April 5, 2003
The Game Story:
NEW HAVEN, Conn. Mike Scaglione had three goals and one assist and Seth Goldberg added another three goals as the Yale men's lacrosse team defeated Lehigh 15-9 before 429 fans at the Soccer-Lacrosse Stadium.

Yale (6-2) led 6-5 at the half before putting the game away over the last two quarters by outscoring the Mountain Hawks (4-6) 9-4. The Bulldogs won the battle for ground balls, 58-41, and outshot the visitors 49-34 on the way to their sixth victory in a game played in muddy conditions with heavy rain.

Freshman Dan Kallaugher got the high-scoring Elis off to a fast start by winning the opening draw and then firing a quick shot past Tom Ellis (19 saves). Kallaugher, who had another goal that way in the fourth, won 17 of 26 faceoffs on the day and had 12 ground balls.

Ned Britt had two goals and three assists, while Pay Moyland and David Schecter each hit the net twice. Freshman David Wright, making his first collegiate start in goal, made 10 saves, including five in the first period.

The Bulldogs led 9-7 after three quarters but scored six of the last eight goals while outshooting the Mountain Hawks 14-5 in the fourth. Two of the Yale goals in the final frame came off Lehigh sticks. Yale's 13th goal came when a Lehigh defender attempted to scoop up a ground ball and lost control. Scaglione was the closest Eli to the play and was credited with the goal. That came two minutes after a Mountain Hawk player flipped a loose ball in the air toward his own goal. Goldberg earned that score while fighting for the ball.

Tony Lowe led Lehigh offensively with four goals and one assist, while Greg Morin added three assists. Five other Mountain Hawks found the net. Scott Carpenter led the squad with six ground balls. Ellis, who had nine save in the third period, had an assist with a long pass that resulted in a Lowe goal with one second on the clock in the first.
