|The Game Story:|
|New Haven, Conn. - Merrick Thomson had three goals and one assist as UAlbany held off Yale, 12-10, for its tenth|
consecutive win on Wednesday evening at Reese Stadium.?
UAlbany (10-0) snapped a 9-9 tie with four seconds left in the third quarter when Frank Resetarits placed a shot
inside the right post.? Thomson gave his team a two-goal cusihion by scoring from the top of the crease following a
successful clear with 59 seconds elapsed in the fourth quarter.? Yale (4-5) closed the gap seven minutes later on
James Ryan's goal.? But Corey Small answered with 3:57 left as he spun to left and rifled a shot into the right side
of the cage.
Yale reversed a 4-2 deficit with three unanswered to take the lead after the first quarter.? Chris Kempner's
extra-man started that run.? Kyle Washabaugh put his team ahead from in front of the crease when the ball barely
crossed the goal mouth.? The Great Danes reeled off three straight in the opening two-plus minutes of the second
period.? Thomson finished off Derek Dale's pass from behind to regain the lead.? Small then blasted a 12-yard shot to
the right of the goalkeeper 17 seconds later after his team won the subsequent face-off.
"I give them credit, they didn't give us an inch to breath," said UAlbany head coach Scott Marr. "Our defense was
outstanding despite the fact that they were on the field for a long time.? That was a huge goal by Frank (Resetarits)
at the end of the third quarter.? Our best players made plays at the right time."
The Bulldogs, who have dropped three straight by two goals or less, trailed 9-6 in the third quarter, but rallied
with three straight in a three-minute-17-second span.? Kempner, who had three goals and two assists, ignited that run
by hitting the top right corner.? Gregory DuBoff later drew his team even by winning a face-off and finishing off the
drive to the net.??
"They played inspired and came out hard in the first quarter," said UAlbany goalkeeper Brett Queener. "We kept our
composure and had to fight for the win. They didn't give it to us.? We lost our concentration for awhile, but then we
communicated better on defense."
Yale's Brendan Gibson had two goals, while goalkeeper George Carafides made nine saves.? Resetarits and Small scored
twice for the Great Danes, who tied the program's longest win streak set in 1972.? UAlbany is ranked No. 2 in the
USILA coaches' poll.
