April 23, 2015 - Eagles Post First Win over Cony 12-3
The Eagles selected the cruise control option on the 2015 version of the Rams and sped away with a 12-3 victory. The Eagles used a balanced attack with 8 different players registered in the scoring column. Kyle Lussier and Kellen Radulski each scored three goals and Eliot Pressman played a solid all-around game picking up 2 goals and two assists.

The Eagles controlled throughout the first period and built up a 5-0 lead. Kyle Lussier established the offensive pattern of the game in the first minute when he whistled a shot just wide from his favorite shooting position; 20 feet out on the left flank. Left unguarded enough from that spot throughout the game, the
Eagles, er Ben Bishop constantly fed him for that shot. With 5:42 left, Kellen Radulski, dropped down, changed the angle of his shot from high to low, and fired past the Cony keeper to make it 2-0. As the period neared it conclusion, the Eagles scored a flurry of gaols. Kyle Lussier made it 3-0 and Eliot Pressman beat his man one-on-one to make it 4-0 with 1:55 left. Hank Gilson, who also played a good all-around game, picked up a goal off an Eli Timberlake feed with 1:17 to make it 5-0. The Eagles threatened again when Kyle Lussier rang the post with 47 seconds left. The Eagles went a man down with 14 seconds left, but they killed off the penalty in the closing seconds of the first period and the opening minutes of the second period.
After Cony scored its first goal, the Eagles returned to the offensive. Kyle Benjamin and Ben Bishop worked their magic and the algorithm worked again: Ben forces from behind, Kyle strolls toward his spot, receives Ben's pass, and quickly unleashes his shot. If Kyle's shot is on net (which it usually is) and it doesn't hit the goalie (which it usually doesn't), not too many goalies are going to make the save (and they usually don't). Kellen Radulski (pronounced by the PA announcer as Radoooolski) added to the score when he changed direction, changed strategy and shot high to high and beat the Cony goalie cleanly to make it 7-1.
Kellen Radulski shoots - and scores
Charlie Gill was well rested, but his alertness showed when he made a great save with three minute left. The Eagles were up 7-1 at the half.
The third quarter was relatively quiet lacrosse wise, probably due to a hail storm,
the size of lacrosse balls well, more like split-pea size. When the climate deniers restored normalcy, the Eagles picked up on offense. The Ben Bishop - Kyle Lussier connection struck again on a man-up situation to make it 8-1 with 3:49 left. On the ensuing face-off, cony controlled and got off a shot in close that Charlie Gill made another spectacular save. Kellen Radulski completed his hat trick with Eliot Pressman assisting
The Eagles opened the fourth quarter just the way you would want: with a kill shot that eliminated any momentum shift. Jake Schoenberg was the executioner with a bullet from the left flank to make it 10-1. Cony's Logan Testerman added a goal to make it 10-2, but Eliot Pressman answered 5 seconds later after he moved in and scored after a face-off violation. Nick Cantor scored the final Eagle goal before Cony's Joe Younes closed out the scoring for the final score of 12-3.
On defense, the action in the train station was limited as the train master Mike Tran was re-directing traffic toward the offensive end. Fellow assistant defenders Jake Steinman, Dustin Wittkopp, and Thomas Emerson all contributed solid support on defense.
