Gophers Unleash 66 Shots in Win Over Blazers

Flamholz Catches Anthony as All-Time Assist Leader

March 28, 2007 TOWSON, MD — Goucher unleashed a total of 66 shots today in a convincing 24-2 Capital Athletic Conference victory over Hood.

The 66 shots is a single-game school record, surpassing the 60 shots the Gophers took in a 9-4 triumph over Marymount on March 18, 2006. The 24 goals is the most the team has scored since a 27-7 win over Wooster on March 20, 2001.

The Gophers (3-4, 2-2 CAC) took a 1-0 lead today just :45 into the contest on a goal by Dan Flamholz (Baltimore, MD/Park School), who finished with six goals and one assist. The one assist was the 93rd of his career, which ties him with Phil Anthony (1999-2002) as Goucher's all-time leader.

The Blazers (0-11, 0-6 CAC) tied the score on an unassisted goal by Jason Anderson with 9:47 left to play in the first quarter, but the Gophers went ahead to stay less than a minute later on an unassisted goal by Andrew Nielsen (Wallingford, PA/Strath Haven).

By the end of the first period, Goucher was ahead 7-2 and by halftime, it was 14-2.

Sam Fitzpatrick (Littleton, CO/Arapahoe) supplied the Gophers with three goals and five assists for a career-high total of eight points. Casey Hughes (Granite, MD/Mt. Hebron) contributed three goals and a pair of assists to the victory.

Goucher controlled 24 of the game's 30 face-offs with Daniel Abrams (Dover, DE/Dover) winning 14 of the 20 he attempted and Nick LaBricciosa (Downingtown, PA/Downingtown West) successful on all eight he attempted.

Sam Hoffman went the distance in goal for Hood and made 25 saves.
