March 18, 2005
The Game Story:
MEDFORD ^S Senior tri-captain Devin Clarke (Ridgewood, NJ) scored five goals
as the Tufts University men^Ys lacrosse team earned a 16-8 victory over
Endicott College on the Bello Field turf Friday. The game was a meeting
between the #2 in New England Jumbos and the tied for #10 Gulls.

Senior tri-captain Bryan Griffin (West Islip, NY) became Tufts^Y all-time
leading scorer in the game with three goals and three assists. He entered
the contest tied with Dan Kollar (1998-2001) atop the Jumbos scoring list
with 191 points and set the record with the game^Ys second goal at 11:55 of
the first period. He currently sits at 197 career points (119 goals, 78
assists).

Tufts scored the game^Ys first five goals and looked like they were going to
run away with it. Endicott was able to slow the Jumbos down and cut the
margin to 5-2 by the end of the first period as sophomore Dan Ryan
(Billerica, MA) scored a goal and set one up.

The Jumbos regained a five-goal advantage by halftime at 8-3 with the
defense allowing just one Endicott goal and Griffin tallying a goal and an
assist in the second period. Tufts really put the game away in the third
quarter, out-scoring the Gulls 5-1 to lead 13-4. Clarke, who was shut out in
the team^Ys opener versus MIT, had two of the Jumbo goals in the third.
Endicott scored four times in the final period, including senior Sam
Chidester^Ys (Eliot, ME) team-high third of the game. Jumbo sophomore Mark
Warner (Wading River, NY) scored twice in the fourth to cap a six-point game
(four goals, two assists).

Senior tri-captain Luke Chicco (Merrick, NY) went the distance in goal for
Tufts, making 11 saves. Junior Ryan Walsh (Weymouth, MA) had 12 saves in the
Endicott cage. Senior quad-captain Marc MacMillan (Weymouth, MA) finished
with three assists for the Gulls.
