Division III quarterfinal game in Canton.  After coming back to a 6-6 tie at the half, the Saints fell behind 9-6 within the first two minutes of the third quarter.  However, S.L.U. rode a pivotal 8-1 run to grab and never relinquish the lead, beating Amherst 16-12.  The Saints advance to face a formidable Tufts University squad in the Division III national semifinal in Massachusetts on Sunday.  (Francesco Palumbo photo)  Game Gallery

May 1: Conor Healey scored for the St. Lawrence University Men's Lacrosse team on a diving shot into the upper corner of the goal with 25 seconds left in the fourth quarter to tie the score at 11-11 but Union College scored 3:15 into the overtime period for the 12-11 victory Friday afternoon in a Liberty League Tournament semifinal game on North Country Field at Hall-Leet Stadium in Canton.  The win for Union (13-3) advanced them to the championship game Sunday in Rochester against RIT who posted a 17-4 victory over Clarkson in the other tournament semifinal game.  The loss to Union in Canton was the first since 1994 ending a 12-game win streak for the Saints (9-8) over Union at home.  Union scored first less than two minutes into the contest but St. Lawrence answered with four consecutive goals including two in man-up situations to take a 4-1 lead. Charlie Jennings and Jeremy Vautour had back-to-back man-up goals in a span of 1:18 before Jon Fairbanks and Tommy Hovey added even strength goals to give the Saints a 4-1 lead. Union trimmed the lead to a goal with a late score in the first quarter and the first goal of the second quarter. The teams traded goals for the rest of the first half as Andrew Jarrett and Jennings added goals for St. Lawrence as the Saints took a 6-4 lead into the halftime intermission. The teams continued to trade goals with each scoring twice in the third quarter. Healey and Hovey scored for the Saints and St. Lawrence held the two-goal advantage into the final quarter. Union scored its only man-up goal to start the final quarter and Wil Burchenal answered four minutes later for a 9-7 St. Lawrence lead. Union rallied with a pair of goals in a span of 35 seconds to knot the score at 9-9. Burchenal scored again at the 3:32 mark on a pass from Luke DiLisio as St. Lawrence took the 10-9 lead. Less than a minute later, Union tied the score again and with 1:31 left in the fourth quarter added another goal for the late lead. After winning the ensuing faceoff, Union turned the ball over and St. Lawrence moved up the field on the attack.  St. Lawrence fired a pair of shots wide of the goal and with 38 seconds left to play, the Saints called a time out to draw up the final shot. Fairbanks took a shot that was wide of the goal but Healey picked up the loose ball and came from behind the goal, dove and fired a shot into the upper corner to tie the game and force the overtime period. Healey, Hovey, Jennings and Burchenal all scored two goals each and Fairbanks had a goal and two assists for the Saints. Caleb Kane led the St. Lawrence defense with three groundballs and caused four turnovers.

April 22: Senior Tommy Hovey scored his 39th goal of the season as a Clarkson penalty expired in the third period to give St. Lawrence University's men's lacrosse team a two-goal lead over the arch-rival Golden Knights and SLU went on to a 8-6 win in a Liberty League game at Hall-Leet Stadium Wednesday afternoon. The Saints improve to 9-6 overall and 5-1 in the Liberty League clinching a league tournament spot heading into a game at national number one and Liberty League leader RIT, 15-0, 6-0 on Saturday. Clarkson 6-7 and 3-3 in league play is tied with RPI for the fourth and final playoff spot and hosts Bard on Saturday. The Saints will be making their 11th post-season tournament appearance in the 12-year history of the league. Clarkson goalie Nick Strandholm kept his team in the game, making 18 saves, several of them spectacular ones as the Saints had an overall 44-22 edge in shots attempted and a 26-13 margin in shots on goal. "It was a typical Clarkson-St. Lawrence rivalry game," said Saint coach Mike Mahoney. "Both teams played extra hard and their goalie had an exceptional game. Our guys hung in there and made the plays we needed down the stretch." The Saints grabbed an early 5-2 lead, but Strandholm and the post denied some great scoring chances and the Knights battled back into it. Hovey's 38th of the season put the Saints up 5-2 with 4:28 to go in the quarter, but Ryan St. Croix scored his 25th of the year for Clarkson with 2:57 to play and Ryan DaRin scored his 16th with 1:08 to go to make it a 5-4 game after one. Strandholm stuffed everything that came his way in the second quarter, making seven saves and St. Croix scored his second of the game with 5:51 to go in the half as the two teams hit intermission tied at 5-5. Saint senior middie Charlie Jennings scored his 10th of the year to put the Saints back on top 1:22 into the second half and Hovey made it a two-goal Saint lead as he scored a man-up goal exactly a minute after Clarkson's only penalty of the game, converting from Jeremy Vautour before the penalized player could retake the field. Matthew Gold cut the Saint lead to 7-6 with 9:31 to go in regulation, but the Saints worked the clock and got a big goal from junior middie Charlie Duprey with 2:15 to play to give them a two-goal cushion. "I thought our faceoff unit had an excellent day…" Mahoney added. The Saints won 13 of 18 draws in the game, the bulk of them by Alec Dietsch and had a 18-11 edge in ground balls. Jack Roberts and Steel White were key contributors on defense, Roberts with three caused turnovers and White with two. Goalie Nick Ford won his fourth of the year with seven saves. "I am really proud of our guys, coming off an emotional loss on Saturday. They got right back on the horse and competed hard from start to finish today," Mahoney said.

