Fairfield and Bellarmine lacrosse seasons are going in the opposite directions. Last week’s game by the Stags should give the team a precautionary message- anybody can beat anybody. Plus in 2013, the Stags lost to Bellarmine on Lessing Field and almost derailing the Stags being in the ECAC Lacrosse League Championships. This is a conference game. Two years ago, the NCAA Tournament Committee did not give the Stags a NCAA bid due the Stags in my own opinion outside political issues that I will not elaborate on here. Get me one on one ….. The Stags need to get the AQ for the ECAC Lacrosse League. Have to win games in the regular ECAC Lacrosse League season and win the ECAC to get the first seed in the Conference Tournament. It has to start in Louisville, KY on Saturday. Bellarmine does not have an overpowering face off unit and they seem to build momentum as the game goes on. The team needs to get off to a fast start and leave the foot on the gas the entire game!

Sophomore Conor Barr had three ground balls. Senior Shawn Honovich had two caused turnovers including one in the last two minutes of the game that lead to a goal.  Finally, I have to cite the man down unit for killing off all five Holy Cross penalty chances.

Frosh of the Year- Season still has many games to be played and the ECAC portion of the schedule.  Dave Fleming has a lead in this honorary category.  Fleming now has 12 goals and three assists for 15 points.  Jake Knostman is still in the mix and can make a charge.  He has eight goal and four assists for 12 points.  In the Soph of the year category-TJ Neubauer has 16 goals and two assists for 18 points.

The Holy Cross game was a lot closer than I expected.  The word PARITY comes into play according to Founder Joe Kern.  After watching on video at home and reviewing the final game stats, the face off game and the turnovers in the Holy Cross game are of concern for this team.  Good news is the team now has a week to rest and heal some of the nicks and bruises received in the last two weeks.  The Stags open their ECAC Lacrosse League play on Saturday March 29th on the road in Louisville, Kentucky against Bellarmine University.  Bellarmine is currently 4-3 for the season and 0-3 in ECAC Lacrosse League play.

Stars of the Game-The entire defensive unit!!!!!!  Senior Greg Perraut with his three ground balls and two caused turnovers, Senior Toby Armour with his key ground ball at the end of the game, Junior Max Buchanan with his four ground balls and two caused turnovers, Junior Thomas Lukacovic who gave the defense needed rest and Senior Jack Murphy with his 10 saves, two ground balls and one caused turnover. Monster day for the Defensive Unit!!!  The D middies also contributed to the defensive efforts mightily.  Offensively, Junior Colin McLinden hit the back of the net with his three goals and one assist, Senior Eric Warden scored three goals, Drew Federico hitting for two key goals and Junior Tristian Sperry with two goals. Sperry’s two goals in the first three minutes got the Stags offense off and running. Sperry’s goals were big as it had UMass on their heels right from the start of the game.

Frosh of the Year- David Fleming is inching in front of Jake Knostman. Fleming now has 11 goals and three assists for 14 points while Knostman has eight goals and three assists for eleven points.  Both players are playing at a high level. They also had key defensive plays in the UMass game.  No pressure, but after not scoring a goal in the last two games (he hit the post in both game), Knostman is going to have a break out game against Holy Cross.

Soph of the Year-TJ Neubauer is having a stellar year.  He has 14 goals and two assists for 16 points. Although he did not score in the UMass game, he played great defense in the UMass.  The game now requires with the free substitutions rules,  midfielders no longer can be strictly offensive or defensive middies. An offensive middie on a fast break or transition has to play defense and Neubauer is adept at playing offense and defense.

Seen in the Stands-I met Gerald O’Hara ’90 who was captain of the 1990 team. Gerald lives in Pleasantville, NY and comes to Fairfield to see several games a season.  Was great to meet Gerald and watch the game with him.

Great game by everyone!! Coaches and the entire team!!  One of the best games I have seen a Fairfield team play.  Let’s keep it going!!

