Every conference win is an achievement in itself. However, some conference victories are truly Landmark accomplishments. Saturday’s win over Catholic by the men’s lacrosse team is an example of such a feat.
Susquehanna’s 7-4 handling of Catholic not only marked the program’s first ever win over the Cardinals, but also clinched the third seed in an upcoming Landmark Conference Tournament.
The physical and gritty performance by the Crusaders pushed Susquehanna’s record to 10-5.
Senior midfielder Tylere Fritts knew how big the result was for the team’s post-season goals.
Fritts said, “It was an amazing feeling to finally beat Catholic, but an even better feeling knowing that this team would be playing one more game together.”
As a team, Susquehanna out-shot Catholic 28-17 and took nine of 15 face-offs.
In addition, Susquehanna allowed Catholic to capitalize on only one of its six extra-man opportunities.
The Crusaders received solid performances from multiple players. Freshman Connor Moran scored two goals and pocketed three assists. Also helping carry the offensive scoring load was junior Austen Lein and Fritts. Both scored two goals apiece.
Anchoring the Crusaders was senior goalie Will Torrence. Torrence put together a solid afternoon performance that included 11 saves and two scoreless quarters while only conceding four goals.
The Crusaders, who have now won their last two games, will not have to wait to long for an opportunity to add onto their winning streak.
Susquehanna will be hosting Albright at 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 27, in their regular season finale. Seniors will be honored at the game as well.
