Bates 12, Wingate 11

The Bobcats (1-0) opened their season in North Carolina by holding off Division II Wingate University (0-1), 12-11. Bates got on the board three times in the first period with two goals coming from 1997's leading goal scorer, sophomore attack Mike D'Addario (Locust Valley, N.Y.). The Bobcats opened up a 5-1 lead midway through the second quarter on a pair of goals from first-year attack Dylan Cruess (Concord, N.H.). The Bulldogs climbed back in the game with two goals, but senior captain Jay Lively's (North Falmouth, Mass.) unassisted goal with 37 seconds left in the period gave Bates a 6-3 halftime lead. Wingate stormed out in the second half, scoring the first four goals of the third period, but sophomore attack Jon Miller (Canton, Mass.) scored one goal and assisted another by D'Addario to tie the game at eight going into the fourth period. The Bobcats stormed out in the last period, picking up three goals in the first five minutes, including Lively and Cruess scoring less than 20 seconds apart to give Bates an 11-8 lead. Wingate scored the next two goals, but senior defenseman and captain Frank Lombardi (Simsbury, Conn.) notched the game-winner with 3:58 remaining. D'Addario and Cruess led the Bobcats with four goals, while Miller had three assists and one goal. Sophomore goalie Jason Beyer (Peekskill, N.Y.) made 15 saves in the win.
