A check pr(3sentatJon at the Williams Visual Arts Building

improvements to the Third Street area.

A nine million dollcir grant from
x V t l i e Commonweadth of Pennsylvania has made po ssible the expansive plans for the development
of Third Street and the Bushkill
Creek area. At a cei•emony held
August 20"' at the Wi liams Visual
Arts Building, Goveriior Ed Rendell presented a check to Lafayette
College and the city o f Easton.
In October 2003, .a letter from
the Governor's Office? was sent to
the mayors of 53 thir d-class cities
in Pennsylvania, in(:luding Michael McFadden, fornner mayor of
"^^ these austere times, my

afayette, situated atop College Hill, was thought to be a
fortress against the weatherings of
time. Due to the College's recent
acquisition of Third Street properties located at the campus's base,
however, it is now subject to several
environmental factors that do not
affect the hilltop campus.
According to Frederick Quivey,
Vice President for Business Affairs
and Treasurer, the T h i r d Street
buildings reside in a 100-year flood
plane zone. T h e federal government classifies any land near water
to be a flood plane. Each zone is
given a time frame in which the
water basin is expected to flood.
Therefore, the government places
restrictions on the types of buildings that can be erected on those
Quivey explained that the Third
Street property is in a 100-year
time zone and that the Bushkill
C r e e k , which r u n s u n d e r the
structures, is expected to flood
soon based on geological surveys.
Since flooding is a possibility, "you
have to have everything built one
foot above the flood plane mark,"
said Quivey.
Another issue Quivey addressed
was that the Third Street properties are also situated in a floodway
zone. To accommodate high waters, the structures must be built on
stilts, so that the flood waters are
not restricted. If the floodwaters
were blocked, their pressure would
eventually erode structural walls
and cause instability.
In the long run, the College
plans to rehabilitate the buildings that it does own, namely by
bringing those properties up to
code. College President Arthur
Rothkopf speculated that it will
cost "upwards of half a million
dollars" to bring Club Mohican
up to code alone.
Once the buildings are brought
up to code, the College will decide what their function will be.

McCartney's canceUed classesfrustratestudents
t is hard enough for students
to drag themselves away from
summer vacation to come back to
school, but for 46 Lafayette students, this task was met with even
greater challenge by die realization
that their government and law
classes were*cancelled.
J o h n McCartney, professor of
Government and Law and department head, took a medical leave
that resulted in the last-minute
cancellation of two of his classes.
The students were then left with the
responsibility of finding alternate
classes^in an already full government department.
Both classes were dropped during the first week of school. Politics
of Western Europe was cancelled
Wednesday, S e p t e m b e r 1, and
Politics of Africa was dropped
Thursday, September 2.
McCartney was originally scheduled to be able to return back to
school after his surgery. However,
as the semester continued, the certainty of his return date became
less clear.
Although Registrar Frank
Benginia said that "the students
were notified as soon as wc found
out," most aflbcted students felt lost
at the start of classes this fall.
"We weren't told anything during the process," said Mitchell Feld
'05. "It seemed as if professors, administrators, and students all knew
different things. We were frustrated
that we didn't know what was happening for the rest of the semester
or even the rest of the week.'"

time you needed friendly advice or

places like this are easy to find, but
one exists just mere steps from the
Farinon Student Center in Hogg
Hall. This is the office of Reverend
J o h n Patricl Colatch, Lafayette
College's nev\ chapliiin and director
of religious life.
It is a direct result of this kind
of friendly enxironment that convinced Colatch that he wanted to
work on a college campus. While
an undergraduate at West "Virginia
Wesleyan College, Colatch says that
the chaplain there was his staunch
"friend and advocate." While he
had wanted to be a minister from
the time he was 14, Colatch said
that this college experience was the
time that convinced him to work
with odicr college siudents.
Colatch is already making his
presence felt. Robert Weiner, Jones
Professor of History, described him
as an "open, loving, extremely intelligent member of our community."
Weiner expects that Colatch will
continue the same general tradition
that was experienced under previous Director of Religious Life Gary
"[Colatch] will give energy and
focus to the religious program of
the College. . . . All members of
die community should get to know
him," said Weiner.