Next up is Holy Cross in Worcester, Mass on Saturday March 22nd.  The game will be played on Holy Cross Field at 4 PM.  Pregame report to follow on Friday March 21st.  GO STAGS!!    Roger Yergeau ’73

Behring’s numbers are misleading as he was thrown into the fire in an unreleasable penalty situation in the Stony Brook game. It is difficult to come in cold against a hot man up unit.
Players for both teams had conference awards for their play last week. In the CAA for UMass, Midfielder Connor Mooney was named as the Player of the Week. He had nine point made up of five goals and four assists in the two wins over Providence and Penn State. Nick Marino took home the Rookie of the Week award for his four points. Marino is second in the country for goals scored by a first year player. For Fairfield, Sophomore TJ Neubauer received the Offensive Player of the Week from the ECAC. Neubauer was honored for his five goals and one assist effort against Stony Brook. This is his first ECAC Offensive Player of the Week honor. Neubauer has scored three goals in his last three games. Freshman Dave Fleming was tabbed the ECAC Rookie of the Week honor for his three goals and one assist game against the Seawolves. Fleming has scored one goal in every game this season for the Stags. This is the first ECAC honor for Fleming. Murphy received the Defensive Player of the Week by the ECAC. He made a season high of 15 saves. He stopped nine shots in the first half against Stony Brook and limited the Seawolves to two goals in the first half. This is Murphy’s fifth time in his career and second time this season he has received the Defensive Player of the Week by the ECAC.
In my humble estimation, I think this will be a defensive battle between future CAA opponents. Stags need to shut down Marino who sparks the UMass attack. Looking at the numbers, UMass takes some penalties and you can test their man down unit. Penn State controlled the UMass FOGO man. If the Stags can get 50% of the face offs, that should be an advantage. Both teams have strong defenses and goal keepers. The game should be interesting. I will be in the stands for the UMass game after attending my son’s team scrimmage in Westport.

Fairfield 15 Stony Brook 13 March 15, 2014 Post Game Report

Monday, March 17th, 2014

To the Founders and Friends of Fairfield Lacrosse-What seem to be an easy victory for the Fairfield Lacrosse Stags in the first half became a one goal game in the second half before the Stags laxmen pulled away for a 15-13 victory over the Stony Brook Seawolves.  The game was played on a blue sky 48 degree day with a brisk wind. Most of the fans had to dress in layers and plenty of blankets in the stands. Fairfield is now 4-2 on the season and Stony Brook dropped to a 3-4 record.

Starting the game in goal for the Stags was Jack Murphy and for the Seawolves was Dan Shaghnessy. Taking the face off was Senior Michael Roe against Stony Brook’s Kyle Rowe.  Roe wins the initial faceoff and gets to the ground ball to set up the Stags first offensive set.  After looking for openings in the Seawolves defense, Freshman Jake Knostman fires a high shot at 14:02.  Stags back up on the end line and now Junior Drew Federico’s shot at 13:49 is blocked. Junior Colin McLinden gets to the ground ball and he passes to Senior Eric Warden whose shot is saved by Shaghnessy.  Stags get the rebound and Junior Tristan Sperry comes around the cage and scores unassisted at 12:50 in the period for a 1-0 Fairfield lead.    Again it is Roe versus Rowe at the face off circle with Roe getting the win and his second ground ball.   Fleming takes a shot the Shaughnessey saves and he starts the clear.  Stony Brook is taking their time on its first offensive effort.  At 10:56, Canadian Challen Rogers takes a wide shot (Coach Will immediately spots Rogers as a Canadian due to the way he holds his stick!).  Seawolves retain the ball and Junior Max Buchanan has a caused turnover.  Senior Pete DeSalvo scoops up the ground ball and starts a clear.  Stags work the wheel and drop the ball but Knotsman gets to the ground ball allowing the Stags to continue its offense effort.  At 8:43 on the clock, Colin McLinden gets an unassisted goal to put Fairfield in the lead by a 2-0 score.  Stony Brook’s Rowe wins this face off against Roe and Rowe gets to the ground ball.  Rogers for Stony Brook takes a shot at 8:03 that Murphy saves.  Seawolves get to the rebound but Sophomore Conor Barr has a caused turnover with the resulting ground ball.  Stags clear the ball and start on offense.  McLinden has a shot that goes wide at 7:04 and Stony Brook is able to clear.  A minute later, Murphy makes a save on a Stony Brook shot.  Neubauer gets the ground ball and sprints down the field to clear the ball.  With 5:08 remaining in the first quarter, Stags have a turnover.  Seawolves clear and a minute into their offense a shot is taken that Murphy stops.  Stags clear and set up the attack.  With 3:13 on the clock, McLinden wraps around the cage and is stopped by Shaughnessy.  Stony Brook clears and they have only shooting the ball on their mind.  First Mike Rooney takes a wide shot at 1:50.  Nine seconds later, Chris Hughes takes as shot that Murphy saves.  Seawolves retain the ball and at 1:19 Rooney scores with Rogers getting the assist. Stags lead the game by a 2-1 score.  Junior Louis DiGiacomo takes the face off against Rowe. Rowe wins the draw and gets to the ground ball to set up the Stony Brook offense.  Jake Sichenzia takes a quick shot that Murphy saves but Stony Brook gets the ground ball.  With 35 seconds remaining in the first quarter, Seawolves have a turnover and Stags clear.  Coach Copelan calls for a last second shot and the Stags crisply move the ball.  With more than one second on the clock.  McLinden finds Neubauer who fires it home. Stags now have a 3-1 in the lead. DiGiacomo gets a face off win from Rowe. Period ends with Fairfield in the lead by a 3-1 score.

