Dickinson 10, Washington College
CHESTERTOWN, MD – Ninth-ranked Dickinson College came all the way back from an early 6-0 deficit to post a 10-9 win over host Washington College in Centennial Conference men's lacrosse action this afternoon on Kibler Field at Roy Kirby, Jr. Stadium. The Red Devils improved to 11-1 overall and remained unbeaten in the conference at 5-0 with the win, while the Shoremen fell to 4-6 and 2-4 with the loss. The Shoremen scored the first six goals of the game, finding the back of the net four times in the final 3:42 of the first quarter and twice more in the first 1:37 of the second to build a 6-0 lead. The Red Devils took their first and only lead of the game when Matt Cherry found Richard Craft for the game-winner in an extra-man situation with 1:55 to go. The Shoremen had a final possession with less than 20 seconds left, but could not find the equalizer as the Red Devils came away with the win.
Franklin & Marshall 11, Swarthmore
SWARTHMORE, Pa. – Franklin & Marshall freshman Cameron Setian recorded seven of his 13 saves before Swarthmore's Steve Selverian finally solved him 37:34 into Saturday's Centennial Conference (CC) tilt. It was too little too late for Selverian and company as the Diplomats' (8-3, 3-2 CC) offense had already ripped open an 8-0 lead before coasting to the finish line for an 11-5 win over the Garnet (3-8, 1-4 CC). Tristan Miller and Jimmy Wenk each scored three times for F&M, while Max Hubbard had a pair for the hosts.
Gettysburg 7, Ursinus 5
COLLEGEVILLE, Pa. – Gettysburg outscored Ursinus College 3-0 in the fourth quarter and the Bullets rallied to win a tight 7-5 Centennial Conference road contest Saturday afternoon. In a game that was tied three times, senior J.C. Ward scored the game-tying and go-ahead goals for the Bullets (7-5, 3-2 CC), who played without head coach Hank Janczyk on the sidelines. Janczyk left the field after feeling under the weather before the start of the game but assistant coaches Doug Sage and Eric Seideman remained to lead Gettysburg. Sophomore J.T. McCook tied a career-high with 14 saves and picked up a career-best 10 ground balls to lead a Gettysburg defense that has now limited 11 of its 12 opponents to a single-digit goal total this season. It was also the fourth time this year an opponent failed to score over five goals against the Bullets. Jeff Ocampo scored two goals for Ursinus (8-3, 3-2 CC) while Josh Baker made 13 saves.
Muhlenberg 8, McDaniel 5
ALLENTOWN, Pa. - Forgive Charlie Helm if his celebration was not quite up to par. After all, it’s been awhile since the senior on the Muhlenberg men’s lacrosse team has had to think about what to do after scoring a goal. So when his second-quarter shot snuck just between the McDaniel goalie and the left post, he simply pumped his fist and hugged three of his teammates. But that shot, the first point of Helm’s Mule career, did more than just snap his scoring drought; it also helped the Mules break their three-game losing streak with an 8-5 win over the Green Terror.
