Dean College erased 7-5 halftime deficit with an offensive explosion in the second half on their way to a 17-10 win over Husson University in non-league men's lacrosse action on Tuesday afternoon.
In the process, Bulldog star senior Brody Fredericks (Weare, N.H.) eclipsed a trio of milestones – he joined teammate Anthony Trasacco (Cheshire, Conn.) as the only two players in school history with 100 career goals or more and Fredericks himself becomes the first with 100 career assists and 200 career points.
HOW IT HAPPENED:
The visiting Eagles had a 2-1 lead with less than two minutes left in the opening quarter when Louis Piccolo (Foxboro, Mass.) and Trasacco scored goals in the final 54 seconds of the quarter to take the lead.
That lead was short-lived, however, as a Piccolo man-up strike was surrounded by a trio of Husson scores. Fredericks recorded a man-down tally, but Jaden Wells found the back of the net twice to give the Eagles a 7-5 halftime advantage.
Dean came out of the locker room on fire, scoring five of the first six goals of the third quarter including two from Trasacco, another from Fredericks, the third of the game from Piccolo and one from Tyler Minor (Warwick, R.I.).
Now out in front 10-8, the Bulldogs saw Fredericks scored two more times, but the Eagles stayed close, making the game 12-10 at the end of the frame.
Any thoughts of a comeback were quickly squelched as Trasacco buried three straight to open the fourth and was followed by scores from Piccolo and Joshua Harrison (Townsend, Mass.).
INSIDE THE NUMBERS:
Trasacco recorded six goals and four assists to lead the Bulldogs' offensive attack, while Fredericks milestone afternoon featured five goals and four assists of his own. Piccolo, meanwhile, recorded four goals and Juniel Jordan (Kingston, Mass.) collected seven groundballs.
Dean is off until Tuesday when they host Mitchell College at 3:00 PM.
