The Game Story:
Hounds Fall By 9-4 Final to No. 2 Le Moyne
Worcester, Mass. (March 2) -- On Saturday afternoon, the Assumption College men's lacrosse team dropped a 9-4 final to No. 2 ranked Le Moyne in Northeast-10 Conference action at the Multi-Sport Stadium.

Le Moyne was in control over the first two quarters as the Dolphins built to an 8-0 halftime lead behind a 34-4 shot advantage and goals from seven different scorers. In third quarter, Tyler Prevost pushed the advantage up to 9-0 in favor of the Dolphins before the momentum swung back to the Hounds for the final two quarters of play.

With 3:02 left in the third quarter, sophomore Ty Martina (Marshfield, Mass./Marshfield) got the Hounds on the board with his third goal of the season. In the opening minutes of the third, senior attack Connor MacNeil (Wayland, Mass./Wayland) scored his first of the season off an assist from sophomore Peter Gersbeck (Wading River, N.Y./Shoreham-Wading River). Sophomore attack Tim Casey (Shrewsbury, Mass./Shrewsbury) scored twice in a span of 53 seconds to cut the lead down to 9-4 with 7:26 left, but that was as close as the Hounds would get.

Casey led the Assumption offense with a pair of goals, while sophomore goalie Will Contento (Marshfield, Mass./Marshfield) made 17 saves in the loss.

Andrew Chadderdon led the Dolphins with a six-point afternoon two goals and four assists, while senior goalie Jeff White picked up the win to improve to 2-0 after a two-save effort.
