Three different players have led the team in goals in each of its wins. Redshirt senior midfielder Jake Bernhardt scored four goals in the season-opening 23-6 rout of Mount St. Mary's, senior attackman Owen Blye scored five in a 16-4 thumping of Hartford, and senior midfielder John Haus scored four in Saturday's 12-10 decision against reigning national champion Loyola.
Three different players have also led the offense in points in each of those contests. Senior attackman Kevin Cooper recorded six points against the Mountaineers, Cooper and Blye finished with five points each against the Hawks, and Haus posted five points against the Greyhounds.
