Sea Gulls still flying unscathed after 13-7 victory over Washington College

Washington College had a couple of nice chances to get on the board first, highlighted by a great move by Andrew Ostrusky who beat his man from the left GLE topside and fired a shot that pinged off the near pipe. Sophomore midi Brett Yoder of the Gulls scored the games first two goals, the first on a nice individual effort, the second a quick finish off a feed from Ryan Rohde. Boyer notched his first of four for the night when he received a pass in front of the goal in transition and spun past one Shoreman, then got crushed with his back to the goal by a second defender while flinging the goal blindly over his shoulder at the goal – the ball went top shelf in true Boyer/shenanigan fashion. The Shoremen got on the board late in the 1st when longpole Tim Kerr ripped a shot past Max Zarchin in transition.

The second quarter was all Salisbury as the Gulls ran off five unanswered goals to blow the game open and take an 8-1 lead. Mike Hurley got things started on a nice dodge and finish. Yoder completed his hat trick just 22 minutes into the game when he and Rohde connected for the second time. Jimme Creighton tallied the next two, one off a Mike Edwards feed. An EMO opportunity led to the 5th goal in the run when Rohde notched his third assist of the half when he found a cutting Boyer who drove it home. The Shoremen couldn’t get any breaks in the second as Salisbury’s defense applied good pressure and really ignited the transition game. They managed to stop the bleeding late, when Mike Sutter scored on a kamikaze dodge into the Salisbury D, scoring with just 0:04 left in the half. Unfortunately, the damage had been done and Salisbury took an 8-2 lead into halftime.

The Gulls pushed the lead to seven goals when Boyer scooped and scored some garbage early in the third. The Shoremen quickly answered though, when Sutter found Chris Read to make the game 9-3. Another WAC penalty led to a Salisbury goal, when Hurley ripped home his second of the night. The Shoremen went on a three goal run at this point, starting with another nice feed from Sutter – this time to Same Lane. Ostrusky and Jimmy Kielek both scored on nice individual efforts to bring the Shoremen within four. With 31 seconds left in the quarter, the Gulls scored their 11th goal when Creighton completed his hat-trick when Edwards found him for a second time.

The Shoremen got their final goal of the night early in the fourth when Ostrusky made a sick move to get topside on his man coming from left behind before finishing high past Zarchin. The Gulls started to take the air out of the ball at this point, eating up chunks of clock and shortening the game. They scored two goals, capitalizing on desperate Shoremen pressure. Boyer scored his fourth of the game off a look from J.B. Sheridan and Edwards collected his third assist when he found Eric Bishop with under four minutes to play.

The Sea Gulls are still the team to beat in DIII, maybe this May someone will knock them off… Don’t bet on it.

More pictures coming…

When I went to SU I went to the War each year. I never saw that many people at Seagull Stadium. It was an awesome event last night. You two need to get off the shore every once in a while.

Scenic?

I like da bury as much as anyone, but to call it Scenic is a bit of an overstatement. The only scenes you catch in Salisbury is the occasional crack addict on Ohio or Hazel St.

Crack head

I agree with the above comment on the crack heads, there is nothing scenic about salisbury. Maybe its the smell of the chickens that got to you? I believe Salisbury University is trying to suck the life and fun from the University. First they cancel feild day (day of partying and local bands), and now they move War on the shore to Ravens Stadium, because of the conflicts with the fans last year.

Cottle (SU alum) called up the Sultan and said, hey Jimbo, what do you think of this idea? And Berkman went with it.

In theory it was a good idea, but it wasn't too spectacular. Bring it back to the shore.

Keep it in Bmore, but

I think it would be better served in Baltimore but apart of a better lacrosse weekend. Keep it during the ACC championship weekend but throw it in between a couple games. I know they couldn't do it this year but it would give more exposure to the game. Playing it after a Dematha/Ganzaga game is not the exposure they were looking for. It basically said they aren't worthy of playing the same day as D1. I dont think it was done right this year but it could definitely draw bigger crowds.
