MEN’S LACROSSE DOWNS GARNET

The women did it yesterday, and the men did it today.

With a 9-6 victory over Swarthmore, the Muhlenberg men’s lacrosse team earned its first conference victory of the season.

“We’ve been struggling for the past three games against the better part of the

conference, so it feels good to get rolling,” said junior Tim Dwyre.

And get rolling they did. The Mules (5-3, 1-3) opened the game with three goals scored by three different players, spanning into the 12:41 mark of the second quarter. Senior Sean Toohill was the first player to score, and he finished the game with his fourth hat trick of the season on three goals and two assists.

Swarthmore (3-3, 2-2) cut the lead to 3-2 by halftime, but the Mules opened the third quarter the same way they opened the game: with three more goals scored by three different players. Sophomore Andrew Lolley scored the first of his two goals in that stretch.

In the fourth quarter, the Garnet cut into the lead once again, this time making it 8-6 with 3:14 to go. Muhlenberg’s Dwyre ended the threat when he scored his first goal of the season in the final minutes to seal the win.

“I have been playing defense all year, so it feels good to get a chance to score,” Dwyre said.

Sophomore Dan Dugan won seven of 10 faceoff opportunities for the Mules, and on defense, senior Kyle Hart led the team with seven ground balls, becoming the program’s all-time leader with 163 ground balls.

In goal, freshman Andrew Bell played a solid game, making seven saves and holding the Garnet scoreless until the 6:14 mark of the second quarter.

“He’s been big for us this whole year, coming in as a freshman and the only goalie,” Dwyre said. “We’re doing the best we can on defense to keep the opposing guys off him, and he’s doing a good job keeping the ball out of the goal.”
