Yale vs. Quinnipiac
March 22, 2005
The Game Story:
Junior attackman Colin Neville had four goals and one assist and sophomore attackman Chris Kempner hit the net three times as the Yale men's lacrosse team breezed past Quinnipiac 13-3 at Johnson Field.

Yale (3-1), which won for the third straight time and outshot the visitors 41-31, also got a goal and two assists from junior attacker Dan Brillman. Freshman goalie George Carafides picked up his third win with just six saves in just under 49 minutes.

The Bulldogs outhustled the Bobcats (0-5) with a groundball advantage of 36-19 and broke up a 1-1 game with seven straight goals from late in the first quarter to the middle of the second. That was all possible because Yale midfielder Dan Kallaugher won eight of nine faceoffs in the first half and finished with 10 of 13 while also tallying a goal.

Eight different Bulldogs hit the net including junior David Schecter, who was only credited with an assist on the night. His hard and high shot in the fourth quarter went through the net but the goal went undetected by officials as the ball rolled out of bounds. The referee asked for the hole in the net to be fixed but did not award Yale a goal.

The Elis, who never tailed in this one, were not able to tally their second goal of the game until there was 1:34 left in the opening frame.

"They made it tough for us to move the ball around and really disrupted our flow, but we showed great patience," said Yale head coach Andy Shay. "We got our transition going in the end and we got a pretty good win with everyone getting to play."

Sophomore goalie Jordan Ellis (2 shots, 0 saves, 0 GA, 6:41) and junior David Wright (5, 1, 1, 4:38) saw action for Yale over the last 11 minutes. They helped the Bulldog defense go through its second straight contest without allowing consecutive goals.

Quinnipiac, blanked on both of its man-up chances, got a pair of goals from Leigh DiPace and another from Sean McBride, while goalie James Nastro made nine saves in going the distance.
