April 1, 2009
The Game Story:
SELINSGROVE, Pa. -- Senior midfielder Greg Norris (St. Catharines, Ontario/Denis Morris) exploded for three goals and a game-high four assists to help lead host Susquehanna University to a 17-11 non-conference win over The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey at Sassafras Fields on April 1.

Norris (pictured) leads Susquehanna (5-5 overall) with 21 goals, 16 assists and 37 points this season. Not to be outdone, senior midfielder Brett Brown (Cape Elizabeth, Maine/Cape Elizabeth) and freshman midfielder Matt Weiner (Bound Brook, N.J./Bridgewater-Raritan Regional) both tallied four goals and one assist against Richard Stockton (5-3 overall).

SU's junior midfielder Fred Morse (Rochester, N.Y./Pittsford Sutherland) added two goals and two assists. Teammate and freshman attack Luke Delavan (Madison, N.J./Madison) had one goal and one assist. Freshman midfielder Rory Meagher (Allentown, Pa./Allentown Central Catholic) and sophomore midfielder Henry Weismantel (Chatham, N.J./Chatham) both notched a pair of assists. Meagher also collected five ground balls. Scoring one goal each for Susquehanna were freshman attacks Dustin Breakey (Mechanicsburg, Pa./Cumberland Valley) and Billy Spack (Arlington, Va./Yorktown) and junior midfielder Tom Jakubowski (Royersford, Pa./Spring-Ford Area).

Though he didn't collect a point, sophomore midfielder Ryan Oakes (North Yarmouth, Maine/Cheverus) had as much to do with the Crusaders win as anybody. Oakes was dominant at times, winning 18 of 28 faceoffs and collecting a game-high nine ground balls. Sophomore defender Jimmy Warburton (Chatham, N.J./Chatham) had five ground balls.

Freshman Jordan Daney (Wynnewood, Pa./Lower Merion) earned his first collegiate win in goal by making five saves in 27 minutes, 42 seconds of the first half. He shared time in that half with freshman Bill Davis (Hilliard, Ohio/Hilliard Davidson), who was not forced to make a save in 2:18. Fellow freshman Anthony Maiorella (Mountain Lakes, N.J./Mountain Lakes) was outstanding while closing things out in the second half. In the final 30 minutes, Maiorella made 10 saves on 12 shots.

SU always managed to stay one step ahead of the Ospreys and never trailed. The Crusaders notched two very timely goals by scoring with exactly one second left in both the first and second quarters. Both of those goals were from the crosse of Brown. The first last-second goal put SU ahead, 4-3. The latter made it 10-9 at halftime.

Susquehanna scored the only goal of the third quarter and then all but owned the fourth. The Crusaders outscored Richard Stockton, 6-2, in the final frame, including the final five goals of the contest and four in just 1:58.
