The Game Story:
Freshman Matt Harvey (Bayshore, NY/Islip) scored three first half goals
while assisting on a man-up goal in pacing the Oneonta State men's lacrosse
team to an overpowering 12-6 victory against Brockport in the SUNYAC opener
for both teams. The Red Dragons (7-3/1-0) raced out to an 11-2 halftime
lead and then used the clock wisely in the second half to take the win.
The loss for the Golden Eagles drops them back to the .500 mark at 4-4
overall.
Oneonta struck first at the 11 minute mark of the first period on
Harvey's first goal of the game. Junior Neal Campbell (Merrick, NY/Mepham)
made a great feed to Harvey who finished strong to give the Red Dragons the
early lead.
Less than one minute later the Golden Eagles tied the score on an
unassisted goal by junior Joe Aquilina (Webster, NY/Webster Schroeder).
Oneonta then ran off seven unanswered goals to take a commanding 8-1
lead with 10 minutes to go in the second period. Junior Mike Schanz
(Endwell, NY/Maine Endwell) scored a pair of goals during the explosion
including a man-down goal.
Brockport did out score Oneonta 4-1 in the second half including two
man-up goals by sophomores Anthony Ventresca (Syracuse, NY/Henniger) and
