Haverford 9, Franklin & Marshall
A late goal from Henry Lanier broke a tie and pushed Haverford College's men's lacrosse team to a 9-8 Centennial Conference victory over visiting Franklin & Marshall College on Saturday afternoon at Swan Field. Circling from behind the net around F&M goalkeeper Cameron Setian's left side, Lanier fought off a defensive jam and launched a shot over Setian's shoulder with 3:22 to play to break an 8-8 tie and eventually give the Fords (4-7, 2-3 CC) their second conference victory of the year. F&M slips to 8-4 overall and 3-3 within the league after Saturday's loss. Senior goalie Joe Banno was another star for the Fords as he accounted for 13 saves in the game including four in the final period.

JS Duke (Fort Washington, Pa./Upper Dublin) led the Green Terror (7-6, 3-3 CC) with a goal and three assists. Mark Stratton paced the Bears (5-7, 1-4 CC) with two goals. With 5:40 to play, Duke, on a restart from behind the cage, found DJ Rickels (Forest Hill, Md./Boys Latin School of Maryland) on the left wing for the go-ahead goal and the defense withstood of flurry in the waning minutes for the team's third straight win.
