Graduate student Adam Shea broke the Hobart career record for faceoff wins and sophomore goalie Elhanan Wilson matched his career-high with 18 saves, but 18th-ranked Saint Joseph’s used a fast start to score a 12-7 Atlantic 10 win over the Statesmen.

Already the program leader in career ground balls, Shea came into the game four faceoff wins behind Matthew Pedicine ’19, who had 618 wins at the X. Shea eclipsed the record in the third quarter and finished the game 8-of-19 at the X with a team-high five ground balls. His records now stand at 622 faceoff wins and 391 ground balls.

Wilson produced one of, if not the best performance of his collegiate career. He made seven saves in each of the first two quarters allowing the Statesmen to remain in contention. Wilson made several highlight reel stops of shots right on the doorstep.

Senior Anthony Dattellas led the offense with two goals and an assist, extending his point streak to 22 games.

The Hawks were led by Matt Bohmer’s six points on four goals and two assists. Levi Anderson added two goals and two assists and Griffin Mallory notched a hat trick. Defenseman Levi Verch collected a game-high eight ground balls and caused two turnovers.


  • Bohmer set up SJU’s first goal just over two minutes into the game and scored his first just a few minutes later to stake the visitors to a 2-0 lead.
  • The Hawks scored twice in a span of 21 seconds late in the opening quarter to make it a 4-0 game.
  • Carter Page made it 5-0 midway through the second quarter, but Statesmen scored three of the next four goals to trim their deficit to three.
  • Dattellas started the run with his 21st of the season.
  • Mallory made it 6-1, but junior Will Delano and graduate student Troy Barthelme netted back-to-back goal to make it 6-3 with just over two minutes left in the half.
  • Saint Joseph’s squashed that momentum going into the half by scoring two goals in the final 70 seconds.
  • Hobart pulled within four twice in the second half, but got no closer.
  • First-year Chris Patterson’s 21st goal of the season midway through the third quarter made it a 9-5 game.
  • His 22nd of the year just over a minute later made it 10-6. Patterson and Dattellas are tied for the team scoring lead.
  • In the fourth quarter, Anderson scored an extra-man goal and Mallory completed his hat trick to stretch SJU’s lead to 12-6.
  • Senior Chad Bach sniped the top right corner of the cage to complete the day’s scoring with just over four minutes left.


  • Saint Joseph’s won its eighth straight to improve to 8-3 overall. The Hawks are 3-0 in A10 play.
  • Hobart dropped to 3-8 overall, 0-3 in the conference.


  • The Statesmen will play their final home game and honor their senior class next Saturday, April 20. Hobart will face off against High Point (7-5, 1-1). The Panthers square off against Richmond tonight at 7 p.m. before making their first trip to Boswell Field.
