NEW LONDON, Conn. -- Tufts University (5-0, 2-0) collected a 9-5
victory at Connecticut College (0-5, 0-4) Wednesday afternoon in NESCAC game. Sophomore Clem McNally (Far Hills, NJ), the
current Inside Lacrosse Nike Division III Player of the Week,
tallied a hat-trick and senior midfielder Chris Connelly
(Wilton, CT) chipped in with two goals for the Jumbos, who are
ranked #9 in the latest USILA Division III Poll. Junior midfielder
Matt Flanagan (Somerset, NJ) tallied two goals for the Camels. Sean
Driscoll (Peabody, MA) had a goal and an assist for the hosts.
The Jumbos took a 3-2 lead after one quarter of play. Tight
defense and terrific goaltending on both sides kept both teams off
the board for the most of the second quarter. With 10 seconds
remaining in the half, Chase Bibby (Marblehead, MA) fed
McNally for a one-timer and the Jumbos had a 4-2 lead at the
intermission. McNally provided the only goal of the third quarter
and Tufts had a 5-2 lead as the teams headed into the final 15
minutes of regulation.
With 12:33 to play, Camel sophomore Jesse Stevenson (Marblehead,
MA) tallied his sixth score of the season for the hosts to make it a
5-3 contest. But McNally had all of the answers on this day and
added his third goal of the afternoon with 11:34 remaining to push
the Tufts lead to three, 6-3. The visitors went on for the 9-5
Sophomore Matt Harrigan (Darnestown, MD), the reigning
NESCAC Player of the Week, stopped 10 shots in net for the Jumbos.
Mark Moran (Greenwich, CT) had nine saves and four ground balls in
goal for the hosts.
With the victory, the Jumbos completed an unblemished five-game
road swing to open the season. They will host Trinity for a 1:00
p.m. game in Medford on Saturday. Connecticut College will travel to
Amherst for a 1:00 p.m. game Saturday afternoon.
