That winning feeling…

For the second straight week, Ryan Doran was the man to whom Saint Joseph’s went to when the Hawks needed a big goal.
The Team 91 2018 product by way of Half Hollow Hills East completed his hat trick in overtime to push the Hawks past Mount St. Mary’s, 14-13. It marked Doran’s third time in four games with at least a hat trick, giving him 14 tallies and five assists in seven games for Saint Joseph’s. He also added five ground balls for the Hawks.
“I saw the ball pop out of the goalkeeper’s stick, and it fumbled around a bit and just found my stick,” Doran told SJUHawks.com. “I just put it away. It’s a great team win, and it feels awesome to be 4-0 in the league.”
’17 Matt Tufano (Glenn) scored once and handed out three assists, including one to set up the game-tying goal with six seconds to play in regulation.
