March 27, 2007

Box Score

Burlington, Vermont - Senior David Madeira (Norwich, VT) scored a career high six goals to power Brown to a 13-4 men's lacrosse victory over Vermont Tuesday afternoon. The win lifts the Bears to 5-2 overall, while the Catamounts fall to 3-5 overall.

Brown showed no ill-effects from its four-overtime game against Dartmouth on Saturday, leading the Catamounts from start to finish. The Bears jumped out to a 3-1 first quarter advantage on goals by Madeira, freshman Collins Carey (Clarksville, MD) and freshman Thomas Muldoon (Oakton, VA) and never looked back.

Leading 4-3 with 10:50 left in the second quarter, Madeira scored with 5:00 remaining in the half to ignite a 6-0 Brown scoring run over the next 21:53, to give the Bears a 10-3 advantage with 13:07 to play in the fourth quarter on Muldoon's second goal. Madeira had three goals in the scoring run, while sophomore Jack Walsh (Chevy Chase, MD) and junior Jeff Hall (Northport, NY) added one goal each.

Despite the lopsided score, Bears sophomore goalie Jordan Burke (Potomac, MD) was kept busy all day, making 19 saves in 53:30. Senior Chandler Clarke (Lloyd Harbor, NY) made one save in a relief role for the Bears.

Muldoon added two assists to go with his two goals, while senior Tyler Gaffney (Madison, NJ) also scored for the Bears. Senior Alex Buckley (Ridgewood, NJ) and junior Brian Asher (Chevy Chase, MD) added two assists each.

The catamounts were led by Dan Zwirks, who scored two goals.

Brown will be back in action again on Saturday, hosting #18 Notre Dame in Providence. Game time is 12:00 noon at Stevenson Field.
