April 9 - Josh Feine scored five goals and added two assists to lead the 14th ranked St. Lawrence University men?s lacrosse team to a 13-7 win over Plattsburgh in a non-league game on North Country Field on Wednesday afternoon. Feine?s fourth goal of the afternoon was the 100th of his career. The junior from East Aurora, NY, now has 101 goals and 40 assists in just 40 games. He is the tenth player in St. Lawrence history to score 100 goals.

The Saints actually trailed the Cardinals early in the second half, as Jordan Thompson tied the game with 0.5 seconds left in the first half, and Damian DiDomenico gave Plattsburgh a 6-5 lead less than three minutes into the third quarter. But the Saints responded by closing out the game on an 8-1 run to put the Cardinals away.

Senior attack Dan Ritchie started the run with a goal off a rebound, and Feine gave the Saints a 7-6 lead with a sidearm shot 12-yards out. Senior attack Tim Loveless scored next off a failed Plattsburgh clearing attempt, and Peter Dolan made a nice move to beat a defender and beat the Cardinal goaltender with a bounce shot into the top right corner to give St. Lawrence a 9-6 lead.

Feine added a man-up goal from in deep on a nice feed from Loveless for his 100th goal. He started the fourth quarter with a rocket from 15 yards out into the top left corner of the net, and Alex Moore scored a man-up goal on a failed clear to give the Saints a 12-6 lead with less than ten minutes to play.

Dolan finished with three goals, while Moore added two goals and an assist. Loveless had a goal and two assists, and defensive midfielder Timmy Barnhorst intercepted a pass and broke free for his second goal of the season in the first half.
