John Dolny and Daniel Prakopcyk scored three goals apiece to lead Stevens Tech past host Hartwick College, 11-8, in an Empire 8 Conference men's lacrosse game Wednesday at Wright Stadium.

Freshman Vito DeMola scored the opening goal 1 minute, 33 seconds in, giving Hartwick (3-4, 1-2) its only lead.

Brandon Faubert tied it with 2:21 gone, and less than a minute later, Matt Keating gave the Ducks (4-2, 3-0) the lead for good.

Stevens Tech built on its 2-1 lead after one quarter on goals from Prakopcyk, Christopher Laurita and Alex Heckman, who scored in a span of 2:06 for a 5-1 lead with 6:04 to play before halftime.

DeMola then scored back-to-back goals, but Dolny and Prakopcyk each scored in the last 1:10 as the Ducks took a 7-3 lead into halftime.

Steve Caramello scored 49 seconds into the third period and DeMola converted a feed from Dan Hushion to pull Hartwick to 7-5 with 7:56 left in the quarter. Dolny pushed Stevens' lead back to four with consecutive goals, with 1:12 left in the third period and 3:43 into the fourth.

Prakopcyk gave the Ducks their biggest lead, at 10-5, when he scored with 9:30 to play. Hartwick rallied with three straight goals, from Caramello, Brandon Wilk and DeMola, before Heckman ended the scoring with 56 seconds left.

Freshman goalie Dave Decker finished with 14 saves, including eight in the third period, and improved to 4-2 for Stevens. Hartwick goalie John Meade made 10 saves and fell to 3-4.

DeMola led all scorers with five goals and one assist, tying a season-high he set during a win over Morrisville State earlier this season.