said that Colatch had "clarity
about creating a community that
supports religious life," as well as

backgrounds explore their reUgious
Colatch worked at Allegheny
CoUege for the last ten years, but
decided to move on when Allegheny restructured his position to the
point where it had lost some of its
importance, cutting liis job from a
year-round to a nine month position. He said that this eliminated
the time he had previously used to
plan programs for the following
semester. Colatch felt that the program was not mox'ing in a favorable
direction; therefore, he decided that
it was a "good time to move on."
Colatch said that he wanted to
find a school that was serious about
the religious director's position,
and was impressed by Lafayette's
"strong commitment to [its] reUgious life program" and its desire
to raise the program's profilc\ C^olatch said that this, along with the
coUege's overall outstanding reputation, led him to choose Lafayette.
Colatch had developic^d many
programs during his tenure at Allegheny that he said he hopes to
incorporate at Lafayette. H e has
already brought one such program
to fruition wilh his Bible Studies
class available exclusively to firstyear students. He idso hopes to start
a Religious Awareness Week.
Colatch said that the pinnacle
of his career wiU most likely occur
next month when Allegheny students who were involved with his
ReUgious Life Program will come
back from aU parts of the country
for their first reunion. He is thriUed

A & E predicts the Emmy's
BY H E L E N D U F F Y , B I L L
t's that lime again. This Sunday
night the 56th Annual Emmy
.\wards wiU air on ABC at 8 p.m.
VVilh all the talented casts and
actors nominated this year, it was
difficult to predict who would lake
home the mosl prestigious honors
in television. However, after reviewing the nominees, several staff writers picked their selections for this
year's show.
Best TV C o m e d y :
This year the award for best comedy will most likely go to the new
show of the bunch, "Arrested Development." "Sex and the City"
is already off the air and "WiU &
Grace" and "Everybody Loves
Raymond" (last year's winner) are
considered old news. As for "Curb
Your Enthusiasm," audiences lend
to be mixed, as some people consider the show too frustrating. (JZ)
Best Actor i n a C o m e d y :
This is the mosl bitlensweet calegory to discuss. The nominees are
all very talented, bul John Ritter
wiU take this category. It wiU be a
fitting farewell to a great aclor who
departed from us loo soon. I do not
see how any other,nominec will win
the Emmy. (BO) '
Best Supporting Actor in a
This is an extremely tough calegory
lo predict, as all the nominees are
exceUent choices. Brad Garret from
"Everybody Loves Raymond" is my
prediction to lake the award based
on talent alone, but since when are
Hollywood ilwards based only on
talent? Do not be surprised if one
of the other nominees takes the
iiward. (BO)
Best Actress in a Comedy:
I have m i x e d e m o t i o n s a b o u t
this category. 1 feel lhal Patricia
Heaton from "Everybody Loves
Raymond" should win this Emmy.
Unfortunately, Sarah Jessica Parker
will likely rob Patricia of a welldeserved Emmy. None of the "Sex
and the City" women have ever
won an Emmy. Look for Sarah lo
be the firsl (and only one of the
nighl). (BO)
Best Supporting Actress in a
I predict that Doris Roberts from
" E v e r y b o d y Loves R a y m o n d "
will win this "Sex and the City"
dominated calegory (Kim Catlrall,
Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis
are all nominated). The presence of
all three women will work against
each olher in the selection. If a "Sex
and the City" diva is to win, look for
Kristin Davis to be the dark horse
of the calegory. (BO)
B e s t TV D r a m a :
Unfortunately, I feel that this year's
award for best T V drama will most
likely go to the v<^Jeran "The Sopranos." WhUe I would love lo see Fox's
hit show "24" win the award, I do
not see it happening, although it has
an incredible cult following. Also
nominated, bul nol likely lo win,
is the "West Wing," which, afler so
much Emmy success, is running on
its lasl wheels. (HD)
B e s t Actor i n a D r a m a :
As in mosl of the categories, " I h e
Sopranos" is the favorite to win this
one as well. James Gandolfini is the
perennial favorite to win this award.
Many entertainment sources report that Anthony LaPiiglia from
"Without a Trace" will take home
the award. WhUe Gandolfini is my
favorite, I will trust the entertainment sources and predict LaPagUa
will lake the Emmy home. (BO)
Best Supporting Actor in a
Again, "The Sopranos" will dominate this category. Steve Buscemi
gave an outstanding performance
on this season of the show, but was
outshined by Michael Imperioli.
Look for Imperioli to take home the
Emmy. Victor Garber of "Alias" is
the underdog pick. (BO)
B e s t Actress i n a D r a m a :
As much as she iippcals to the male
demographics,Jennifer Garner becomes the long-shot in this category.
As E! News points oul, Mariska
Hartigay is lucky to be nominated,
and the ratings drop that "The
West Wing" took will hurl Allison
Janney's chances. This leaves Edie
Falco of "The Sopranos" and Amber Tamblyn of 'Joan of Arcadia."
While many are predicting Amber's
victory, you do nol "go against the
family." My prediction is for "The
Sopranos" to extend their dominance with Edie Falco leaving wilh
the Emmy. (BO)
B e s t Supporting A c t r e s s i n a

