Medaille edges Morrisville State men in 13-11 NEAC win
MORRISVILLE, N.Y. – Visiting Medaille College men’s lacrosse used a four goal opening quarter to edge host Morrisville State College 13-11 in North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) action Saturday afternoon in Morrisville.
The Mustangs drop to 3-8 overall, 3-3 in conference action; while Medaille improves
to 6-5 overal, 4-2 in the NEAC.
Louie Geswaldo (Lafayette, N.Y.) led the Morrisville State efforts, netting three goals and assisting another three, while Andrew Donoghue (Rochester, N.Y.) added two tallies of his own, assisting one.
Chris Fiore (Staten Island, N.Y.) recorded the loss in net, making eight stops.
Medaille had five tallies from scoring leader Brock Levick, while Scott Johnston added
four and assisted one in the Maverick victory. Goalkeeper, Sean Kettles, made seven stops between the pipes.
Morrisville State suffered a 4-1 opening quarter setback as Medaille posted the first four
tallies of the day, until a Geswaldo score with 1:03 remaining in the quarter put the Mustangs on the board.
The Mustangs outscored Medaille 10-9 over the final three quarters, but a crucial turnover with just under two minutes to go gave the Mavericks possession for the remainder of the contest and kept Morrisville State out of the offensive zone, as they were edged for the win.
Morrisville State returns to the field Wednesday, hosting Cazenovia College in the regular season finale at 7 p.m. in a game being played for the Wounded Warrior Project.
