Salisbury vs. Saint Lawrence
March 22, 2006
The Game Story:
SALISBURY, MD * The Salisbury University men's lacrosse team took their
annual spring break trip and defeated the Saints of St. Lawrence University,
9-7, from Sanford, Florida. Senior Mike Hurley (Cambridge, MD/Cambridge-SD)
scored four goals and added two assists to lead Salisbury to their NCAA
record, 58th consecutive win.

The Sea Gulls and Saints battled hard through the first 30 minutes of the
game, as each team was able to find the back of the net three times in the
first quarter and twice in the second to go into the break tied at five.
The last time Salisbury was tied at halftime was the 2005 National
Championship game, as the Sea Gulls and Panthers were knotted at five.

Nothing came easy for Salisbury in the second half either. The Sea Gulls
only managed two goals in each of the last two quarters, but it was enough
to hang on, and hold off the Saints.

Senior Jimmy Creighton (Huntington, NY/Huntington) scored two goals for the
Gulls while freshman Kylor Berkman (Salisbury, MD/Parkside) added one gold
and one assist. Juniors Matt Dassinger (Reisterstown, MD/Franklin) and Eric
Bishop (Media, PA/Penncrest) totaled three points on the afternoon, each
scoring a goal, and Bishop adding an assist.

Salisbury's defense was stout when they were a man down; the defense helped
goalie Max Zarchin (Annapolis, MD/St. Mary's), 10 saves, and allowed only
one goal on five man down opportunities.

The Sea Gulls return home from their Florida trip to play host to their
Capital Athletic Conference foe, the Spartans of York College (PA) on
Tuesday, March 28th. The game is scheduled for a 3:30 p.m. start.
