Penn State's Ogelsby Scores Goal To Help South Win 62nd Annual STX/USILA North/South All-Star Classic, 20-15
FAIRFIELD, CT - Penn State's Luke Ogelsby scored a goal to help the South team capture a 20-15 victory over the North in the 62nd Annual STX/USILA North-South All-Statr Classic here Saturday.
Nittany Lion senior defenseman Matt Zappia (Canandaigua, N.Y.) also was selected to play in the prestigious lacrosse all-star contest.
Bob Benson (Baltimore, MD) of Johns Hopkins University scored four times, while Mike Mollot (Holbrook) of The University of Maryland had two goals and two assists to lead the South All-Stars to victory at Sacred Heart University.
Just under 1,500 fans braved a driving rainstorm and watched the South explode in the first half and build a 13-3 advantages by the intermission. Benson got things rolling for the South with a goal four minutes into game with an assist from Mollot. Jeff Duca (Fairlawn, NJ) of Rutgers University tied the game :15 later, but Benson answered just over a minute later for the South to give them the 2-1 advantage midway through the first quarter.
The South reeled off the next four goals to take a 6-1 lead, two of the scores were back-to-back by Chris Summers (Annapolis, MD) of Loyola University. Devan Spilker (Glen Burnie, MD) of Limestone College and senior Luke Ogelsby (Bryn Mawr, PA) of Penn State also scored during that span. Duca scored again for the North with 1:05 left in the first, but Summers quickly answered with his third goal of the game with just :42 left to make it 7-2 South.
The second quarter was more of the same for the South. Mollot scored both of his goals in the quarter, one of them an incredible shot backward between his legs. Kevin Brennan (Farmingdale, NY) of Duke University also scored twice in the quarter for the South. Spilker also collected his second goal of the game in the quarter. The lone North tally was by Jim Femminella (Plainview, NY) of Hofstra 1:30 into the quarter.
What looked like a sure runaway for the South took on a completely different look in the third quarter. Kevin Leveille (Delmar, NY) of the University of Massachusetts scored :54 into the second half. That goal was quickly answered for the South by Benson with his third of the game, on a feed from Mollot.
The North scored the next eight goals of the game, and the curtain rose on the Tim Miyashita Show. Miyashita (Buffalo, NY) of Canisius College had a pair of goals and three assists in the last 5:29 of the third quarter. Pat Myers (Columbus, OH) of Ohio State started the North run with a goal with 9:19 left in the third. Miyashita then scored with 5:29 left and again with 5:13 to go. He assisted on a goal by Mike Springer (Ridgewood, NJ) of Syracuse with 4:24 to left.
Leveille scored his second of the game, unassisted, with 2:54 to go in the quarter. Miyashita fed a pass to Myers with 2:26 to play for his second goal. Springer scored with 1:33 left in the third and Mike Scaglione (Huntington, NY) of Yale University scored on a pass from Miyashita with just :17 to go to close the gap to 14-12 at the end of three.
The end of the third signaled the end of the North uprising, however. The South regained control of the game in the fourth, scoring the first five goals to open it back up to 19-12 and close out the North hopes.
AJ Shannon (Whitby, Ontario) of the national champion Virginia Cavaliers and Austin Garrison (New Canaan, CT) of North Carolina scored unassisted goals in the first three minutes of the quarter. Trevor Walker (Gladwyne, PA) of Georgetown and Benson followed with unassisted tallies of their own, and Adam Doneger (Hewlett, NY) of Johns Hopkins scored on an assist from Chris Rotelli (Rumford, RI) of Virginia to finish out the 5-0 run.
Scaglione and Miyashita scored twice for the North within a minute to cut the gap to 20-14 with 6:51 to play, but Garrison rang the twine unassisted with 6:06 to go to close out the scoring and send the South home victorious.
The South goalies faced a 70-shot barrage by the North squad and made 27 saves. Jeff Nunziato (Denver, CO) of the University of Denver made 14 saves in the first half, while Justin Sussman (Baltimore, MD) of Bucknell made 13 in the second.
