SECOND HALF SURGE LEADS BATES PAST SPRINGFIELD, 3-0
All three Bates College captains scored goals as the Bobcats (5-3) downed Springfield College (2-9) on Homecoming Weekend, 3-0.
After a scoreless first half, senior tri-captain Chad LaFauci (No. Andover, Mass.) knocked home a header in the 62nd minute off a corner kick by classmate Eric Trickett (Windham, N.H.). The two hooked up again in the 84th minute, as LaFauci found a streaking Trickett in the middle of the field. Trickett beat a pair of defenders to gain a breakaway, putting the Bobcats up 2-0. Bates iced the game four minutes later when junior tri-captain Andy Apstein (Waban, Mass.) scored his team-leading sixth goal of the season on an assist from junior Ted Martin (Excelsior, Minn.).
Senior goalkeeper Brian Anton (Boca Raton, Fla.) made four saves en route to his second shutout of the season.
