Marymount Tops Men's Lax

ARLINGTON, Va. - Host Marymount University used a big run in the middle of the contest to key a 13-6 non-league men's lacrosse victory over Shenandoah Wednesday evening.

After Shenandoah (5-7) took a 3-2 lead following a Sean Ohlhaver goal at 10:09 of the second, MU (7-4) reeled off 10 of the game's next 12 goals to take a 13-5 lead with 11:50 tp play.

Freshman Matt Justice finally halted the run by finishing off an Ohlhaver assist at 11:17 of the fourth, but the hole proved too deep.

Justice had the final goal of the contest by scoring a man-up goal with 40 seconds to play.

The contest was still close, 7-5, after Bryan Pope scored at 11:17 of the third, but the Saints erased any hope of a Hornets comeback by scoring the next six goals of the contest.

Shenandoah was held scoreless for exactly 15 minutes of game time.

Justice led the visitors with three goals while Ohlhaver added a goal and two assists.

Pope rounded out the multiple point scorers with a goal and an assist.

Marymount outshot SU 57-37, had a 40-35 advantage in groundballs and won 16 of 23 faceoffs.

Tyler Quinn made 18 saves.

The Hornets are now off until traveling to Bridgewater next Wednesday for an ODAC contest.
