Wed, 17 Apr 2013 01:25:00 GMT — Le Moyne menâ??s lacrosse strikes again as they battled for a tough 6-3 victory over visiting Saint Rose on Tuesday afternoon. It was a defensive battle at Ted Grant Field as both squads brought their â??Aâ?? game.
Midfielder Andrew Chadderdon from Auburn and CBA alum Nate Frechette paced the Dolphins with three points apiece. Chadderdon found the back of the net twice, while Frechette dished out two assists.
It was all Le Moyne in the first half as the Dolphins opened up the scoring at the midway point of the first quarter with a goal from Chadderdon.
The second quarter was dominated by Le Moyne as they pumped in three goals. Frechette assisted on two of them, scoring were Kevin Kelly and Matt Klepper from Fayetteville-Manlius. The final goal of the first half came on an unassisted goal by Chadderdon after he caught a pass on the wing and spun by two defenders and took a shot from the middle of the field, giving Le Moyne a 4-0 lead at halftime.
Saint Rose did not go down without a fight. After a scoreless third quarter by both teams, the scoring was turned up a notch in the fourth quarter.
Frechette tallied a goal only eight seconds into the quarter, then one minute later Saint Rose got onto the board with their first goal of the game. The Dolphins were only 1-6 on man up opportunities for the game, but Tyler Prevost scored the lone goal for the man advantage, giving Le Moyne a 6-1 lead.
Saint Rose scored their final goals 30 seconds apart from each other, but the defensive unit for Le Moyne stood strong and did not allow a Golden Knight comeback.
Goalkeeper Jeff White made 10 saves on the day for the Dolphins. White made some acrobatic stops in the net, which proved to be the difference in the three goal game.

The Dolphins have two remaining game, both important Northeast-10 Conference games: Southern New Hampshire and Saint Michaelâ??s, respectively.
