No. 8 Ducks Deal with Rain, Eastern Connecticut

Dorne then took a pass from Hofrichter with just under five minutes left to complete his offensive performance and gave the Ducks a 13-8 stronghold on the game. Philippi wrapped up the Stevens scoring with 3:49 to go and staked the Ducks to their largest lead of the game.

Stevens seemed to lose some composure late in the game and allowed the Warriors to tally two man-up scores in the final minute of regulation which eventually led to the final score of the contest, 14-10.

On the defensive end, senior midfielder Michael Steinhauser (Boonton Twp., N.J.) controlled possession for the Ducks, winning 16 of 24 face-offs and scooped up a game-high 10 groundballs. Steinhauser also caused a turnover. Also contributing on the other end of the field for Stevens were senior defender Matt Marks (Cortland, N.Y.) and sophomore long stick midfielder Tim Culloty (Mahwah, N.J.), who combined for 13 groundballs and four caused turnovers. Marks picked up five groundballs and forced a turnover, while Culloty scooped up eight and caused three Warrior turnovers.

In net for Stevens was senior Eric Yando (Baldwinsville, N.Y.). Yando played all 60 minutes in cage for the Ducks and recorded nine saves and a groundball to improve his early season record to 2-0.

The Ducks are back on the field on Sunday, March 4, when they host No. 18 Springfield College at 1:00 p.m. on De Baun. Springfield will be a 2-0 mark into Sunday's matchup after defeating Nazareth College, 15-7 on February 25.
