It was déjà vu all over again for Paul Werner.

For the second year in a row, the senior midfielder scored an overtime game-winner in the second round of the NCAA Division III Men’s Lacrosse Tournament, lifting fifth-ranked Gettysburg to a thrilling 11-10 victory over No. 15 Cabrini College on Saturday at Shirk Field at Musselman Stadium.

The Bullets (16-2), who three times rallied from a two-goal deficit, won their 14th game in a row and advance to the quarterfinal round to face York (Pa.) College on Wednesday at a time and location to be announced. York defeated No. 20 Washington and Lee University 15-5 on Saturday.

Germantown Academy graduate and senior goalie Jacob Adoni was again a standout for Gettysburg with 14 saves.

Freshmen Jordan Krug (Marlton, N.J./Cherokee) and Timmy Brooks (Haverford School) scored three goals each, while fellow rookie Matt LoParo added three assists for Cabrini.

Werner also notched the game-winner in the second overtime Gettysburg’s 10-9 second-round win over Ursinus last season. His goal was doubly sweet, as it also marked his 100th career point. He tied a career-high with four goals and handed out an assist, tying another career-high with five points.

Senior Mike Distler added three goals, including a behind-the-back tally that sparked a 4-1 game-ending run for the Bullets.
