Last Saturday the men’s lacrosse team opened the 2007 season with a 15-8 loss to Vermont.
The Catamounts jumped out in front scoring the first two goals of the game and then two more after the Bobcats first goal of the season. Quinnipiac kept battling tough to keep the game within reach, eventually tying the game at four goals apiece.
Vermont ran away with the game in the end of the first half and kept their attack strong in the second half scoring nine unanswered goals stretching their lead to 13-4. Following the bombardment of Catamount goals the Bobcats went on a minor run themselves shortening the deficit to six.
However, Vermont answered the Bobcats attempt to get back in the game by out scoring Quinnipiac two goals to one the rest of the way, making the final score 15-8.
Opening day was not all bad for the Bobcats. Senior Tucker Prudden had four points in the game scoring two goals and assisting on two others. Also, senior Mike Stottler put four in the back of the net for the Bobcats in the loss as well.
Sophomore Todd Kaiser scored the first goal of the season for the Bobcats and had one assist and senior Anthony Poerio scored the other goal and added two assists as well. Junior John D’Ascoli, freshman Alex DeAlmeida and freshman Alex Marrotto each had one assist also.
The Bobcats will go for their first win of the season on March 2nd when they travel to Rhode Island to play the Providence Friars.
