Grizzlies Top Argos in Teams' Second Meeting

BELMONT, Calif.-Adams State used an 8-3 second-half to pull away from the Notre Dame de Namur Argos Sunday afternoon in WILA play. The Grizzlies defeated the Argos by a 17-10 final and improved to 3-7 overall on the season, including a 2-3 mark in WILA play.

The Grizzlies defeated Notre Dame de Namur exactly one week ago at home by a 16-7 final and defeated the Argos once again today, led by five goals from Seth Stowell (Lakeside, Calif.) and four goals from Mike Telles (Henderson, Nev.).

Adams State jumped all over NDNU early, as Telles put a shot into the back of the net just 2:44 into the contest on an assist from Ian Morrison (Menlo Park, Calif.). Morrison came up big for the Grizzlies, finishing with three goals and three assists on the day.

Just eight seconds later, Bryden Pelletier (Lantzville, B.C., Canada) assisted Telles on his second goal of the day to give the Grizzlies a quick 2-0 lead. Pelletier also was strong for Adams State, winning 12 of 21 face-offs on the afternoon.

Less than a minute later, Stowell scored an unassisted goal, his first of the afternoon. Both teams would trade scores for the rest of the first-half, with ASU taking a 9-7 lead into halftime.

The Argo's Jordan Wagner would score two quick goals as the third period got underway to tie the game at 9-9. That's when the Grizzlies took over, outscoring the Argos 8-1 over the final twenty minutes of the game.

ASU, who has struggled with penalties on the season, played a very disciplined match against NDNU, as they were penalized only three times for a total of just two minutes.

On the defensive side, Jordan Stillwagon (Littleton, Colo.) and Kyle Post (Centennial, Colo.) each came up with six groundballs and each player caused one turnover on the afternoon.

Alec Hamlin (Grass Valley, Calif.) played in the goal for Adams State for a majority of the game, coming up with nine saves in the process.

Adams State will finish their home season this coming Thursday against Tampa (Fla.), with the first draw scheduled for 3:00 p.m.
