Upstart Bears Hound Loyola In Providence
March 27, 2004
Providence, R.I. - Chazz Woodson scored four goals and goalie Mike Levin made 13 saves as the upstart Bears of Brown University surprised No. 11 Loyola at Stevenson Field on Saturday afternoon. The Greyhounds won 12-of-21 face-offs and picked up 42 groundballs, but Brown dominated the scoreboard in a 14-3 win over the 'Hounds.
Loyola freshman Jordan Rabidou tied the game in the early minutes with unassisted goal at 11:52 of the first period. Brown responded with Levin clearing his own save, running the length of the field and dishing off to Woodson, who scored his second goal to give the Bears a 2-1 lead. Brown proceeded to go on a 7-0 run and led 8-1 at the half.
The Greyhounds came out in the second half and with added intensity, cut into the Brown lead with Pat Shek's goal at 12:17 of the third quarter. The Bears scored back-to-back goals before Shek scored his second goal off an assist from junior Matt Monfett.
The Bears closed out the game with two fourth quarter goals and improve their overall record to 5-0. Senior Stephen Brundage, Loyola's leading scorer this season, was shut-out on the offensive end despite taking a team-high four shots-on-goal. Freshman Andrew Spack led the team with eight groundballs but the 'Hounds could not cash in on the extra-man offense, closing the game 0-for-4 in the category.
Loyola, now 2-3 overall, returns home next Saturday and hosts Quinnipiac at Geppi-Aikens Field. That game can be heard live on WNST AM 1570 and Online at www.LoyolaGreyhounds.com. Face-off is slated for 1 p.m.
