The fall starts with a 11-4-1 day for Ris. Clams & L'necks.

Yale Tournament in Review

Overall Program Record: 11-4-1

Record: 2-1-1

Comments: The day started well for the RC boys with a convincing 9-0 win over the NH Tomahawks.  Every part of the game was tilted in our favor, but none as much as the defensive play from close defensemen Mike Falzarano, Ryan Caley, and Connor Rayfield as well as LSM's Tyler Martz and Drew Bourdeau.  They helped not only hold the Tomahawks to zero goals, but zero shots on net as well.

The second game of the day matched us up with a Laxachusetts team.  In what could have been considered the best game of the tournament, we played them to a  2-2 stale-mate.  Much credit must be given to their goalie who kept the score at 1-1 for most of the first half as we controlled most of the action in the early going.  Laxachusetts went into the half with a 2-1 lead, but a great feed from middie Foster LeBeouf to a cutting Andrew Gallahue about 10 minutes into the second half knotted things up.  That knot was never untied despite multiple opportunities for both teams.

Our third game of the day was one that everyone on the team would like to forget.  After such a hotly contested game before, we came out drained emotionally and a very good Connecticut Chargers team took it to us, 2-7.  Colin Orr was the lone bright spot in the game winning all but two face-offs in the game.

Going into our last game, the RC's had something to prove.  And they did just that.  It was as close to a perfect game from all positions as I've seen this group play.  While posting a 14-1 win, 10 of the 14 goals were assisted and it all started with beautiful feed from Foster LeBoeuf to a cutting (then diving) Michael HarrisHunter Tyrrell replicated the play with another feed from Foster about 12 minutes later.  The most gratifying thing for me was that every offensive player had at least one point in the contest.

Not a bad way to finish the day.

Overall on the day, I was very happy with the play of this team and I am excited to see them continue to grow and develop.

(Find out how the Rising Clam Blue 2014 did out at UMass on Sunday here.)

Players of Note:

Andrew Gallahue (Attack)-  Andrew lead the team with seven points on the day (6 goals, 1 assist) coming from great offball movement around the crease.

Foster LeBoeuf (Middie)- Foster ended the day with only 4 (2 goals, 2 assists) points, but he was more often than not the catalyst that started plays on the offensive end of the field.

Colin Orr (Middie)- Colin was the engine of the team on Saturday.  He took all but 5 faceoffs all day winning around 65% of them.  Coupled with the 1 goal and 1 assist, Colin racked up  16 ground balls on the day.

Dillon Guthro & Kevin Lally (Goalies)- It's almost impossible to separate these two.  Both goalies ended the day with 9 saves apiece, splitting every game.  Not only did they match each other in total saves, but each game they matched each other save for save,

2010 FALL UMASS RC 2014

 (Pic from UMASS tournament)

Record: 4-0

Game 1 -  RC Orange (11) vs. Three Tribes (3)
Comments: We came out flying, it was a great way to start the day. Three Tribes was never really in this one and the score showed it. For a team playing together for the first time, it never showed. We meshed really well right off the bat.

Game 2 -  RC Orange (7) vs. Laxachusetts (5)
Very good competitive game against an in state rival. We played hard and executed better than they did. We had some great transition goals later in the game to give us the lead. The win was sealed with great goal tending and great riding.

Game 3 -  RC Orange (12) vs. Tropics (5)
We came out very slow and we were down about 1-3 at one point. After a halftime pep talk and a few changes we turned it around and dominated the second half.

Game 4 - RC Orange (11) vs. Revolution (4)
This was a great game to end the day. We really showcased our skills in this game. alot of great assisted goals from Tucker Mscisz and Michael Howe. We completly outplayed this team.

Players of Note:

Jackson Patrican (defense)- Played very confident. He was the undisputed leader of our defense. He did a great job getting the ball off the ground and clearing the ball as well as playing very physical.

Jake Levy (LSM)- Jake ran LSM for us all day and had a great day. He was a very strong presence between the lines and did a great job running the wing on face offs and picking up GBs all day.

Oliver Rordorf (goalie)- did a geat job stopping shots for us all day and was very vocal in cage and clearing the ball.

Tom Casale (goalie)- Tom was very athletic in the cage and clearing. He made some key stops down the stretch.

Andrew Eriksen (Middie)- This kid is a big athletic middie that did a lot of work for us in between the lines and on offense. He ran the length of the field running over multiple players on the opposing team on a few seperate occasions.

Duncan O'Connor (Middie)- Duncan played the best I have seen him play in a few years I have been coaching him. He used his speed and was not hesitant to take the ball to the rack, and he did just that all day.

Joey Cormier (Middie)- Joey dominated at the faceoff X all day for us. He did everything for us between the lines and may have been the key reason we beat Laxachusetts. He also blew up in the final game going at least 85% on faceoffs.

Tucker Mscisz (Attack)- was our undisputed leading scorer. Made some great plays drawing the slide and then make the right feed, alot of unselfish plays that helped us pull away with the Laxachusetts win.

Michael Howe (Attack)- Mike complimented Tucker very well,  running on the same attack line with some great finishes and some tenatious riding.

Alex Paulus (Attack/Middie)- Alex ran our offense for th most part when Mscisz wasn't in. Alex has great vision and made some great looks into the crease and up top.