categories to judge. Il was a break-

torn, simply due to the fact lhal
so many of my favorite shows
were n o m i n a t e d . While "Lale
Night with Conan O'Brien" and
the "Late Show with Diivid Letterman" are staples to this category, I
do not feel as if either has a chiince
of winning due lo their almost annual nominations. "Saturday Night
Live" proved to be a little stale this
season, and the new cast pales in
comparison lo those in years gone
by. My money is on the "Daily
Show with John Stewart," a show
thiit consistently proves its wit and
humor to nightly audiences captivated by its host. However, 1 would
nol discount "Chapelle's Show,"
which was a surprise nominee to
begin with; its rapid cull following
leaves room for an improbable, but
possible, win. (HD)
Best Reality/Competition
Even reality T V is getting awards
now. This year's list of nominees
has many popular fan favorites,
including "Survivor," "American
Idol," and "Last Comic Standing."
However, in my opinion, there is
no way that "The Apprentice" is
going to lose this category. Seriously, does the Donald ever lose?

ARIES (March 21-April 20) Turmoil
seems to be everywhere this week. Just
remember that a great deal of criticism
can be delivered eifectively with a
smile. It will make more sense to keep
people on your side if you can channel
your rage in a more direct way. Joy
could be just as habit forming as pessimism is.
TAURUS (April 21 - May 21) You may
have the opportunity to invest in a creative enterprise with unexpected money
coming from a faiTiily member who is
looking out for your best interests. If
a relationship is starting to feel a little
stagnant, try tofindways to increase
vitality, or get out.
GEMINI (May 22 - June 21) It's time
to take a lead from an ambitious acquaintance, and take your shot at fame
and fortune. Your love life may be a bit
rocky this week, so try to accentuate the
positive. It's time to sew up any loose
ends, leaving no stone unturned as you
finish up.
CANCER (June 22 - July 23)
Changes do not come easy, but those
that may occur in your personal life will
probably be more accepted than most.
Quiet time with family will give you the
opportunity to catch up with each others'
lives. When you put your mind to it, you
can accomplish just what you want.
LEO (July 24- August 23) You seem
to have a choice of paths to take. Make
sure that you are not achieving success
at the cost of others. Such ambition will
no doubt reap rewards you may not wish
for It feels as if you are running around
in circles; everything does not have to be
done by the book.
VIRGO (August 24 - September 23)
If you are getting too attached, you are
only setting yourself up for disappointment. Live in the here and now. Tomorrow will take care of itself. Much of
what you have been striving for is within
your grasp, but you may have to count
on others to help you reach tliat goal.
LIBRA (September 24 - October
23)Change is in the air Allow old
habits and emotions to be swept away
and you'll be surprised how fast new
and exciting situations will materialize.
Chances are that you've been trying
to work at things alone; stop and get
feedback from others.
SCORPIO (October 24 - November
22) During the week your physical
energy will abound. Use this new found
energy well and include others in the
activities, possibly children. Tie up any
loose ends and expect something in the
workplace to come to a head. You have
a lot to share with those around you.
SAGITTARIUS (November 23 - December 21) There is someone close to
you in desperate need offinancialhelp.
Look around you closely; this individual
may not be obvious. Feelings of passion
will follow you during the week. Direct
thisfieryenergy in a positive way. It is a
good time to express yourself romantically.
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January
20) Try to maintain your sunny spirit
in the face of seemingly depressing
circumstances. Do what you can and try
to stop worrying. You can do much to
change the situations youfindyourself
in. Do your best to act fairly, for money
matters are coming to a head.
AQUARIUS (January 21 - February
19) An existing relationship will flourish
if you trust the other person completely.
There is a real possibility for a new and
intense love. Your spark of enthusiasm
brings out the best in those around you.
This opportunity could pave the way for
more responsibility.
PISCES (February 20 - March 20)
You are doing well in your career
choice, but know you could be doing better if given the chance. That
opportunity for advancement is right
around the corner. Be sure you can
make good on your promises. There
is an introspective friend who needs
your emotional support this week.
Lights! Camera! Action!

