Salisbury vs. Marymount
February 21, 2006
The Game Story:
SALISBURY, Md. * In Salisbury's 51 game winning streak, the Men's Lacrosse team has shutout
an opponent only twice, including today's 29-0 rout of Marymount. The Sea Gulls have won
three National Championships in this same span. So, the only thing more elusive than the
title is a shutout victory. The last time Salisbury pulled off the extremely rare feat was
against Catholic in 2003 to start the season. That shutout of Catholic was not only the last
time the Sea Gulls have done that, but it was also their first win in their current win
streak.

Dan Boyer (Millersville, MD/Mt. St. Joseph's) and Ryan Rohde (Glenmoore, PA/Malvern Prep)
each scored a game-high six goals, with Rohde tallying one more assist than Boyer to finish
with an extraordinary nine point game. Mike Hurley (Cambridge, MD/Cambridge-SD) was not far
behind the leaders as he posted five goals and two assists of his own. Five other Sea Gulls
finished with three or more points including Eric Bishop (Media, PA/Penncrest), Kylor Berkman
(Salisbury, MD/Parkside), Jimmy Creighton (Huntington, NY/Huntington), Matt Dasinger
(Reisterstown, MD/Franklin), and Brett Yoder (Parkton, MD/Hereford).

Perhaps the most dominate stat of the game was face-offs. Ryan DeRose (Oswego, NY/Oswego) won
14-15 and Ryan Brown (Portland, ME/Bridgton Academy) secured 9-12. Salisbury's ability to win
the draws gave them many more possessions than Marymount. The Saints were forced to play
defense for much of the game.

On defense, Chase Caruso (Huntington, NY/Huntington) and Eric Fleegle (Greensboro, MD/St.
Peter & Paul) were up to the task when Marymount entered the offensive zone. Caruso had a
team-high four takeaways, and goalkeeper Fleegle stopped the Saints best chance on a
point-blank shot in the third quarter.

Alex Hammer stopped eight Salisbury shots to help the Saints, but the excellent offensive
setups by the Sea Gulls often left them in front of the goal, uncontested.

Salisbury University returns to action with a CAC match-up at Catholic on Friday, February
24th. The Sea Gulls will be going for their 52nd straight victory when they visit the
Cardinals.
