March 16, 1997|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Nathan Roost scored a career-high six goals and had one assist to lead unranked Hobart to a 19-12 upset of No. 13 Army yesterday at the Carrier Dome.

The result marked only the second time in the past five years that the Statesmen have won their season opener.

Roost scored three goals in the first quarter as Hobart went ahead 5-2. Leading 10-7 at halftime, Hobart (1-0) pulled away by scoring seven straight goals on just 10 shots in the opening 13 minutes of the third quarter.

The Cadets (2-1), who had beaten No. 6 Georgetown six days ago, were outshot 43-30.

Hobart, which lost to Army by seven goals last year, converted on six of 10 extra-man situations, including four in the second half.

Kevin DeWall had two goals and four assists for the Statesmen. Chad Hadlock had six goals for Army.
