April 21, 2007
The Game Story:
On an afternoon which began with celebration, as six Centenary Menís Lacrosse players were honored before playing their final game in a Cyclone uniform, the team fell 13-7 to Richard Stockton. The loss ends the Cyclones conference schedule at 1-8, and moves them to 3-11 overall. The victory for Stockton gives them a winning season as they finish 7-6, 5-4.


The visiting Ospreyís opened the scoring with a goal from Charlie Doud, when Steve Mazurek found him for the shot halfway through the opening period. Stockton would strike again, but not until the 11 minute mark of the second quarter when Keith Bologno scored unassisted goal. Nearly four minutes later the visitorís would extend the lead to 3-0 when Doud tallied his second of the game. Centenaryís Ryan Mangold (Hillsborough/Hillsborough) followed with his own unassisted score getting the home team on the board. The Ospreys would tack on two more goals to Centenaryís one in the closing five minutes of the half to lead 5-2 at the halftime break.


The host Cyclones made an early third quarter charge to get back into the contest as Nate Small (Great Mills, MD/Great Mills) and Vic DeMaio (Vernon/Vernon) would each find the back of the net in the first two minutes, pulling Centenary to within one. Stockton however would answer right back with two of their own, pushing the deficit back to four goals at 7-4. Mangold would register his second goal of the game, on his way to a game high four, at the 7:06 mark giving the Cyclones hope. Unfortunately for the home team it was not meant to be, as the Ospreys ran off five unanswered goals, extending the cushion to 12-5 with 10:44 remaining in the game. Ryan Mangold would cap off the scoring for Centenary scoring two more times in closing minutes, while Stocktonís Brendan McCarthy netted the last goal for the victors.


Mangold led Centenary with his four goals, while Small added two goals and an assist. For the Ospreys five different players netted two goals a piece and goalkeepers Ryota Ishikawa and Pete Marcellano combined for eight saves in the win.
