|TOWSON, MD - On the way to a 13-3 record in 2001, Goucher College was a perfect
4-0 in one-goal games. Today, however, the Gophers were on the other end of a
one-goal decision, losing at home to Dickinson, 9-8.
A goal by Qadir Stern (Lower Merion, PA/Lower Merion) with :29 remaining in the
fourth quarter trimmed what had been a four-goal lead for Dickinson (1-4)
earlier in the period down to 9-8. The Gophers managed to win the subsequent
face-off and get a shot off just seconds before time expired, but the shot that
would had forced overtime had it gone in stayed wide.|
One game after Phil Anthony (Flemington, NJ/Hunterdon Central) became the
all-time leader in career assists at Goucher, the senior attackman collected
his 100th career goal. Anthony reached the milestone that only three others in
school history have achieved with 2:32 remaining in the first quarter and his
goal tied the score at 2-2. The Gophers (3-2) took their only lead of the
contest on a goal by Stern with 1:22 left in the opening period, but the lead
last less than a minute as an unassisted goal by Jack Miner of the Red Devils
created a 3-3 tie.
Neither team was able to dent the scoreboard in the second quarter, so the 3-3
tie held up until Dickinson reeled off four goals in a span of 5:17 of the
third quarter. After three periods, the Red Devils enjoyed a 7-4 lead.
Miner had a hand in five of Dickinson's nine goals, scoring three times and
picking up two assists. Stern supplied the Gophers with a pair of goals, as did
Max Agee (Towson, MD/Towson).
