Wooster vs. Wittenberg
April 12, 2003
The Game Story:
The College of Wooster controlled much of the action in its Saturday afternoon game (April 12) with Wittenberg University and steadily pulled away for an 11-5 victory, and break a tie between the two rivals in the North Coast Athletic Conference standings.

Wooster (5-4, 2-2 NCAC) outshot its visitors 37-17 for the game, but only held a 5-2 lead early in the third quarter, thanks to Wittenberg goalie Kyle Prussing, who made 11 saves in the first half alone.

Then, the Scots' offense, which had been paced by Steve Burton's three scores in the first half, found its rhythm, firing in five unanswered goals during the remainder of the third to put the game away (10-2).

The Tigers (4-5, 1-3 NCAC) had a three-goal string midway through the fourth quarter, and Wooster capped the scoring with an unassisted tally by Mike MacMaster.

MacMaster led all players on the day with six points on two goals and four assists, while complementing him were Burton's three goals and Brady Ward's pair of scores. Ward had an assist, and Wooster's other multiple-point scorer was Shawn Handy (one goal, one assist).

Defensively, Prussing finished with 17 saves, while the Scots' Courter Shimeall only had to make six to preserve the win.

On Wednesday (April 16), Wooster will travel to Pa., where it will face Washington & Jefferson College (3-5) in a non-conference affair, starting at 4:30 p.m.