March 4: Scranton University (3-1) scored three unanswered goals to edge the SUNY Potsdam men's lacrosse team (0-1) 5-2 on Friday evening. Senior captains Pat Bonafede (Churchville, N.Y./Churchville-Chili) and Ed Doherty (Amherst, N.Y./Amherst) each scored for the Bears. Fellow senior captain Pete Gropp (Fairport, N.Y./Fairport) picked up where he left off last season with 18 saves.   The first quarter was a tightly played defensive battle with the Royals building a 9-7 advantage in shots. However, Scranton couldn't solve Gropp and the Bears couldn't beat Scranton goalie Nicholas McCaba and the the contest was scoreless after the opening 15 minutes.   Bonafede opened the scoring 1:49 into the second quarter with an unassisted tally. Just over three minutes later Josh Kasman tied the score with a helper from Nick Mullery. With 1:53 left in the half the Royals were called for holding and the Bears made the most of the man-up opportunity. With 53 seconds left in the half Bonafede found Doherty at the side of the net to make it a 2-1 contest.   The third quarter was a tight as the other two, but the edge tipped in Scranton's favor. At 10:34, Conor Carey fed Jake Haimson to tie the score. Exactly five minutes later Kasman notched his second of the contest to give the Royals their first lead. At 4:12, Haimson struck for his second and Scranton took a 4-2 advantage into the final period.   The Royals were able to sustain pressure on the Bears' defense and Gropp in the fourth quarter, outshooting Potsdam 12-2. However, Scranton was only able to tack on one final goal. With 2:52 remaining, John Sheridan closed the scoring with an unassisted marker. Gropp stopped seven shots in the quarter.   McCaba finished with seven saves to earn the victory. Potsdam was 1-for-2 in extra-man opportunities, but held the Royals to no man-up goals in four chances.   The Bears look to bounce back when they face Albright College at 1 p.m. in Scranton on Sunday afternoon.

April 26: Senior Ryan Cardiff (Albany, NY) scored six goals and senior Corey Spuck (Rochester, NY) stopped 12 shots as the men's lacrosse class of 2015 went out in style with an 18-6 victory against visiting Houghton College on Tuesday. The Roos honored their five seniors Tony Carden (Franklin, MA), Richard Brogden (Rockville, MD), Steve Novak (Seymour, CT), Cardiff and Spuck in a halftime ceremony. Twelve different players tallied a point and nine different players scored for the Roos (3-9) in the contest. Cardiff led the way with six goals and a game-high 11 ground balls. Chris Gamble (Carthage, NY) added a hat trick, while Mike Statt (Rochester, NY) posted two goals and an assist and Brandon Rodee (Canton, NY) caged two goals. SUNY Canton posted the first four goals to lead 4-0 after just 4:41 of play. Houghton got on the board with 9:19 to play in the opening quarter but Cardiff's second and third tallies of the game gave the hosts a 7-1 lead after 15 minutes of play. The Roos scored the only two goals of the second quarter to lead 9-1 at intermission. SUNY Canton scored three goals in the third stanza from the sticks of Jared Jock (Hogansburg, NY), Cardiff and a man-down goal from Statt. Rodee scored twice in the fourth quarter including his first collegiate goal. Jamie Stevens (Hudson, NY) rounded out the scoring for SUNY Canton with his first career goal with 2:20 to play en route to the 18-6 victory. All 27 Roos on the roster appeared in the contest. Novak posted seven ground balls, while Brogden and Carden combined to force five turnovers. Spuck stopped 12 shots over the first 51:06 allowing just five goals and picking up five ground balls. Josh Haingray made 17 stops for Houghton, while Jordan Warren clocked the final 2:20 of the contest.

