Gettysburg vs. Denison
March 12, 2005
The Game Story:
GETTYSBURG, Pa. - Pat Vaughan (Cockeysville, MD/Loyola Blakefield)
recorded 14 saves as Gettysburg allowed only one second-half goal in
a 6-4 non-conference men's lacrosse win over Denison on Saturday.

Vaughan, a preseason All-America honorable mention, made
six of his stops in the third quarter, keeping the Big Red (1-1) off
the board and helping the Bullets (1-1) stay ahead en route to their
first victory of the year. Jared Harriman (Yarmouth, ME/Yarmouth) and
Jon Sowanick (Bethesda, MD/Bullis) led the Gettysburg offense with
two goals apiece.

Brian Pryor (Dallas, TX/St. Mark's) and Chase Stewart
(Downingtown, PA/Downingtown) each added one goal and one assist in
the win.

P.J. Hendrick scored twice for Denison, who was facing
the Bullets for the first time since the 2001 national semifinals.

Chris Boehl put the Big Red ahead 1-0 midway through the
first quarter, but his bid to make it 2-0 was stopped by Vaughan and
Harriman scored moments later to tie the game at 1.

Pryor's finish off a behind-the-net feed from Stewart put
Gettysburg ahead 2-1 with 27.6 seconds left in the first quarter.
Sowanick struck with 8:17 left in the half for a 3-1 lead, but
Denison got an even-strength goal from Hendrick and a man-up tally
from Tom Moschos in a span of 2 minutes, 46 seconds to knot the game
at 3.

Vaughan kept the game even with a stop on Clay Wawner and
the Bullets turned a late timeout into a Harriman goal with 33
seconds left in the half, going ahead to stay at 4-3.

After halftime, Vaughan and the Gettysburg defense made
sure the home team maintained its lead.

The Bullets killed back-to-back, 30-second man-down
situations before Stewart finished an unassisted run for a crucial
two-goal lead with 8:22 left in the third. Vaughan recorded four more
saves through the remainer of the period, including stops in rapid
succession on Wawner, Rick Mackessy and Ted Douglass.

Sowanick provided a key insurance goal, lasering a shot
past Big Red goalie Alex Baruch to make it 6-3 with 9:59 remaining.
Gettysburg kept Denison off the board until the game's final 67
seconds, when Hendrick finished a solo move to snap his squad's
32-minute, 41-second scoring drought.

On the ensuing face-off, Chris Renzi (Fairport,
NY/Fairport) posted the last of his seven face-off wins and the
Bullets were able to run out the clock. Renzi finished 7-for-11 at
the "X" and also recorded a team-high seven ground balls.

Gettysburg returns to action on Wednesday at home against
Susquehanna. Game time is 3:30 p.m.
