No. 7 Stevens Outguns Muhlenberg to Go 4-0

Maroon netted his seventh goal of the year halfway through the final quarter on an unassisted tally. Dupras then posted his fifth and sixth scores of the game in less than a minute to put the game out of reach for the Mules. Dupras' fifth goal was unassisted, while his sixth was assisted by Scrutchfield.

Muhlenberg would not go down without a fight, as it made a late game push to try and cut into the seven-goal deficit, but there proved to not be enough time on the clock. Despite scoring three consecutive goals, the Mules were out of time and lost, 18-14.

At the face-off 'X', senior midfielder Michael Steinhauser (Boonton Twp., N.J.) won 19 of 31 face-offs and scooped up a game-best nine groundballs. Senior defender Matt Marks (Cortland, N.Y.) forced four turnovers and picked up eight groundballs, while sophomore long stick midfielder Tim Culloty (Mahwah, N.J.) chipped in seven groundballs and two caused turnovers.

In cage for the Ducks, senior Eric Yando (Baldwinsville, N.Y.) picked up his fourth straight victory with six saves in 54:25 of action. Yando gave way to freshman Matthew Deiner (Millstone Twp., N.J.) who stopped one shot in 5:35 in net.

The Ducks controlled every statistical category in the contest. They held a distinct, 58-39, advantage in shots, picked up nine more groundballs, 42-33, won 21 of 35 face-offs and were a perfect 15 for 15 in clear attempts to Muhlenberg's 16 of 23. Stevens also scored on five of its eight extra man chances.

Stevens will travel to Beverly, Mass. for a top-15 showdown against Endicott College on March 10 at 1:00 p.m. for its next game.