The Stags now go on a four goal run (five if you include the last goal of the first period).  Rowe is facing DiGiacomo in the middle of the field. DiGiacomo wins the face off and the ground ball.  Stags offense is probing the Seawolves defense.  At 14:07, Junior Drew Federico takes a shot that is blocked.  McLinden gets to the ground ball and resets the Fairfield attack.  Federico takes a second shot and Shaughnessy makes the save.  Clear for Stony Brook is good but the Stags defense wants the ball.  At the 13:00 minute mark of the second period, the defensive efforts are rewarded when the Seawolves have a turnover.  Stags clear is successful.  Fleming’s shot 47 seconds into the offensive set is blocked but the Stags get to the rebound.  Fleming takes another shot at 11:52 and he puts it home.  The goal is unassisted and the Stags now lead 4-1.  Roe returns to the X to face Rowe.  Roe gets the face off and Barr from the wing gets the ball with his long pole.  Stags offense gets set as they move the ball.  Sperry has the ball behind the cage and he makes a quick move. He puts his shot is low and past the Seawolves’ goal keeper feet. Pretty move by Sperry for an unassisted goal at 11:03 pushing the Stags lead to 5-1.  It is Roe versus Rowe at the X. Roe gets the win and the ground ball.  Stags are in no hurry. Attack is waiting for the right moment.  Almost a minute into the offense, Sperry’s shot is saved by Shaghnessy. Fleming gets to the rebound ground ball and puts it into the goal.  The unassisted goal give the Stags a 6-1 lead with 10:05 remaining in the first quarter.  Rowe this time beats Roe at the face off circle and gets to the ground ball.  Stony Brook’s coach calls his first time of the half to stop the Stags offensive efforts at 9:48.  Seawolves restart and run their offense.  Murphy saves a Seawolves shot at 8:59 and the Stags clear.  Fairfield is moving the ball around the perimeter waiting for the right matchup.  At 7:40, Neubauer sees a lane and fires home one of his rocket shot.  Stags now lead the game 7-1.  Rowe faces Roe again at the faceoff X. Rowe wins this battle with wing Bryan Judge getting the ground ball.  Stony Brook works their offensive set and at 6:50, Matt Schultz is able to score with an assist from Chris Hughes at 6:50 to break the Stags four goal run.  Fairfield now leads the game 7-2.  DiGiacomo now comes out to the X to face Rowe.  DiGiacomo wins the face off and he also gets the ground ball.  Stags work quickly and Fleming’s hard shot finds the back of the net with an assist from Neubauer.  Stags now lead 8-2 at 6:36. This is Fleming’s third goal of the first half.  Coach Will remarks that Fleming may have the hardest shot on the team.  It is a close contest between Fleming and Neubauer in my estimation. Stony Brook’s coach calls his second time out of the half before the face off.  He changes face off men. Frank Lacatuorto now takes the draw against DiGiacomo.  DiGiacomo wins and he gets to the ground ball.  McLinden takes a shot at 5:55 but it hits the post! Knostman gets the ground ball and resets the Stags offense.  Knostman finds Federico and Federico score to make it a 9-2 game at 5:59 left in the first half.  Rowe returns to face off circle facing off against Roe this time.  Rowe gets the win and the ground ball resulting from the face off.  Seawolves offense takes time off the clock but the Fairfield defense is playing tough.  A Stony Brook shot at 4:46 is saved by Murphy and Barr gets to the rebound. He starts the clear. Fairfield’s offense takes some air out of the ball and is waiting for the right moment to strike.  Sophomore Conor Barr finds McLinden who buries the shot.   At 3:01 remains in the second quarter and Fairfield has built up the lead to 10-2.  DiGiacomo comes out to face Rowe and Rowe takes this draw.  Rowe wins this face off duel and gets to the ground ball.  Stony Brook’s attack takes a minute off the clock.  Finally, Schultz takes a shot that Murphy saves.  Rooney for the Seawolves gets the ground ball and Rogers from Canada (this kid is a shooter) fires a shot that Murphy saves.  Ball is loose and in a scramble for the ball, Murphy comes out of the cage and cross checks. The officials give him a one minute unreleasable penalty at 1:37 because the cross check was above the shoulders.  Freshman Tyler Behing comes out on the field with no warm-up to replace Murphy.  Stony Brook’s potent man up unit takes the field.  They waste no time in testing Behing and Schultz scores at 1:23 to cut the Fairfield lead to 10-3.  Rowe against Roe in a man up face off and Rowe takes this face off when the officials call a violation.  Schultz gets another goal with 41 seconds remaining in the half with an assist from Rogers to make it a 10-4 Fairfield lead.  Still a man down face off and Rowe takes the draw against Roe. Rowe gets the win and takes the ground ball.  Rogers tries to score with 4 seconds remaining in the half but his shot is blocked and goes out on the sidelines.  Stony Brook makes a fast restart and passes the ball to the Hughes whose shot at the end of the half goes wide.  The teams go into the locker room at halftime with Fairfield leading 10-4 but the momentum has shifted to Stony Brook’s favor.

