Strong First Half Not Enough for Women's Lacrosse in 12-9 Loss to Ramapo

March 13th recap, photo courtesy of SUNY Maritime
The Maritime College women's lacrosse team came out strong in the first half of their home opener against Ramapo College on Wednesday night, but ultimately fell to the Roadrunners 12-9.

Krista Deleva (Sound Beach, N.Y./Miller Place) got things rolling for the Privateers with an unassisted goal just three minutes into the game and Maritime held that 1-0 lead until 21 minutes left in the half where a Ramapo goal tied the game. After both teams traded goals once again, Catherine Pfundstein (Deer Park, N.Y./Deer Park) recorded her 100th career point with a crafty goal in front of the net off a pass from Deleva. Deleva continued to facilitate the Maritime offense as she recorded five consecutive assists in the opening half to help the Privateers take a 7-5 lead into the locker room.

Pfundstein netted four goals in the first half, with three of them coming off a pass from Deleva. Also chipping in first half goals for Maritime were Sara Wright (East Islip, N.Y./East Islip) and Ciara Murphy (Pearl River, N.Y./Pearl River). Wright was also key for Maritime's success on offense as she took an 8-4 advantage in draw controls.

Unfortunately, Maritime's high-powered offense couldn't keep it going in the second half as the Roadrunners limited them to just two goals. Esmeralda Hernandez (Huntington, N.Y./Huntington) and the Privateers defense continued to limit Ramapo's offensive chances, but they were unable to hold onto the slim lead for the remainder of the second half.

Hernandez recorded 11 saves in the loss, but picked up some clutch second half shots to keep Maritime within striking distance. Pfundstein finished with five goals to lead all scorers, while Deleva set a new program record for assists in a game with six. Wright finished with 12 draw controls compared to just 10 from Ramapo, while also causing five turnovers and picking up nine ground balls.

"Obviously we wanted to come out with a win today, but I'm very happy with our first half performance against a tough Ramapo team," said head coach Alyssa Guido. "The team executed our game plan very well to start the game and I think there's a lot that we can build off of from today."

MacLeod Nets Gamewinner In Triple Overtime Thriller

Recap, photo courtesy of Vassar College
PORT CHARLOTTE, FL – Senior Fiona MacLeod (Garden City, NY) scored with 45 seconds left in the third overtime to give the Vassar women's lacrosse team a 15-14 victory over Westfield State on Tuesday evening.

The Brewers pick up their first win of the season and move to 1-2, while Westfield falls to 2-2. MacLeod finished with one goal and an assist, while Kelly Pushie (Mahwah, NJ) led Vassar with four goals and an assist. Alessandra Fable (Orlando, FL) tallied three goals and Caeli Porrette (Stony Point, NY), Grace Goodwin-Boyd (Florence, MA) and Ashley Roberts (Bala Cynwyd, PA) each netted two.

After Westfield scored five unanswered to open the game, the Brewers chipped back in from two goals from Goodwin-Boyd at 20:30 and 16:01. The Owls' Marissa Nimeskern notched the unassisted score at 14:56 to make it 6-2. Scores from Pushie and Porrette lessened the lead to 6-4 at 10:37, but Westfield responded off the draw to score 18 seconds later. The Brewers and Owls traded a pair of goals, but Vassar heated up in the final five minutes, closing the half on a 3-0 run to tie the game 8-8.

Westfield cut into the Vassar streak at 25:16 in the second to retake the lead. The Brewers went on another 3-0 run soon after with scores from Pushie, Fable and Melanie Silverman (Southbury, CT) to go up 11-9. At 7:54, Fable netted her third goal to give Vassar the 14-12 advantage. A quick burst from Westfield tied the game 14-14 with 37 seconds remaining to force overtime.

Westfield won the draw in the first overtime and the Owls made the first two shot attempts. Freshman goalkeeper Jackie Molloy (Buffalo Grove, IL) made a clutch save at 1:15 to keep Vassar alive. Goodwin-Boyd made one last shot on goal with four seconds, but the Owls' goalkeeper hung in tough.

The Brewers took the draw in the third, and quick shots from Goodwin-Boyd and Porrette kept the pressure on the Westfield defense. After a failed clear and turnover from Westfield, Adele MacEwen (Beverly, MA) scooped up the groundball at 1:34. The ball found its way to Tessa Waters (Skokie, IL) who picked up MacLeod for the final score.

Roberts led the Brewers with six draw controls, while MacLeod had five. Molloy had a team-high five groundballs, while Porrette had four and Tillie Newcomb (Denver, CO), Pushie and MacEwen each had three. Porrette was a key factor in the Vassar defense as well, causing five turnovers.

Molloy started the entire game in net, making eight saves.

Vassar Tripped Up At Maritime

Recap, photo courtesy of Vassar College
BRONX, N.Y. – The Vassar men's lacrosse team was outscored 5-1 in the first half, and despite a late push, could not overcome the early deficit. The Brewers scored three unanswered goal in the fourth quarter, but ultimately fell 8-5 to the Privateers on Wednesday evening. Senior James Thomas (Manhasset, NY) led Vassar with two goals, while sophomore Tomas Meade (Corvallis, OR) tallied a goal and an assist.

