Gulls Crush OWU 21-6

SALISBURY, MD * The Salisbury University men's lacrosse team extended their nation-long win streak to 55 games with a convincing 21-6 win over the visiting Battling Bishops of Ohio Wesleyan University Saturday afternoon from Sea Gull Stadium. Senior Ryan Rhode (Glenmoore, PA/Malvern Prep) lead all goal scores with four on the afternoon.

The Battling Bishops struck first, scoring one minute and thirty seconds into the game as Harrison Iuliano gave Ohio Wesleyan the early advantage. However, the Sea Gulls would soon erase that lead as Rhode scored back-to-back goals within one minute of each other to put Salisbury up 2-1. Senior Mike Hurley (Cambridge, MD/Cambridge-SD) added two goals of his own in the first quarter, as the Sea Gulls lead the Bishops 8-1 after one quarter.

Salisbury continued their dominance in the second quarter as they built on their seven goal lead with scores from Kylor Berkman (Salisbury, MD/Parkside), Dan Boyer (Millersville, MD/Mt. St. Joseph's), Matt White (Annapolis, MD/St. Mary's), and Hurley. Salisbury out-shot OWU 28-11 in the first half as the Gulls took a 13-3 edge into halftime.

The Sea Gulls came out of the gates in the second half sluggish, giving up two goals and failing to convert on five consecutive clear opportunities. Despite the slow start, Salisbury was able to find the back of the net twice in the final 39 seconds, highlighted by Matt Dasinger (Reistertown, MD/Franklin) forced turnover and unassisted goal with seven seconds remaining in the quarter.

Salisbury added six more goals in the final frame to finish the game with the 21-6 win.

Junior Ryan DeRose (Oswego, NY/Owego) was successful on 16-19 (84%) face-off opportunities, as the Gulls finished the game winning 22-31 (71%). Starting goalie Max Zarchin (Annapolis, MD/St. Mary's) finished the game with nine saves, giving up only five goals.

Salisbury University returns to action on Wednesday, March 15th, as they travel to Widener University to face the Pioneers before returning home Saturday, March 18th to host the Seahawks of St. Mary's from Sea Gull Stadium.

Salisbury isn't ranked #1 here cause this sight knows nothing about the unknown players they have at that school. They figure Zarchin couldn't handle starting, they lost to much on midfield, and there attack wouldn't be as strong. What they fail to see is that they hoard talent at that school. They should be number one in every poll until they are knocked off. I dont ever remember a Hobart team getting ranked lower than one to start a year in there dominating times.

the gulls are always impressive. It would be nice to see the field of talented teams expand beyond a few elite ones year after after year. I love how that has started to happen in D-1

How bout that transfer from Essex (cant think of his name), I saw him play down at Duke and at first I thought it was Sean White until it took me a second to realize that Sean White had graduated. Talk about cookie cutter clone.
