The second-ranked Salisbury University men’s lacrosse team dominated the SUNY Poly Wildcats, 30-3, in the opening round of the 2021 NCAA Division III Tournament on Saturday. Salisbury’s 30 goals set a new NCAA record for goals in a first or second-round tournament game.

With the victory, the Sea Gulls (14-1) advance to play at host Cabrini – a 21-11 winner over Grove City – Sunday at 2 p.m.

Salisbury’s offense was led by numerous Philly players. Pierre Armstrong (Hatboro-Horsham) had four goals and six assists, Griffin Moroney (Hun School-NH) had four goals and three assists, Cross Ferrara (Appoquinimink-DE) added three goals and an assist, Ryan Brown (Central Bucks East) had two goals and two assists and Charlie White (Hun School) had a goal.


Two back-to-back unassisted goals by Luke Nestor and Jarrett Bromwell gave the Sea Gulls the early 2-0 lead at the beginning of the first quarter.
A minute later, the Wildcats got on the board with a Shane Wyman goal.
Salisbury responded with five goals led by hat tricks from both Nestor and Bromwell to take the 7-1 lead over SUNY Poly in just the first quarter
The second quarter opened with three Moroney goals to extend the Sea Gulls lead to 10-1.
With nine minutes left in the half, Edward Rosaschi collected SUNY Poly’s second point on the day before Salisbury ended the half on a 6-0 run.
Salisbury continued its torrid pace in the second half and continued the scoring run in the third quarter. The 16-0 run was capped by a Brown goal at the 2:15 mark of the third on an assist by Armstrong.
A man-up goal from Shane Wyman ended the Salisbury flurry with 45 seconds left in the third quarter.
Four Sea Gull goals in the fourth quarter provided more than enough cushion in the game. White put the final nail in the coffin for SUNY Poly with an unassisted goal with seven minutes left in the game.
