Skyhawks Wrangle Rangers

An aggressive Regis University Rangers squad was no match for the Fort Lewis Skyhawks firing on all cylinders Saturday night on the FLC campus.  The 20-7 victory was never really in doubt, as a 4-0 1st quarter was followed by a 9-2 second, to give the Skyhawks a 13-2 halftime advantage.  Kevin Harkey continued his stellar senior campaign with 5 goals and 2 assists, but freshmen starters Brian Lynch (2g, 5a), Bradey Hall (4g, 1a), and Grant Arthurs (2g, 1a) paced the offense all game long.  The defense also showed a renewed focus, as junior Drew Larson (converted from LSM to D-mid) led the way on ground balls, man-to-man defense, and transition (adding 2g,1a in the process).  The Fort Lewis reserves showed the hometown crowd that they are also a talented unit, as they controlled the second half of the game and provided some unexpected surpises as well.  Freshman midfielder Jacob Doyle received the game ball for his total game effort on faceoffs, ground balls, offense, defense, and especially for keeping his cool during a one-sided scuffle in the fourth quarter.  Without a doubt, this was the classiest game that Fort Lewis played all season, their first true four-quarter effort.  A large win is always a nice way to finish a homestand.
