HAMPDEN-SYDNEY, Va. – The Gettysburg College men’s lacrosse team, ranked second in NCAA Division III by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) and Lacrosse Magazine, opened its 2008 season with a victory over another nationally-ranked foe, disposing of host and 17th-ranked Hampden-Sydney College 13-5 in a non-conference affair Saturday afternoon.

Gettysburg (1-0) wasted little time jumping ahead, scoring each of the first four goals against Hampden-Sydney (1-1) with each of the first two coming off the stick of junior Tom O'Donnell (Lansdale, Pa./La Salle College). The Tigers closed the margin to 5-4 by scoring two of the final three goals in the first period and each of the first two in the second. From there, the Bullet defense held firm, allowing only a man-up goal to the hosts in the final 40:20, while the offense scored eight of the final nine goals in the contest, including a pair by sophomore Joe Brody (Bethesda, Md./Walter Johnson).

Brody led the offensive output for the visitors by netting a hat trick and adding a pair of assists. O’Donnell added an assist for a three-point day, while senior Ben Sufrin (Mahopac, N.Y./Mahopac), junior Drew Duckworth (Rye, N.Y./Hotchkiss School (Conn.)), and senior Jared Harriman (Yarmouth, Maine/Yarmouth) each added a pair of scores. Junior Zach Pucci (Ridgewood, N.J./Ridgewood) dished out two assists for Gettysburg.

Defensively, junior Charles Floeckher (Lutherville, Md./Boys Latin School) made three saves and allowed five goals in his first start between the pipes for the Orange & Blue. Junior Zachary Furshman (Miami, Fla./Kent School (Conn.)) played the final 5:45 in goal, making one save. Also, junior Yanni Peary (South Portland, Maine/Cape Elizabeth) and senior Andrew McGann (Laguna, Calif./Holderness (N.H.)) combined for 10 ground balls for the Bullet defense.

Kyle Jett led the Tigers with two goals, while Phil Hage posted a game-high 11 saves.

Gettysburg returns to campus for a four-game home-stand beginning against Villa Julie College on Wednesday, March 5, on Shirk Field at Musselman Stadium at 3:30 p.m.

Gettysburg is probably the best program in the history of DIII Lacrosse that hasn't won it all, yet. Coach Hank has done an awesome job, and, until he wins it all, he and Gettysburg are the sentimental favorites.

Janczyk knows what winning is all about. After all, he was a member of Hobart's D III championship legacy as a player. Yes, I'd love to see the Bullets do the same, but state schools like Cortland, Salisbury have a decided advantage over a private like Gettysburg.
