The No. 8-ranked University of Pennsylvania men’s lacrosse team (6-3, 4-0 Ivy) won its sixth consecutive game, besting Brown, 16-9.

Junior Adam Goldner (Mavern Prep) led all players with six goals and seven points – setting career-highs in both categories. Freshman Sam Handley continued his torrid play, totaling six points on two goals and four assists.

Eight different players scored for the Quakers, who took a season-high 61 shots and only trailed for 42 total seconds during the game.

Delaware 15, Drexel 13

Five different Blue Hens had multi-goal performances to help the Blue Hens pick up their fifth road win of the season, the highest in a single season by Delaware since 2010.

With a 9-2 overall record (2-0 in CAA), the Blue Hens are off to their best start since 2006.

Senior captain Joe Eisele (St. Augustine Prep) led the way with a career-best five goals and one assist, while junior Charlie Kitchen (St. Augustine Prep) added three goals and a career-high tying four assists. Kitchen has now scored in 28 straight games, which is the second-longest streak in the country and third-longest in school history. Bryce Reid (Avon Grove), Tye Kurtz and Clay Miller all had two goals in the win.

Defensively, Matt DeLuca had 12 saves in the victory. He moved into ninth-place all-time in program history and now sits at 447 in his junior season. He has had double-digit saves in all 11 games this spring. Austin Haynes (Moorestown), Owen Grant, Jason Seiter and Ryan Shaw all had two caused turnovers to help a defensive effort that forced Drexel into 17 turnovers on the afternoon.

Reid Bowering had five goals and an assist for the Dragons (4-6, 0-2).

Villanova 12, Denver 11

In front of a sold-out crowd at Peter Barton Stadium in Denver the Wildcats defeated the No. 10 Pioneers. This was Denver’s first loss in conference play since joining the BIG EAST five years ago.

Freshman goalkeeper Will Vitton had six saves in the opening quarter and finished with 19 on the day. Keegan Khan had three goals and two assists for the ‘Cats (7-4, 2-0).

St. Joe’s 12, Hobart 11 (OT)

In a wild finish in front of a packed crowd, sophomore attackman Matt Tufano scored the game-winning goal just 43 seconds into overtime to lead the Hawks to a victory over #20 Hobart on Sweeney Field. With the Northeast Conference win, the Hawks improve to 6-5 overall (2-1 NEC) while the Statesmen fall to 8-3 (2-1 NEC).

Sophomore goalkeeper Mike Adler made a career-high 20 saves, including nine in the second quarter alone and four in the fourth.
