The Game Story:
Yonkers, N.Y. – The College of Mount Saint Vincent Men's Lacrosse team dropped its second straight league contest on Saturday afternoon following a 15-5 loss to visiting Richard Stockton. Five different players scored a goal for the Dolphins and sophomore net minder Kyle Kalibat (Oceanside, N.Y.) made a career-high 19 saves.

After Stockton got on the board to take a 1-0 lead nearly six minutes into the tilt, Ahmed Ajao (Brooklyn, N.Y.) evened the score with his 11th goal of the season just two minutes later.

Following the Ajao marker, the Ospreys went on to score the next five goals to take a 6-1 lead into halftime. Drew Wright netted a pair of goals over the run and joined Dave Soule with two goals in the first 30 minutes.

John Petito (Staten Island, N.Y.) would bring the Dolphins to within 6-2 with a tally to open the third period and broke a string of nearly 32 game minutes without a score. The Dolphins would pull to within four goals three more times in the game, but a seven goal fourth quarter from the Ospreys sealed the victory.

Richard Stockton featured eight different goal scorers and was led by Brian Santoleri who potted five goals and picked up three groundballs. Soule, Wright and Wade Vesselka each scored a pair of goals in the game and Nick Bologno closed out a strong afternoon with a goal and five assists.

Euegen Isola was dominant in face-offs on Saturday after going 16-for-23 on the day and also picking up 13 groundballs. Cael Sebor paced the defense with a pair of caused turnovers for the Ospreys.
