MEN’S COLLEGE LACROSSE
The Endicott men’s lacrosse team’s early out of conference success has earned them the No. 11 ranking nationally in Division 3.
Yesterday, the Gulls carried that momentum into Commonwealth Coast Conference play, when they took down the University of New England, 14-5, in their league opener at home.
Jeremy Morgan and Kyle Weber both had three goals and one assist for unbeaten Endicott (4-0) and Harrison Cotter had a hat trick with three goals. Colin Bannon added a goal and two assists and Mitch Tapley scored twice as the Gulls shook off a 5-5 halftime tie and scored nine unanswered in the second half.
Salem State 15, Nichols 11: Bobby Bourgeois had three goals and an assist and Ben Melaugh had two goals and one assist as the Vikings rode an 8-2 run in the second quarter to victory. Andy Rice and Jacob Scordato also scored two goals each to help Salem State (2-2) build a 15-6 lead before visiting Nichols scored the last five goals of the game in the fourth quarter. Goalie Dom Rovetto earned the win and allowed only two goals in the first half.
Colby 13, Gordon 10: The Scots had their two-game winning streak stopped and they fell to 3-2.
Haverford 6, Salem State 3: The Vikings fell in Florida to dip to 2-5 on the season.
Salem State splits: The Lady Vikings halted a two game skid in Fort Myers yesterday when they beat Eastern Nazarene, 7-0. Earlier in the day Salem State lost to St. Joseph’s Maine, 4-0, and the team now carries a 3-7 record with the home opener scheduled for next Tuesday against Curry.
WOMEN’S COLLEGE LACROSSE
Bowdoin 15, Endicott 5: The nationally ranked Polar Bears were too strong for the Gulls (2-1), who suffered their first loss of the spring. Ellie Clayman handled the majority of the scoring for Endicott with three goals and Callie Murphy and Meghan Lannon also scored. Murphy controlled four draws but Bowdoin pulled ahead midway through the first half and never looked back.
