March 30, 2005
The Game Story:
ALLENTOWN, Pa. - Brian Pryor (Dallas, TX/St. Mark's) collected a
game-high six points, Jared Harriman (Yarmouth, ME/Yarmouth) scored a
career-best four goals and ninth-ranked Gettysburg defeated
Muhlenberg 13-7 in Centennial Conference (CC) men's lacrosse action
on Wednesday.

Pryor dished out three goals and handed out three
assists, scoring twice in the Bullets' six-goal first quarter, then
completing the hat trick after the Mules (5-2, 0-1 CC) had pulled
within 7-6 early in the third quarter.

Harriman sealed the victory with four straight goals in
an 18-minute span of the second half, helping Gettysburg (5-2, 2-0
CC) improve to 8-0 all-time against Muhlenberg.

Evan Gallant (Lutherville, MD/Loyola Blakefield) and
Kevin Freehill (Baldwin, NY/Baldwin) each scored twice for the
Bullets while Pat Vaughan (Cockeysville, MD/Loyola Blakefield)
recorded 11 saves.

Kyle Farris paced the Mules with three goals while Sean
Toohill added two goals and one assist.

Gettysburg never trailed after erasing an early 2-1
deficit with a five-goal outburst, but needed a 6-0 second-half run
to put the Mules away.

Muhlenberg took its only lead of the night on goals from
Kyle Hart and Farris in a span of 42 seconds. Freehill followed 1
minute, 11 seconds later to knot the game at 2 and Gallant cashed in
an extra-man opportunity to put the Bullets ahead 3-2 with fewer than
five minutes elapsed in the game.

Pryor struck twice to make it 5-2 and Chris Renzi
(Fairport, NY/Fairport) added a goal with 12 seconds left in the
quarter for a four-goal lead.

Unfazed, the Mules got two goals from Farris and one from
Toohill to pull within 6-5. Freehill restored Gettysburg's two-goal
edge by scoring unassisted with 1:48 left in the half.

Toohill opened the third quarter with a goal to cut the
Bullets' lead to 7-6, but Muhlenberg wouldn't score again until the
game's final minute. In the interim, Gettysburg rattled off six
straight goals to clinch the win.

Pryor finished his hat trick to make it 8-6 and Gallant
followed off a feed from Harriman 37 seconds later. Harriman then
netted the game's next four goals, tallying two unassisted markers
and two off assists from Pryor for a 13-6 lead.

The Mules' James Robinson closed the scoring with 44
seconds left.

Muhlenberg goalie Gavin Crescenzo made 15 saves while
facing 40 Bullet shots.

T.J Liberto (Arnold, MD/St. Mary's) also scored for
Gettysburg while Renzi won 13 of 21 face-offs and scooped a game-high
nine ground balls. Pryor, who has 14 goals and 11 assists in his last
five games, assumed the team lead for goals (15), assists (13) and
points (28).