April 1: Cam Carter (Colonie, NY) and Chris Gamble (Carthage, NY) each found the back of the net three times but visiting SUNY Potsdam earned an 18-9 victory on Wednesday evening in Canton.   The visitors scored the first two goals of the game but SUNY Canton got on the board on Gamble's 11th of the season 2:12 into the game. Carter got the Roos (0-7) within 5-2 on his third of the season midway through the first quarter.   The Bears (5-3) closed the opening period strong scoring the final four goals of the stanza. Carter would add his second of the game and Ryan Cardiff (Albany, NY) caged his 11th of the season as Potsdam led 12-4 at intermission.   Carter and Gamble slotted back-to-back scores 2:43 apart to get the Roos within 13-6 but that was as close as they would get en route to the 18-9 final. Garrett DiTullio (Potsdam, NY) and Devin Gruneisen (Potsdam, NY) netted fourth quarter goals for the hosts, while Gruneisen also picked up a team-best six ground balls.   Corey Spuck (Rochester, NY) stopped 13 shots for the Roos, while Jack Bezek turned aside three shots in 30 minutes of play to earn the win. Jackson Corcoran and Alex Uhlein came on in relief for the Bears.   The men's lacrosse team is back in action next Tuesday when it travels to take on Wells College at 4:00 p.m.

May 1: Playing the top-rated team in the country in the semifinal round of the Liberty League Tournament made for a long day for the Clarkson University Lacrosse team on Friday afternoon as the Golden Knights fell to RIT 17-4 in Rochester. The Golden Knights, who were making their third appearance in the conference tournament over the past four years, closed out the 2015 campaign with a 7-8 overall record.  Clarkson would match the Tigers early, tying score at 1-1 with sophomore Ryan St. Croix's goal three minutes in, but the Tigers close out the first quarter with three straight goals to make it 4-1 after the opening 15 minutes. RIT then scored the first three goals in the second quarter to build a 7-1 advantage with nine minutes remaining in the half before the Green and Gold would get on the scoreboard again with a tally from senior Jack Dowst with 2:08 left to put halt to the Tigers' six-goal run. Freshman Sam Groves scored the Knights' third goal to open the second half, but once again RIT went on a lengthy run with eight straight goals to seal its 17th straight win. The Tigers scored four in the third quarter to hold an 11-3 lead through 45 minutes and then outscored Clarkson 6-1 in the final frame to seal the win at home. Senior Corey Herrington rounded out Clarkson's goal scorers. RIT outshot Clarkson 46-20 and controlled ground balls 40-18.  Senior Dylan Broomfield picked up a team-high four ground balls for the Knights. Sophomore Nick Strandholm posted 15 saves for Clarkson. Ryan Lee led all scorers with five goals and one assists for the Tigers. RIT will now host Union in Sunday's Liberty League Tournament Championship game.

April 22: After battling St. Lawrence to a 5-5 tie through the first half, the Clarkson University Lacrosse team came up just short over the final 30 minutes against the Saints, suffering an 8-6 loss in Canton on Wednesday afternoon. The Golden Knights, who stand at 6-7 overall and 3-3 in the Liberty League, will strive to lock up a conference playoff berth on Saturday when they close out the regular season hosting Vassar in a 1:00 p.m. start at Hantz Turf Field. Clarkson behind a solid defensive outing, backstopped by a career-high 18 saves from sophomore goaltender Nick Strandholm, held the high-powered St. Lawrence (9-6, 5-1) offense in check for most of the game, but the Saints were able to score three key goals in the second half to pull out the win. St. Lawrence held a 5-4 edge after the opening 15 minutes, but Clarkson tied the game with sophomore Ryan St. Croix's second goal of the day late in the second quarter. The Saints outscored the Knights 2-0 in third, including the lone man-up goal of the game by Tommy Hovey with 3:57 remaining in the quarter for a 7-5 lead through 45 minutes. Senior Matthew Gold tallied Clarkson's lone goal of the second half with 9:31 remaining in the fourth quarter to pull the Knights to within one at 7-6. St. Lawrence, however, sealed the home win with Charlie Duprey's goal with 2:15 left. St. Croix led Clarkson up front with two goals and one assist. St. Lawrence outshot the Knights 44-22 and controlled ground balls 18-11. Seniors Mark Nortz and Dylan Hrebenach, and sophomore Ryan DaRin scored one goal apiece for Clarkson. Junior Austin Case picked up a team-high three ground balls.

