April 19, 2005
The Game Story:
SPRINGFIELD, MASS. * Freshman Mike McLaughlin (Syracuse, N.Y./Westhill)
scored four goals and assisted on three more to lead top-ranked Le Moyne to
a 19-0 win over American International in a Northeast-10 Conference men's
lacrosse game at John H. Miller Field. The Dolphins (10-0, 9-0 Northeast-10)
have won 26 consecutive games overall and 59 straight Northeast-10
Conference regular season games.

The shutout marks the second straight for Le Moyne over the Yellow Jackets
(0-7, 0-7 Northeast-10) and the second shutout of the season for the
nation's top defense. Le Moyne, also a 19-0 shutout winner at Franklin
Pierce on April 3, has allowed its opposition just 2.4 goals per game this
season.

Le Moyne jumped out to an 8-0 lead in the opening quarter. Seven different
Dolphins scored as Ryan Lewis (Minoa, N.Y./East Syracuse-Minoa), Jason Long
(Cazenovia, N.Y./Cazenovia), Brad Wolken (Baldwinsville,
N.Y./Baldwinsville), Kyle Reichel (East Syracuse, N.Y./East Syracuse-Minoa),
Chris Hand (Lisle, N.Y./Whitney Point) and Mike McDonald (Latham,
N.Y./Shaker) tallied in succession before Longo made it 8-0 on an extra-man
goal at the end of the quarter. Le Moyne opened up a 12-0 lead at the half
and tacked on seven more goals in the second half.

Freshman Brian Cost (Camillus, N.Y./West Genesee) scored three times and
Eric Roberts (Camillus, N.Y./West Genesee) added two goals to join
McLaughlin and Longo with multiple scores.

Le Moyne outshot its hosts 38-3 and held American International without a
shot in the first and third quarters. The shutout marks the fifth in the
history of the men's lacrosse program at Le Moyne.

Saturday, Le Moyne hosts No. 5 Adelphi at 1 p.m. The contest will be
televised LIVE throughout Central and Northern New York on Time Warner
Sports 26. It will be rebroadcast nationally on CSTV Tuesday April 26 at 8
