GREENSBORO, NC (March 27, 2010)- The Hampden-Sydney lacrosse team put together a complete effort today in their game against Greensboro College, topping the Pride by a score of 15-5. The five goals allowed was the Tiger defense's best performance so far this season, and the 15 goal output was also the second most goals scored in a game this year. With the win, Hampden-Sydney maintained their perfect road record so far this season.

Senior captain Kyle Jett (Suffolk, VA/Nansemond Suffolk) set the tone for the Tigers early, scoring a goal four minutes into the action. Sophomore Micah Keller (Richmond, VA/Christchurch) followed Jett's goal with a strike of his own less than 30 seconds later, before Jett scored again with eight minutes left in the first quarter to give Hampden-Sydney an early 3-0 lead. Greensboro was able to get on the scoreboard one minute later to make the first quarter score 3-1 in favor of the visitors.

The Tigers were able to dominate the majority of the second quarter, scoring five straight goals to start the action. Freshman Brad Mostowy (Atlanta, GA/Trinity Pawling) started the second period scoring with a goal just one minute into play.

Jett struck again minutes later to give him a hat trick for the day, before junior Cole Hawthorne (Richmond, VA/Collegiate) added a goal with nine minutes left on the scoreboard. Senior Andrew O'Shea (Richmond, VA/Collegiate) struck next for the Tigers, before Keller capped the spurt with his second tally of the day to make the score 8-1 with two minutes left in the half. Greensboro, however, did not give in and fought back with three quick goals before the half to make the score 8-4.

The Tigers were able to use some half time motivation to alleviate any doubt about who was in control of the game, scoring the first four goals of the period to put some distance between the two teams. Sophomore Ben Clarke (Virginia Beach, VA/Norfolk Academy) had an outstanding quarter, scoring Hampden-Sydney's first three goals over a nine minute span. Mostowy struck again with five minutes remaining in the quarter before Greensboro found the net late to make the third quarter score 12-5 in favor of the Tigers.

Hampden-Sydney continued to wear Greensboro down in the fourth quarter, adding three more goals to secure the victory. Clarke scored the first goal to give him four on the day, before O'Shea tacked on two more to also give him a hat trick on the day and the Tigers a 15-5 win.

On the day, Clarke led the Tigers with four goals while Jett and O'Shea both added three. Keller paced Hampden-Sydney with three assists, while Jett and freshman Ryan Martin (Midlothian, VA/Cosby) each contributed two. On the defensive end, senior captain Mark Bagby (Boston, MA/Marshfield) was stellar in the goal, making 12 saves while allowing only five goals.