Numerous a cappella groups bring camaraderie and music to campus
erhaps it is because the current g e n e r a t i o n of college
students grew up on the music
of Rockapella from Where in the
World is Carmen Sandiego? that the
a capella craze has become definitive of campus life. T h e r e always
seems to be an a cappella performance that people are bustling
off to see, whether it be Cadence,
C h o r d u r o y s , Q u i n t e s s e n c e , or
Soulfege. All four groups have
become the centerpiece of Laiayette a cappella. Few, however,
are aware of the vast distinctions
of each of the groups.
Cadence, Lafayette's resident
all-female a cappella group, is
the oldest a cappella group on
( ampus. It originated in the early
1990s, when the group 8 Days to
Midnight disbanded. Two female
members, Missy Labov Dwcck
and Jody Forester, founded Cadence in their sophomore year.
Cadence now receives competitive turnouts at their auditions

The right "Touch of Thai"
ot knowing what to do with
my family d u r i n g Parent's
Weekend, aside from the generic
c a m p u s tour, I decided to take
t h e m somewhere different and
try something new, namely, I'hai
T h e Touch of T h a i restaurant
on North 2nd Street in Easton has
a small, intimate, and authentic
setting. With no more than 15
tables, you and your party will
feel the genuine, personal experience of T h a i dining.
U p o n entering the restaurant,
you will pass through a small,
tropical g a r d e n with a golden
statue of Buddha. Moving into
the dining room, the walls are
lined with pictures and photos of
T h a i landscapes. In the corner of
the dining area, a television plays
T h a i music videos, allowing you
to learn a little about Thai culture
as you dine.
T h e service at Touch of T h a i
was very personable. T h e waiters
are knowledgeable of the menu
and of T h a i cuisine in general.
T h e y were able to answer all of
our questions about what exactly
my family and I were ordering.
In addition to the pleasant service, the owner of the restaurant
walked from table to talkie, asking
about the food and the service,
confirming that every aspect of
the meal was to our liking.
My family and I ordered an
a r r a y of different a p p e t i z e r s ,
entrees, and desserts, all of which
tasted excellent and werc proportioned generously. A large silver
bowl of white rice came-with all
of the entrees to complement the
chicken, beef, or fish dinners that
were ordered.
Specifically, some of my favorites were p h o t - p r e a w - w a n - k a i
(chicken, c a r r o t s , c u c u m b e r s ,
and pineapple all in a sweet and
sour sauce). T h e dificrences in
flavoring a n d c o m b i n a t i o n of
ingredients made it distinct and
Also tasty was our satay-kai
appetizer, which is m a r i n a t e d
c h i c k e n skewers with p e a n u t
sauce. Lastly, one of the spicier
dishes listed on the menu was the
him-ma-pon-kai, which is beef
with vegetables a n d c a s h e w s .
While the dish itself was quite
tasty, I was a little dissapointed
by its lack of spiciness.
Overall, I found all the things
we ordered to be delicious - they
were cooked well, and to me,
tasted like a good Chinese meal.
A common misconception of
T h a i food (that I initially shared)
is that Thai food is almost identical to Indian food. I learned it is
vastly dilTerent.
T h e spicy dishes on the menu
at Touch of T h a i are not as spicy
as I imagined. Every dish that wc
ordered was seasoned well and
tasted great.
Overall Experience
The price of dining at Touch of
Thai is very reasonable. T h e meal
totaled $60 for four people, not
including a tip. This $60 included
drinks, appetizers, entrees, and
dessert. And for all of you over
21 years old who wish to eat out
at Touch of Thai, you must bring
your own beer or other alcoholic
beverages, because the restaurant
does not have a liquor license.
Overall, my trip to Touch of
Thai was a pleasant experience.
I would highly recommend the
restaurant and testify that Touch
of Thai is a great place to take
your family or your friends.