May 2: Down 12-5 entering the final 15 minutes of play, the Plattsbugh State men's lacrosse team were the architects of a furious comeback attempt, outscoring the number-one seeded and No. 11-ranked SUNY Cortland 7-2 in the fourth quarter only to come up short in a 14-12 setback to the Red Dragons in the 2015 SUNYAC Men's Lacrosse Championship Tournament finals on Saturday afternoon. In the Cardinals' 2015 season finale, senior Jack Felter amassed four points on three goals and one assist and freshman Ryan Hubbard pumped in two scores in the last 6:56 of the game. They were two of the seven Plattsburgh State student-athletes to record multi-point games. Saturday marked Plattsburgh State's third-consecutive appearance in the SUNYAC Tournament finals – all of which have come against the Red Dragons. The Cardinals wrap up their 2015 campaign with a record of 13-6 which includes a 4-2 showing in conference tilts. Although the visitors never led, they made sure to keep consistent pressure on the Red Dragons for the majority of the skirmish. Felter registered his first of the day in the opening quarter. Assisting on the Cardinals' first strike of the day was senior James Read who notched his first of three points on the day with the helper. Trailing 2-1 headed to the second frame, the Cardinals saw the SUNY Cortland tandem of Matt Savlov and Mike Cantelli fire in their second goals of the afternoon in the first 3:30 of the quarter, upping the Red Dragons' edge to 4-1. Refusing to go down quietly, the Cardinals pulled within one once again after Matt Renko and Austin Belz slung in scores. From there, the teams alternated scoring with Brendan Damm and Felter accounting for Plattsburgh State's goals. Felter's man-up laser cut the Red Dragons' advantage to 6-5 heading to halftime. Unfortunately for the Cardinals, the Red Dragons came roaring out of the mid-game break with intentions of putting the game out of reach for good. Benjamin Dunlavey completed his hat trick with a pair of scoring drives and T.J. deLyra slung in two of his own as part of a 6-0 scoring run for the home team which spanned the entire quarter. On the wrong end of a 12-5 deficit heading to the final frame, the Cardinals unleashed a desperate all-out assault on the Red Dragons in a bid to emerge as the victors. Mike Gay opened the Plattsburgh State scoring barrage with his seventh of the season, but goals from Zach Hopps and Billy Davis helped the Red Dragons maintain their eight-goal lead, 14-6, with 10:18 to go. The Cardinals' never-say-die attitude manifested itself in a big way through the final 8:54 of the battle. Belz initiated a 6-0 Plattsburgh State offensive blitz with his second of the day before Damm and Felter added scores 28 seconds apart to make it a 14-9 game with 7:06 to go. Back-to-back tallies from Hubbard and Read's sole missile of the day with 1:53 to go pulled the visitors within 14-12, but a costly turnover with 1:13 to go allowed the Red Dragons to run out the clock and capture their 23rd conference crown. Junior netminder and All-SUNYAC Tournament Team selection Matt Massaria did all he could to keep his squad in it, making 16 stops in 60 minutes of action. Cortland goalie Scott Tota faced 46 total shots and made 10 saves in the win. Although they didn't come up on the winning end of things, the Cardinals have very little to hang their heads about. Head coach Ryan Cavanagh took over as the program's all-time leader in coaching victories during the 2015 campaign and Massaria, Renko and senior Brendan Cefalu received spots on the All-SUNYAC Tournament Team as a result of their excellent play. In all, some 11 seniors which include the likes of Cefalu, Felter, Read, Chris Guzzetta, Cole Andersen, Andrew Tralongo, Andy Krolczyk, Tom Monahan, Peter Johann, Brendan Hickey and Frank Mauro, wrapped up their careers on Saturday afternoon. That group has led Plattsburgh State to four straight SUNYAC Tournament appearances and a record of 51-22 in its tenure.

