ANNAPOLIS, MD: The Limestone College lacrosse team traveled to Annapolis today for their biggest game of the young season. The second ranked Saints squared off with the sixth ranked Panthers searching for the program's first win over Adelphi. The Panthers led the series 5-0. However, the last meeting came in the 2001 national championship game, a 14-10 Panthers' victory, meaning none of the current Saints have played against the Panthers.
SAINTS SCORE 9 IN 4th: TAKE FIRST WIN OVER ADELPHI
Today the Saints used an explosive offense that put nine goals on the board in the fourth quarter to top Adelphi by a score of 19-12.
The Panthers led 3-2 at the end of the first quarter, and extended that lead to 5-2 with 10:52 to play in the half. After Bobby Woody tied the game at 5 with a man-up goal with just over a minute to go in the half, Roger Vyse scored a spectacular goal with 1 tick left on the clock to give the Saints a 6-5 edge at the half.
In the third period, the game swayed back-and-forth. Adelphi's Wesley Green matched Vyse's heroics when he found the net with 1 second remaining in the period to tie the contest at 10.
In the fourth period, Limestone's offense took off. Limestone opened the period with a pair of goals in the first three minutes to take a 12-10 lead. After the Panthers pulled to within one at 12-11, Limestone rattled off 7 unanswered scores to run away with the win. Adelphi added a late goal to cap the scoring at 19-12.
Vyse led the Saints' attack with an outstanding 9 points on 6 goals and 3 assists. David Wooster and Bobby Woody followed close behind with 7 points apiece. Wooster scored 4 goals to go with 3 assists, while Woody finished with 5 goals and 2 assists. Nolan Heavenor added 3 goals and 2 assists for Limestone. Marty Ward was also outstanding in goal for the Saints. Ward finished with 18 saves including 6 in the final period.
Adelphi was led by Wesley Green and Gregory Kalberer. Green found the net 5 times while Kalberer tallied 2 goals and 4 assists.
Head Coach Chris Hasbrouck was excited about a big win. "This was a lot of fun. I'm proud of the guys. They worked awfully hard to prepare for this. We had a great fourth quarter and our offense kind of wore them down."
The Game also marked Assistant Coach Chris Campbell's final game on the sidelines for the Saints. Campbell is one of two 4-time All-Americans in the history of Limestone College Athletics. A 2001 graduate of Limestone, Coach Campbell served for 3 seasons as an assistant coach.
