Lacrosse Falls to Saint Leo in DSC Title Game
SALISBURY, NC -- Tournament Most Valuable Player Kyle Marceau (Concord, NH) tallied four goals to help lead Saint Leo to the 2010 Deep South Conference Lacrosse Tournament Championship with a 9-4 victory over host Catawba on Sunday afternoon at Shuford Stadium. The Lions win their second straight tourney title and improve to 12-3 on the year. The Catawba Indians fall to 7-7.
The teams battled through nearly nine scoreless minutes before Saint Leo broke the ice on a goal by Joe Guerin (Palm Beach Gardens, FL). Marceau notched his first goal at the 2:21 mark of the opening quarter for a 2-0 edge. Wayne Carbiener (Orlando, FL/Olympia HS) got Catawba on the board, closing the gap to 2-1 with 1:24 left in the frame, but Ray Ferrara (Potomac, MD) restored a two-goal cushion with 28 seconds remaining in the quarter.
Saint Leo out-shot Catawba 14-4 in the opening quarter, but neither team scored again until the closing minutes of the half. Marceau scored twice in the final 2:38 to push the Lion lead to 5-1 at the break. His last goal of the quarter came with just 24 seconds remaining.
Marceau made it three goals in a row on a tally just over three minutes into the second half and Guerin upped the lead to 7-1 just a minute and half later. That margin proved to be enough. Catawba held a commanding 16-4 edge in shots during the third quarter, but Saint Leo goalie David Erdman (Mt. Sinai, NY) picked up eight of his 13 saves to limit the Indians to just a single goal in the period.
Marceau added an assist to go with his four goals for Saint Leo. Guerin had a pair of goals, while Nick Bova (Eureka, MO) had a goal and two helpers. Braden Artem (Acton, Ontario, CANADA/Christ the King) led Catawba with two goals. Josh Liptak (Cary, NC/Athens Drive HS) recorded nine saves for the Indians.
Catawba finished with a 34-31 edge in shots, including a 24-10 margin in the second half. Saint Leo led the ground ball battle with a 42-27 advantage and also controlled the face-offs, winning 11 of 17, all by Mike Del Buono (Southington, CT).
