Gibaldi Saves 19, But Wagner Still Falls to Manhattan

In the third quarter, the Kelly Green and white kept up the intensity, scoring two out of the gates from Jensen and freshman midfielder Brett Madarasz (Smithtown, N.Y./Smithtown West) to expand their lead to 7-2 with 12:12 remaining in the quarter. One of their most prolific 15 minute intervals of the season, the Jaspers outscored the Seahawks 7-4 in the frame to build a 12-6 advantage entering the fourth.

Finishing strong, Manhattan found the net three more times in the final quarter, including the third of the contest for Jensen and the second for Jarvis and McGrath to pull away for the 15-8 victory.

One of the more complete games of the 2011 campaign, the Jaspers held advantages over the Seahawks in shots (43- 38), ground balls (25-18) and face-offs (21-4). Manhattan was 1-4 on extra-man opportunities while Wagner was 1-5.

Manhattan returns to action Saturday afternoon when they travel south to take on no. 15 Villanova in a big non- conference matchup. Opening face-off is set for 1:00 p.m.
