Tuesday NCAA Roundup: Marquette Upset

Not much action happened Tuesday compared to prior Tuesdays this season.  But there were games that were played:

Bellarmine 9, #12 Marquette 3

In a day where nothing really happened, this was the biggest outcome of them all.  Bellarmine scored three goals in the 2nd to take a 4-1 lead at halftime before Marquette scored two in the 3rd to close the lead to 4-3.  However, a five-goal barrage in the 4th helped Bellarmine pull out the huge win.  Austin Shanks recorded a hat trick and three assists.  No other player recorded more than one goal or one assist in the game.  The Knights (3-5) travel to Air Force on Saturday, while the Golden Eagles (8-2) host St. John’s in a Big East showdown Saturday.

Hartford 14, Siena 9

The Hawks (5-4) had consistent scoring throughout the game, scoring four goals in each quarter except the 2nd (they scored only two).  Justin Huggins had four goals, while Kevin O’Shea had a hat trick and three assists.  Canadian freshman Chris Robertson also recorded a hat trick for Siena (4-6).  Hartford has a home date with UMBC Saturday, while Siena plays Manhattan next week.

#11 Yale 13, Sacred Heart 3

The Bulldogs (7-2) had a 9-0 lead at half, which should tell you how the game went overall.  Jeff Cimbalista had three goals and an assist, while Conrad Oberbeck had two goals and two assists.  Yale’s got Dartmouth Saturday, while Sacred Heart (4-4) has Hobart, also Saturday.

#20 Stony Brook 17, Quinnipiac 9

Brody Eastwood had six goals and Mike Rooney recorded four goals and three assists for the Sea Wolves (8-2).  Brian Feldman had five goals of his own for Quinnipiac (2-7).  The Sea Wolves have a home battle with Princeton on Saturday, while the Bobcats have Manhattan Saturday.

Manhattan 7, NJIT 5

The Jaspers (1-10) finally got their first win of the season, yet it was against first-year program NJIT (0-9).  Andrew Gresham had two goals and two assists, while Andrew Hurst recorded two goals and an assist for Manhattan, who takes on Quinnipiac on Saturday.  NJIT’s chances for their first win look bleak; they have Lafayette next Thursday before Marist and Dartmouth.

Lafayette 8, Monmouth 7

The Leopards (2-8) held off a late Monmouth (4-5) come back in the 4th.  The Hawks scored four goals in the 4th after scoring just one goal in the first three quarters.  Brian Bock had a hat trick and an assist for Lafayette, while Bryce Wasserman and Chris Daly had hat tricks for Monmouth.  The Leopards host Holy Cross Saturday, while Monmouth has Canisius on Saturday as well.
