Goucher cruised to conference win against Drew

David Waligurski scored Goucher's first goal of the game and things just broke open from there for the Gophers as they cruised to a 10-3 victory.

David Waligurski scored Goucher’s first goal of the game and things just broke open from there for the Gophers as they cruised to a 10-4 victory.

Victory was never in doubt for the Goucher men’s lacrosse team. They jumped on Drew Rangers right away and walked away with an impressive 10-4 Landmark Conference victory.

Drew goalkeeper Teddy Sweeney stopped 16 shots but the constant barrage of shots by the Gophers made that performance be in vain. Goucher out-shot their opponents 44-19 in the game and forced seven failed clears.

It was a balanced attack for the Gophers as eight different players scored. Gavin Wilson led the charger with two goals and assist while Michael Morgan was the only other player with multiple goals.

The goals were not coming right away for Goucher, though. They were ripping shot after shot after shot but it wasn’t until Dave Waligurski used a feed from Will Brennan to net the first goal of the game at the 9:31 mark in the first quarter. And their next goal didn’t come until there were only eight seconds remaining in the opening quarter.

But Goucher broke lose in the second quarter, after sizing the Rangers up through the first 15 minutes. Michael Morgan scored just 17 seconds out of the short stoppage to give his team a three-goal lead.

For Drew, Hutch Fisher got them on the board at the 7:36 mark but just 10 seconds later, Morgan scored again and that sparked a three-goal run before the end of the half. After goals from Jake Ziegler and Leo Semetilli (Howard) the Gophers took a 6-1 lead into the break. Semetilli’s goal was in an extra-man opportunity after Steven Demello was called for a one-minute slashing penalty.

After halftime, Drew netted back-to-back goals but Goucher did not let them get in a rhythm. Wilson scored twice in man-up situations to put the Gophers up 8-3.

Greg Swenson scored once more early in the fourth quarter for Drew but Ruel Ellis and Michael Bulnes scored at the end of the game to solidify the victory.

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.