April 1: Plattsburgh State junior attackman Brendan Damm scored four goals and assisted on a fifth, leading the Cardinals to a 11-7 NCAA Division III lacrosse victory over St. Lawrence University in a game played at Canton College on Wednesday. The Cardinals, now 8-4 on the season, snapped a two-game win streak for the Saints who were coming off an upset win over third-ranked Union College on Saturday. SLU fell to 5-5 on the season heading into a Liberty League road game at Vassar on Saturday. The Saints stayed close as sophomore Conor Healey, who was named the USILA Division III North Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in wins over Geneseo and Union had a goal and set up four others, but the Cardinals took a 7-6 lead with 2:30 left in the third period which started a run of five unanswered goals and a 11-6 Plattsburgh lead with 4:20 to go in the game. Connor Brimley scored with eight seconds left for the 11-7 final. The two teams were tied at 2-2 after one and Plattsburgh had a 6-5 lead at the half on Jack Felter's 24th goal of the year with 20 seconds to go in the second period. Jon Fairbanks tied it for the Saints at 7:30 of the third with his fourth off Healey's assist, but Damm and James Read had two goals each and Read added an assist in the 5-0 Plattsburgh run which put the game away. Saint goalie Andrew Butturini had 13 saves while Plattsburg's Matt Massaria made 12 stops. Plattsburg was one for five in man up opportunities while the Saints were scoreless in two tries and the Cardinals finished with a 34-29 edge in shots and a 25-15 margin in ground balls. Plattsburgh's Joey Kromer helped his team to 15 faceoff wins in 22 opportunities. In addition to Healey's five point outing, Jeremy Vautour had two goals, Luike DiLioso had a goal and an assist and Charlie Duprey had a goal to join Fairbanks and Brimley in the scoring column.

April 25: In the final game of the season, the Clarkson University Women's Lacrosse team fell to Vassar 14-8 on Saturday afternoon. Clarkson finished their season with an 8-8 overall record and a 3-6 record in the Liberty League while Vassar is 10-5 and 6-3 in conference games. Vassar scored the first goal of the game, but sophomore Ashley Flick was able to score at 21:46 to tie the game. That would be the last time the game was tied as Vassar uncorked five straight goals to take a 6-1 lead. Sophomore Kate Dillon scored off a pass from junior Christine Wright to make the score 6-2. The helper from Wright represented the 75th point of the year for her, which ties Clarkson's single-season record. Vassar would score with 23 seconds left to take a 7-2 lead into the break. Sophomore Paige Fayette scored the first goal of the second half to make it 7-3, but Vassar responded with two straight goals. Flick scored her second goal at 22:15, but Vassar scored the next three goals to make it 12-4. Clarkson would score four of the final six goals, including Fayette scoring two to give her a team high three in the game. Junior Stephanie Lynch and senior Danielle Faivus added the other two. Clarkson was outshot 26-18 and Vassar held a 12-9 advantage in ground balls. Junior Dani Tani played 45 minutes in goal, making five saves and junior Courtney Quinn played the final 15, making two stops in that time. Junior Emma Jeffery led the team with three ground balls with Fayette also scooping up a pair.      

April 10: A dominant first half from Rensselaer was too much for the Clarkson University Women's Lacrosse team as the Golden Knights fell 14-7 on Friday afternoon at Hantz Turf Field. Clarkson falls to 7-4 on the season with a 2-2 Liberty League record while RPI is now 5-4 and holds a 3-1 conference record. The Engineers struck first, opening the scoring at 26:28, followed by junior Emma Jeffery (Baldwinsville, NY) tying the score with a goal at 25:50. RPI scored the next two goals to take a 3-1 lead, before sophomore Ashley Flick (Watertown, NY) scored at 20:21 to make it 3-2. However, other than a goal by sophomore Paige Fayette (Theresa, NY) at 7:41, the rest of the half belonged to RPI. They scored six of the final seven goals of the half and took a commanding 9-3 lead into the break. Fayette scored her second goal to open the second half and freshman Taylor Collins (Syracuse, NY) followed with a goal of her own to make it 9-5. That would be as close as the Green and Gold got though, as RPI rang up five straight goals to make it 14-5. Sophomore Kate Dillon (St. Albans, VT) and senior Emma Oliver (Jericho, VT) scored for Clarkson in the closing minutes to make the final score 14-7. Clarkson was outshot 23-21 and RPI also held a 16-14 advantage in ground balls. Junior goalkeeper Danielle Tani (Heuvelton, NY) made two saves in the first half and junior goalkeeper Courtney Quinn (Hinsdale, MA) made three in the second half. Fayette led the team with two goals and junior Christine Wright (Watertown, NY) had three assists. Collins had a team-high three ground balls with juniors Hanna Gleason (Massena, NY)  and Mallory Fisher (Potsdam, NY) scooping up two apiece. Clarkson will return to action Saturday afternoon when they host Skidmore for a 3:00 pm game.

