March 27, 2010
The Game Story:
Nashua Ė Clayton Fisk (Pittston, Maine) snapped an 11-all tie with 58 seconds remaining in regulation giving the Emerson College menís lacrosse team a 12-11 victory over host Daniel Webster College in a regional matchup Saturday afternoon at a chilled Eagle Field.

Fiskís game winner spoiled a late Eagles rally in which DWC (0-3) had scored three goals in the span of just 2:23 that turned an 11-8 deficit into a tie with overtime looming.

The Lions (1-2) never trailed but never led by more than three as the Eagles consistently stayed close throughout the course of the game. Emerson held leads of 3-2 after one, 7-6 at the half and 9-7 after three quarters.

After Emersonís Brian Dorrington (Billerica, Mass.) buried an unassisted tally for an 11-8 lead with 8:08 remaining, the Eagles went to work as Antonio Polson (Lanesboro, Mass.) and Alex McKenzie (Nashua) scored just nine seconds apart for an 11-10 game with 6:53 to play. Mike Jordan (Wakefield, Mass.) would then convert on a McKenzie feed with 4:49 left for the tie, setting up Fiskís game winner.

Dorrington would finish with four goals to pace the Lions, while Fisk netted three and added two assists. Dan Gold (Randolph, N.J.) notched two goals and three assists, while Phil Shore (Toms River, N.J.) added two goals and set up two others.

Jordan and McKenzie would lead the Eagles with three goals and an assist each, while Noah Smith (Medford, Mass.) added a goal and racked up four assists.
