Orlin & Cohen Postgame Report: Teat and Orleman Set Rookie Records as Riptide Defeated By Thunderbirds In 2021-22 Home Finale

Uniondale, NY – Jeff Teat scored 10 points on two goals and eight assists, and Steven Orleman had 39 saves but the New York Riptide (6-11) were defeated 16-13 by the Halifax Thunderbirds (10-7) at Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, NY Saturday evening. With the loss, the Riptide were mathematically eliminated from NLL postseason contention.

 

With his third assist of the night in the first quarter, Teat broke both Tom Schreiber’s 2017 NLL rookie record of 61 assists, and Randy Staats’ NLL 2016 rookie record of 95 points. With his 14th save of the night, Orleman broke Matt King’s NLL rookie record for most saves in a season of 603 saves, which was set in 2002. Callum Crawford returned for the Riptide after missing the previous three games and scored eight points on five goals and three assists.

 

Dan Lomas opened up the game with a goal and has now scored in seven of the last eight games since his return from a torn Achilles. The teams traded goals as Crawford netted his first of the night, before Halifax jumped out to a 3-2 lead. Lomas would score the next two Riptide goals with the assists by Teat which set the single season rookie records, and tied the game at four. The teams traded a pair of goals as Crawford and Jake Fox lit the lamp to keep the score tied at the end of the first quarter.

 

Defense was the name of the game in the second quarter as the Riptide were held to just one goal as Crawford completed his hat trick, and the Thunderbirds scored three goals to take a 9-7 lead into the intermission. In the third quarter, Halifax opened up the scoring before the Riptide added a pair of goals from Connor Kearnan and Jay Thorimbert to close the gap to 10-9.

 

The Thunderbirds would end the quarter with two goals and open up the fourth with another to pull ahead 13-9. With the Riptide keeping pace, Crawford scored his fourth and fifth goals of the game to cut the lead to 14-11. Jeff Teat scored his two goals of the game to trim the lead to 14-13, but it was the Thunderbirds who would seal the game with two of their own, including an empty netter with 1:06 left.

 

The Riptide will hit the road next weekend for the final time this season as the team faces the Albany FireWolves on Saturday April 23th at 7:00pm from MVP Arena in Albany, NY. The game will be available to watch on ESPN+ and listen to on WRHU 88.7 FM, WRHU.org and the WRHU iPhone App. Live stats and periodic in-game updates will be available via Twitter @NewYorkRiptide.
