Men's Lax Wins Overtime Thriller

Men's Lax Wins Overtime Thriller

WINCHESTER, Va. The Shenandoah University men's lacrosse team earned its first overtime victory of the Marshall Era with a 9-8 non-league triumph over Hood College Saturday afternoon.

Shenandoah (3-2), which led 6-3 midway through the third quarter, needed to rally for the win as Hood (1-1) roared back into the contest.

The Blazers, who dominated at the faceoff 'x', winning 15 of 21 draws on the day, used this possession advantage to sandwich a five-goal run around the third quarter gun to take an 8-6 lead with 9:42 to play.

SU began its comeback with a Drew Brooks tally at 7:47 before junior Aaron Paul knotted the game at 8-8 with an unassisted goal 49 seconds before the end of regulation.

Randolph Clark, who had won 15 of 17 draws to this point for HC, lost the ensuing faceoff to the Hornets' Tilghman Sanders, but Shenandoah was unable to get off a shot before the end of the fourth.

Hood won the opening faceoff of the sudden victory OT but turned it over its defensive end, setting SU up with possession.

Freshman Frank Tejera found Terrance Mulvey on the right wing and Mulvey ripped a bounce shot past Blazers keeper John Martin for the game winner.

The assist was the third of the game for Tejera.

Brooks had four goals for the victors.

Shenandoah outshot its visitors 36-35 with Hood holding a 32-28 advantage in groundballs.

Ben Judy had 14 saves, including 11 in the first half, to earn the win.

SU hosts another SU, Susquehanna, on Thursday at 4:00.