Stony Brook makes a change at goal and now playing between the pipes is Freshman Hayden Stone.  Murphy is back in the nets for Fairfield as his penalty time was completed before the halftime horn. The two Roes and Rowes face off to start the second half.  Rowe wins and gets the ground ball.  Seawolves get into the offense set and the Canadian Rogers gets an unassisted goal at 14:05 to make it a 10-5 Fairfield lead.  Rowe wins the face off against Roe and he gets the ground ball.  Seawolves work the ball around and at 12:57, DeSalvo creates a turnover. Stags clear the ball and look to score.  Sperry finds Senior Eric Warden at 12:14. Warden’s shot is good and gives Fairfield an 11-6 lead.  Roe and Rowe battle again and Rowe wins three in a row at the X.  Wing Dylan Curry gets the ground ball and the Seawolves are flying to the cage.  Rooney scores with Schultz getting the assist at 12:04 cutting the Stags lead to 11-6.  Rowe now faces DiGiacomo.  Rowe wins face off number four in the second half. Clearly he made some adjustments at halftime.  Wing Curry once again gets the ground ball and sets up the Stony Brook offensive.  They work the ball for over a minute when Murphy comes out of the cage and creates a turnover.  Murphy gets the ground ball and clears.  Stags go on the offense but have a caused turnover at 9:37.  Stony Brook clears.  They take a minute before taking a shot that Murphy saves.  Murphy starts the clear. Stags work the perimeter of the cage and Sperry’s shot at 7:38 is saved by Johnstone.  The rebound comes out front and Federico is there to take advantage.  After picking up the ground ball, he scores unassisted.  Pushes the Stags lead to 12-6.  Rowe again faces off against DiGiacomo and Rowe continues his wins at the X.  Curry on the wing gets the ground ball.  Schultz takes a quick shot that is blocked followed quickly by a shot by Rogers that goes wide.  Flag was down and the officials call Senior Toby Armour for slashing.  Seawolves man up unit takes the field.  They work the ball to Rogers whose first shot is wide.  His second shot is saved by Murphy and the Seawolves retain the ball.  At 5:56 with the penalty over and the Fairfield player coming out of the box, Schultz scores assisted by Rogers to make it a 12-7 game.  Roe now comes to the X take on Rowe. Rowe continues his win streak and gets the ground ball. Seawolves once again go straight to the cage with Rooney scoring and Schultz getting an assist at 5:48. Stags now lead 12-8. Coach Copelan calls a time out to stop the Seawolves momentum.  Back at the X at the end of the time out, Roe and Rowe continue their face off battle. Rowe can’t be stopped and he wins again. On the wing, Ellis gets the ground ball.  Quickly at 5:03, Brody Eastwood scores for the Seawolves unassisted to cut the Fairfield lead to 12-9.  DiGiacomo comes out to take the face off against Rowe and the officials call a violation on DiGiacomo.  Freshman Jay Walsh quickly has a caused turnover.  He gets the ground ball and clears.  Stags take their time on offense and Federico’s shot at 3:22 is saved by Johnstone.  The clear is good but after having the ball for almost a minute, Armour has a caused turnover.  Stags clear and now the Fairfield offense is looking for a good shot. It comes at 1:27 left in the period when Neubauer finds a lane and fires a hard shot past Johnston for an unassisted goal. Stags now lead 13-9.  Rowe and DiGiacomo face off with DiGiacomo getting the win. Armour gets the ground ball when it goes into the box.  He clears the ball and the Fairfield offense wants that last minute goal.  The officials call a 30 second shot clock stall warning at 24 left in the period. Coach Copelan directs his team to wait until 10 seconds to go for the shot.   With two seconds on the clock, Sperry takes the shot but it goes wide. Period ends with the Stags in the lead by a 13-9 score.

