The Game Story:
GAMBIER, Ohio -- (April 14, 2007) Behind an impressive three goal and five assist output from junior attack Nate Pritchard (Narbeth, PA/Lower Merion) Saturday, the Kenyon College men's lacrosse team cruised past the St. Vincent College Bearcats, 20-9. It was the Lords' first 20-goal output of the spring and second in the last two seasons.

Pritchard put Kenyon the board early with an unassisted goal just with twenty-six seconds gone off the first-period clock. The two sides swapped scores with Kenyon holding a slim 5-3 advantage after fifteen minutes. Pritchard finished the period with two goals and one of his team-high five assists on a stellar pass to senior Luke Larson (Mercer Island, WA/Seattle Academy).

The Bearcats (1-7) tied the game at the 12:12 mark of the second quarter with two quick goals. Over the next twenty-seven minutes of action, the Lords flexed both their muscle at both ends of the field. Kenyon rattled off 4-0 and 7-0 goal spurts and possessed a commanding 17-7 bulge after three periods. Sophomore Devin Catlin (Charlottesville, VA/Western Albemarle) and Larson recorded four goals and an assist during the KC offensive outburst.

Sophomore Brett Fuller (Marlborough, MA/Avon Old Farms) and senior Adam Lucas (Ruxton, MD/St. Paul's) also had big games for Kenyon, as each contributed two goals while Fuller added an assist. Senior Sean Wheeler (Darien, CT/Brunswick School) chipped in with a goal and three assists for the KC attack.

St. Vincent was lead on offense by three goals from Jeff D'Antonio and Bart Costello. Gavin Bates also posted a goal and two assists for the Bearcats.

The Lords improved to 8-1 overall and take to the road for their final game away from McBride Field next Friday. They will travel to Wooster and square off with the College of Wooster Fighting Scots at 7:30 p.m.
