Quakers Topple Bears, 12-10
April 14, 2007
Providence, Rhode Island - Despite a game high four goals by Brown freshman attackman Thomas Muldoon (Oakton, VA), the Penn men's lacrosse team earned a 12-10 Ivy League win over the Bears with sophomore attackman Craig Andrzejewski registering seven points for the Quakers. The loss drops the Bears to 6-5 overall, 1-3 in Ivy play, while the Quakers extended their record to 6-5 and complete Ivy League play at 3-3.
Brown jumped out to a 3-1 lead after one quarter on goals by senior David Madeira (Norwich, VT), senior Michael Bernard (Upper Arlington, OH) and Muldoon, sandwiched around a goal by the Quakers David Cornbrooks.
Penn seemed to take control of the game by scoring five unanswered goals in the first 7:40 of the second quarter, including two by Andrzejewski. Muldoon's goal with 3:50 left in the second quarter enabled the Bears to trail 6-4 at the half.
Brown pulled to within a goal of the Quakers twice in the third quarter, the last time, 8-7, with 8:31 remaining in the quarter on a goal by sophomore Kyle Hollingsworth (Darien, CT). The Quakers scored three unanswered goals by Alex Salihi, Glenn Goebels and Andrzejewski with 18 seconds left in the quarter to break the game open, 11-7.
Muldoon registered six points for the Bears, scoring four goals and handing out two assists to complete a week where he compiled 10 points. Hollingsworth and senior Will Davis (Falls Church, VA) finished with two goals each.
Bears' sophomore Jordan Burke (Potomac, MD) made 17 saves in net as the Quakers out-shot the Bears by a 37-35 margin. Perhaps the biggest statistical factor in the game were the face-off totals, where the Quakers captured 18 of the game's 26 face-offs.
Andrzejewski, the Ivy League's leading scorer, scored three goals and handed out four assists. Cornebrooks added three goals and Salihi netted two goals for the Quakers.
The Bears return to the field next Friday evening for a non-league match-up against Hartford. Game time is 7:00 p.m. at Stevenson Field.
