Salisbury vs. York
April 13, 2010
The Game Story:
SALISBURY, Md. The No. 1 Salisbury University men's lacrosse team wrapped up its home portion of regular-season conference play with a win on a soggy Tuesday evening at Sea Gull Stadium, taking down Capital Athletic Conference foe York (Pa.) College 19-4 before a crowd of 167 fans.

The Spartans (7-7, 4-2 CAC) netted the game's first goal just 28 seconds into the game, but York would score no more in the first half. Salisbury (15-0, 6-0 CAC) netted five goals in the first quarter and tacked on another seven in the second quarter to take a 12-1 advantage going into the second half of play. Senior midfielder Mike Von Kamecke (Winter Park, Fla.) led scoring for Gulls in the first 30 minutes, netting a hat trick and dishing out one assist.

Salisbury never looked back as its offense continued to churn out goals. That, in combination with a bulletproof Sea Gull defense, led to the second-lowest scoring total for an opposing team this season; just three days ago, Salisbury held CAC opponent Hood College to just two goals. To credit the Salisbury defense even further, York was 0-for-6 in man-up goal opportunities on the night. Von Kamecke added one more goal to his first-half total off of an extra-man opportunity in the fourth quarter to give him a game-high four goals for the game. Senior attackman Mike Winter (Port Washington, N.Y.) wasn't far behind in scoring for the maroon and gold, netting three goals on three well-placed shots.

Between the pipes, junior goalkeeper Johnny Rodriguez (Gambrills, Md.) earned the win as he made eight crucial saves, playing a total of 39 minutes. In addition to Rodriguez, juniors Tim Swinburn (Swarthmore, Pa.) and Billy McNamara (Ellicott City, Md.), along with freshman Mitch Meredith (Annapolis, Md.), saw time in the cage.

The maroon and gold will travel to Wakefield High School on Thursday, April 15 to square off against Marymount (Va.) University at 8:15 p.m. The contest will mark the last regular-season CAC game for Salisbury; with tonight's win, the Sea Gulls lock up a first-round bye in the CAC tournament, which begins on April 18.
