No. 11 Mustangs outclass Lebanon Valley, 14-2

Wade Korvin scored four goals and had one assist against Lebanon Valley.

Lebanon Valley was supposed to be this year’s biggest MAC Commonwealth challenger to the Stevenson men’s lacrosse program, and maybe they actually are the next best team in the league, but if that is the case, the No. 11 Mustangs just showed they are light years ahead of their conference competition as they rolled to a 14-2 victory over the Dutchmen on Tuesday night.

Wade Korvin led Stevenson with four goals while JT Thelen had a team-best six points on three goals and three assists. Stevenson’s offense just overwhelmed the Dutchmen as they outshot them 57-22 beat them on faceoffs 15-4 and maintained long, steady possessions to prevent Lebanon Valley from getting chances to make it a game.

Stevenson shut Lebanon Valley out in the first half as their defense caused 11 of the Dutchmen’s 26 turnovers, shut them out on five man-up attempts, beat them 47-23 on ground balls and only allowed five total shots on goal.

Stevenson scored the first nine goals of the game before Klayton Garman finally got the Dutchmen on the board with 6:09 remaining in the third quarter. Stevenson would then scored another five in a row before the Dutchmen scored one more time in the fourth quarter.

Thelen and Korvin each scored two goals in the first quarter to put the Mustangs up 4-0 after the first 15 minutes. Korvin them completed his natural hat trick with 3:17 left in the second quarter, scoring in between two goals by Karsian that helped give the Mustangs a 7-0 lead at halftime.

Kyle D’Onofrio and Ethan Christensen both scored early in the third quarter to extend Stevenson’s lead.

Garman finally got Lebanon Valley on the board midway through the third quarter, but Christensen scored his second goal of the game before Preston Feacher and Korvin both scored. Korvin’s fourth goal game in a man-up situation with 13 seconds left in the third quarter.

Thelen scored his third goal of the game just 43 seconds into the fourth quarter. Tyler Furhman completed Stevenson’s scoring less than a minute later to put them ahead 14-1. Matt Torrence scored the final goal of the game, Lebanon Valley’s second goal of the game, with 12:03 left I the game.

Stevenson did not allow a shot on goal after that score. Mustang goalie Ross Dinan made three saves in 53-plus minutes. TJ Ellis played the final 6:18 of the game and did not face a shot.

Stevenson moved this game from Wednesday to Tuesday so they could try to play former CAC rival Salisbury on Thursday after it’s original date was canceled due to inclement weather. However, the makeup date was also canceled. Stevenson will return to action on Saturday when they travel to Arcadia for a 1 pm MACC game.

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.
