DOVER, Del. – Junior Sam Seibert scored all four of his goals in the first quarter to lead the Wesley College men's lacrosse team to a 11-4 victory over Ferrum in its season opener on a snowy Saturday afternoon at Scott D. Miller Stadium. The Panthers are now 1-1 on the season.
Seibert notched the first goal of the year just 1:47 into the game, and following another unassisted goal and a score by classmate Jack Redefer (2g, 2a), Seibert added another two tallies off assists by Redefer and Will Fingles, giving the Wolverines a 5-0 lead after the first quarter.
Ferrum's CJ Asmus (1g, 1a)put the Panthers on the board with 11:20 remaining in the second quarter but Devin Hyatt answered with his first collegiate goal and James Moss added another with 38 ticks remaining in the half to give Wesley a 7-1 advantage at the break.
The Panthers battled back early in the third quarter with three unanswered goals before Moss found the back of the net on a man-up opportunity off an assist by Nate Gemmato.
Wesley took an 8-4 lead into the final period and left no doubt as John Chenault scored twice, sandwiching another goal by Redefer to round out the scoring for the day.
Josh Dean had an impressive collegiate debut in net for the Wolverines, making 14 saves in 58-plus minutes of action.
The Wolverines return to action on Saturday, February 21 at Shenandoah for a 1 pm faceoff.
