Gettysburg vs. Denison
March 11, 2006
The Game Story:
GETTYSBURG, Pa. - Junior midfielder Jared Harriman (Yarmouth,
ME/Yarmouth) scored three of his four goals in the first quarter,
helping No. 4 Gettysburg to a 7-0 lead and a 12-3 win over Denison in
non-conference action on Saturday at Shirk Field at Musselman
Stadium. Classmate Pat Vaughan (Cockeysville, MD/Loyola Blakefield)
stopped 10 of the Big Red's 13 shots on goal to pick up his second
win of the season.

Seniors Evan Gallant (Lutherville, MD/Loyola Blakefield)
and Chase Stewart (Downingtown, PA/Downingtown) and junior Kevin
Freehill (Baldwin, NY/Baldwin) chipped in with two goals apiece in
the Bullets' victory. For Denison (1-2), freshman midfielder Dan
Maude scored twice.

Gettysburg (2-0) wasted little time getting on the board.
Harriman scored twice in the first 1:36 of the game, the first coming
off a pass from Freehill. Six minutes later, junior midfielder Andrew
Mavraganis (Lancaster, PA/Hempfield) pushed the lead to 3-0, and
Harriman struck again with 2:58 remaining in the opening quarter to
record his second hat trick in as many outings this season. The
junior is the reigning Centennial Conference Player of the Week,
after tallying four goals and two assists for six points in last
Saturday's 17-2 win over then-No. 17 Washington and Lee.

Freehill scored in the second minute of the second
quarter with an assist going to senior attackman Brian Pryor (Dallas,
TX/St. Mark's), and Gallant scored twice in less than five minutes to
give the Bullets a 7-0 cushion. Maude got the Big Red on the board
with just 1:36 to play before halftime.

Gettysburg was forced to kill off three Denison extra-man
opportunities in the third quarter. Overall, the Bullets dodged four
man-down situations during the game.

The teams alternated goals in the third frame, starting with
Stewart's first marker just 32 seconds after halftime. He had already
tallied an assist and would add another goal later in the third
quarter. Denison junior attacker Clay Wawner scored his only goal of
the game midway through the period, but the visitors were unable to
mount a rally.

Vaughan has now given up just five goals in over 105
minutes of play for a 2.84 goals against average, and Harriman is the
team's leading scorer with eight goals and two assists.

The Bullets return to action on Wednesday when the team travels to
Susquehanna for a 4 p.m. game. It will be the lone road contest in
the season's first eight games.
