Hornets victorious on Senior Day

LYNDON CENTER, Vt. - The Lyndon men's lacrosse team said good bye to four seniors Sunday who played in the final last game of their respective careers. The Hornets honored to senior captain Robert Crupi (Scituate, Mass.), Jeff Russell (South Royalton, Vt.), Brian Sawyer (Goffstown, N.H.) and Christopher Paine (Lewiston, Maine). The seniors went out in grand fashion as they defeated Wheelock College 18-11.

Russell's favorite moment at Lyndon was playing at home and winning. "I wish we could have said goodbye to the seniors last year but I was really happy to have a senior day at home, he said."
 
Paine only played two games this season due to an internship commitment. He said, "I really enjoyed playing for this team the last four years." I just wanted to come out and have a fun time this year. My favorite memory was coming in my freshman year and becoming part of this organization."

"I am happy that we are leaving the lacrosse team in really good hands and how we have built this team up. This year we had the most wins ever in Lyndon history," said Crupi.

My favorite memory was the trip to Mississippi because the team last year became a family. I was really happy to score and have an assist on my last game as a Hornet," said Sawyer.

Justin Mosher (Salem, N.H.) led the Hornet attack with five goals and one assist for a total of six points. Ian Pelkey (Milton, Vt. - 2G, 3A) and Crupi (4G, 1A) both had five points. Kevin McCarthy (Sayville, N.Y.) had four goals on the afternoon and Jason Pelkey' s (Barre, Vt.) assist on Mosher's goal was the first point of his collegiate career.

Donovan Robinson had eight goals for the Wildcats. Josh Simmons had two goals in the contest.

Lyndon's Ryan Leavitt (West BUrke, Vt.) had nine saves on the afternoon while Colin Davis made 15 saves for the Wildcats.

Lyndon finishes the season 4-8 and while Wheelock ends their season at 0-11.
