Men’s Lacrosse Edged by Marymount

DOVER, Del. – Wesley College's men's lacrosse game dropped a 9-6 Capital Athletic Conference decision to Marymount on Wednesday night at Scott D. Miller Stadium. The Saints improve to 8-3 overall and 1-2 in league play while the Wolverines now stand at 5-4 and 0-3 in the CAC.

The game was neck-and-neck throughout as the game saw five lead changes in the first three quarters. Tyler DaSilva put Marymount on top first with a goal just 48 seconds in but Jack Redefer and John Chenault scored a pair of goals just over a minute apart to give Wesley a 2-1 lead with 7:15 left in the first.

Marymount then scored two-straight before Mike Rakos tied the score at three with just over a minute to go in the opening period.  Both teams then scored twice in the second with Sam Seibert and Jathan Mahaffey rattling the cage to send the game into the half tied at five.

A goal by Drew Hammer with 8:28 left in the third was sandwiched between a pair of Saints tallies and Marymount blanked Wesley in the fourth to seal the victory.

Wesley controlled time of possession throughout the game, outshooting Marymount, 51-33 while holding a 51-33 advantage in ground balls.  Derek DiGiovanni was a force for the Saints in goal, however, stopping 19 shots to earn the victory while Sam Kennedy stopped just seven shots for the Wolverines.

Kyle Funk played a major factor on the defensive end for Wesley, causing five turnovers and picking eight ground balls as Jack O'Neill won 14-of-19 faceoffs.

Jimmy Wendell and Chad Niegarth both had two goals to lead Marymount.

Wesley hosts CAC rival Frostburg State on April 5 at 12 pm.
