Lynn cruises past Quincy into championship

2014 Semifinal Recap

LOUISVILLE -- Chris Hellmann and the Fighting Knights of Lynn advanced to the final of the Division II championship after a 4-1 win against Quincy. Hellmann was unstoppable with two goals and two assists. His first goal of the game came 17 minutes in when he booted it from 20 yards out just above the reach of Hawks goalie Drew Duncan. With minutes to go in the first half, Hellmann tapped the ball to Lukas Zlatartis, who split two Quincy defenders and knocked it passed Duncan, making the score 2-0.

Hellman’s command of the game continued in the second half when he took advantage of an empty net after Duncan came out of the goal for a save. The goal, which was Hellmann’s 26th of the season, stretched Lynn’s lead by three, but Quincy would not go down without a fight. Freshman Artan Emini put them on the Hawks board with just under 20 minutes to go in the game. Senior Jordan Roberts had an opportunity to tighten the score minutes later with a penalty kick but came up short.

Hellmann would pester the Hawks once more with an assist to Nicolas Mortensen who blasted it into the net, making the score 4-1. The Fighting Knights held off the Hawks for the remainder of the game. They’ll seek their second title in three years in the Saturday matchup against the Golden Eagles of Charleston (W.Va.).