Jason Mraz's new live album, Tonighty

o most people Jason Mraz is
that guy who had one hit on
the radio, " T h e Remedy (I Won't
Worry)." To those who have his
studio album, WailingforMy Rocket
to Come, he is an artist who is talented in both songwriting and
the exploration of pop through
various genres.
Those familiar with Rocket are
probably vaguely aware that his
pop music is an amalgam of many
musical styles, including country,
jazz, singer/songwriter folk, and
hip-hop rhythms.
However, someone who is lucky
enough to have experienced Jason
Mraz live has a true awareness
of the power of his wide-ranging
voice, and ability to warp genres
as he hammers out a set of cclec-

tic tunes.
Mraz's new live album, Tonight,
.Not Again, is successful in capturing the energy and pizazz of his
live show. T h e talent that Mraz
showcases contrasts sharply with
the vibe of his bland debut studio album. Mraz is a confident
master of the stage, revealing his
personality through dialogue and
improvisation during his sets.
H e also gets some help on the
album from an enhanced b a n d
a n d featured guests.
T h e song that best captures
Mraz's live energy and ability is
"Too M u c h Food," which features J o h n Popper, the frontman
of Blues Traveler, the blues/rock
quartet that found great success
in the mid nineties.
Popper infuses the song with
t h e soul t)f his signature harm o n i c a playing, while M r a z
fills the vocals with energy as
he unleashes his hip-hop styled
delivery of the lyrics. D u r i n g
the h a r m o n i c a solo, the drumm e r a d d s a disco beat, which
creates a danceable blues tune.
Elsewhere, M r a z showcases his
versatility as he moves from a
passionate ballad crooner on the
title track to the hip-hop inspired
"Curbside Prophet."
On " C o m m o n Pleasure," a
song not found on the studio effort, M r a z makes full use of his
guests from the Chicago S t o r m /
O h i o Players H o r n s , which include a trumpet, trombone, and
saxophone. T h e strong jazz flavor
is apparent in both the vocals—
which incorporates Mraz's sig-
nature tongue rolling—and from
the jazz rhythms on guitar and
"No Stopping Us" is the perfect
example of a song that sounds
sleepy and overproduced on the
album but is packed with an energized funk beat when performed
live. T h e energy level is also
enhanced by Mraz's comprehensive band. T h e featured member
is Toca R i v e r a , w h o performs
backup vocals, plays percussion,
and carries out an onstage banter
with Mraz throughout the show.
T h e rest of the band is composed
of guitar, bass, keyboards, drums,
and the less conventional banjo.
Even though great use is made
of the b a n d , M r a z clearly can
stand on his own with his classically trained voice. He executes
"Absolutely-Zero" with almost
no backup -just a mild band accompaniment. Mraz croons the
sultry ballad, which at times has a
George Michael eighties feel to it,
and later sounds like his contemporary, Rufus Wainwright, but
overall retains his characteristic
Tonight, Not Again, is a nobrainer purchase for any serious
Mraz fan, and for anyone looking
to pick up a high-energy Hve album by a n eclectic artist. Unlike
many live albums, Mraz does not
simply regurgitate the songs on
his record for the sake of getting a
ne\y album on the market. Tonight,
Not Again includes some new gems,
as well as Mraz's best tunes, that
make it appropriate for tonight,
and again.

