Men's lacrosse falls in final seconds at Hampden-Sydney

Colin McGuire winds up to take a shot.

Lynchburg, Va. -- The Lynchburg College men's lacrosse team ended the regular season with a close 14-13 loss to Hampden-Sydney.

Senior midfielder Colin McGuire (Odenton, Md.) had a strong offensive showing, leading the Hornets with five goals along with one assist. Sophomore attackman Trammel Robinson (Memphis, Tenn.) picked up three ground balls and collected two goals. Senior goalie CJ Santora (Tewksbury, Mass.) made 14 saves in the net.

McGuire tied the game at 13-all with 40 seconds to play, but the Tigers' John Burke netted the game-winning goal with 7.8 seconds remaining.

 

THE RUNDOWN

Final: Hampden-Sydney 14, Lynchburg 13

Records: Lynchburg (9-8, 6-3 ODAC), Hampden-Sydney (13-4, 8-1 ODAC)

Venue: Everett Stadium, Hampden-Sydney College, Hampden-Sydney, Va.

 

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • The first quarter started out slow on both sides until sophomore midfielder Kevin Rogers (Leesburg, Va.) got Lynchburg on the board with an assist from McGuire. Hampden-Sydney responded by scoring the next three goals for a first-period lead. Junior attackman Logan Adams (Grosse Pointe, Mich.), assisted by Robinson, pushed in one more goal to end the quarter 3-2 in favor of the hosts.

  • Lynchburg managed to tie the game, 4-4, in the second quarter after a goal from Robinson, assisted by Adams. The teams traded leads, but it was Lynchburg who came out on top and went into the half ahead, 7-6.

  • Both teams collected three goals each leaving Lynchburg ahead, 10-9.

  • Still a close game, Lynchburg and Hampden-Sydney were tied four separate times in the fourth quarter. With only 40 seconds left in the game, McGuire tied up the game, 13-13, with an unassisted goal. Looking as though the game would go into overtime, Burke, assisted by Jack Hayden, scored the game winning goal for the Tigers with 7.8 seconds to play.

LOOKING AHEAD

Lynchburg will take the No. 4 seed into the upcoming conference tournament. The Hornets will play host to fifth-seeded Randolph-Macon on Tuesday, May 1 at 7 p.m. on Shellenberger Field. The winner of that game advances to the championship weekend, which will be played at Washington and Lee.
