Navy Picks up Patriot League Win over Lafayette

The Mids, who have struggled in the fourth quarter this season, made a statement by scoring four goals in just over three minutes to open the final stanza and salt away the game. Hull played a huge role in the run, scoring two goals and adding an assist on a third. Had senior middie Nikk Davis (Cockeysville, Md.) not dodged his defenseman to get free, Hull would have been credited with a second assist as he found Davis who tabbed his second goal of the year.

Hull, who produced his fourth hat trick of the season, led all scorers with his eight-point performance. His five assists not only go down as a career high, it also marked the most assists by a Navy player since Andy Warner distributed six in last year's win over Towson. Voumard and Kiernan finished the game with two goals apiece, while Bryce Dabbs (Damascus, Md.), Davis, Reynolds, Durkin and Heneveld also chipped in goals for the Mids.

Kiernan played one of the best games of his young career. While he notched a pair of goals, defensively he caused four Lafayette turnovers and picked up five ground balls.

"Pat makes a huge impact in the game for us," said Sowell. "We definitely felt it when he went out with his broken hand. It took him a few weeks to get back into it, but to have him back in game shape mades a big, big difference for us. It's definitely good to have him on our side!"

Junior close defenseman Austin Miller (North Bethesda, Md.) turned in a pair of takeaways and picked up three ground balls. Meanwhile, Wickham surrendered seven goals while making 11 saves in goal.

Lafayette was led by Prusoff, Colin Serling and Will Heffernan who scored two goals apiece, while Andrusko and Jake Hyatt split time in goal where the tandem made a combined six saves and each gave up six goals.

The Midshipmen will be back in action on Tuesday when they make the short trip to Towson, Md. to face the Tigers of Towson at 7:30 pm. The game will be carried live by 1430 WNAV with Pete Medurst calling the action.