April 25:  The SUNY Potsdam women's lacrosse team (5-11, 2-6 SUNYAC) battled 17th-ranked Fredonia State (14-2, 7-1) for 60 minutes, before bowing to the Blue Devils 9-6 on Saturday afternoon. In her final game, senior captain Margaret Wall (Rochester, N.Y./Aquinas) scored two goals for the Bears and junior attack Bri McClusky (Watertown, N.Y./Immaculate Heart) added four assists to set the Potsdam single-season assists record with 34. Katie Kleine led the Blue Devils with three goals and two assists.   Kleine set up Katie Glagolev to open the scoring 2:55 into the game. Wall answered at 26:32 on a helper from McClusky to start a 3-0 run. The duo repeated the scoring at 14:19 and McClusky set up senior attack Bailey Weigel at 12:31 to give the Bears a 3-1 lead. Fredonia closed the half with three straight goals and took a 4-3 lead into the break. Shelby DePew scored two in a row and Audrey Yokopovich got the final goal of the half at 3:27. All three markers came on assists from Marissa Cussins.   Kristie Kleine put the Blue Devils up 5-3 at 27:42 of the final period, but senior captain Emily Petit (Queensbury, N.Y./Queensbury) countered to get Potsdam back within one 44 seconds later. Fredonia scored four straight in a 2:40 span to build a 9-4 lead with 16:39 to play. Katie Kleine scored all three of her goals during the stretch. With 41 seconds left, McClusky connected with sophomore attack Michaela Cole (Parishville, N.Y./Parishville-Hopkinton). Sophomore attack Katie Lapinski (Canton, N.Y./Hugh C. Williams) closed the scoring 21 seconds later for the 9-6 final.   In goal, Potsdam sophomore Devan Olschewske (Canandaigua, N.Y./Canandaigua) made 11 saves. Nicole Burrows earned the win with four saves for Fredonia.   The loss brings to a close the careers of seniors Wall, Weigel, Petit, Katie Putnam (Chittenango, N.Y./Chittenango) and Cheyenne Lazore (Akwesasne, N.Y./Salmon River).   Wall finishes her career ranked seventh in scoring with 106 points and fourth in goals with 90.   Weigel is fourth in scoring with 143 points, fifth in goals (89), third in assists (54) and first in draw controls (324).   Petit totaled 33 goals and 15 assists for 48 points. She finishes her career as the program's all-time leader in ground balls (170), caused turnovers (86) and games-started (57) and is sixth in draw controls (81).   Putnam recorded 11 points on 10 goals and an assist along with 69 ground balls, 28 caused turnovers and 11 draw controls.   Heading into next season, McClusky is already fifth on the Bears all-time scoring list with 130 points. She is ninth in goals (67) and second in assists (63).

