Men's Lacrosse Drops Road Contest to Lynchburg

LYNCHBURG, Va. – The Virginia Wesleyan University men's lacrosse team dropped its contest with Lynchburg, 23-4, Saturday afternoon on the road. With the loss, the Marlins go to 8-5 on the season and 3-3 in conference action. Lynchburg improves to 9-4 on the year (5-0 ODAC).

Things were looking up for the Marlins early on as they were the first team to record a goal. Thomas Potter was able to find a cutting Joey Rayman who slipped the ball past the netminder just 1:15 into the contest.

The Marlin offense would stall though, unable to register a goal until Jon Onia put one in at the 8:54 mark of the third quarter. That goal would halt a 10-0 run by the Hornets. Things continued to go Lynchburg's way as Virginia Wesleyan was only able to dole out two more goals before the end of the game.

Kyle Leeming played the brunt of the game, stopping a career-high 23 shots in goal. Philip Venanzi came in for the final 7:07 stopping two Hornet attempts.

Men's lacrosse returns to action again at 7 p.m. on Wednesday as the team hosts Washington and Lee for another ODAC battle underneath the lights of Birdsong Field.
