SMU Frosh Score 13

Box Score

Feb. 7, 2012

Dallas, TX – The SMU Mustangs (1-0, 1-0 LSA North) traveled to Lubbock, TX on Saturday to face LSA North opponent, Texas Tech, and emerged victorious with a final score of 13-5.

Freshman attackman Matt Murphy (St. Mark’s School – Dallas, TX) opened the game with his first collegiate goal and paced the Mustangs on the afternoon with 6 goals and 2 assists. Fellow freshman attackmen Rob Garvey (Ridgewood High School – Ridgewood, NJ) and Alex Prince (Bolles School – Jacksonville, FL) also had successful debuts with 2 goals and 2 assists of their own.

Contributing to the Mustangs fast start was the face-off play of both John Sabo (Culver Academy – Plymouth, IN) who won 7 of 9 face-offs and Trey Williams (The Westminster Schools – Atlanta, GA) who won 6 of 8. Chad Kehoe (Bolles School – Jacksonville, FL) was ferocious defensively at LSM and collected 6 ground balls in addition to the first goal of his career on a fast break.

Defensively, close defenseman Niko Lundeen (Gulliver Preparatory – Miami, FL) and goalie Cary Nelson (Gilman School – Cockeysville, MD) led the way in limiting the Red Raiders scoring opportunities.

Head Coach Karl Lynch added, “Our trip to Lubbock was successful. We saw just how talented our freshmen are with the ball. I was also really impressed with our team defense. Hopefully with a good week of practice we can eliminate some of the full field recovery sprint work that dominated the second half.”

The Mustangs will travel again next weekend to San Marcos, TX to face the Texas State Bobcats (2-0, 1-0 LSA South).
