SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Junior attackman Tyler Prevost scored three goals and dished out three assists to lead No. 2 Le Moyne to a 12-0 victory against Southern New Hampshire in Northeast-10 Conference action on Friday afternoon at the Thomas J. Niland Athletic Complex.
Sophomore attackman Andrew Chadderdon got the Dolphins on the scoreboard with 4:23 left in the first quarter by firing in a shot from 10 yards out on the right side after a pass from goal-line extended by Prevost. Senior midfielder Nick Blumer followed two minutes later with his second goal of the season off a drive from outside the restraining line. Off the ensuing face-off, defensive midfielder Conor Regin raced in for his second tally of the campaign at the 2:11 mark.
The Dolphins extended their lead to 10-0 by scoring seven times in the second quarter. Prevost scored the first two in a span of 30 seconds, with his fifth goal of the season coming at the 13:05 and his sixth finding the back of the net at 12:35. Just two minutes later, Blumer finished off a pass from junior attackman Nate Frechette for a 6-0 lead. Following eight and one-half minutes of scoreless action, Prevost scored from the right edge of the crease off a pass by Frechette in transition after junior defenseman Alex Cameron-Carter caused a Southern New Hampshire turnover. Frechette registered his third consecutive assist by finding sophomore Chris Button at the 1:17 mark for his sixth goal of the year. After causing a Southern New Hampshire turnover in its defensive end, senior midfielder Taylor Brooks picked up the loose ball and fired in his fourth goal of the season with 32 seconds left in the half. Out of a Le Moyne timeout with 13 seconds to go, Prevost came around the right side of the goal and fed Brooks at the top of the box, where he ripped a shot into the back of the net with 4.3 seconds remaining to close out the quarter’s scoring.
In the slow-paced second half, the Dolphins scored twice to cap the scoring in the game. Chadderdon gave the Dolphins an 11-goal lead with his team-leading 11th goal of the year at the 4:35 mark of the third quarter off a pass from Prevost, his team-best 12th helper of the season. Sophomore midfielder Matt Klepper scored the fourth quarter’s only goal with 2:10 left off a pass from junior attackman Justin DePalma.
Junior goalkeeper Jeff White registered five saves in the first half to pick up his 29th career victory, which ties him with Tom Kimble for third on the program’s career wins list. Sophomore Connor Smart made seven saves in 20:48 between the pipes, while senior Matt Krupka turned away one shot to complete the shutout. Brendan O’Brien took the loss for the Penmen after giving up 10 goals, while making five saves in the first half.
