Two of the top players from the Hudson Valley/Long Island/Connecticut region, former Manhasset star Connor English (left) and former Ridgefield standout Matt White (below right), both made successful and memorable collegiate debuts today as freshmen at the University of Virginia. Both White and English scored goals as Virginia rallied for an 11-8 win at Drexel, giving Cavaliers coach Dom Starsia his 200th career win.
Steele Stanwick led UVa with three goals and two assists. Former John Jay standout Chris Bocklet had two goals and two assists.
Virginia, which fell behind 4-1 after the first quarter, outscored the Dragons 5-1 in the final period.
The game also marked the collegiate debut of former Iona Prep star Nick Trizano, a freshman attackman at Drexel, and the debut of new Drexel coach Brian Voelker, the former head coach at Penn. Voelker replaces Chris Bates, who left Drexel to take over the Princeton program after former Princeton coach Bill Tierney departed for Denver.
