Marlins Depart Gopher Stadium with 13-10 Win

Five-Goal, Two-Assist Performance for Flamholz

April 14, 2007 

TOWSON, MD — Goucher had lost only one time in their last seven non-conference games played in Gopher Stadium before Virginia Wesleyan came to town today and departed with a 13-10 victory over the Gophers.

The Gophers (5-7) finished with a 50-46 edge in shots, but the only time they led in the contest was when Bryant Boucher (North Wales, PA/North Penn) tallied an unassisted goal with 4:56 remaining in the first quarter to snap a 1-1 tie. Before the period ended, however, the Marlins (7-4) pulled even on an unassisted goal by Jordan Kenney.

Kenney struck for three goals in the second quarter, including a pair just :39 apart on an extra-man opportunity. At the half, Virginia Wesleyan enjoyed a 7-4 lead.

Goucher fell behind by as many as five goals in the third quarter, but closed to within 11-8 on a goal by Sam Fitzpatrick (Littleton, CO/Arapahoe) in the final minute of the period. They further reduced their deficit to 12-10 when Dan Flamholz (Baltimore, MD/Park School) tallied his fifth goal of the contest with 8:54 left to play, boosting his team-leading total for the season to 22.

In addition to his five goals, Flamholz was also awarded a pair of assists. Ross Nochumowitz (Baltimore, MD/Park School) picked up assists on three of Flamholz's goals and a fourth on a goal by Dave Duff (Westwood, MA/Suffield Academy).
