The men’s lacrosse team got off to a rocky start, but the team remains in good spirits.
Over spring break, the Cav’s played two games. The first game against Western Maryland College was a defeat; however, the team demonstrated that they have what it takes to make the remainder of the season a success.
“Even though we suffered two loses, we’ve learned to play in close games against good teams,” Tom Lemieux, junior, said. The rest of the team also feels that once they perfect their fundamentals on the field the season will prosper with more wins.
The second game the team played over spring break was Kean University,Union, N.J. The Cavaliers walked away with a victory. The final score was 5 to 3.”Kean was our worst showing thus far. It can only get better from here,” said junior Adam Shaff.
The Cav’s may have defeated Kean, however, they were not happy with their playing skills. “After we are fundamentally sound, our level of play will dramatically rise,” said senior Josh Selchert.
The men’s lacrosse team continues to practice hard and work on perfecting their playing skills in order to make the rest of the season a success.
“We need to put our past games behind us and play as a team,” Matt Clements, senior, said.
With the determination and dedication of the players along with head-coach Stephen Colfer, both look forward to competing in the PAC championship games this season.
The Cavaliers will be playing today at home against the Eastern Eagles at 4p.m. and Sat., at home against Villa Julie College at 1p.m.
