Mcdaniel vs. Salisbury

The Game Story:
McDaniel College (4-6) became the 42nd victim as Salisbury University (13-0) rolled through Westminster to extend the nation’s longest lacrosse winning streak. A pair of Salisbury five-goal runs sealed McDaniel’s fate.

The Terror got the early jump when Steve Hoffman hooked up with Matt Buschman (pictured above) to give McDaniel a 1-0 lead with 8:25 in the first quarter, but with 4:48 left in the first, Salisbury’s offense finally stirred to life. Four different Sea Gulls carried a five-goal, three minute run on the McDaniel net. Chris Phillips scored both of his goals of the game in that stretch to give the visitors a 5-1 lead.

McDaniel stopped the bleeding with 1:00 in the first period when Rob Weaver scored a man-up goal following a Salisbury penalty for too many men on the field. It was the only goal the Terror scored on its eight extra man opportunities, including a three-minute stretch to open the second quarter when Dan Boyer was nabbed for an illegal stick.

Buschman’s second goal of the game midway through the second quarter got McDaniel within a pair. His Terror would get no closer.

Salisbury broke off another five goal run on either side of the halftime break to take a commanding 10-3 lead. Four different players factored in that run as well.

Eric Bishop led Salisbury’s attack with a hat trick and an assist. Phillips, Boyer, and Justin Smith each scored a pair and assisted on another in the game.

Salisbury out-shot McDaniel 40-35, with the Gulls getting 24 on net to McDaniel’s 18. Salisbury keeper, Dan Korpen, answered 13 of the Terror shots that managed to find the cage. Chad Schell turned away seven in three quarters before being lifted in favor of Ben Yingling. The sophomore turned aside three shots and let in two in the final quarter.

Salisbury’s Sean White gathered a game-high eight ground balls. Brendan Lewis scooped up six for McDaniel.
