Lynchburg, Va. -- The 15th-ranked University of Lynchburg men's lacrosse team fell, 11-8, to No. 8 Cabrini on Shellenberger Field Saturday afternoon.

Senior attackman Evan Lombardo (Franklin Park, N.J.) also added three goals of his own and picked up one ground ball, junior attackman Colin Dean (Havre de Grace, Md.) earned one goal and two assists, and senior midfielder Craig Koester (Wildwood, Mo.) went 12-for-21 at the face-off and picked up six ground balls.

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • Lynchburg opened up the game with an unassisted goal by sophomore midfielder Clayton Jones (Lynchburg, Va.). Cabrini answered back with two goals, but Lombardo tied it up, 2-2, as time expired in the first quarter on a fine assist by Dean.

  • The Cavaliers started the second with five straight goals before Lynchburg recovered for the final two jabs of the half. Dean and Rogers each scored in the final four minutes to cut Cabrini's lead to 7-4.

  • Rogers picked up two unassisted goals in the third, but the Hornets weren't able to cut into the deficit and trailed 9-6 entering the fourth.

  • Lombardo scored twice in the final 15 minutes to keep the Hornets in the game, but the Cavaliers managed to kill clock with long possessions and maintained their lead with two fourth-quarter goals of their own.

 

LOOKING AHEAD

The Hornets will travel to Pennsylvania Saturday, March 2 to take on the York Spartans at 1 p.m. The two teams will celebrate the One Love Foundation, a nonprofit aimed at ending relationship violence, before and during the contest.
