The Game Story:
St. Mary's City, Md. -- Senior attacker Chris Lucas scored four goals and added three assists in leading the sixth-ranked Tigers of Hampden-Sydney College to a 12-7 non-conference road win over the Seahawks of St. Mary's College on Saturday afternoon. With the win, the Tigers improve to 3-0 on the season, while the Seahawks fall to 0-2 with the loss.

The Seahawks held a 4-3 advantage after the first period of play. The Tigers opened the scoring just 39 seconds into the contest when junior attacker Chris Schaaf scored off of an assist from senior midfielder Jason Rostan. Hampden-Sydney would then make it 2-0 a little over one minute later on a goal from junior midfielder Matt Fassnacht, with the assist credited to Lucas. The Seahawks stormed back with three unanswered goals of their own. Senior midfielder Wayne Hickok (Baltimore, MD/Park School) scored unassisted to cut the deficit to 2-1. The Seahawks would take a 3-2 lead with two goals in six seconds. Junior midfielder Terry Hagerty (Columbia, MD/Wilde Lake) scored unassisted and sophomore attacker Shane Baxter (Woodbine, MD/Salisbury University) scored off of an assist from junior midfielder Alex Redmond (Baltimore, MD/Gilman). The two teams then traded goals to end the period.

In the second period, the Tigers broke the game open with six unanswered goals to take a 9-4 lead into the half. As a result of an untimely unsportsmanlike penalty call on the Seahawks, the Tigers opened the period with two extra-man goals. The tide seemed to turn dramatically, as the Seahawks could not answer and saw the Tigers add four more goals in the period. The Seahawks scored the only goal in the third period on a goal from sophomore attacker Kevin Whalen (Bethesda, MD/Georgetown Prep) to cut the deficit to 9-5 heading into the fourth period of play.

In the fourth period, the Tigers out-scored the Seahawks 3-2 and maintained possession throughout most of the quarter, keeping the Seahawks from providing any last period heroics. Junior Jeremy Bull started and played all 60 minutes in net for the Tigers. He allowed seven goals while facing 24 total shots and made ten saves in the contest.

For the Seahawks, sophomore goalkeeper Miguel Snyder went the distance allowing 12 goals on 27 total shots. He made six saves in the contest. The Seahawks (0-2) will next be in action on Wednesday, March 12, when they travel to Gettysburg College for a non-conference contest. The game is scheduled to begin at 3:30 p.m.
