NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ- The Pioneers cruised to 12-5 victory over Vernon on Thursday afternoon.

New Providence's Tyler Lawton opened the scoring in the game, but Vernon responded with a goal of their own to tie it. Lawton reinstated the lead with another goal less than a minute after Vernon scored, but yet again the Vikings found the back of the net to equalize the score. New Providence's Joe D'Anna was the next to find twine. He wired a sidearm shot from range to beat the goalie and give the Pioneer's the lead- a lead that they would not surrender again. Lawton would score once more before the end of the first quarter, and D'Anna would strike twice in the second quarter for a 6-2 Pioneer lead at half.

New Providence's scoring pace did not slow in the second half. D'Anna and Sean Sweeney both tallied goals early in the third quarter, but Vernon answered with two goals of their own. The Pioneers still led 8-4 when Thomas McGrath took a pass from Sweeney right in the goalmouth for Pioneers' 9th goal of the game. D'Anna would rip another shot by the goalie for a 10-4 lead late in the third quarter. Lawton and Sweeney would each pot goals in the fourth quarter while the team would surrender a concluding goal for a final score of 12-5.

Patrick Trezza was stalwart in goal for the Pioneers. Trezza recorded 13 saves in the win.

After the game, New Providence head coach Russ Anderson was happy with the game. "It was a good win," Anderson said, "I thought offensively we were clicking, really moving the ball as a team. It wasn't one guy or two guys. It was everybody working in sync finding the open man and finishing which was great to see."

The Pioneers honor their seniors in their next game when they host Johnson on Saturday, April 21st at 11 a.m.

And Over Here is the Dining Hall 2

My very first job in admissions was while I was still an undergraduate myself as a tour guide.  Very early on they indoctrinated us with some tricks of the trade.  It’s a dining hall, not a cafeteria.  A residence hall, not a dorm.  If you have to divulge some negative bit of information, sandwich it between two positives.  There were instructions for glossing over ...
