Mass. College Lax: Brown Nets 100th Goal, No. 20 Bentley Soars Past Assumption

By NoontimeSports.com 

Bentley University’s Jackie Brown and Kathleen Gillespie combined for nine goals, which helped the 20th ranked Falcons soar past Assumption College on Tuesday afternoon.

Brown – a senior at Bentley – recorded her 100th goal in a Blue and Gold uniform during the first half when the Falcons were on a 4-0 run that provided the hosts with an 8-5 lead at the break.

Courtesy of the Bentley Sports Information Office, here is this afternoon’s release:

WALTHAM, Mass. – Senior Jackie Brown (Brookfield, Conn./Brookfield) and freshman Kathleen Gillespie (Topsfield, Mass./Masconomet) combined for nine goals as the 20th ranked Bentley women’s lacrosse team defeated Assumption 19-10 on Tuesday afternoon. Brown netted her 100th career goal in the first half.

Bentley led from start to finish. They jumped out to a 4-0 lead after eight minutes, and led by as much as six goals, 8-2, in the first half. The team’s biggest lead of 10 goals, at 19-9, came after Brown netted her fifth goal of the afternoon with 2:16 left in the game.

Brown needed four goals to reach 100 for her career, and she accomplished it in the first half. She scored the opening goal 2:59 into the contest. After Assumption’s Camille Auger scored two straight to cut into Bentley’s 4-0 lead, Brown scored three of the next four goals as part of a 4-0 Bentley run. Her goal with 6:35 left in the half to give them an 8-2 lead was number 100.

Assumption scored the final three goals of the half to make it an 8-5 game at halftime, and they scored three of the first four goals of the second half to get to within 10-8 with 19:40 remaining.

But the Falcons took over from that point, going on runs of 4-0 and 9-1 to pull away. Gillespie and sophomore Hannah Lindgren (Southborough, Mass./Algonquin) each had two goals during the extended run, but five others also scored.

In addition to her four goals, Gillespie came down with 10 draw controls.

With the win, Bentley improves to 5-4 overall and 4-3 in NE-10 play. Assumption drops to 7-3 and 3-3.

The Falcons are back in action on Saturday when they host Southern Connecticut.

Mass. College Lax: Bentley To Host So. N. H. In NE-10 First Round

By NoontimeSports.com 

The Bentley University men’s lacrosse team will host Southern New Hampshire tomorrow evening in the first round of the Northeast-10 Conference Tournament. And courtesy of the Bentley sports information department, here’s this evening’s release, a preview of the game:

WALTHAM, Mass. – The 2014 Northeast-10 Men’s Lacrosse Championship gets underway on Tuesday night, and the fourth-seeded Bentley Falcons will host fifth-seeded Southern New Hampshire at 7:00 pm.

The Falcons enter the postseason with records of 7-6 overall and 7-4 in the Northeast-10, and the Penmen sport marks of 7-7 and 6-5. Bentley is making its 12 appearance in the Northeast-10 playoffs in the last 14 seasons, and 16th time under head coach Jim Murphy.

The only previous postseason meeting between the two programs came in 2009, with Bentley winning a first round matchup 13-5. The Penmen won the regular season meeting this year, 8-7 on April 16. In that one, Southern attacker Cameron Joyce broke a 7-7 tie with 5:03 remaining for the winning goal.

Bentley enters the postseason with one of the stingiest defenses in Division II. They allow just 7.33 goals per game, which is seventh overall and second in the NE-10. A big part of that has been the work of goalie Josh Baker (Randolph, N.J./Randolph), whose .594 save percentage is fourth in the NE-10 and 7.98 goals against average is fifth. Also instrumental has been the play of, among others, Billy Sweeney (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City)Connor Raffety (Mercer Island, Wash./Mercer Island) and T.A. Demoulas (Lowell, Mass./Middlesex School).

Offensively, attackers Cutler Dimond (Marblehead, Mass./Tabor Academy) and Matt Brigham (Portsmouth, R.I./Portsmouth Abbey) lead the team in goals with 21 and 17, respectively. Freshmen David Phelps (Bedford, N.H./Bedford) and John Wheeler (Scarborough, Maine/Scarborough) added to the attack with 15 and 10 goals each. Wheeler also boasts a team-high 10 assists.

Southern counters with two of the NE-10’s leading goal scorers in junior Jeremy Buckley and Joyce. Buckley ranks eighth in the conference with 33 goals, and Joyce is 12th with 27. Senior Rob Murray is the team’s top distributor with 18 assists.

In goal, senior Morgan Weireter has started all 14 games and sports a .583 save percentage with an 11.02 GAA.

The other first round game on Tuesday pits third-seeded Merrimack against sixth-seeded Saint Anselm. The top two seeds, Adelphi and Le Moyne, received byes to Friday’s semifinals. The Bentley/SNHU winner will head to Long Island to play Adelphi, and the Merrimack/Saint Anselm winner heads to Syracuse to take on Le Moyne. The championship game is Sunday afternoon.

Courtesy of the Bentley University sports information department, here’s this evening’s release about Josh Baker, who was named the Northeast-10’s Goalie of the Week:

WALTHAM, Mass. – Senior goalie Josh Baker (Randolph, N.J./Randolph) of the Bentley men’s lacrosse team has been named the Northeast-10’s Goalie of the Week, the conference announced Monday. It’s the second time this season he’s earned the award.

Baker excelled in between the pipes in two games last week as the Falcons split. He made a career-high 16 saves against So. New Hampshire on Wednesday night, a game in which Bentley was beaten 8-7. He then made 13 saves as the Falcons bounced back by beating Franklin Pierce 6-3 on Saturday night. Baker made 29 combined saves against 40 shots faced for a 5.50 goals against average and .725 save percentage.

Baker has started all 12 games for Bentley so far and has helped them to a 7-3 Northeast-10 record, and they have clinched a home playoff game in the first round of the Northeast-10 Men’s Lacrosse Championship. Baker’s season goals against average of 7.35 is third in the conference, and his save percentage of .604 is second. He’s also fifth in fewest goals allowed, despite playing more minutes than the four goalies ahead of him.
