Trill's Six Points Carry Marywood Past Centenary

Brandon Terlizzi gave Marywood a 1-0 lead just 2:33 into Saturday's contest with an unassisted goal but Centenary equalized on a Cameron Gunn man-up goal just two minutes later. The Cyclones added the game's next two goals to lead 3-1 with 6:35 to play in the opening stanza before Trill scored off a feed from Dante Frederico at the 3:59 mark to bring the Pacers back to within a goal.

Conor Nolan restored Centenary's two-goal lead with 8:02 to play in the second quarter, but back-to-back goals by Trill and Terlizzi within the next 57 seconds brought Marywood back even. Trill would set up Marcus Janda for a goal with 4:39 remaining in the half that put the Pacers in front and Janda returned the favor for Trill just over two minutes later as the freshman completed his hat-trick to put Marywood up 6-4, a lead the visitors would hold at the halftime break.

Trill scored his fourth goal of the game at the 9:20 mark of the third quarter off a Riley Dobel assist to mark the only scoring in the stanza, as Marywood held a 7-4 advantage heading into the final 15 minutes of play.

Gunn scored a pair of goals separated by just 54 seconds to cut Centenary's deficit to 7-6 with 8:16 left in regulation, but Taylor Goldson netted the eventual game-winning goal unassisted with 2:52 remaining and the Pacers on an extra-man opportunity. The Cyclones did not go away quietly though as Robert Nuzzolese scored with 1:59 left on the clock, but Trill iced the game with his fifth marker of the afternoon, again assisted by Dobel, 55 seconds before the final horn.

Trill finished the afternoon with six points on five goals and one assists while the Pacers also got two point efforts from Terlizzi (2 goals), Janda (1 goal, 1 assist), and Dobel (2 assists). Terlizzi also went 9-14 on faceoffs for the afternoon for Marywood, who held a 45-27 advantage in shots for the game and won the groundball battle 45-32.

John Pelligrini led all players with eight groundballs while Nick Johnson added six groundballs and three caused turnovers in front of goalie Nicholas Cornella, who made seven saves to notch his fifth win of the season.

Gunn led Centenary with five points on four goals and one assists while Nolan finished with four points on a goal and three helpers. Kyle McVay took the loss in goal for the Cyclones despite turning aside 12 shots from the Pacers.

Marywood will be back in action on Wednesday afternoon when they visit Immaculata University for a CSAC battle scheduled for 4:00 p.m. in Immaculata, PA.
