Men Suffer 10 Straight Losses

Lacrosse Teams Still Look For Wins

The men's lacrosse team fell, 17-9, in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) contest to the Quinnipiac Bobcats on Saturday, April 5 at Kessler Field. With the loss, the men's record drops to 0-10, 0-3 within the MAAC, while the Bobcats improved to 5-4, 3-1 within the MAAC.

The Bobcats pulled ahead early with a 3-0 lead, each goal coming from a different athlete. MU was able to put themselves on the board before the first quarter was over courtesy of freshman Eric Berger's unassisted goal made with 1:49 left to play. Bobcat Ryan Keenan reciprocated the mark with his second straight goal making the game 4-1 at the end of the first quarter.

The second quarter opened with an unassisted goal from MU freshman Chris Daly, however, QU's Dylan Webster found the back of the net twice bringing the score to a four goal margin at 6-2.

The Hawks answered with a pair of goals as Daly connected with the net once more off an assist from freshman Dan Bloodgood. Freshman Kevin Murphy accounted for the second goal, which was unassisted, with seven minutes to play in the second.

The Bobcats increased the scoring gap from two to five within three minutes. Dylan Webster was responsible for two of the goals while Pat Corcoran was credited with the other.

Bloodgood was able to break up QU's scoring streak with a goal assisted by junior Zach Johannes. This marked the final goal in the second quarter and brought the score to 9-5 at half time.

The third opened with a nearly immediate goal from QU's Keenan who was fed by Corcoran. The two repeated the action seven minutes by scoring the second goal of the third quarter and brought the game to 11-5.

MU junior Ryan Schwartz cut the Bobcats lead to five with 3:06 remaining in the third via an unassisted goal. QU scored the following two goals, one which came from Michael Sagl and the other from Keenan.

Heading into the fourth quarter with a 14-6 deficit, Bloodgood notched an unassisted goal to bring the Hawks within seven. As seen in quarters prior, QU reciprocated with two unassisted goals of their own from Tom McNaney and Matt Kycia.

It was then MU's turn to make an unassisted tally which came from junior Ryan Horsch. The Bobcats' Corcoran once again made an unassisted goal giving QU a nine point lead.

Berger made a last second attempt for a comeback after he scored off an assist from Daly, however, the surge was not enough and the Hawks fell, 17-9.

Quinnipiac's Keenan and Webster were the high scorers for the day with five each while MU's high scorers were Bloodgood, Berger, and Daly with two goals apiece. The Hawks outshot the Bobcats 45-34 and also had five fewer turnovers.

The men will next play against MAAC opponent, the Manhattan Jaspers, at 7 pm on Saturday, April 12.
