3/12: 7 saves, 58.3% SP vs. Binghamton, W 12-5
3/17: 12 saves, 63.2% SP vs. Michigan, W 10-8
Comments: If you watched the game on ESPNU on Saturday, you heard Quint Kessenich talk about how good Conor looked in the game; calm and composed. If Quint says it, it must be true.

3/13: 4 saves, 4 goals against, 50% save pct. vs. Wheaton, W 9-4
3/16: 14 saves, 2 goals against, 87.5% save pct. vs. Babson, W 7-2

3. HAKEEM LECKY (Syracuse / Sophomore / Midfield)
3/16: 2 goals vs. Johns Hopkins, W 13-8
Comments: Tallying your first two goals (and points) of the season on national television against Johns Hopkins isn't a bad way to find your groove.
4. JORDAN GREENFIELD (Fairfield / Junior / Attack)

3/12: 5 goals vs. New England College, W 19-11
3/16: 1 goal vs. Hamilton, L 5-10

6. MATT THISTLE (High Point / Sophomore / Attack)
2 goal, 2 assists vs. UMBC, L 11-16
Comments: Matt continues to produce balanced performances game-in/game-out leading Matt to be number on the team in total points (25) and assists (13) while number two in goals (12).

3/16: W 18-14
Comments: After Coach Daly handed out some disciplinary acts for the first two games of the season for the Jumbos, the starters came back with a vengeance, typified by the play of senior defensive leaders Matt and Sam.
T10. CHRISTIAN DALLMUS (McDaniel / Junior / Goalie)
3/13: 15 saves, 5 goals against, 75% save pct. vs. #8 Lynchburg, L 4-5

T10. MAKAR "MICKY" ZAVERUCHA (Trinity / Junior / Goalie)
3/12: 20 saves, 58.8% save percentage vs. Western New England, L 11-14
Comments: Hitting double digits in saves is impressive enough as a goals. When you get 15 or more, you've had an outstanding game. And when you tally 20 or more saves, you just hope you team gets the win. Unfortunately, the Bantams were unable to take advantage of Micky's stellar performance, which was his first start for the program.