The fans in the stands are hoping the four goal lead is large enough for the Stags.  Stony Brook clearly has the momentum and has made adjustments at the face off circle. Plus they have a history of second half comebacks in 2014.  Out come the teams with Rowe and DiGiacomo taking the initial face off of the fourth quarter.  DiGiacomo wins and Neubauer on the wing gets to the ground ball.  Stags have a quick turnover and the Johnstone gets the ground ball. He starts the clear and the Seawolves waste no time and score at 14:34 to cut the Fairfield lead to 13-10.  Curry scored with Schultz getting the assist.  DiGiacomo takes the face off with Rowe but Rowe wins the face off.  Alex Harris on the wing gets the ground ball.  The Fairfield defense is working to deny Stony Brook any scoring chances.  Slow whistle and a flag down on Fairfield as Fleming trying to get a ground ball at midfield is being called offsides as he jumped out of bounds. Official makes the call very late on a close play and after much chatter from the Seawolves coaching staff.  A shot by Chris Hughes is blocked and on the rebound a Stony Brook defenseman steps offsides to kill the play.  Fleming goes off for 30 seconds and Stony Brook’s man up unit comes back onto the field.  Mike Andressi takes a shot that Murphy saves. Stags clear and kill the penalty.  The Fairfield offense is being deliberate and also taking time off the clock.  The officials call a stall, thus the Stags have 30 seconds to take a shot.  At 11:56 Warden takes a shot that Johnstone saves and play is stopped as a Seawolf player was offsides.  Stags man up unit has its first chance of the day.  Warden on the man up unit takes a shot but Johnstone makes the save.  Fleming gets the rebound ground ball and pulls the ball out to reset the Stags offense.  Penalty expires but the Fairfield offense has the ball.  McLinden wraps around the cage but his shot goes wide at 10:46. Curry gets to the ground ball and the Stony Brook coach calls his first time out of the second half.  Seawolves restart and quickly score at 10:06.  Rooney who is having a career day scores at 10:06 assisted by Andreassi.  Stags still lead by a 13-11 margin.  DiGiacomo and Rowe take the face. Rowe wins the draw and Mark Ellis on the wing picks up the ground ball.  After working the ball for over a minute, Rooney scores again assisted this time by Sichenzia.  With 9:04 left in the game, the Stags lead is one goal-13 to 12.  Now Roe takes on Rowe at the X.  Roe wins this battle and Senior Greg Perraut gets the ground ball.  Stags offense takes their time and the officials call a stall at 7:35.  McLinden takes a quick shot that Johnstone saves.  Stony Brook clears and now the Seawolves offense looks for the tying goal.  Stags defense is being aggressive and Armour has a caused turnover.  DeSalvo picks up the resulting ground ball.  He starts the clear and Stags now have the ball in the offensive zone.  McClendon has the ball and is looking for a cutter.  Neubauer breaks free and McLinden hits him with the pass. Neubauer does not miss scoring his fourth goal of the day with McLinden getting the key assist.  Stags now lead 14-12 but 5:41 remains on the game clock.  It’s Roe versus Rowe once again.  Rowe wins this draw with Harris getting to the ground ball. The Fairfield defense is all over the Stony Brook players and Armour gets another caused turnover.  Buchanan gets the ground ball and the Stags clear the ball successfully.  At 4:24, Sperry’s hard shot is saved by Johnstone.  Stony Brook gets the rebound ground ball and clear into the offensive zone.  Stony Brook has their shooters on the field and they are taking shots to cut the Stags lead. First, Rooney takes a shot that goes wide at 3:20. Then Hughes has a shot saved by Murphy at 3:02 followed by another shot by Hughes at 2:51 that Murphy again saves.  Stags are able to clear the ball.  Fairfield’s offense is taking time off the clock and looking for the one good shot. Coach Copelan spots the officials are ready to put on a stall warning. He alertly calls his second time of the second half with 1:56 left on the game clock.  On the restart, Stony Brook’s defense sets up to double the ball (“too early” says Coach Will).  He is correct as Fleming who had the ball on the restart smartly finds Neubauer who is all alone and puts it home for his fifth goal of the game.  This gives the Stags some breathing room with 1:49 remaining in the game and a 15-12 lead.  Rowe versus Roe on a critical face off. Roe wins and Neubauer gets the ground ball from the wing.  Stags are content to pass the ball around and run away from the Seawolves’ defenders.  The officials with one minute left in the game put on the stall warning and the Stags have 30 seconds to take a shot.  A quick Stags shot is wide and Stony Brook clears.  The Seawolves coach calls his second time out at 44 seconds but lobbies the officials to add six seconds to the clock.  The restart is at 50 seconds  now versus the original 44 seconds. On the restart, Stony Brook’s Hughes takes a shot at 41 seconds. Murphy saves and starts the clear. Stags players are trying to run away from the Seawolves but Lucatuorto gets a caused turnover with 22 seconds remaining in the game.  Stony Brook clears and Hughes sends a wide shot with 7 seconds remaining.  Stony Brook has one chance left and Rooney gets his sixth goal of the game with a “sick” over the shoulder shot.  Rowe and Roe take the last face off of the game with Rowe winning. He gets the ground ball but the horn ending the game sounds. Stags win 15-13. Well deserved hard fought win over a tough opponent.

