Colorado College Falls on the Road at Sewanee

MEMPHIS Junior midfielder Henri Halle struck for a career-high five goals, but Colorado College dropped a 14-10 decision to Sewanee on Sunday.

Michael Morris scored three of his four goals during the first half to help Sewanee build a 7-2 lead after 30 minutes, and his final marker with 1:02 remaining in the game ended any hope of a CC comeback.

After Sewanee took a nine-goal lead on a George Bukawyn's man-up marker with 1:51 left in the third quarter, Colorado College scored five straight to pull to within 12-8 with 4:03 to play.

The teams traded goals during the final two minutes and Sewanee hung on for its first-ever victory against CC.

Matthew Stiefel and Davis Brown had a goal and an assist for Sewanee, which finished with a 36-35 edge in total shots.

Chase Murphy made four saves for Colorado College during the first 30 minutes, while Ryan Goodall stopped one shot in the second half.

Sayre Thomas won 17 of 24 faceoffs and grabbed a game-high 11 ground balls.

CC finished with a 37-32 edge in ground balls and won 17 of 27 faceoffs.

Sewanee converted on three of its five man-up opportunities, while Colorado College went 1 for 2.

Taylor Paul had a goal and an assist for CC, which slipped to 1-1.

Colorado College is idle until Feb. 28, when it plays Southwestern University in the 2014 Patriot Cup in Dallas.
