Sophomore attackman Jason Knox scored a record-breaking 10 goals as Hobart College defeated Siena College 26-9 in the Thomas B. Poole ’61 and Family Sports Dome this afternoon. Knox, who broke the program’s Division I goals in a game record with nine last season at Siena, eclipsed his own mark as well as the Northeast Conference record for goals in a game.
Knox scored at least once in each quarter, including a five-goal outburst in the second quarter. It’s the most goals in a game by a Statesman since John Topichak ’71 scored the program’s overall record, 14, in a win at Brockport on May 21, 1969. Knox also added an assist to finish the day with 11 points, the most by a Statesman since Chris Aslanian ’19 had 13 points (6g 7a) against Wagner in 2017.
Hobart’s potent offense saw nine different players score goals and 15 players produce points. The Statesmen posted 41 points as a team, the most since logging 47 (30g 17a) against Arizona in 1990. Senior Eric Holden contributed four goals and a team-high three assists. Junior Tommy Mott also scored four goals and logged an assist. Junior Ryan Archer and first-year John Herlihy each posted three-point games.
