Is it safe to say the MAAC is bad now? If one of your top teams falls to Lafayette...yikes.

- Lafayette 11, Monmouth 10: So this was unexpected. The Leopards, who lost their last eight games, upset the defending MAAC champions by a goal in New Jersey. The MAAC is really awful, and the Hawks showed how bad it was tonight. Lafayette jumped to a 5-2 lead with 8:18 left in the second quarter. But Bryce Wasserman took over and scored three straight and assisted on a fourth goal to give the Hawks a 6-5 lead in the third. The senior would finish with four goals in the loss. The game would eventually head to an 8-8 in the fourth before the Leopards went on a 3-0 run in the final quarter to get them to their final 11. Monmouth made things interesting, scoring two goals in a span of 22 seconds with under two minutes left. Freshman Bryce Hess scored four goals on six shots, all of them unassisted. Prior to the game, he scored five goals on the season. Conor Walters and Seth Obadia scored hat-tricks of their own.
- Syracuse 11, Hobart 4: The Kraus-Simmons Trophy stays in Syracuse for another season, thanks to an 11-4 win. The Orange led 7-1 at half, but the Statesmen slowly crept back in it with three straight goals after Cuse’s 8-0 run to make it an 8-4 game entering the fourth. Syracuse would end a 16:53 scoreless drought thanks to two Stephen Rehfuss goals and a Jamie Trimboli tally. The Orange did get many of their reserves in, but probably a lot later than they originally thought.

- Stony Brook 8, St. John’s 6: It was a very even game on Long Island, with Stony Brook the only team holding the lead throughout the game, despite efforts from the Red Storm to take an advantage on the scoreboard. It ended with three unanswered goals beginning with 1:09 left in the third quarter for Stony Brook, thanks to Tom Haun. Haun would also score with 11:03 left in the fourth quarter, before Chris Pickel added another with 51 seconds left. Both Haun and Pickel finished with a pair of goals, and Brandon Maciejewski made 10 saves. Mike Madsen led all Red Storm players with three goals, half of the team’s scoring.
⭐️⭐️⭐️: Bryce Wasserman, A, Monmouth - Despite the loss, the senior still was Monmouth’s only player who recorded more than one goal. He had four tallies and also recorded an assist. The 4-0 run the Hawks had was all in part of Wasserman’s skill. He scored the first three goals before assisting Hunter Jones for the assist.
⭐️⭐️: Stephen Rehfuss, A, Syracuse - The sophomore recorded a hat-trick and two assists, and came up big in the fourth quarter when the Orange were in need of a goal. Rehfuss delivered, and is slowly improving his overall game as one of the main contributors on the Cuse offense.
⭐: Bryan Hess, M, Lafayette - Nearly doubling your season goal total in one game is always a great achievement, including for a freshman. His four goals helped catapult the Leopards to a very good win over Monmouth.
