No. 5 Stevenson beats Elizabethtown to stretch win streak to 14

OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Led by five points from junior Tony Rossi, Stevenson broke open a 4-4 tie at the end of the first quarter by scoring 15 of the game's final 19 goals en route to a 19-8 Commonwealth Conference victory against Elizabethtown on Wednesday night at Mustang Stadium.

The fifth-ranked Mustangs (4-1, 2-0 MAC) extended their home winning streak to 14 and their conference win streak to 10.

The Blue Jays led by one on three different occasions in the first quarter before senior Glen Tompkins scored his team-leading 13th goal of the season with 3:03 remaining to tie the game for the third time.

The goal started a run of six-consecutive goals for Stevenson who took a 9-4 advantage following a goal by freshman Tyler Fuhrman with 4:33 left in the second.

Stevenson outscored Elizabethtown 15-4 over the final three quarters with Rossi accounting for three goals and two assists and a quartet of Mustangs, including juniors Colin Dabney and Dave Phillips and sophomores Joe Balestrieri and Ryan Kirby scoring two goals each.

Phillips and Kirby both netted their first goals of the season while freshman Kyle D'Onofrio and junior JP Coombe also picked up their first tallies of the season, all in the game's final 16:44.

Despite the slow start, Stevenson held a decisive margin statistically, outshooting the Blue Jays 50-22, holding a 49-22 edge in ground balls and winning 22-of-30 face-offs. The Mustangs also scored on 4-of-5 extra-man opportunities.

A total of 38 players saw action for the Mustangs, including junior Kevin Cain who saw his first time of the season in goal, making two saves in relief of sophomore Dimitri Pecunes. Senior Brent Hiken won 15-of-18 face-offs while collecting 14 ground balls while senior Kyle Holechek forced four turnovers.
