FROSTBURG, MD — Junior R.J. Purnell (Crisfield, Md./Crisfield) had a goal and an assist, and the Bobcats blew open a close game with three goals in a six-minute span of the second half en route to a 6-0 victory over visiting Lake Erie Saturday afternoon.

Frostburg State (4-3, 2-0 AMCC) took a 1-0 halftime lead when Purnell found the net off an assist from sophomore Steve Brett (Cumberland, Md./Fort Hill)in the game's 21st minute.

Freshman Mike Jungerheld (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake) scored on a header from Purnell with 18:28 remaining, and senior Gary Lesko (Waldorf, Md./McDonough) blasted a direct kick from 30 yards out to put FSU up, 3-0.

Freshman Jon Roth (Gaithersburg, Md./Magruder) gave the Bobcats a 4-0 lead just under a minute later off a nice assist from sophomore James Denison (Fort Walsh, Md./Canterbury).

Junior Jon Wieland (Woodbridge, Va./Hylton) scored his first goal of the season off another direct kick just outside the 18-yard mark with 6:21 left, and sophomore Scott Mucci (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake) concluded the scoring with an assist from freshman Greg Moore (Woodbine, Md./Glenelg) with 1:52 left.

Junior Mike Pregnall (Herndon, Va./Oakton) made two saves and recorded his first shutout of the season.