Stony Brook outshot the Stags by a 38 to 35 margin.  Stags had 21 shots in the first half and 14 shots in the second half while the Seawolves had 17 shots in the first half and 21 shots in the second half. The fourth quarter had Stony Brook taking 11 shots versus 8 shots for Fairfield.  Ground balls were almost even as Stony Brook had 31 gbs while Fairfield scooped up 30 gbs.  In the first half Fairfield had 18 ground balls and 12 in the second half. The Seawolves had 11 ground balls in the first half and 20 in the second half.  Roe and DiGiacomo won 12 of 32 face offs versus Rowe taking 20 of 31 draws.  Rowe won 8 of 9 in the third quarter and had 4 wins of the seven face offs taken in the fourth quarter.  In the extra man offense, Stony Brook converted 2 of 4 chances while Fairfield did not convert in its only one man up opportunity.  Fairfield was 18 of 18 on its clears and Stony Brook was successful on 12 of 12 chances.  Seawolves had 10 turnovers while the Stags only had 4 turnovers in the game.  Murphy had 15 saves in the game including 5 in the first quarter while the two Stony Brook net minders combined for 11 saves.  Four of the Stony Brook saves came in the fourth quarter.

Stars of the game-Sophomore TJ Neubauer who had a career high of five goals on five shots.  His fourth goal was officially the game winner and the fifth goal was the safety net goal.  Neubauer also had four ground balls in the game.  Freshman Dave Fleming had three goals in the first half and one assist on the Neubauer fifth goal.  Fleming scooped up two ground balls.  Junior Colin McLinden had two goals and two assists.  He assisted on Neubauer’s game winner, the second game in a row McLinden gets the assist on the game winning goal.   Senior Michael Roe was 6 of 14 on face offs and Junior Louis DiGiacomo was 6 of 12 on face offs.  Their first half wins helped key the Stags 10 goal first half and both of them picked up key second half wins.  Defensively Senior Toby Armour had three caused turnover and one ground ball.  Junior Max Buchanan had to take on the Canadian Rogers one on one defensively much of the game and limited him to one goal.  Jack Murphy had 15 saves in the game including four big stops in the fourth quarter.

