Mustangs demolish Alvernia, 29-1

Stevenson was nearly perfect in every offensive category as they earned a completely one-sided victory over Alvernia.

Stevenson was nearly perfect in every offensive category as they earned a completely one-sided victory over Alvernia.

The long delay due to severe weather in the area did not halt Stevenson’s offense as they completely demolished Alvernia in their season-opener. No. 7 Stevenson had 19 different played score and 22 players record at least one point in a 29-1 shellacking of the Crusaders.

Kyle Karsian led Stevenson with four goals while Pat Candon scored three times with two assists and Matt Thompson posted a hat trick in the season opener. The Mustangs ripped off 96 shots in the game and held Alvernia to only 13 attempts. They also dominated the Crusaders scooping up ground balls, 39-11 and won 30 of 34 face-offs.

Stevenson was no match for Alvernia and that became clear in the opening moments of the game. Stevenson earned a 9-0 lead after the first quarter of the game and carried a 14-0 lead with 12 minutes left before halftime. Alvernia was finally able to score their first goal of the game with 10:15 remaining before the break when Andrew Ritchie got loose for an unassisted goal. But their first goal would prove to be their last goal.

Alvernia only managed six shots on goal in the entire game, but Stevenson had one of their six-used goalkeepers in the game step in front of all by one of them.

Following Alvernia’s one goal, Stevenson scored five more before taking a 19-1 lead into halftime. Stevenson then scored six goals in the third quarter and four more before the end of the game.

Stevenson went 18-for-19 on clear attempts in the game. They will host much stiffer competition on Saturday when the No. 1 team in the nation, RIT, steps onto the field at Mustang Stadium for a 7 pm contest.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
