April 16, 2005
The Game Story:
MEDFORD ^S Sophomore Brett Holm (Longmeadow, MA) scored three goals in less
than a five-minute span in the third quarter to ignite a Tufts University
run that led to a 13-6 victory over Colby College in NESCAC men^Ys lacrosse
action on Saturday afternoon at Bello Field.

Leading just 5-4 at the half against Colby, which is winless in NESCAC,
Tufts scored six unanswered goals in the third quarter to take a commanding
11-4 lead. Holm^Ys three goals, which is one more than he had scored in the
team^Ys previous eight games this season, led the way. The victory stopped a
three-game losing streak for #14 Tufts (6-3, 3-3 NESCAC). Colby, which
dropped to 2-7 and 0-5 in NESCAC, got two goals apiece from sophomores Ryan
Scott (Columbia, NJ) and Dan Schupack (Cheshire, CT).

Jumbo senior tri-captain Bryan Griffin (West Islip, NY) returned to the
starting lineup for the first time in five games following a knee injury. He
figured in six goals with one scored and five assisted. The Jumbos also got
great production from senior tri-captain Devin Clarke (Ridgewood, NJ), who
finished with three goals and an assist.

Underdog Colby held its own in the first half, taking leads of 2-1 and 4-3
on a goal by Schupack at 8:41 of the second quarter. Billy Granger (East
Setauket, NY) and Mark Warner (Wading River, NY) closed the half with goals
for Tufts, which with the six goals to start the third quarter made for an
eight-goal Tufts run overall.

Warner scored two goals for the Jumbos. Andy Starr (Weston, MA) had 14 saves
in 38 minutes of play in the Tufts net, while Luke Chicco (Merrick, NY) made
seven stops in 22 minutes for Tufts.

Junior Mule Jeff Miller (Marshfield, MA) had nine of his 11 saves in the
first half for Colby.
