#14 Brown Laxers Take On St. Joseph’s

Providence, Rhode Island -  Coming off a thrilling overtime win over Hartford on Wednesday, the 14th-ranked Brown’s men’s lacrosse team will travel to Philadelphia, PA, to face St. Joseph’s for the first time ever. The Bears (1-1) will be playing their third game of the season, while the Hawks (0-6) will be playing their seventh game of 2010.

 

Junior David Hawley’s fifth goal of the season, in overtime, lifted the Bears to a 13-12 overtime victory over Hartford. Junior Andrew Feinberg drew a crowd behind the net and spotted Hawley streaking toward the net.  Hawley took the pass and planted the ball in the back of the net for the victory.

 

The Bears don’t seem to have much problem getting onto the scoreboard and are averaging 12.5 goals scored per game. Hawley and senior All-American attackman Thomas Muldoon have netted five goals each to lead the Bears, while senior Reade Seligmann is Brown’s top scorer with four goals and six assists.

 

Feinberg netted four goals against Hartford, while sophomore Parker Brown played a major role for the Bears, netting his first career goals and finishing with a hat-trick.

 

Head coach Lars Tiffany has been please with the play of senior All-American defenseman Peter Fallon, who came up with a take-away in the defensive zone on Hartford’s first possession in overtime, allowing Brown to move the ball downfield for the game winning goal.  Freshman defenseman Roger Ferguson has been a pleasant surprise and is the Brown leader with nine ground balls, including seven against Hartford.

 

Next Week:  Following Saturday’s game against St. Joseph’s, the Bears will be off for a week before opening their Ivy League season against Harvard on Saturday, March 20th in Boston.
