MADISON, N.J. – Haverford College's men's lacrosse team broke open a tight game Wednesday night at Fairleigh Dickinson-Florham with a three-goal outburst in the second period then finished off the win, 9-6.
The two teams basically traded goals from the opening face-off until three minutes into the second-period when the Fords broke open a 4-4 tie with three consecutive scores.
Myles Monaghan broke the deadlock at the 11:13 mark with an unassisted marker, then Travis Gregory made it two in a row for Haverford with a score four minutes later off an assist from Zack Cohen. Hjelm tallied his second of the game, both unassisted, not quite four minutes later to stake the visitors to a three-goal lead.
FDU pulled within two late in the second, but Schoen collected his second and third goals of the game with the only two scores in the third period.
Haverford owned advantages in shots, 30-20, and face-offs, 11-of-19. Robert Breckenridge (7-of-12) and John Schipper (4-of-7) split time in the face-off circle for Haverford providing that edge.
Joe Banno earned the win in goal for the Fords making eight saves while Dino Vitale took the loss surrendering nine goals and accumulating 10 saves.
Haverford is back in action Saturday afternoon with a neutral site, non-conference match-up against St. Lawrence University at 4 p.m. in Cortland, N.Y.
