Harvard at Shuart Stadium Saturday night. The Pride, who won their second straight contest and their fifth in the last six outings, improve to 8-7 on the season heading into the CAA Tournament on Wednesday (May 4). Harvard falls to 5-7.

Harvard jumped out to a 2-1 lead after one quarter. After Hofstra sophomore Athan Iannucci opened the scoring on a rebound in front of the cage 4:36 into the contest, Harvard’s Zach Widbin (13th) and Brooks Scholl (18th) scored goals to give the Crimson the lead. But Hofstra middie John Keysor ( 17th) scored in the first minute of the second quarter, off a pass from Chris Unterstein, and Iannucci tallied his 25th of the year, from Unterstein, on a turnaround shot as the half expired for a 3-2 Pride advantage.

After Keysor gave the Pride a 4-2 lead on a running shot from seven yards out two minutes into the third quarter, Scholl scored from seven yards out a minute later and Tom Boylan tied it up at 4-4 for Harvard with an unassisted goal with 9:22 to play in the third. Treubig (15th) gave Hofstra the lead for good when he took a pass from Iannucci 12 yards out in the middle of the box and fired a bullet past Crimson goalie Evan O’Donnell at the 5:18 mark for a 5-4 lead. Chris Unterstein gave the Pride a two-goal cushion with his 14th of the season two minutes later off a pass from John Keysor.

Zach Widbin scored his second of the game and 14th of the year with just 47 seconds remaining in the third to close to 6-5. But Hofstra closed the door and scored some more in the final quarter, posting five unanswered goals by five different Pride players. John Orsen tallied his fifth of the season, Treubig notched his second of the game and 16th of the year and Rob Bonaguro added his 14th of the season both on the man-up, Bill Peters tallied his second of the year, and Iannucci got the hat-trick on a man-down goal for his 26th goal of the year.

Although outshot 33-30, the Pride picked up 39 ground balls to Harvard’s 29 and were three-for-three on the man-up. Hofstra goalie Matt Southard, making his second start since the end of March, recorded 12 saves while O’Donnell had 11 saves in the Crimson cage.
