The Penn State men’s lacrosse team took down the visiting Cleveland State Viking, 16-5, in the Nittany Lions’ final nonconference game of the season on Saturday afternoon at Panzer Stadium.

Penn State, 6-3 on the year, used a well-rounded offensive performance on Saturday afternoon to take down the Vikings as 10 different Nittany Lions’ were able to find the back of the cage.

Redshirt sophomore Dylan Foulds, who combined for eight goals over his last two games, put up a team-high four goals, including two man-up. The attackman also added an assist to his stat line.

Junior Nick Spillane served as the distributor on the afternoon, racking up four assists, while finding the back of the net for two goals of his own. He finished with a team-best six points and added one caused turnover to his stat line.

Senior Tanner Peck (Avon Grove) put together the first multi-goal game of his career as he was able to score on two occasions, both unassisted on roll dodge goals.

Sophomore Mac O’Keefe found the cage twice in the game, including a halftime buzzer beater. He also added an assist, two ground balls, and a caused turnover.

The Lions also got goals from Nick Cardile (Avon Grove), Matt Donnelly (Clearview Regional-NJ), Cole Willard, Brian Townsend and Robby Black. Cardile’s goal was the first of his career. Junior Ryan Keenan and senior Tripp Traynor (Malvern Prep) added assists for Penn State.

Traynor and Cardile both finished the game with two caused turnovers to lead the team, while Traynor, a short stick defensive middie, scooped up three ground balls, and Cardile, a long-stick middie, added two.

Bucknell 12, Loyola 11

The visiting Bison knocked off No. 6 Loyola at the Ridley Athletic Complex.

The Bison (6-3, 4-1 Patriot League) handed the two-time defending champion Greyhounds (5-3, 3-1 Patriot League) their first Patriot League loss of the season by building a four-goal advantage and then holding off a furious comeback attempt in the final six minutes of regulation.

After Kevin Lindley completed a hat trick with 5:47 on the clock to snap Bucknell’s 4-0 run, Loyola netted two goals in a 31-second span to make it a 12-11 game with 3:03 left to play. While Jarett Witzal won the resulting face-off to get the Bison the ball back, Jacob Stover denied a Connor O’Hara bid with 2:11 remaining to give the Greyhounds a chance to send the game into overtime.

Tommy Sopko (Conestoga) scored once for the Bison.

Boston U. 12, Lafayette 8

Sean Christman (Malvern Prep) won 14 of 23 faceoffs and fellow freshman Malcolm Glendinning (Springside Chestnut Hill Academy) had six groundballs and a caused turnover as BU (5-5, 1-3) toppled the Leopards (2-8, 0-5) in the Patriot League.

Conor Walters had three goals and three assists for Lafayette.

Cornell 20, Penn 13

Up 10-8 at halftime and 11-9 early in the third quarter, the No. 15 Quakers were overwhelmed by a potent Cornell attack after that and fell to the Big Red at Penn Park.

Down, 11-9, Cornell scored five goals in the final eight minutes of the third quarter to take a 14-11 lead into the final period. Penn got one of those goals back 1:51 into the fourth, and made it a 16-13 game with 5:20 left. However, the Quakers were chasing the game at that point and Cornell took advantage of some open goals to pop home the game’s final four goals and secure the victory.

Simon Mathias had five points for the Quakers, scoring four goals and dishing off an assist. Tyler Dunn scored three times and had an assist, while Kevin McGeary (Malvern Prep) and Adam Goldner (Malvern Prep) both scored twice. At the other end, Reed Junkin had 10 saves in the Penn goal as Cornell outshot Penn on the day, 46-24. The Big Red also held the advantage on the face-off X, 21-15.

Connor Keating (Haverford School) had seven groundballs and a caused turnover for Penn.

Rutgers 15, Delaware 10

An 8-2 run in the second half, which included a hat trick from sophomore Kieran Mullins during the span, propelled the No. 11 Scarlet Knights to a victory over the visiting Fighting Blue Hens.

The win improved the Scarlet Knights to 7-3 in their final nonconference contest as they gear up for Big Ten play starting next weekend. Delaware, meanwhile, dropped its fifth-straight contest to fall to 3-5 on the year.

Dean DiSimone (St. Augustine Prep) had three goals and an assist and Charlie Kitchen (St. Augustine Prep) added three more for the Hens.
