Men’s Lacrosse Falls at York (Pa.)

YORK, Pa. – Despite scoring first, the Wesley College men's lacrosse team fell at Capital Athletic Conference rival York (Pa.), 13-6, on Wednesday afternoon at Kinsley Field.  The Wolverines fall to 5-6 overall and 0-5 in the CAC while the Spartans improve to 8-5 with a 4-1 mark in league play.

Less than three minutes into the game, Nate Gemmato put Wesley on top with a score of the unassisted variety, however, York scored four-straight to close out the period and the first two goals of the second to take a 6-1 lead.

Before the end of the half, Sam Seibert and Joe Fingles were able to find the back of the net but the Wolverines trailed, 8-3 at the half.  Devin Hyatt scored midway through the third but Wesley, who were playing very shorthanded, was unable to cut into the deficit and was down by eight going into the final period.

James Moss and Fingles on assists from John Chenault and Alex Skidmore helped the Wolverines outscore York, 2-1, over the final 15 minutes but the discrepancy was too much to overcome.

Josh Dean made 12 saves in goal along with a team-high six ground balls while Oakley Dieter caused a pair of turnovers to lead the Navy & White.

Tyler Hutson led all players with five points on three goals and two assists.

Wesley travels to Christopher Newport on Saturday, April 11 for a 1 pm CAC faceoff.
