No. 4 Stevenson Holds off St. Mary's in CAC Semifinals

The Mustangs owned a four-goal lead at 7:38 of the second period and the score remained a 5-1 Stevenson advantage at halftime as the Mustangs were held to three shots and committed two turnovers.

Mull and Dehm switched roles in cutting Stevenson's lead to 5-2 at 13:25 in the third quarter as Mull finished off Dehm's pass. The Mustangs scored consecutive goals in a 1:12-minute span to stake a 7-2 lead at 6:07. St. Mary's quickly responded with back-to-back goals in a six second span with tallies from Long and D'Ambrogi for a three-goal game at 4:35. Reid answered for Stevenson at 1:35 before Mull and Long closed the gap to two in the final 27 seconds of the stanza.

Junior midfielder Albert Mitchell (Shrewsbury, Mass./Saint John's) dominated the face-offs tonight as Mitchell won 14 of 20 at face-off X. Mitchell and senior long-stick middie Peter Windsor (Towson, Md./St. Paul's) each scooped up a game-high five loose balls.

Shots were equal at 28 apiece while Stevenson posted a 31-27 edge in ground balls.

The St. Mary's defense killed four of six Mustang extra-man opportunities while senior goalie Stu Wheeler (Baltimore, Md./St. Paul's School) came up with nine saves, including six in the second half.
