The Game Story:
AMBIER, Ohio (March 28, 2009) When momentum finally shifted to the Kenyon College sideline in the second-half Saturday against St. Vincent College, nothing kept the Lords from delivering the knock-out blow. It took nearly 40 minutes of play and a four-goal deficit to spark the Kenyon attack, but the Lords scored nine of the game's final eleven goals to claim the come-from-behind, 12-9 win.
With a goal at the 10:04 mark in the third quarter, St. Vincent's lead grew to 7-3 but Kenyon rallied to tie the score, 9-9, by the end of the period. Keying the spurt was a 42-second span in which the Lords (4-3) found the back of the cage three times.

Junior Jordan Zimolka (Bay Shore, NY/Bay Shore) began the run with a man-up goal and classmate Andrew Damskey (Geyserville, CA/Sonoma Academy) turned the spark into a wildfire by winning the ensuing face off, scooping up the ground ball, and racing up-field where he deposited it in the back of the net. Senior Ben Alexander (West Falls, NY/East Aurora) capped the string of quick strikes with the first of his two goals on the afternoon.

The teams added one more goal each to end the third deadlocked, but the Kenyon defense buckled down and didn't allow another Bearcat goal over the final 19 minutes. In fact, St. Vincent (2-5) couldn't even put much pressure goalie David Page (West Chester, PA/St. Andrew's (DE)) down the stretch as the senior net-minder made just three of his nine saves during the final two quarters.

Thanks to that effort, senior Devin Catlin's (Charlottesville, VA/Western Albemarle) score 1:07 into the final frame put the Lords ahead to stay. Catlin also dished out three assists to turn in a four-point afternoon. Junior Dominique McKoy (Portland, OR/Woodrow Wilson) matched Catlin's output, but did so with three goals and an assist. Senior Brett Fuller (Marlborough, MA/Avon Old Farms) also tallied three scores, two of which came during the Lords' second-half outburst.

Kenyon now rides its three-game win-streak into North Coast Athletic Conference competition, which begins next Saturday afternoon at Wittenberg University.
