Warriors Defeated at Albright

READING, Pa. Sophomore Sean Reilly (Corning, N.Y./Corning Painted Post West) moved into the top 10 in school history in career assists and sophomore Alex Wylly (Columbus, Ohio/Worthington Kilbourne) stopped a career-high 20 shots, but Lycoming fell to Albright, 17-8, in Commonwealth Conference action on Saturday, April 6.

Reilly used three helpers to give him 47 in a career, moving him into a tie with Brad Schaeffer (2007-10) and Matt Lando (2006-07) for 10th in school history. He is three assists away from becoming the ninth player in school history to reach 50 in a career.

The Warriors (3-8 overall, 2-2 Commonwealth) jumped out to a 2-0 lead, as junior Steve Campaniello (Rochester, N.Y./Gates-Chili) and freshman Mike Cooper (Riva, Md./Archbishop Spalding) dented the twice in the first three minutes. After Albright got on the board, Campaniello scored his second goal of the game with 2:44 left in the first quarter, making it 3-1.

However, Albright (9-1 overall, 3-0 Commonwealth) closed the half on a 7-1 run. Lycoming closed within three goals when Cooper found junior Matt McCaffer (Marcellus, N.Y./Marcellus). McCaffer added another goal with 8:11 left to keep it a three-goal game, but Albright scored eight of the final 10 goals of the game to take the 17-8 win.

Cooper posted two goals and an assist and both McCaffer and Campaniello each added two goals for the Warriors. Senior Tom Lurie (Bel Air, Md./Bel Air) posted a goal and assist and freshman Michael Wagner (Pasadena, Md./St. Mary's) led the defense with four ground balls and four caused turnovers.

Ryan Turner led the Lions with seven goals and an assist and Mike Southwick added three assists. Both T.J. Holston and Phil Potter posted two goals. Darian Meador won 21 faceoffs and grabbed 10 ground balls. Joe Devinney and Michael Donohoe each caused three turnovers. In net, Jordan DeZenzo earned the win, posting seven saves. Andrew Torak notched two stops in the last 9:52.

The game was penalty-laden, with the Warriors recording nine penalties and the Lions recording eight, although both teams capitalized just twice each.

The Warriors get back on the field on Saturday, April 13, when they host Commonwealth Conference rival Widener at 1:00 p.m. at the Shangraw Athletic Complex.
