The Game Story:

St. Mary's City, MD -- The St. Mary's College men's lacrosse team opened up their 2006
season on a high note with an impressive 19-8 non-conference home victory over
Farmingdale State on Tuesday afternoon. Senior attacker Dave Mueller (Baltimore,
MD/North County) tied the school record for total points in the contest with 11, after
scoring seven goals and adding four assists.

The Seahawks opened the contest a bit sluggish and spotted the Rams (0-1) an early 2-0
lead just 1:11 into the contest. St. Mary's (1-0) responded from their slow start and
scored the next eight goals to take an 8-2 lead after the first period of play.

Farmingdale State started the second period with a goal from Ryan LaFlare, his first
of three in the contest, to reduce the deficit to 8-3, but that would be as close as
the Rams would get the remainder of the afternoon. The Seahawks answered with the next
six goals in the contest to open up a 14-3 lead through the middle of the third
period.

LaFlare led the Rams with his three goals while three other players all added one goal
apiece. Kevin Sharkey added two assists on the afternoon for Farmingdale.

Mueller led the Seahawks with his seven goals and four assists in tying the school
record for total points in a contest. The original mark was set by Matt Davis with
three goals and eight assists against Widener back on April 12, 1990. Sophomore
attacker Pat Oliphant (Chatham, NJ/Chatham) added four goals and one assist with
senior attacker Pat Donovan (Arnold, MD/Spaulding) contributing with three goals and
four assists in the win.

Junior Chris Hardgrove took the loss in net for the Rams. Hardgrove allowed 15 goals
through three periods and made ten saves in the contest. He was relieved by junior
Kevin Winters at the start of the fourth period. Winters allowed four goals with two
saves in 15 minutes of action.

Junior Rich Barr (Salisbury, MD/Worcester Prep) earned the win in net for the
Seahawks. Barr allowed six goals in 51:50 of action while making two saves. Junior

5:20 and allowed one goal with one save while Woodford played the final 2:50 in net
and allowed one goal.
