With the clock running out in the second session of overtime, freshman attack Kevin Wanke found an open spot behind the High Point defense and put his shot in the back of the net to lift the Lafayette men’s lacrosse team to a double-overtime victory over High Point on Wednesday evening, 10-9.

The Leopards were unfazed by two High Point goals in the final 1:29 of regulation to force the overtime session. They were able to hold the Panthers scoreless in the first four-minute overtime period and Wanke connected on his opportunity to snap a five-game Lafayette losing streak.

Sophomore attack Sonny Round led the Leopards’ offense with three goals and one assist, while freshman Morgan Westby (Episcopal Academy) added two goals and two assists, and sophomore Brian Bock (Spring-Ford) netted two scores.
