Sophomore Dylan Webster’s four goals weren’t enough for the Bobcats as they lost 9-6 to No. 17 Fairfield University Wednesday afternoon.

“I think it’s been a long week,” said head coach Eric Fekete. “Sometimes these midweek games are a blessing, and sometimes they’re a curse.”

Webster’s four goals gives him a teaming leading six on the year. He scored a goal in every quarter of the game.

Quinnipiac (0-3, 0-0 NEC) freshman goalie Dylan Torey made 17 saves in the loss, while Fairfield (5-0, 0-0 ECAC) goalie Charlie Cipriano saved 14 for the Stags.

“He’s the goalie of the future for us at this point,” said Fekete.

The Bobcats will play their next game Saturday when they host Detroit Mercy at 1 p.m.

“We gotta watch some film tomorrow,” said Fekete. “We only have two days to get ready but the team is getting better. When you have young guys it’s a developmental progress.”

The Stags scored their first two goals five minutes into the game from freshman Drew Frederico and sophomore Eric Warden.

Fairfield’s John Snellman scored three goals in just two minutes in the second quarter to break the tie and give Fairfield a 5-2 lead with 6:54 left. Snellman leads the Stags with 14 goals..

With less than five minutes remaining in the game, Quinnipiac and Fairfield scored three times in just 40 seconds. Basil Kostaras scored the first goal, extending his scoring streak to eight straight games. That was followed by goals from Fairfield’s Reed Marko and Webster.

“I like this team a lot and I believe in them,” said Fekete.
