March 26, 2005
The Game Story:
TOWSON, MD - Goucher picked up its first win over a nationally ranked
Division III opponent in more than seven years today when the Gophers
tallied the first four goals of the second half on the way to a 9-7
victory over No. 20 Mary Washington.

The Gophers (6-3, 3-1 Capital Athletic Conference) were down 4-2
after one period, but extra-man goals by Alan Tiet (Aurora, CO/Smokey
Hill) and Brent Shea (Fallston, MD/Fallston) early in the second
quarter created a 4-4 deadlock. The two teams were tied 5-5 at the
half.

Shea and Tiet both tallied their second goals of the contest in the
third period, providing Goucher with a 7-5 advantage heading into the
final 15:00.

The Gophers' lead widened to 9-5 on back-to-back goals by Dan
Flamholz (Baltimore, MD/Park School) early in the fourth quarter.
Mary Washington (5-3, 2-1 Capital Athletic Conference) picked up its
first goal in more than 38 minutes when Dave Justen scored with 2:29
remaining, reducing the Eagles' deficit to 9-6.

Flamholz finished with three goals and a pair of assists.
Goucher's extra-man unit had a banner day, producing three goals on
five opportunities during the contest. On the other side, the Gophers
surrendered two goals on Mary Washington's eight man-up chances.

The win was only Goucher's third in 15 tries in the all-time series
between the two schools. The last time the Gophers knocked off a
nationally ranked Division III opponent was March 4, 1998, when they
pinned a 12-2 setback on No. 19 Franklin & Marshall.
