David Murphy '15 Nets Late Winner, Harry Stanton '18 Post Hat Trick as Men's Lax Secures 6th NESCAC Win at Bowdoin, 9-8

David Murphy '15 (#15, main photo) scored his only goal of the game with 4:23 left in the fourth quarter to break an 8-8 deadlock and it proved to be the game-winner as the Cardinals defeated Bowdoin on the road Sat., April 18, 9-8. With the victory, Wesleyan improved to 6-3 in league play and locked up the #4 seed in the upcoming NESCAC tournament. That means a home game for the Cardinals Sat., April 25 against the #5 seed, which could be Bates or Colby, depending upon the winner of the matchup between the Bobcats and Mules on Wed., April 22. Wesleyan also end the regular season Wednesday, traveling to Conn. College, which has already been eliminated from post-season play. The win at Bowdoin was the third straight for the Cardinals over the Polar Bears, all one-goal games. Each of the last seven meetings of the teams has been decided by no more that a two-goal margin with Wesleyan winning four of the seven. Bowdoin still leads the overall series, 39-26. With Harry Stanton '18 (#16, photo insert lower left) leading the attack with his fourth hat trick of the season, Wesleyan overcame a 3-2 deficit after the first quarter with five goals in a row to carry a 7-3 lead into the fourth period.
