The Game Story:
The Oneonta State men's lacrosse team scored twenty straight goals this afternoon en route to a 23-1 rout of visiting SUNYIT in SUNYAC action at All College Field. The win for the Red Dragons brings its overall record to 5-6 and 3-1 in conference play while the Wildcats fall to 0-8 overall and 0-4 in the SUNYAC.

The hosts didn't register its first goal until the 12:34 mark of the opening quarter when junior Matt Winchell (Syracuse, NY/Henniger) took a pass from classmate James Battaglia (Saratoga, NY/Saratoga Springs) who then found the back of the goal for the 1-0 lead. The floodgates opened after the opening goal as Oneonta found itself with a 12-0 lead at the end of the first quarter. Junior Ben Sander (Pomona, NY/Lakeland) led the attack with three of his four goals on the day in the opening quarter.

The lone goal for the Wildcats came less than one minute into the fourth quarter when junior Dan Flechsenhaar (Penn Yan, NY/Finger Lakes) scored with an assist from classmate Pat Amidon (LaFayette, NY/Onondaga). The Red Dragons finished the day with 15 different players registering a point led by Sander and freshman Evan Mann (Woodbury, NY/Syosset) who each tallied five points each.

The Red Dragons will be in action again this coming Saturday when they travel to Rochester to face St. John Fisher for a game that begins at 7:00 p.m.
