The Game Story:
CHESTERTOWN, MD -- Freshman attackman Chris Read (Baltimore, MD/Boys Latin)
scored four goals and junior goalie Kevin Thibadeau (Cheshire, CT/Avon Old
Farms) made 16 saves as eighth-ranked host Washington College defeated
visiting Haverford College, 8-5, in a Centennial Conference men's lacrosse
game this afternoon at Kibler Field. The Shoremen improved to 7-3 overall
and 5-1 in conference play with the win, while the Fords fell to 8-5 and
6-3.

Read gave the Shoremen a 1-0 lead with 8:28 left in the first period, but
Ben Reed tied things up for the Fords with 5:40 left in the period.
Sophomore midfielder Mike Hughes (Pasadena, MD/Mount St. Joseph) and
freshman midfielder Andrew Generazio (Springfield, VA/West
Springfield/Bridgton, ME) fired in goals with 4:24 and 0:18 left in the
first, respectively to give Washington a 3-1 advantage, but Max Tcheyan
scored for Haverford with two seconds on the clock to cut the lead to 3-2.
Haverford scored the only goal of the second quarter when Mike Distler fired
in a shot off a feed from Shane Hafer with 5:19 remaining before halftime to
tie the score at 3-3.

Washington senior attackman Jon Spivey (Timonium, MD/Dulaney) scored the
only goal of the third quarter off an assist from sophomore attackman Kevin
Nolan (Clark, NJ/A.L. Johnson) with 5:48 remaining to put the Shoremen back
in front, 4-3. Junior midfielder Ryan Morrison (Manhasset,

12:15 on the clock and Read scored his second goal of the game with 10:52
remaining to push the lead to 6-3.

Haverford rallied as Matt Thorne-Fitzgerald scored with 9:40 left in the
fourth and Reed added his second goal of the day with 8:24 to play, cutting
the lead to 6-5. The Shoremen held the Fords scoreless the rest of the way,
however, and Read added two insurance goals with 4:37 and 3:22 remaining,
respectively, to provide the final margin.

allowed in his last two games. K.C. Peterson made 13 saves for the Fords.

Washington held a 34-28 advantage in shots in the game and a 33-27 edge in
ground balls. Generazio scooped up a game-high seven ground balls for the
Shoremen.
