April 6, 2003
The Game Story:
LIVERPOOL, N.Y. ^ Junior Dan Holdridge (Syracuse, N.Y./Nottingham) scored four goals and assisted on three more to lead Le Moyne to a 28-8 Northeast-10 Conference men^s lacrosse victory. The Dolphins (7-0, 5-0 Northeast-10) have won 35 consecutive NE-10 regular season games.

Southern New Hampshire (1-2, 0-1 Northeast-10) jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first four minutes and 10 seconds of action. Four different Penmen scored on SNHU^s first four shots on goal. Josh Law (Liverpool, N.Y./Christian Brothers Academy) opened the scoring on an unassisted tally two minutes and six seconds into the action. Forty-four seconds later Joe Hezlep (South Portland, Maine/South Portland) finished off a feed from Brian Flaherty (West Springfield, Mass./West Springfield) to put the Penmen up 2-0. Dan Bierbower (Hopewell Valley, N.J./Hopewell Valley) made it a 3-0 lead on a man-advantage goal with 11:18 left in the opening quarter and Flaherty scored 28 seconds later to hand Le Moyne its biggest deficit of the season.

Le Moyne, which experienced travel difficulties on the way back from Saturday^s 9-7 victory at Bryant that forced an overnight stay in Springfield, Mass., answered with five of the next six goals to pull even at the end of the first quarter. Senior Jason Brown (Watertown, N.Y./Watertown), Holdridge, Kyle Reichel (East Syracuse, N.Y./East Syracuse-Minoa), Ryan Spillett (Camillus, N.Y./West Genesee) and Rob Trowbridge (Pierrepont Manor, N.Y./South Jefferson) netted first period goals for the Dolphins.

After Kyle Hintlian (Lexington, Mass./Lexington) regained the lead for SNHU with a goal at the 4:50 mark of the first quarter, Le Moyne rattled off 18 of the next 19 goals. That spurt, which covered 41 minutes and 33 seconds, turned a 5-4 deficit into a 22-5 advantage. Holdridge capped a run of 14 consecutive Le Moyne goals two minutes and 36 seconds into the fourth quarter.

Holdridge was one of 15 Le Moyne players to score in the win. Ryan Spillett matched Holdridge with seven points on three goals and four assists.

Le Moyne outshot the visitors 61-19, held a 27-10 advantage on the faceoff and collected 19 more ground balls. Freshman Ryan Fennell (South Salem, N.Y./John Jay) played nearly 38 minutes and made a team-high four saves at goalkeeper. Senior Tom Kimble (Canandaigua, N.Y./Canandaigua) allowed five goals in 15 minutes of action and sophomore Brannan Karg (Fairport, N.Y./Fairport) was credited with one save in the final 7:04.

Le Moyne hosts Saint Anselm on Wednesday at 4 p.m.
