April 5, 2011
EMMITSBURG, Md. - Rickey Mirabito (Binghamton, N.Y./Chenango Forks) scored four goals and had an assist and Travis Comeau had three goals and two assists, as the Georgetown University men's lacrosse team (5-4) defeated Mount St. Mary's (4-5) 13-7 at Waldron Family Stadium on Tuesday evening.
After the Mountaineers closed to within one of Georgetown midway through the second quarter, the Hoyas reeled off three consecutive goals, as Mirabito scored inside the seven minute mark and Zack Angel (Park Hall, Md./St. Mary's Ryken) and Comeau each scored in the final 15 seconds of the half to build a four goal lead. GU continued to grow the lead through the second half on the way to their 13th consecutive win over MSM.
The Blue & Gray won the ground ball battle picking up 21 more than The Mount. Dan Hostetler (Ellicott City, Md./River Hill) picked up seven ground balls and caused two turnovers, while Barney Ehrmann (Baltimore, Md./Gilman) picked up four ground balls and caused four turnovers. Tyler Knarr (Eagleville, Pa./LaSalle College HS) went 7-of-12 in the face-off circle in the Georgetown victory.
The Hoyas and Mountaineers played scoreless lacrosse through nearly 11 minutes until Brian Casey (Bethesda, Md./Georgetown Prep) broke the tie on an unassisted goal with 4:02 remaining in the first quarter. Less than two minutes later, Max Seligmann (Essex Fells, N.J./Delbarton) scored to put GU in front 2-0.
Mount St. Mary's Brett Schmidt put his team on the board with 32 seconds remaining in the first quarter to cut the lead in half.
Mirabito opened the second quarter quickly, scoring less than one minute in, as he tip-toed the crease to beat the goalie, extending the lead to 3-1. Eric Ososki brought the mount back within a goal with under 10 minutes remaining in the quarter on a diving shot that found the top left corner of the goal.
The Hoyas responded, going on a 3-0 run to end the first half. Mirabito would score after the Hoyas stopped the Mountaineers clear attempt. Comeau would recover the batted pass and find Mirabito who scored, as the goalie tried to get back in position. Angel scored with 14 seconds left in the half and Comeau would end the half with a goal on an assist from Mirabito with seven seconds left, sending the Hoyas into halftime with a 6-2 lead.
In the third quarter, Ososki opened the scoring within the first minute, but Georgetown answered quickly, as Brett Weiss (Phoenix, Md./Boys' Latin) scored unassisted. On the ensuing face-off Ehrmann picked up the ground ball and quickly got it downfield to Davey Emala, who scored to put the Hoyas in front 8-3.
Comeau and Emala traded goals with MSM's Andrew Scalley and Mark Burns to end the third quarter, as the Hoyas held their five goal advantage 10-5.
The Hoyas and Mountaineers continued to trade goals into the fourth quarter with Mirabito scoring his third goal in between a pair of Mount goals, but Georgetown's defense would not allow the Mountaineers to gain any momentum. Comeau scored his third goal of the game with 3:44 remaining and Mirabito scored his fourth with 1:39 on the clock to clinch the Hoyas 13-7 victory.
Senior goalie Jack Davis (Glen Ridge, N.J./Glen Ridge) earned the win for Georgetown making six saves.
The Hoyas will travel to South Bend, Ind. to take on BIG EAST rival Notre Dame on Sunday at noon. GU leads the all-time series 7-4.