Maritime has won its fourth game in a row and moves to 4-1, while the Brewers slip to 2-3.

The Privateers got on the board 36 seconds after the opening faceoff and then scored twice more in the first quarter to go up 3-0 at 5:58. Thomas netted his first goal at 2:06, but the Brewers were held scoreless until the third afterward. Maritime notched four-straight from 13:08 in the second to 12:08 in the third to take a commanding 7-1 lead. Freshman Connor Deehan (Westwood, MA) finally sparked the Brewers when he netted the unassisted goal at 6:20.

Down 8-2 heading into the fourth, a Vassar come back looked challenging. Meade found Thomas early in the quarter to cut the lead to five, and then Dekker Stebel (San Diego, CA) made it an 8-4 game at 4:45. Meade was the final score off a Spencer Duryee (Whitehouse Station, NJ) assist.

Matthew Lowery (Bel Air, MD) won 11-of-17 faceoffs and scooped up a team-high eight groundballs. Cooper Vorel (Boonton Township, NJ) led the defense with two caused turnovers and also had three groundballs.

The Privateers' Matt DeMeo led all scorers with four goals and two assists. 

Senior Matt Boyd (Essex Fells, NJ) started in goal and recorded 10 saves. Maritime's Justin Weigold had 12. 

Vassar now begins their spring break trip to Florida. The first match will be against Liberty League foe St. Lawrence on Saturday in Tampa. Game is set to start at 4:30 p.m.

Four-Run Eighth Propels Vassar Past Plymouth State

Recap, photo courtesy of Vassar College
FORT MYERS, FL — The Vassar College baseball team (3-2) scored four runs in the eighth to overcome a 10-9 deficit and notch a 13-10 victory over Plymouth State (3-3) at Terry Park in the Brewers' final game of the Gene Cusic Collegiate Classic on Tuesday morning.

Vassar scored twice in the top of the first, but Plymouth State put up a seven-spot in the bottom half of the inning.  The Brewers immediately countered with three runs in the top of the second, though, to pull within 7-5.  Eric Trausch (San Diego, CA) ripped a two-run single with the bases loaded and two out before Taylor Smach (Manlius, NY) followed with an RBI single.  Bryan Rubin (Bryn Mawr, PA) then made it 7-6 with a homer to right center in the third.

Plymouth State added another run in the fourth, but Connor Levchuck (Greenlawn, NY) tied the game with a two-run double in the fifth.  After the Panthers regained the lead in the bottom of the fifth, Vassar pulled within 10-9 when Matt Martino (Hauppauge, NY) scored on a wild pitch in the sixth.

Martino and Trausch each singled to start the eighth.  Smach was up next, and he roped a double down the left field line to knock in both runs and give Vassar the lead.  The Brewers picked up a pair of insurance tallies on a two-out error.

Patrick Fitzgerald (Phoenix, MD) then slammed the door on Plymouth State, getting a double play with the tying run at the plate in the eighth, and another after a leadoff single in the ninth to earn the save.  Alex Hartnett (1-0) (Miami, FL) was credited with the win after striking out two while not allowing a hit in two scoreless innings.

"Today was a huge win four our team going into a two-day break here in Florida," Head Coach Matthew Righter said.  "Our hitters responded extremely well after yesterday's performance and our bullpen kept us in the game until the very end.  The keys to today's game were definitely mental toughness and clutch hitting.  Those are two things we talked about quite a bit after the Baruch game, and I thought our guys delivered."

Smach finished 4-for-4 at the plate with a pair of doubles, three RBIs and two runs scored.  Matt McGannon (Redding, CT) was 3-for-6 with two runs scored, and Martino also scored twice.  Rubin also scored twice, while Trausch and Levchuck both collected two RBIs.

For Plymouth State, Jimmy Zimolka went 3-for-5 with two RBIs and a run scored.  Three different Panthers scored twice, while Ryan Boldwin and James Salta both drove in a pair of runs.  Alex Larson (0-1) took the loss on the mound.

After beginning their Florida trip with five games in four days, the Brewers are off until Friday, when they take on North Central (3-0) at 5:30 p.m.  It will be Vassar's first contest at the Snowbird Baseball Classic in Port Charlotte.

Baseball Drops 5-1 Decision

Recap, photo courtesy of Vassar College
FORT MYERS, FL- Despite six hits on the day, the Vassar College baseball team dropped a tough 5-1 decision Monday morning to the Baruch College Bearcats.

In the nine-inning game, 17 Brewers saw the field with three pitching changes. Yet, Jake Silver (Wellington, FL) was credited with the loss.

The Brewers and the Bearcats were scoreless through the first three innings, but Vassar got on the board first in the top of the fourth, off a Connor Levchuck (Greenlawn, NY) walk forcing Matt Schwartz (Dix Hills, NY) home. The Brewers ended that inning with three runners left on base.

However, Baruch took advantage of their next at bat and secured two RBIs; a hit to left field and a single.

Trailing 3-1, in the top half of the seventh, Vassar had its best chance to level the game as Cameron Skudin (Melville, NY) and Sam Brinster (Long Beach, NY) were walked and Matt McGannon (Redding, CT) connected with a single. Though three straight fielding outs ended the half inning.