Men's tennis sweeps One-gpal losses dropfieldhockey
he members of the Men's Tennis Team proved they know how
lo start a season on a positive note.
Last Saturday saw Lafayette face
its first opponent of the season in
La Salle University. T h e Explorers
proved to be anything but difficult for
the Leopards en route to a 7-0 victory
at Sullivan Courts.
While the early matches consisted
mostly of doubles contests, senior capt;unJohn Zazzu played his first singles
match against La Salle freshman Eric
Click and glided to a 6-0, 6-1 victory
over the young Explorer.
Without looking back, Zazzu got
off to a quick start by putting away
multiple winners. One notable play
occurred when Click, looking to gain
an early advantage in a game, hit the
ball hard over the net, not exjjecting
a return shot. Suddenly, Zazzu, widi
arms stretched out, put the ball away
vvitli a well-placed wanner.
"It was a good way to start off' die
season," Zazzu said. "My teammates
played well, and I don't think I
would be where I am today without
the support of my fan club."
Zazzu entered his senior season
with a career singles record of 26
vvdns and 21 losses, and was a career 27-20 in doubles play. He was
named captain for a second-straight
H e a d Coach Eric Ratchford,
entering his second season at the
Leopards' helm, is welcoming back
four of his top singles players from
a year ago, including Zazzu. Seven
freshmen have joined the squad and
are looking to gain eariy success in this
year's competition.
Sunday's action showed litde difference for Lafayette, as the Leopards
rolled past Robert Morris in the
morning matches 6-1, and Rider
University 6-1 in the afternoon. This
time, Zazzu teamed up with doubles
partner Andrew Mott '06 as they
eased to an 8-3 win over Robert
Morris's Mhamed Mekaovi and
Youssef Mekaovi, and an 8-3 win
over Rider's EUot Eiche and Ragdec
Ratchford had nothing but praise
for diis year's freshman squad, who
went undefeated during the weekend's matches. Brett Kraft '08 and
Paul Cuarino '08 won their singles
matches against La Salle, Robert
Morris, and Rider, and went undefeated as a doubles team against the
three schools as well.
"We got off to a good start, and
we look to continue at this level as the
season continues," said Ratchford.
T h e Leopards will see action
tliis weekend as tlie squad embarks
upon their first road trip of die year.
Lafayette visits Siena College in
Loudonxdlle, New York tomorrow
afternoon, and then drives south to
play Delaware State at Dover on
Sunday at noon.

t was a tough week for the Lafayette Field Hockey Team, as
two strong defensive efforts went
to waste. T h e Leopards lost two
games by one goal apiece to both
Davidson (1-2) and the University
of Pennsylvania (2-3). Lafayette
(2-3) now looks towards tonight's
meeting at Penn State to try a n d

T h e Leopards' first loss of the

Princeton up next for football
nother daunting task faces the
Lafayette Football Team early
in tlie season. T h e Leopards will
march into Princeton University
tomorrow evening facing the unknown, as well as a Tigers' team
that has only surrendered two wins
on its home field to the Leopards
since 1883. The only two Lafayette
victories were a 6-0 win in 1909,
and a 47-37 win in 1984. However,
the Leopards have won two of the
last three games against Princeton,
including a 28-13 win in Easton
last season.
"I..ast year we came out flat, and
our kids want to avenge for that
loss," said Princeton Head Coach
Roger Hughes. "The only thing we
have to go on is I'V footage, which
is not so great because we cannot
analyze the Leopard defense due to
the poor angles. I am especially concerned about their special teams."
Lafayette wdll be at a disadvantage
as well. Tomorrow is the season
opener for the Tigers, so the Leopards' coaching staff wall not have any
Princeton game footage to analyze
in order to create counter offensive
and defensive strategies.
"We have two games under our
belt, which could be to our advantage," Lafayette Head Coach Frank
Tavani said, "but we don't have any
film of them.- \\'ip beat them last year,
so I'm sure they are pounding that
into their kids. The bottom line is,
we have to go down there and make

Tigers' roster that is returning 19
of 24 starters from last year. Senior
quarterback Matt Verbit leads an
offense that averaged 388 yards per
game in 2003. Verbit direw for 2,499
yards and 15 touchdowns last year,
while the running back duo of Jon
Veach and Brendan Benson is an
equally letlud force. Veach compiled
642 yards last season, including a
205-yard peribrmance at Harvard,
while Benson finished second on die
team vrith 467 yards and a 128-yard
performance at Brown.
Chnton Wu, Eric Walz, Derek
Davis, and Greg Fields wdll be the
main threats at an evenly matched
wide receiver position. J e r e m y
Moore, Andrew Wilson, and Dave
Szelingowski, three of the five starting offensive lineman in 2003, will
be returning this season. A fourth
lineman, Ben Brielmaier, started on
the defensive line in 2003.
Arguably, Princeton's greatest
strength is the linebacker corps led
by 2002 All-Ivy League First Team
m e m b e r Zak Keasey. Although
he missed the 2003 season due to
eligibility issues, Keasey compiled
a team-high 88 tackles in 2002, including a season high 13 tackles and
a momentum changing interception
in a 31-19 win over Lafayette. Keasey wdll be flanked by the league's

