Limestone bests Rollins as Ricci, Nakasuji combine for 10 points

WINTER PARK, Fla. -- Sophomore attack Vinny Ricci drilled a game-high four goals and senior attack Todd Nakasuji finished with six points as No. 5 Limestone (4-0, 0-0 CC) delivered a 17-8 victory against Rollins (2-1, 0-0 SSC) on Sunday.

Ricci tied his career high with his four scores while Nakasuji broke his career high with six points on two goals and a career-best tying four assists to pace the Saints. Senior midfielder Joshua Williams also got on the career-high bandwagon as he drilled a career-best three goals and freshman midfielder Colton Watkinson notched a goal and three assists.

Joining that crew was sophomore midfielder Mike Messenger with a pair of scores and an assist and sophomore midfielder Michael Miranda notched two goals.

Defensively, senior long stick midfielder Anthony Starnino was a rock with six groundballs and career-high six caused turnovers.

Sophomore goal keeper Patrick Sheridan started and played 56:20 as he allowed just five goals and made 14 saves on his way to moving to 4-0 on the year. He also added five groundballs.

Carson Buell was the only member of the Tars to notch more than one goal, getting two, while Jack Vonarb had a goal and two assists. Nicholas Schultz finished with a goal and an assist and Andrew Matthews had a goal and three groundballs. Andrew Sheerin played 51:28 in goal and allowed 13 of the 17 goals while making eight saves to fall to 2-1 on the season.
