Washington And Jefferson vs. Medaille
April 23, 2005
The Game Story:
WASHINGTON, Pa. -- Freshman attackers Ed Farruggia (Cincinnati,
Ohio/Indian Hill) and Tim Huckestein (Allison Park, Pa./North
Allegheny) combined for seven goals and six assists to lead
Washington & Jefferson to its second-straight victory as the
Presidents pummeled Medaille, 16-4, on Saturday afternoon at
Alexandre Stadium.



The win coupled with last Saturday's 18-13 victory over Wittenberg
gives the Presidents their first two-game win streak in school
history. W&J began varsity lacrosse in 2002.



Washington & Jefferson (2-8) netted four goals in the first seven
minutes to grab the early lead. Medaille (0-10) scored at the 4:57
mark to make it a 4-1 game, but W&J ended the first quarter with four
consecutive scores to assume an 8-1 advantage after 15 minutes of
play. Farruggia and Huckestein both had a pair of goals in the first
period.



W&J then scored the first four goals of the second quarter to take a
12-1 lead and the Presidents cruised in the second half to the
12-goal triumph.



Farruggia, the second-leading goal scorer in Division III, posted
four goals and three assists, while Huckestein added three scores and
three assists. Freshman attacker Mike Sharrio (Bradford, N.H./Bishop
Brady) recorded a career-high four goals and also handed out one
assist.



Freshman midfielder Russ Kalkstein (Baltimore, Md./Loyola) had three
goals and one assist. Kalkstein also won 19 of the 23 face-offs he
took and finished with a game-high 14 ground balls. Freshman
midfielders Justin Beckman (Baltimore, Md./Loyola) and Chris Vogel
(Pittsburgh, Pa./Fox Chapel) rounded out the W&J scorers with one
goal each. Freshman goalie Spooky Reid (Franklin, Tenn./University
School of Nashville) totaled eight saves for the Presidents, who held
a 50-22 edge in shots.



The Mavericks were led by sophomore midfielder Jon Zak's (Elma,
N.Y./Iroquois) one goal and one assist. Sophomore Chris Bova (Elma,
N.Y./Iroquois) racked up 13 saves in the loss.



W&J rounds out its 2005 season next Saturday as it hosts Ohio
Wesleyan at 7:00 pm.
