The Game Story:
GETTYSBURG, Pa. – Twelve different players scored as No. 2-ranked Gettysburg blasted host Dickinson College 17-3 in Centennial Conference men’s lacrosse action Wednesday afternoon at Biddle Field.

Gettysburg (8-0, 3-0 CC) remains undefeated and is now off to its best start in program history.

Senior Jared Harriman (Yarmouth, Maine/Yarmouth) led the Bullets with three goals and an assist while sophomore Joe Brody (Bethesda, Md./Walter Johnson) notched two goals and two assists. Seniors Trip Dyer (Ocean View, Del./Worcester Prep (Md.)) and Ben Sufrin (Mahopac, N.Y./Mahopac) added two goals apiece while junior Zach Pucci (Ridgewood, N.J./Ridgewood) scored once and handed out a pair of assists.

Four different goalies saw action for the Bullets, with junior Zachary Furshman (Miami, Fla./Kent School (Conn.)) playing the opening 45 minutes to earn his third straight victory. Furshman made seven saves and yielded one goal. Juniors Charles Floeckher (Lutherville, Md./Boys Latin School) (5:00, 1 GA, 0 SV), John Gilfillan (Moorestown, N.J./Moorestown) (5:54, 0 GA, 1 SV), and Paul Collura (Cincinnati, Ohio/St. Xavier) (4:06, 1 GA, 1 SV) also entered the game between the pipes.

Russell Matthews gave up the first six goals of the game and was charged with the loss for Dickinson (6-2, 1-1 CC), which was playing without a number of its starters.

The Bullets never trailed after scoring the first six goals of the game. Five different players found the back of the net in the opening quarter, and Sufrin’s second tally of the day made it 6-0 after 15 minutes of play.

Jon Schneider stopped the bleeding briefly for Dickinson, scoring midway through the second quarter to make it 6-1, but Gettysburg responded with nine unanswered goals. It was a 9-1 game at the half, and the Bullets pushed their lead to 15-1 after a six-goal third period.

Freshman Chris Cahill (Nashville, Tenn./Montgomery Bell Academy) and Andrew Ryan (Palm Beach, Fla./Westminster School (Conn.)) each scored their first collegiate goal for Gettysburg.

The Bullets now prepare for a showdown between the top two teams in Division III when they host No. 1-ranked and undefeated Salisbury University on Saturday at 1 p.m.
