Mustangs stumble again in a non-league game

Their second straight game out of conference play did not net the Stevenson men’s lacrosse team the result they would have hoped, especially after stumbling at Cabrini last week. The No. 14 Mustangs got off to a remarkable start, leading the host Stevenson University 5-1 in the first half. But the No. 18 Ducks shut Stevenson out for the final 40 minutes of the game as they rallied back and handed them a 7-5 defeat.

Sean Ohlhaver and JT Thelen each scored twice for the Mustangs but despite beating the Ducks on faceoffs 10-3, and out-shooting them 46-28, Stevenson just never got into an offensive rhythm in the second half. Stevens goalkeeper Carson White made thing very difficult for Stevenson as he finished with 15 saves in the game, including five in both the second and fourth quarters.

After a four-goals run to start the second quarter for the Mustangs ahead 5-1 with 10:47 remaining, the Ducks pitched a shutout the rest of the way. John Boutureira got Stevenson some momentum heading into the break with an unassisted score but a more evened possession game with a hot goalie helped Stevens make the comeback.

Brendan Monteleone and Boutureira both scored unassisted to start the second half before Dean Peluso tied the game on a feed from Tommy Dawson with 3:09 remaining in the third period.

Boutureira recorded his third point of the game and run when he assisted Tim Leahey for the go-ahead score with less than a minute remaining. Connor McKeon scored the fourth quarter’s only goal to give the Ducks an extra insurance goal.

Stevenson will look to build some momentum back heading into the postseason when they wrap up their regular season back in conference play on Saturday when they travel to Messiah College for a 7 pm game. The regular season title and tournament’s No. 1 overall seed will be on the line in the game.

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.
