No. 12 Mustangs pour it on another MACC foe

It’s what we’ve come to expect from the Stevenson men’s lacrosse team now, that they completely steamroll their MAC Commonwealth competition. On Thursday, it was the same story again as the No. 12 Mustangs outclassed the Alvernia Crusaders 26-3 in Reading, Pennsylvania.

Alvernia scored the first goal of the game but the Mustangs quickly took over. Stevenson scored the next 24 goals in the game. The Crusaders were shut out for 51 minutes while the Mustangs pulled away.

Fifteen Stevenson players scored in the game. Wade Korvin led the offensive effort with five goals and one assist while JT Thelen also had six points on three goals and three assists. Kyle Karsian had three goals and one assist.

Stevenson ripped off 84 shots in the game and their 26 goals were more than the Crusaders 20 total attempts. The game of keep away was helped by a dominant 23-for-30 effort at the faceoff X and 59-30 ground ball advantage. Alvernia also turned the ball over 35 times, with 17 of them being caused by Stevenson.

Justin Burnett went 14-for-17 from the faceoff X and led Stevenson with seven ground balls. Dan Hall was 7-for-8 from the X with four ground balls. Four different goalies saw time for Stevenson. Ross Dinan got the win after starting the game and playing the entire first half. He was only faced with three shots and made two saves. TJ Ellis, Tyler Steinberg, and Sam Ross all played in the second half.

Alvernia goalkeeper Kyle Augustine had an eye-opening total of 21 saves, but it was like nothing as the constant peppering of shots saw 21 goals go by him.

Stevenson is 38-0 all-time in MAC Commonwealth regular season play. They will return home for their next game on Tuesday when they host Albright at 7 pm.

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.