Cornerback Jay McCareins and

Princeton is selected to finish
sixth in the eight-team league. The
Tigers were 2-8 in 2003, wdth three
losses coming on the final play of the
game. Lafayette is 4-33-3 all-time
against the Tigers.
The Leopards' defense is ranked
second in Division I-AA, having only
surrendered an average of 134.5
yards per game. Pordand State is
first with 99 yards per game. Lafayette is also ranked second in pass
defense wdth 59 yards, and fourth
in scoring defense wdth 6.5 points
surrendered per game.
"Marvin Snipes ['07], Dan Liseno
['07J, and Maurice Bennett ['06] are
all strong and quick," said Hughes.
"Lafayette's defense blitzes a lot wdth
pressure, and we need an answer to
those secondary zone blitzes."

Tavani said. "[Offensive lineman
Joe] Ungrady ['05] was injured right
before the game, and we had a different front than we practiced with.
We had a guard switch to tackle,
and there were some errors made
in protection. Maurer took the brunt
of it."
However, the L^eopards' offensive
efforts did not go unrecognized. MgCourt, who gained 104 yards on 24
carries along wdth two receptions for
21 yards, was named Patriot League
Offensive Player of the Week for his
efforts. Conversely, Georgetown's
Michael Ononibaku was named
Defensive Player of the Week by
recording 12 tackles, three sacks,
and a forced fumble.
Georgetown lomning back Kim
Sarin, who was the Patriot League
Player of the Week in Week one, was
limited to 78 yards on 27 carries fbr
an average of 2.9 yards per rush. In
week one. Sarin gained 154 yards

tudents, family members, and
friends filled t h e stands at
Metzgar Fields Saturday night to
cheer on the Lafayette Women's
Soccer Team during Family Weekend. With three freshmen in the
starting line-up, the Lady Leopards (2-4) set out against Cornell
University (1-0-1), who has won
all four previous match-ups against
Lafayette, including a 5-1 victory in
2002. Unfortunately for the Leopards, a fifth game has been added
to the Big Red's winning streak by
taking a 1-0 'Golden Goal' oventime victory.
" T h e Cornell games all have
been very close," said Head Coach
Wayne Miller "We knew going in
they were going to be good, so we
wanted to be solid defensively and
get some chances on the offensive
end. We held them scoreless for
over 90 minutes; we just didn't
get enough scoring opportunities
Playing without injured captains
Meghan Sweeney '05 and Kelly
Brady '05, Lafayette battled for
most of the game in the center of
the field. Lafayette's new triangular
center midfield formation, consisting of Carolyn Fisher '07, Trista
Burke '07, and Jennifer Ryan '06,
used strong, aggressive plays to
distribute the ball up the field.
"We were trying to play together
in the center to make the right
combinations,"" ^aid Ryan. "Unfortunately, Cornell has a tough
midfield to penetrate, so it was hard
to beat them."
Burke, notorious for her power in
the air, directed the ball forward to
Kelli McMahon '07 and Caroline
Tutde '08 for execution. Both offensive players' aggressiveness led
to forward movement and a total of
six shots on goal. Substitutes Alison
Hingley '08 and Ashley Yelland
'08 also plowed through Cornell's
defensive midfield with the help
of Hingley's speed and Yelland's
persistent .slide tackles in the center
of the field.
Tuttle almost led Lafayette to
a goal when she was fouled just
outside Cornell's box. While fans
cheered for a penalty kick, officials
placed the ball right outside the
line. With a solid strike, Tuttle's
shot just missed the left bottom
corner Only minutes later, in retaliation, Cornell received its own
free kick outside Lafayette's 18-yard
box. However, the kicker's shot was
blocked by the soUd two-man wall
of Ellie Burke '06 and Arielle Fields
Despite constant battling in the
center, the score may have been
different had it not been for the
solid, impermeable defensive line
of Kelly Galen '08, captain Emily
Kellner '05, and Zoe Gavriilidis
"It always hurts the team chemistry when two of your senior starters
and captains are missing from the
lineup," said Miller, "but the overall
play of Kelly Galen and some minor adjustments to the rest of the
defensive unit has responded very
well. Emily and Zoe are veterans
wdth playoff experience and know
what their responsibilities are."
Not only was Lafayette's defense
instrumental in the 0-0 regulation
time score, but goalkeeper Amy
Kalista '05 tallied six saves for her
teammates. O n e crucial save took
place towards the end of regulation
when a chaotic bobble in the sixyard box was confidcndy recovered
by Kalista to save a potential goal.
Still scoreless when the 90-minute
buzzer rang, Lafayette went into
'Golden Goal' overtime. Six minutes and 13 seconds in, Cornell's
Kara Ishikawa ripped an unstoppable shot from eighteen yards
out into the upper left corner of
the goal.
"It was a great team effort tonight," Kalista said. "Everybody
played so well, from the front to the
midfield to the back. It was a solid
performance, and wejust needed to
finish the game with a goal in the

