Prevost, White Lead No. 2 Le Moyne Past Rollins

Syracuse, N.Y. Junior attackman Tyler Prevost (Watertown, N.Y./Immaculate Heart/Onondaga C.C.) recorded three points to lead second-ranked Le Moyne to a 5-2 win over Rollins on Sunday morning at the Thomas J. Niland Athletic Complex.

Following a Rollins slashing penalty on the opening face-off, sophomore midfielder Andrew Chadderdon (Auburn, N.Y./Auburn) found the back of the net on the extra-man opportunity to get the Dolphins on the scoreboard at the 14:25 mark. Less than a minute later, freshman midfielder Alec Westerhoff (Lagrange Park, Ill./Lyons Township/Bridgton Academy) registered his sixth goal of the season off a feed from Prevost.

After junior goalkeeper Jeff White (Buffalo, N.Y./Canisius HS), junior defensive midfielder Conor Regin (Syracuse, N.Y./West Genesee/Onondaga C.C.) took the outlet pass and went coast-to-coast for his third goal of the campaign at the 6:56 mark of the first quarter.

Le Moyne extended its lead to four with 11:42 left in the second quarter as sophomore attackman Chris Button (Fairport, N.Y./Fairport) recorded his seventh goal of the year off a feed from Prevost.

The Tars got on the scoreboard with 10:03 remaining in the second quarter as Stephen DeFlumeri scored off a pass from Chris Ross.

Prevost closed out the scoring in the first half by driving from the goal-line extended on the right side and netting his eight goal of the season with 5.5 seconds remaining in the stanza.

After neither team scored in the third quarter or over the first nine minutes of the fourth quarter, James Libutti backed in his defender and rolled the ball across the goal line from just off the crease to make the score 5-2 with 5:58 left.

White finished the game with six saves, three of which came in the first quarter, while the other three came in the second quarter. Andrew Sheerin recorded 10 saves for the Tars to keep his team within striking distance.

Le Moyne (7-0), which scored its fewest goals since a 5-4 victory on March 11, 2009 at Merrimack, whose defense was coached by current Rollins defensive coordinator Chris Lewis, returns to the field on Saturday at Saint Michael's at 1:00 p.m.
