CHESTERTOWN, Md. - Wesley College's Eric Crumbock (Levittown, Pa./Truman) turned in a five point afternoon, but Washington picked up a 12-6 win over the Wolverines.

The junior scored three times and assisted on two other goals.

It was an up and down afternoon for the Wolverines (2-4), who were outscored 9-0 in the first and third quarters, while scoring all six goals and allowing just three in the second and fourth periods.

Four different players scored for the Shoremen (2-3) in the first quarter as Washington jumped ahead 4-0.

Crumbock had a hand in all three of Wesley's goals in the second quarter as the Wolverines chipped the lead to 5-3 at the half.  Crumbock scored less than a minute into the period, before Shane Kaski stretched the lead to 5-2 for Washington.  

Crumbock helped the Wolverines finish the half with a surge, scoring with 3:49 to go, then assisted on a man up tally by Joe Trezza (Kings Park, N.Y./Kings Park) 45 seconds later.

Two of Washington's five third period goals came in the final 30 seconds as the Shoremen stretched their lead to 10-3 entering the final period.

Wesley received goals by Justin D'Alonzo (Prospect Park, Pa./Interboro) and Tim Dougherty (Cape May Court House, N.J./St. Augustine Prep), but each were answered by by Washington before Crumbock's third goal of the day cut it to 12-6 with 3:52 left.

Michael McQuarrie (Bel Air, Md./C. Milton Wright) continued his strong play in the face off circle, winning 16-of-21 on the afternoon and picking up 14 ground balls.

Sean Mathews (Baltimore, Pa./Pennsbury) made 10 saves.

Kaski had three goals and an assist for Washington, while Matt Lewis added a pair of scores and helped on another.  Hunter Nowicki and Bennett Cord both had two goal games.

Peter Stewart made 10 saves and had six ground balls for the Shoremen before giving way to Ted DiSalvo.

The Wolverines will look to get back into the win column when Oswego State visits Scott D. Miller Stadium for the start of a four game homestand on March 16.