facing enormous pressure from
Rider, also picked up a yellow card

"Fhe score remained at a deadlock through the second half, leading the teams into overtime. Lafayette keeper Mike Tortora '06 kept
the defense strong with 14 saves.
"Fhe.performance helped Tortora
earn Patriot League Defensive
Player of the Week honors.
However, it was Hawkins who elevated the Leopards to victory just
minutes into overtime. T h e goal
came on a header off a corner kick
by Harju. Hawkins has three goals
this season, proving he is ready to
fill the shoes of former Leopard
star and hometown friend, Paulo
Coelho '04.
"Scott has scored some big goals
for us," said Head Coach Dennis
Bohn. " H e ' s just done tremendously. I see him as a tenacious kid
that plays with a lot of energy."
Flawkins's hard work has paid
off, earning him a starting spot on
the team, along with his classmate
Luke Sullivan '08.
"We worked so hard in pre-season, and I am glad it all has paid
off," said Hawkins. "Hopefully
we can keep this winning streak

Lafayette was coming off a tough
three-game loss on September 9

the Leopards needed to psychologically prepare themselves.
"We wanted to go into the match-
es intense and refocus after our loss
on Wednesday," said Olichwier "We
wanted to find our intensity and to
all have the same goals to wdn."
Lafayette found the intensity level
it needed and defeated the Knights
by a score of 3-1. In the first game,
the score was 10-7 in favor of FDU
before Olichwder and Canto-Ponce
dominated on the Leopards' serve to
put together a seven-point run that
brought the Leopards to a 21-11
"Serving was very impressive this
weekend," said Olichwier "In the
first couple matches no one had
missed. It made a big difference
because serving is such an individual
thing, and it really helped to keep
our momentum up."
Canto-Ponce had an impressive
match all-around with a team high

were to have any doubts alxjut
this phrase, just ask the Lafayette
Football Team. Despite surrendering five turnovers, the Leopards
(2-0) defense held the Georgetown

132 yards last Saturday in Washington, D C . And not only did the

the winning touchdown with 10:24
remaining in the game.
"I am extra proud of how we
played," said Head Coach Frank
Tavani. "I talked to the team the
night before about facing adversity, of which, up until game time,
we had not seen any. We had five
turnovers, mostly in their scoring
territory, and our defense h a d a
monumental effort and just focused
on the next play."

by linebacker Dion Witherspoon
'06 at the two-yard line. As the ball
was dancing in the air, defensive
end Andrew Brown '06 grabbed
the ball and fell into the end zone
for the go-ahead 10-6 touchdown.
"High school was the last time I
scored," said Brown. "I am excited,
but not just for myself Mike Davis
had a great kick, Johnson downed
the ball at the one, Witherspoon
hit the quarterback, and Bennett
tipped the ball. When I had the ball
I knew I was close to the end zone.

was the five or the goal Une."
