Junior attackman Christian Daniel led an offensive explosion with four points and Navy finished with 14 different goal-scorers in routing Furman, 19-3, on a chilly Saturday afternoon in Annapolis. Daniel scored two goals and dished off two assists for the Midshipmen (2-0), who thoroughly dominated every aspect of the game.
“Navy did what they do really well. We’re not this bad but they made us look bad,” said Furman coach Richie Meade, who had not stepped inside Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium since being forced to resign as Navy head coach in 2011 following a 17-year tenure. “Generally, the day is disappointing, to be honest with you. We’re better than this.”
Meade gave full credit to Navy, which dominated possession by capturing 22 of 26 faceoffs and winning 49 of 61 ground balls. It was no surprise, considering those two statistics, the Midshipmen out-shot the Paladins, 49-16.
Junior attackman Tyler Perreten (Severn School) totaled two goals and an assist, while sophomore attackman Nick Cole also had two goals for Navy, which led 11-0 at halftime. Freshman midfielder James Flannery scored his first and second career goals in the contest, which was played in temperatures that never exceeded 30 degrees.
It was Navy’s largest margin of victory since beating Holy Cross, 23-5, on April 18, 2004.
“I was proud of our guys today. All the things we tried to work on during the week, we saw results,” Navy first-year head coach Joe Amplo said. “Our players came out with purpose and did their job.”
