This past Saturday the Le Moyne Dolphins defeated Adelphi 13-6 to not only stay undefeated, but clinch another Northeast-10 title.  In the 20 years Le Moyne has participated in the NE-10, they’ve clinched 15 regular season conference titles and a win against Bentley this upcoming Saturday would result in their 14th undefeated conference season in the last 17 years. Head coach Dan Sheehan reached 24th on the NCAA’s all-time victories list with 263 wins.

Senior Logan Thomas led the Dolphins in scoring with five goals and one assist, while Brian Rogers had three goals with a game high two assists.  This marked the sixth consecutive game with a goal for both Thomas (33) and Rogers (29), who have a combined 62 goals between them. Senior goalkeeper Alex Krawec earned NE-10 Goalkeeper of the Week. This marks his 7th consecutive award, and 8th in 9 weeks.  He’s the national leader in goals against average and save percentages and is the only keeper with a goals against average of 6.55 and one of two with a save percentage of .590.

Thomas is tied for fifth in goals in the NE-10, and will be looking to climb those rankings against Bentley this Saturday.  The offense has been firing on all cylinders, and Thomas has been on the top of his game.

“We were able to find open looks when we stayed with the game plan,” said Thomas. “Long possessions were key, and we capitalized on our opportunities.”

Rogers has been nothing short of phenomenal for the Dolphins, and has proven himself game in and game out against tough opponents.

“Finding success in front of the net is what allowed us to be so successful was the fact that we were all working as a team and not individuals,” said Rogers. “We are a very hard team to beat when we are all on the same page and working together.”  

As the Dolphins approach Saturday’s game, Rogers mentioned the importance of consistency.

“We have the same mentality every game no matter who we are playing. Our mentality is to play fast, play hard and play together and when we do those three things, we are very successful.”

As captain, Krawec  knows the importance of momentum.  

“Coach always emphasizes consistency and it starts in practice. Coming everyday and playing against what I believe is the best competition I will face all year every day makes it easy once the games come along,” says Krawec. “It’s a tribute to the scout team and the 45 other guys who help prepare each week.”  

Le Moyne has proven to be the best and continues to operate that way.  Currently undefeated and facing a decent Bentley side, Le Moyne is looking for that elusive 15th win.

The Dolphins face Bentley College away this Saturday at 7 p.m. and look to cap off an impressive campaign with an undefeated regular season.
