|Ryan Notches Hat Trick; McGrath Hits 100 as Men's Lax Wins Eighth Straight|
GETTYSBURG, Pa. – Junior Andrew Ryan celebrated his birthday with a hat trick, scoring three goals as the No. 1 Gettysburg College men’s lacrosse team downed Muhlenberg College 14-2 in a Centennial Conference match-up Saturday afternoon at a sun-drenched Shirk Field at Musselman Stadium.
Gettysburg (8-0, 2-0 CC) has now tied its best start in program history, as the 2008 Bullets also opened the season 8-0.
Senior Kyle McGrath posted two goals and scored his 100th career point with a fourth-quarter assist for Gettysburg, which won its 20th straight home game – one shy of the school record.
One game after making a career-high 15 saves in a 12-9 win over No. 19 Cabrnini, sophomore John LeClerc stopped 10 shots while yielding just one goal over 52:20 of action.
Junior defenseman John Odierna also turned in a strong performance on his birthday, finishing with two caused turnovers and two ground balls as the Gettysburg defense held its seventh opponent to a single-digit goal total this season.
Junior Chris Cahill added to a balanced offensive attack, notching two goals and one assist while senior Josh Reichert and junior Danno Lynch added two goals apiece. Sophomore Pat Sartory contributed one goal and two assists while senior Joe Brody tallied one goal and one assist.
Ari Jacobson scored both goals for Muhlenberg (2-3, 1-1 CC).
The Bullets got out to a quick start, with Lynch and Ryan scoring inside the first five minutes. Cahill added back-to-back tallies midway through the quarter before Ryan struck again with 1:24 left to put the Orange & Blue up 5-0 after 15 minutes of play.
Gettysburg continued its game-opening run in the second quarter, getting four goals from four players to make it 9-0 with 5:43 left before the half. Jacobson put the Mules on the scoreboard with a man-up goal with 1:45 showing, making it a 9-1 game at the intermission.
The Bullets extended their lead to 14-1 after running off the next five goals before Jacobson set the final score with 5:19 remaining in the game.
Junior defenseman Tommy Barnett caused two turnovers and led all players with five ground balls for the Bullets. Freshman Nick Avedisian had an outstanding day at the face-off X, where he went 12-for-16 with four ground balls.
Mike Horowitz played the opening 34 minutes in goal for the Mules and made six saves while yielding 10 goals. Oliver Baron played the rest of the way, stopping five shots.
Gettysburg continues Centennial Conference play on Wednesday, when it visits No. 10 Dickinson College at 3:30 p.m.
