All seven of his points came before 11:25 of the second quarter.
Two other players had four-point days for Maritime, as sophomores James D’Amico (Floral Park, N.Y./St. Francis Prep.) and Brennen Siele (Manorville, N.Y./Eastport South Manor) both recorded hat-tricks to go along with one assist. Junior Matthew Messina (West Sayville, N.Y./Sayville), sophomore Dylan Larmony (Old Bethpage, N.Y./Planview JFK) and freshman Robert Sterbens (Manorville, N.Y./Eastport South Manor) all had two goals apiece, while six other Privateers recorded one goal each.
