The Game Story:
ANNVILLE, Pa. - Lebanon Valley rode a strong defensive effort and two-goal games by freshmen Jordan Mayr, Malik Pedroso, and Ryan Leonard as it breezed past Shenandoah, 8-2, on Tuesday.

The Dutchmen (2-2) did not allow the Hornets (0-6) a first-half goal as they jumped out to a 4-0 lead and built upon it in the second half. Bryan Lockward made 10 saves while allowing just one goal to pick up the win.

Shenandoah dominated face-offs by winning 13 of 14, but LVC's defense neutralized the advantage by generating 25 Hornet turnovers and limiting them to just 10 shots in the first half and 23 overall. LVC also disrupted eight of Shenandoah's 22 clear attempts.

Pedroso started the scoring off Ian Schmid's feed just over three minutes into the game, and Mayr made it 2-0 at the end of the first quarter with a goal from Alex Beard. Defender Ryan Lanigan too advantage to score on the run to open the second quarter, and Leonard made it 4-0 midway through the second with a man-up goal from Andrew Dennison.
SU's Sean Mack got a goal back late in the third quarter to break the shutout, but Leonard matched it with his second off Jordan Mayr's assists with three minutes left. That goal sparked a 4-0 run, with Pedroso, Mayr, and CJ Adams all scoring unassisted in the fourth quarter before Gregory Love got a consolation strike in the final minutes.

LVC converted one of five extra-man opportunities, while killing off both of their penalties - both in the fourth quarter. The Dutchmen held a 31-23 shots advantage.

Lockward made 10 saves to improve to 2-1, with Ethan Hilberg playing the final 2:12 and making a save. Andrew Fleischmann made 12 saves in the loss for the Hornets. Defensively, Lanigan and Ryan Kruter led LVC, with Lanigan causing four turnovers with three ground balls and Kruter causing three with two pickups.