Unsung heroes-This is a new category and I may not include this every game.  In my estimation, the defensive middies who do not get a lot of stats did a great job against Stony Brook and against Yale. They include Seniors Shawn Honovich, Geordie Carrick and Pete DeSalvo, Junior Bryon Barry, Sophomore Conor Barr and Freshman Jay Walsh.  Great job D Middies!!

The Frosh of the year category is a tie between Dave Fleming and Jake Knostman.  Fleming now has 10 goals this season with two assists for 12 points. Knostman had one assist against Stony Brook to improve to 11 points-eight goals and three assists in 2014.  Knostman also had three ground balls in the Stony Brook game.  Have to give both players parents a huge pat on the back.  Knostman’s parents made the trip from the State of Washington for the game and Fleming’s father came from California.  Truly dedicated parents and big thanks  to the Knostmans and Mr. Fleming for coming to Fairfield to support your sons!!!  Sophomore of the year category -TJ Neubauer.  He has 14 goals this season and two assists for sixteen points.  He is having a great sophomore season!!

Tyler Behring played almost 15 minutes in the nets in relief of Murphy. Two goals have been scored against him for an 8.22 goals against average and credited with one save for a .333 save percentage.
I find this to be a very interesting game. What Stony Brook team will we see at Alumni Field on Saturday? The team that played #1 Maryland tough or the team that lost to Marist and almost lost to Sacred Heart? They have a good face off man and their man up unit has been very productive. The Seawolves only played one game on the road this season against Duke. Will that be a factor as all their other games were at home? Who will play in goal for Stony Brook against the Stags? Have the Stags come down after the Yale game? I am sure Coach Copelan and the coaching staff has the Fairfield laxmen ready to play. There will be lot of questions to be answered on Saturday afternoon.
I will be attending the Stony Brook game. My son’s high school team will be attending to see how the collegiate play. Think I will try to enter the game with his team as they are getting a better admission price than even my reduced senior rate!!! It is predicted to be 50 plus degree day on Saturday. Hard to believe especially when it was so cold with the wind chill also that we experienced on Thursday. If you can find the time, please try to make this game. Think there are going to be an entertaining game with lot of goals being scored.

Several individuals need to be highlighted.  Junior Colin McLinden had a career day.  One goal and six assists for the game.  Seven points in one game is a career high for McLinden along with six assist was also a career high.  In addition, he got two ground balls for the game.  McLinden is now 8th on the Fairfield career assist list.  Senior Eric Warden with not only the game winner but three goals on the day.  Sophomore TJ Neubauer had a hat trick on the day.  His first goal of the day 16 seconds into the game was the tone setter.  Neubauer also scooped up two ground balls.  Senior Michael Roe and Junior Louis DiGiacomo winning 13 of 27 face offs thus neutralizing the Yale FOGO who has a national reputation.  Defensive stars of the game-where do I start and who do I leave off?  The entire defensive team including the defensive middies.  They turned back Yale in last four minutes of regulation and the first part of the OT.  Great job men!!!!!

Frosh of the Year competition-Jake Knotsman got two goals against Yale and Dave Fleming had one goal and one assists.  Fleming’s caused turnover at 11 minutes of the fourth quarter was huge in my estimation. Both are key members of the Fairfield offensive unit and are making large contributions as freshmen.  Knotsman has 10 points on the year and Fleming has eight points.  Both are frosh of the year so far in the 2014 season.  Soph of the Year-TJ Neubauer with his second straight multiple goal game takes the lead.  He has eight goals for the season and two assists for ten points.

Seen in the crowd- Darrell Ponzio ’90 came from Middletown, CT with his son Calvin and enjoyed the game. Darrell helped start a youth lax program in Middletown, CT and both of his sons are playing. Bob Cypher came from Rye, NY and John Hughes made the trip from Hamden, CT. Alum parents Clay Wells and John Bannon were in the stands with Clay coming from PA. I understand Gary Raniola, Jr. ’09 was in attendance. Great to see everyone cheering on a big win for the program.

The Stags are now 3-2 on the season and get some rest this week.  Continuing their four game home stand, the Stags will next play Stony Brook with a 2-3 record (they have a game on Tuesday) at 1 PM on Alumni Field.  Last year’s game against Stony Brook was snowed out (plus the LIE was closed for days!).  The preliminary forecast is for another 50 degree day but do we trust the weatherman this winter??  Roger Yergeau ’73
