THE LEAD:
Anthony Trasacco (Cheshire, Conn.) scored five goals and teammate Zach D'Angelo (Chelmsford, Mass.) add four more as Dean College raced past Thomas College, 16-1, in non-league men's lacrosse action on Friday afternoon.

HOW IT HAPPENED:
Trasacco wasted little time getting the Bulldog offense off and running by scoring his first of the afternoon a little more than one minute into the contest.

Less than a minute later Trasacco setup Juniel Jordan (Kingston, Mass.) for his third tally of the season and Dean was quickly in front, 2-0.

Louis Piccolo (Foxboro, Mass.) pushed the Bulldog advantage to 3-0 and when Brody Fredericks (Weare, N.H.) got in on the act, scoring back-to-back goals, Dean was in total control.

Trasacco then recorded three straight scores as the Bulldogs ended the quarter in front 8-0.

Westley Reel (Lakeville, Conn.), D'Angelo and Trasacco all recorded goals in the second quarter and Dean went into halftime ahead, 11-0.

Piccolo and D'Angelo provided the only scoring in the third period and then Christian Billingsley (Saugus, Mass.) and D'Angelo found the back of the net in the fourth before Daniel MacWhinnie scored the first Thomas goal of the season with a little less than six minutes to go in the game.

INSIDE THE NUMBERS:
Dean held a commanding 56-10 edge in shots on the game and had a 41-17 advantage in groundballs.

Joe White (South Easton, Mass.) starred on the defensive end for the Bulldogs, collecting five groundballs and forcing four turnovers.

Fredericks finished with two goals and an assist, while Piccolo provided two tallies and one assist.

Dean returns to action on Monday when they play host to UMass-Dartmouth at 3:30 PM.
