May 9th, 2001 by Adam

BRUNSWICK, Maine – The Bowdoin College men’s lacrosse team used 18 goals by 14 different players to register an 18-3 victory over Plymouth State (N.H.) College on Wednesday afternoon in the quarterfinals of the ECAC tournament.

With the victory, top-seeded Bowdoin (11-5) advances to the semifinals where it will host the winner of Babson-MIT game at 4:00pm on Friday (5/11). The Panthers complete their season at 7-8.

The Polar Bears took a commanding, 6-0, lead after the first period of play and never looked back. Senior Wendell Simonson (Brookline, Mass.) scored two of his team-high three goals in the first frame to pace the Bowdoin attack. The lead ballooned to 9-0 before senior Jim Martocchio (Simsbury, Conn.) got Plymouth State in the scoring column, scoring a goal with 17 ticks left in the first half, and the lead would be 9-1 at the break.

Martocchio opened the second half with an extra-man goal at the 10:04 mark to trim the lead to 9-2. The Polar Bears would go on a seven-goal scoring binge over the next 20:48 of the game to take a commanding 16-2 lead with 4:16 left in the game that led to the 18-3 final.

Senior Kit Hughes (Lexington, Mass.) and sophomore Bart McMann (Marshfield, Mass.) each had two goals and an assist for Bowdoin while Jake Claghorn (New York, N.Y.), Austin Branson (Bethesda, Md.) and Teddy Scholhamer (Madison, Conn.) all netted their first collegiate goals. Martocchio ends his stellar career with 252 goals for Plymouth State after netting two while senior J.P. Sallese (Beverly, Mass.) added a goal and an assist.

Juniors P.J. Prest (Potomac, Md.) and Marshall McLean (Madison, N.J.) along with first-year Grant White (Charlottesville, Va.) combined to make nine saves for Bowdoin while Jon Clark (Yarmouth, Maine) made 17 stops for the Panthers.
