Gettysburg vs. Susquehanna
March 16, 2005
The Game Story:
GETTYSBURG, Pa. - Brian Pryor (Dallas, TX/St. Mark's) and Chase
Stewart (Downingtown, PA/Downingtown) combined for 16 points to lead
sixth-ranked Gettysburg over Susquehanna 18-2 in non-conference men's
lacrosse action on Wednesday.

Pryor scored three goals and dished out six assists,
setting single-game career highs in both categories. Stewart netted
three of his four goals off of Pryor set-ups and also posted assists
on each goal of Pryor's natural hat trick in the Bullets' eight-goal
second quarter, turning a 2-1 lead into a 10-1 halftime cushion.

Tripp Neville (Duxbury, MA/Duxbury) added his first
collegiate hat trick while Kevin Freehill (Baldwin, NY/Baldwin)
scored his first two goals of the season for Gettysburg (2-1).

James Barile scored both goals for the Crusaders (0-2)
while goalie Dan Kotch recorded 14 saves.

Pryor, a junior who entered the game with 16 career
points, wasted no time building his career day, setting up Freehill
and Stewart to stake the Bullets to an early 2-0 lead.

Barile answered with an unassisted goal to pull
Susquehanna within 2-1, but Gettysburg pulled away with a
near-perfect second quarter.

Stewart opened the period with an unassisted tally, the
first of five Bullet goals on five consecutive trips into Crusader
territory. Stewart scored man-up from Pryor exactly one minute later
and Neville finished a solo run to make it 5-1 with 12:08 left before
halftime.

Starting at the 10:23 mark, Pryor scored off a feed from
Stewart three times over a span of 4 minutes, 17 seconds to extend
the lead to 8-1. Jon Sowanick (Bethesda, MD/Bullis) closed out the
half with a pair of points, scoring unassisted at 5:15 and setting up
Neville for a 10-1 advantage with 2:02 remaining before halftime.

With Pryor dishing out three more assists, Gettysburg
scored the first six goals of the second half to leave no doubt.
Barile's second goal of the game with 8:38 left snapped Susquehanna's
42-minute, 32-second scoring drought.

Bullet freshman Shane Vince (Mendham,
NJ/Morristown-Beard) netted his first collegiate goal and sophomore
Ryan Cook (Pottstown, PA/Owen J. Roberts) added his second to close
out the scoring. Vince's goal came courtesy of senior defenseman Matt
Stanley (Fallston, MD/Calvert Hall College), who dished out his
second collegiate assist on the play.

Gettysburg out-shot Susquehanna 53-18 on the afternoon
and held a 38-18 edge in ground balls.

The Bullets return to action on Saturday at
Hampden-Sydney. Game time is 1 p.m.
