The men’s lacrosse team squared off against Commonwealth Coast Conference opponent Western New England, and it did not go as planned for the Colonels.
The Golden Bears came out of the gates swinging, opening the scoring within the first two minutes of the game. The momentum seemed to be on WNE’s side.
Curry then went on an offensive run, scoring a pair of goals in the last minute of the opening period. The charge was led by two dynamic Colonel Sophomores in Dakota Sanders and Devin Newell. Despite evening the score, it was not shifting any momentum towards the Purple and White.
Curry was shut out the entire second period and struggled defensively. Frank Medlicott registered his third goal of the game for the Golden Bears, sending the score at halftime to 6-2.
Once the faceoff started the second half, WNE did not look back and practically owned the final two frames.
Sophomore Wade Prajer and junior Matt Serra netted goals in the last two quarters respectively before the final horn sent the 10-4 score final. It was certainly a sloppy performance from the Colonels, and one to move on from.
“Transitionally we have to play a little bit better all over the field, and we need to push the issue a little bit more on the offensive end,” said Head Coach Murphy after the game.
However, Freshman Keyshawn Evans is still very optimistic about this team’s chances moving forward, saying; “We could definitely work on some things, but we’ll be ready to get back at it Saturday against Wentworth.”
That CCC Matchup is scheduled to start at 3 p.m. at the Walter M. Katz Field. The Leopards bring their 5-5 (1-3) record to Curry, currently owning a three-game losing streak, to compare to the Colonels’ 6-5 (2-2) record on the season.
