#6 Shoremen Dominate Cardinals, 18-3

Thirteen Different Players Score in Win

CHESTERTOWN, MD -- Sixth-ranked host Washington College improved to 5-0 on the season with an 18-3 win over visiting Catholic University in non-conference men's lacrosse action tonight on Kibler Field at Roy Kirby, Jr. Stadium. The Shoremen got goals from 13 different players in the game. 

The Shoremen dominated from the start, out-shooting the Cardinals (3-5), 40-10, in the first half and racing out to a 9-0 halftime lead. Washington scored four goals in a span of just 51 seconds in the second quarter, capped off by a goal by sophomore midfielder Michael Trapp (White Plains, NY/White Plains) off a face-off with 8:23 remaining, just six seconds after a goal by junior midfielder Kodie Englehart (Coronado, CA/Coronado)

Washington scored all nine of its second-half goals in the third quarter, converting on 50% of their shots in the quarter. The Shoremen finished with a 67-30 advantage in shots and a 54-28 advantage in ground balls in the game. Washington also won 22 of the game's 25 face-offs as both sophomore Raymond Circo (Rocky Point, NY/Rocky Point) and freshman Matt Bucci (Davidsonville, MD/Indian Creek) were both perfect at 7-for-7 and 6-for-6, respectively, while Trapp went 9-for-11.

Sophomore attackman Stephen Luck (Catonsville, MD/Boys' Latin) scored three goals and assisted on another for the Shoremen, while senior attackman Bennett Cord (Gaithersburg, MD/Gaithersburg) scored two goals and assisted on three others.  Junior attackman Jim Cusick (Fallston, MD/Calvert Hall) and junior attackman JD Campbell (Baltimore, MD/Mount St. Joseph) each finished with two goals and one assist. Freshman attackman Casey Kermes (State College, PA/Northfield Mount Herman [MA]) chipped in one goal and three assists, while freshman midfielder Burke Harrington (Ft. Lauderdale, FL/St. Thomas Aquinas) tallied two goals and one assist. 

Junior goalie Ted DiSalvo (Boca Raton, FL/Spanish River) played the first half in goal for the Shoremen and made four saves. Sophomore goalie Beau Brady (Radnor, PA/Radnor) made seven saves and allowed the three Catholic goals in 24 minutes and sophomore goalie Andrew Bolland (Mountain Lakes, NJ/Mountain Lakes) made a pair of saves in the final six minutes. Senior defenseman Zack Fuller (Millbrook, NY/Canterbury School [CT]) had a game-high four caused turnovers in the contest.

Camden Feldman led the Cardinals with two goals, while Nathan Chan had one goal and one assist. Harrison Holak played the first half in goal for the Cardinals, making 11 saves and allowing nine goals. Mark Destro allowed seven goals and made no saves in 12:02, while Kevin Cardillo made four saves and allowed two goals in 17:58.

The game was played under some unusual circumstances as the northeast bank of lights at the stadium went out prior to game time and never came back on. That corner of the field was played in fading light during the second half and the fourth quarter featured a running clock after a discussion between the officials and both coaches near the end of the third quarter. 

The Shoremen return to action Thursday with a 1:00 p.m. home game against Ohio Wesleyan.
