March 4, 2009
The Game Story:
WESTMINSTER, Md. Ė Mike Hatton (Corning, N.Y./Corning East) recorded a career-high five goals to go with one assist, leading McDaniel to a 10-7 victory over Widener in non-conference menís lacrosse action on Wednesday.

Kenny McHugh (Westminster, Md./Calvert Hall) notched a career-best 21 saves in goal for the Green Terror (2-0), who were outshot 44-29 in the game. The 21 stops were the most saves for a McDaniel keeper since Chuck Nolan made a program-record 34 stops against Hampden-Sydney on Mar. 16, 1983.

Johnny Casey led the Pride (0-3) with three goals.

Trailing 7-6 after Mike Holtz gave Widener the lead 2:39 into the final quarter, the Green Terror ripped off the gameís final four goals to remain perfect on the young season.

In a man-up situation, Hatton found Gibbs Preston (Baltimore, Md./McDonogh) for the juniorís team-leading seventh tally of the season to knot the game with 10:17 to play.

Just 47 seconds later, Deane Mellor (Chadds Ford, Pa./Wilminton Friends School) flipped the ball to Hatton, who found the lower-left corner of the net to give McDaniel a one-goal edge.

Kyle Hadden (Moorestown, N.J./Moorestown) capped the 1-minute, 49-second flurry with his second coast-to-coast goal to stretch the advantage to two.

Bill Warner (Yardley, Pa./LaSalle) tacked on an insurance goal in a wide-open net in the gameís final minute to help the Green Terror finish 3-for-4 on extra-man opportunities.

After Warner staked McDaniel to an early 1-0 lead, Shawn DeHaven and Cory Malampy scored 1 minute, 46 seconds apart to turn the one-goal deficit into a one-goal advantage.

A Hatton man-up tally late in the first quarter and Hadden goal midway through the second gave the Green Terror a 3-2 lead at halftime.

Hatton quickly stretched the lead to 4-2, finishing a Preston feed 1:18 into the third quarter but Widener scored the next three to take a 5-2 lead. Casey had the final two markers in the run.

Hatton evened the game at 5-all with a solo marker before a Casey extra-man tally once again gave the Pride a one-goal advantage.

Hatton once again knotted the score, hitting with 4.3 seconds remaining in the quarter off a Warner feed.

Jed Barnes (Severna Park, Md./Severna Park) went 8-for-15 on faceoffs and picked up three ground balls. Matt Mummert (Dillsburg, Pa./Northern) added five ground balls and a caused turnover while Hadden had two ground balls and two caused turnovers to go with his two goals.
