|The Game Story:|
|SALISBURY, Md. * The #1 ranked Salisbury University Men's Lacrosse team notched its 59th|
consecutive victory by defeating Capital Athletic Conference rival, York College. Salisbury
improved to 10-0 on the season with the 18-5 win, and they handed York its first conference
loss, dropping the Spartans to 6-3 overall and 3-1 in the CAC.
Salisbury found themselves in a battle in the early stages of the contest. York won the
opening face-off and scored with that possession seconds later on a Brendan Hopkins tally.
But, Dan Boyer (Millersville, MD/Mt. Saint Joseph's) had the answer for York's quick start.
Boyer scored three goals in a row to give SU a 3-1 lead after one period. Boyer finished
the game with five goals, giving him a team-high 34 on the season.
The Spartans stuck with the top-ranked Sea Gulls through the second period as well. Heading
into the locker room, Salisbury only led 6-3, and the Sea Gulls were behind in the face-off
battle. However, the third period was a different story. The Sea Gulls dominated play,
winning 8 out of 12 face-offs and holding York to one shot. Eric Bishop (Media,
PA/Penncrest) provided the spark with five goals and two assists in the third period alone.
Bishop finished with nine points total, six goals and three helpers. Ryan Rohde (Glenmoore,
PA/Malvern Prep) did his share of offensive damage with a goal and two assists, and Jimmy
Creighton (Huntington, NY/Huntington) had a game-high four assists. Creighton setup a
beautiful score in the third when he cleanly picked a loose ball and fired it to a
wide-open Bishop in front of the net, all in one motion.
The Sea Gulls used their ten goal outburst in the third to put the Spartans away. Max
Zarchin (Annapolis, MD/St. Mary's) picked up the win for Salisbury, stopping five Spartan
shots. Kylor Berkman (Salisbury, MD/Parkside) led the Sea Gulls with seven ground balls. SU
went 24-25 in clears, transitioning to offense for scoring opportunities on several
occasions. Long Pole Midfielder, Chase Caruso (Huntington, NY/Huntington) scored the
eventual game-winning goal on a clear that he took for an unassisted goal in the second.
Josh Papsan paced the York offense with two goals. Matt Keeler made 19 saves for the
Spartans and kept the game close for the first half.
Salisbury travels to Gettysburg, PA to face a tough road test on Saturday. As the winning
streak continues, Salisbury is advancing up the all-time list of consecutive victories for
all sports in every division. The Sea Gull Men's Lacrosse team currently ranks in the top
ten in all-time longest winning streaks.