April 9: Senior attack Bailey Weigel (East Amherst, N.Y./Williamsville East) scored the game-winning goal with 27 seconds left as the SUNY Potsdam women's lacrosse team (4-7) completed its 10-9 comeback victory over SUNY Canton (7-3) on Thursday afternoon. Weigel finished with three goals and an assist and junior attack Bri McClusky (Watertown, N.Y./Immaculate Heart) contributed a goal and three assists. Senior captain Margaret Wall (Rochester, N.Y./Aquinas) scored twice for the 100th and 101st points of her career. Sophomore goalie Devan Olschewske (Canandaigua, N.Y./Canandaigua) made 11 saves, including nine in the second half to help the Bears to their third straight win.   The teams cautiously felt each other out over the opening five minutes, but Kangaroos sophomore midfielder Hannah Christiansen (Lake View, N.Y./Frontier) broke the stalemate with a goal at 24:32. McClusky set up sophomore attack Michaela Cole (Parishville, N.Y./Parishville-Hopkinton) 24 seconds later to tie the score. At 21:42, McClusky gave Potsdam its first lead at 2-1 with an assist from sophomore midfielder Murphy Newman (Canton, N.Y./Berkshire School). Christiansen answered with two straight, the first on free position at 20:11, and the Roos were back up 3-2 at 18:27. McClusky set up Weigel nearly four minutes later to tie the game at three all.   Canton junior midfielder Robyn Carroll (Bowmanville, Ontario/St. Stephens) and Bears sophomore midfielder Alyssa Ferenczy (Williamsville, N.Y./Williamsville South) traded the next two goals, before the Roos closed the half on a 3-1 run. Canton sophomore attack Katelynn Nutter (Carthage, N.Y./Carthage) started the run and Carroll scored the final two. Wall reached the 100-point plateau on a pretty pass from sophomore attack Katie Lapinski (Canton, N.Y./Hugh C. Williams) at 5:50 and Potsdam trailed 7-5 at the break.   Chritiansen scored her fourth of the game 1:55 into final half and the Bears were down three goals and on the ropes. Fortunately, Olschewske raised her game when her teammates needed her most. Carroll picked up the ensuing draw control and went straight for the goal. Olschewske shut her down and then did it again a minute later. She then picked up the ground ball and started a successful clear that resulted a Newman goal to close the gap to 8-6. Weigel assisted on the play. Four minutes later, Olchewske stymied Canton's leading scorer Tressa Goolden (Canton, N.Y./Hugh C. Williams) and Weigel capitalized with a free-position goal to get the Bears within one. Olschewske stopped Carroll again with just over 18 minutes remaining, and Newman tied the game at 17:24 with a man-down, free-position attempt.   The teams went at each other without scoring for the next 12 minutes, largely due to excellent goaltending at both ends of the field. Olschewske racked up four more saves during the stretch including a stop of Carroll on a free position. Canton sophomore goalie Becca Kieffer (Lee Center, N.Y./Rome Free Academy) was nearly as good, recording two saves and a stop of Weigel on a free position.   It was Wall who finally broke the draw on a pass from McClusky with 6:28 left, but the Kangaroos weren't done. After another Kieffer save, Carroll connected with Nutter to get the Kangaroos even with 5:35 to play. Olschewske stopped a Goolden free position at 4:29 and Kieffer returned the favor for sophomore defender Hannah Keggins (Watertown, N.Y./Watertown) at 2:58. Kieffer made one final save with a minute to go, but with 27 seconds remaining, Weigel fought her way through crowd and fired the ball into the top of the net for the decisive tally. Keggins scooped up the final draw control and ran out the clock.   Kieffer finished with a game-high 12 saves.   The Bears topped the Kangaroos in shots (32-23), ground balls (22-14) and draw controls (14-7).   Potsdam is back in action when the Bears host Brockport at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday. The Potsdam will honor seniors Wall, Weigel, Emily Petit (Queensbury, N.Y./Queensbury), Katie Putnam (Chittenango, N.Y./Chittenango) and Cheyenne Lazore (Akwesasne, N.Y./Salmon River) for Senior Day prior to the game.

April 2: Senior captain Tressa Goolden (Canton, NY) had a hand in 11 different goals as the women's lacrosse team earned a 15-10 victory against visiting Houghton College on Thursday evening.   Both teams got off to a slow start offensively as the visitors opened the scoring 4:13 into the game on Elizabeth Westwood's 15th goal of the season. Goolden answered with her 32nd goal of the season just 11 seconds later to tie the game at one. Robyn Carroll (Bowmanville, ON) netted the Roos next three goals as the game was tied at four with 8:24 remaining in the opening half.   Four different players scored for the Roos in the final 2:54 of the half as they rattled off the final five goals of the half to take an 8-4 lead into intermission. Goolden posted two goals and four assists, while Carroll added four goals and a helper in the opening 30 minutes.   The teams traded a pair of goals in the opening four minutes of the second stanza but SUNY Canton would tally five of the next six goals to take a commanding 15-7 lead en route to the five goal victory.   Lora Ardoin tallied a game-high 9 ground balls and a team-best four caused turnovers. Goolden had a monster game with five goals and six assists, while Carroll finished with four goals and two assists. Megan Poupore (Massena, NY) recorded a hat trick and Lora Ardoin (Houston, TX) registered two goals and one assist.   Ardoin posted a game-high nine ground balls to go with a team-best four caused turnovers.
