The No. 7 Salisbury University men’s lacrosse team grabbed its second win of the season, defeating visiting Widener University on Monday afternoon 12-2 at Sea Gull Stadium.
Tim Taylor (Archbishop Ryan) and Tyler Schulte (Seneca) each scored for the Pride and Chris Treat (Haverford High) had 17 saves.
The Sea Gulls got going early, as junior Thomas Cirillo drove down the right side and planted a low shot into the cage at the 12:36 mark of the first quarter for a 1-0 lead.
After junior Jake Rotman ripped a shot from the left wing for SU’s second score, junior James Burton drove to the crease on the left side and slipped a shot between the keeper and the left pipe with 41 seconds left in the first quarter, giving the Sea Gulls a 3-0 lead to end the period.
Less than two minutes into the second, senior Mike Kane picked up a ground ball in Widener’s defensive end on a Pride turnover and found himself in front of the cage and one-on-one with the goalie, before netting his first of the game.
Widener scored on a man-up chance to get on the board, but two more SU goals to end the half gave the Sea Gulls a 6-1 lead at the break.
With 8:20 left, Kane found the cage again on another transition play, as freshman Chase Berquist found Kane all alone on the crease, before Berquist would score one of his own on the left side of the crease on a pass across the front of the keeper from senior Kyle Goss.
