The Game Story:
MANCHESTER, NH - Sophomore Bryan Kaufmann (Putnam Valley, NY) scored
four goals while classmate Kevin Hoagland (Glastonbury, Conn.) added
two scores to help lead the Bryant University men's lacrosse team to
an 11-5 Northeast-10 Conference win at Saint Anselm Saturday
afternoon. The win, Bryant's eighth-straight, improves the Bulldogs
record to 8-2 on the season (7-0 in NE-10) play heading into
Tuesday's game at Merrimack College.

Against Saint Anselm on Saturday, the Bulldogs fell behind 2-0 midway
through the first quarter, but goals by Corey Crosbie (Salem, Mass.)
and Brad Burton (Hauppauge, NY) helped pull the Bulldogs even with
the Hawks with under four minutes left to play in the quarter.

Saint Anselm (4-7, 2-5 NE-10) would got back up by one thanks to a
Steve Trocki unassisted goal a minute later, but Kaufmann was there
to answer, scoring with 1:01 left in the quarter on an assist from
Bryan Molk (Peabody, Mass.).

Bryant would score the only two goals of the second, one by Kaufmann
and one from Hoagland to take a 5-3 lead into halftime, but in the
second half, the Bulldogs would score five unanswered goals, two on
the man advantage, to put the game away. Kaufmann would tally a pair
in the quarter while Jim Long (Durham, NH) and Zach Rosenow (Oyster
Bay, NY) would add goals to help propel the offense.

Michael Kennedy (Port Jefferson Station, NY) finished with 10 saves
in the game as Bryant out-shot the Hawks 46 to 26 in the game.