The Bearcats would maintain their lead and add two more to the scoreboard in the bottom seventh and eighth.

Jesse Mulham (Syosset, NY), Brent Shimoda (Aiea, HI), Elliot Layne (Los Angeles, CA), Daniel Bonfiglio (New York, NY), Skudin, and McGannon all registered one hit.

Softball Takes Two at La Verne

Recap, photo courtesy of Ithaca College
LA VERNE, Calif. – The Ithaca College softball team completed the sweep of La Verne on Thursday afternoon with a 6-5 win in game one and an 8-0, five-inning game two victory.

Win the win, the Bombers are now 5-1 on the season with four games left of the spring break trip to California.

Game 1 | Ithaca 6, La Verne 5

La Verne got on the board first when Katheryn Navarro sent a solo shot over the fence to take a 1-0 lead.

After two and one-half scoreless innings, the Bombers took the lead in the top of the fourth inning. First-year Daniella Mulvey started things off for Ithaca with a single right field before senior Annie Cooney drilled a two-run homer to put IC up 2-1.

The Leopards answered back in the bottom of the inning to tie the game, 2-2. Mikayla Mendoza led off with a double to right center and advanced to third on a wild pitch. She was ultimately driven in by a Carly Condon sacrifice fly to right field.

La Verna put together a two-run bottom of the fifth to take a 4-2 lead over Ithaca. Navarro led off with a single up the middle and headed to third on a Justice Borden sacrifice bunt. Gabriella Underwood drove in Navarro for the first run of the inning before scoring on a Mendoza trip to right.

After a scoreless sixth inning, the Bombers put up a huge seventh inning. Vanessa Brown started things off with a single before Gabby Laccona sent a shot to left field. Abby Shields then drew a walk to load the bases and Mulvey blasted a grand slam to bring all runners in and give Ithaca a 6-4 advantage.

La Verne put another run on the board in the bottom of the seventh inning, starting with a Shelby Tevis walk. Tevis advanced to second on a Mendoza single and scored on an error. The Bombers forced the final two outs to preserve the lead and take the win.

Mulvey finished the game 2-for-3 with four RBI and two runs scored while Cooney went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored.

Emily Holden picked up her first win of the year after coming on to pitch three innings of relief.

Game 2 | Ithaca 8, La Verne 0

The Bombers came out firing on all cylinders in the second game of the day to score seven runs in the first inning.

Brown led off with a single before stealing second to put herself in scoring position. Laccona ripped a single up the middle to score Brown before headed to second on an Alex Wright single.

Sophomore Haley White followed that up with a single and advanced on an error, allowing Laccona and Wright to score and take a 3-0 lead.

Both Cooney and Ellie Murray drew walks before Alex Kimmel drove in White and moved the runners up a base. Cooney and Murray both scored on a Nikkey Skuraton bunt and a fielding error.

A Laccona single to left field pushed Skuraton across home plate and gave the Bombers a 7-0 advantage.

Ithaca put up another run in the top of the fifth inning after three and one-half scoreless innings. Cooney blasted her second home run of the day to put IC up 8-0, which ultimately forced the end of the game in the fifth inning.

Both Laccona and White finished 2-for-3 with two RBI and one run scored while Cooney went 1-for-2 with two runs scored and one RBI.

Fleming earned her second win of the season, striking out four in five innings of work.

No. 1 Gettysburg Tops No. 19 Women’s Lacrosse in Neutral-Site Clash

Recap, photo courtesy of Ithaca College
SPARKS, Md. – The 19th-ranked Ithaca College women's lacrosse was back in action on Thursday afternoon looking to score another big non-league result when it clashed with two-time defending champion No. 1 Gettysburg in a neutral-site contest at the United States Lacrosse Headquarters in Sparks, Maryland. Unfortunately, the Bombers were unable to sustain the momentum from their big road win over then-No. 20 Scranton over the weekend, as Gettysburg pulled away in a 20-9 result at the historic Tierney Stadium. The loss evens Ithaca's record at 2-2 during the early part of this season.

Ultimately, the contest boiled down to two significant areas, as Gettysburg held decisive advantages in draw controls and free-position chances that proved to be the biggest differentiator between the two sides. The Bullets dominated the draw all day, which established a big edge in offensive zone time. Gettysburg out-paced Ithaca 19-to-3 in the draw during the opening half and finished the contest with a 24-to-6 edge in the crucial statistic. The Bullets finishing was also clinical against IC's sophomore keeper Mackenzie Schade, who definitely was facing the most dynamic attacking group of her young collegiate career. Gettysburg scored on 20-of-25 shots on goal in the game, many of which came from point-blank opportunities through deft passing or free-position chances.

It was an energetic start to the game for both sides, as the Bombers and Bullets took to the field turf

MACON, GA – Addy Szczerba threw a complete-game four hitter in the second game of a doubleheader on Wednesday night to give the University of Rochester a split of a doubleheader against Wesleyan College of Georgia. UR won the nitecap, 4-1, after Wesleyan took the opener, 7-2.
