The Game Story:
Zachary's eight-point game propels Lords past Wooster

GAMBIER, Ohio - Kenyon College junior Ross Zachary took over the top spot in team points Saturday, after he scored four goals and assisted on four others in a 15-6 Lords' victory over the College of Wooster Fighting Scots.

Zachary's eight-point game gives him 20 points this season, one more point than senior Justin Hamilton owns. More importantly, Zachary's output helped the Lords improve their record to 4-2 overall.

The Lords started out Saturday's game with three straight scores from Ben Gildin, Will Walker and Julian Quasha. Wooster (2-3) got one back when Steve Burton scored at the 7:48 mark, but Kenyon retaliated with Zachary's first two goals of the game. The Lords' 5-1 lead nearly doubled in the second quarter as their defense held Wooster to just one more goal. Walker then fired in two of his game-high five goals, while Zachary and Hamilton added one apiece to push the Lords into halftime with a 9-2 lead.

Kenyon's offense kept churning in the third quarter as Walker scored another pair of goals that were sandwiched by tallies from Jason McCaw, Zachary and Hamilton.

Wooster got two goals in the third quarter and two more in the final minutes of the fourth quarter. Kenyon's lone score in the final frame came from Brad Harvey.

The Lords picked up 45 ground balls and outshot the Fighting Scots 35-22. Sophomore goalkeeper Dave Neiman made 10 saves, while his substitute Dan Goldberg stopped three more shots late in the game.

The game was not considered a North Coast Athletic Conference contest. Although both teams belong to the conference, the teams' game on April 23 at Wooster will count in the NCAC standings.
