York’s Josh Kluver (Abington) scored with three seconds to play today as 19th-ranked York College edged Ursinus, 10-9, in a thriller.

Ursinus (6-4) led, 8-6, before York scored three straight goals to take a 9-8 lead. But Logan Panaccione scored with 27 seconds left to tie it before Kluver’s heroics.

Chris Varela (Easton) scored twice for York (11-3).

For Ursinus, junior attack Mark Stratton (Manheim Township) scored two goals, while Panaccione, junior defender Cody Lefevre, freshman attack Tucker Noel, junior attack Mike Neal, junior midfielder Jake Weber (Manheim Township), senior midfielder Dylan Spangenberg (Malvern Prep) and sophomore Rob Dewey all had goals in the contest.

Junior attack Steve Smyrl (Garnet Valley) and Spangenberg both had two assists on the day.

Senior midfielder Shawn Caven (Pennsbury) went 10-for-16 on faceoffs, while grabbing seven groundballs.

In goal, sophomore Brian Neff made ten saves.

Ursinus continues a big week, welcoming nationally-ranked Washington College to town on Wednesday, before heading to Gettysburg on Saturday.

Division III

Ohio State 15, Delaware 9

Dan Keane had a big day with a career-high five goals, but the Blue Hens could never catch up after falling behind 8-0 and dropped a decision at Delaware Stadium.

The Blue Hens (6-6), coming off a 10-5 win at Manhattan on Tuesday that broke a three-game losing streak, could not keep the momentum going as Ohio State (4-6) scored five goals in the final 5:32 of the first quarter and eventually led 10-2 at halftime. Delaware outscored Ohio State 7-5 in the second half but it wasn’t enough to complete a comeback.

Keane, a senior from Elora, Ontario, scored five straight goals to pull Delaware to within 14-9 with 1:49 left to play, but the Hens could never get closer as the Buckeyes won their second straight game.

The game was played before a season-high crowd of 1,050 as Delaware celebrated Armed Forces Day and honored the 1984 Blue Hen NCAA Tournament team that gathered this weekend for its 30th anniversary.

Keane recorded his second straight hat trick and seventh of his career for Delaware while Brian Kormondy scored two goals, Jeff Heath (St. Joseph’s Prep) had a goal and an assist, and Beau Jones and Jackson Finigan each dished out two assists.

A bright spot for the Hens came at the faceoff spot where sophomore Tyler Mardian split time with UD starter Taylor Barbarich and won 8 of 12 attempts. In addition, Conor Peaks made nine stops for the Blue Hens.
