Tuesday evening’s Centennial Conference men’s lacrosse game at Swan Field turned on a first-period burst from host Haverford College as the Fords netted the game’s only unanswered string of goals during a span of less than four minutes to build an advantage that would hold up in a 7-5 victory over Muhlenberg College.

Haverford (5-6, 2-3 CC) picked up consecutive goals from Jake Maldonado, Christian Clay (Lawrenceville School) and Henry Millson over a 3 minute, 49 second span in the first period, then settled for exchanging goals with the Mules (6-6, 2-3) the rest of the way.

Jack Bodine and Clay each netted a pair of goals for the Haverford attack while Scott Chanelli, who is sixth in the NCAA in caused turnovers per game (3.60), was a force in the defensive end with four caused turnovers and seven ground balls.

Muhlenberg’s Jack Reilly led the visitor’s offense with a pair of goals and two assists for a game-high four points. Schlauch took the loss in goal despite coming up with 12 saves for the Mules.

Gwynedd Mercy 16, Immaculata 8

A few team records were set as Gwynedd-Mercy took out Immaculata for its fourth win in a row.
