Pioneers Fall to Hornets in Completion of Suspended Game

The Alfred State lacrosse team traveled to Broome CC to complete their contest that was suspended last Wednesday due to lightning.  Alfred trailed 6-1 at half and was never able to fully recover and fell 11-5.

The game resumed today with the Pioneers (3-7, 2-3 Region III West) trailing 6-1 at the start of the 3rd quarter.  The blue & gold scored the first three goals of the quarter and cut the lead to 6-4 but never could get any closer.  Broome led 8-4 at the end of three and never looked back.

Five different players found the back of the net for Alfred.  Brandon Griffin (Corning East) finished with a goal and an assist while Keegan Phalen (East Aurora), Nate Spoor (Penn Yan), Bradley Murdoch (Auburn), and Dave Ford (Elmont/Sewanhaka) all scored once.  Frank Martin (Whitney Point) and Jonathan Prendergast (Freeport) each picked up an assist.

Mike Alessi (Liverpool) made 13 saves in net for the blue & gold.

Alfred plays their final home game of the season on Wednesday when they host Niagara CCC. Opening faceoff is slated for 4 p.m. at Pioneer Stadium.
