Visiting Storm Washes out Shenandoah

WINCHESTER, Va. - Visiting Keuka College kept Shenandoah University winless on the 2010 men's lacrosse season with an 11-8 non-league victory Saturday afternoon on Sprint Field at Shentel Stadium.

After the Hornets (0-3) scored the opening three goals of the game in the first 15:06, Keuka (1-0) stormed back to take a 4-3 lead by the middle of the second period.

Shenandoah then countered with another three-goal run before Mark Button answered for the Storm 29 seconds before halftime to make it 6-5 SU.

The two teams would then be knotted at 6-6 and 7-7 before the visitors finally took the lead for good by sandwiching a 4-0 spurt from the 4:22 mark of the third until the 2:46 mark of the fourth.

Freshman Matt Hendrickson closed out the scoring with an unassisted tally for the hosts 16 seconds before the final horn.

Senior Kevin Totaro led Shenandoah with a goal and three assists while Hendrickson added two goals and an assist.

Goalie Andrew Fleischmann had five saves.

SU outshot Keuka 46-28, held a 40-29 advantage in groundballs and won 14 of 21 faceoffs.
