PSU Men’s Lacrosse drops opener to Plattsburgh State

March 5th, 2005 by Adam

            TROY, N.Y. – Plattsburgh State University defeated Plymouth State University Saturday afternoon, 15-11, in the men’s lacrosse season opener for both schools.  The game was played on the turf at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute due to snow on Plattsburgh State’s field.

            It was a two- or three-goal game most of the way, with the Cardinals pulling away in the fourth quarter.  Plattsburgh State had balanced scoring, as seniors Jordan Thompson (Hogansburg, N.Y.) and Kenny Pierson (Brewster, N.Y.) and juniors Zach Boyce (Rochester, N.Y.) and Adam Lockley (Manlius, N.Y.) scored three goals apiece.  Junior Bill Schmitt (Garrison, N.Y.) also chipped in with two goals for the Cardinals.

            Plymouth State was led by freshman Adam Krinsky (Concord, N.H.), who scored two goals and one assist, while senior Steve Skinner (Hingham, Mass.) and junior John Padua (Hamden, Conn.) also contributed a pair of goals each.  Junior Bobby Dabrieo (Woburn, Mass.) finished with a goal and an assist, and senior Pat O’Malley (South Windsor, Conn.), junior Jon Gagnon (New Bedford, Mass.) and freshmen Tony Aguiar (Northboro, Mass.) and John Cogswell (Jefferson, Mass.) collected one score each.

            Sophomore Steve Valeri (Chelmsford, Mass.) made 10 saves in the Panther goal but was saddled with the loss.

            The Panthers, 0-1, have another road game scheduled this Thursday (Mar. 10) at Bates (4:00 p.m.)  Plattsburgh State, 1-0, heads to Florida for spring break beginning next weekend.
