SALISBURY, NC -- David Hodgins (Windor, Ont, CANADA) scored five goals to lead eighth-ranked Mars Hill to 17-6 victory over host Catawba in Deep South Conference men’s lacrosse action on Saturday afternoon at Shuford Stadium. The Lions improve to 4-0 overall and 1-0 in the DSC, while the Catawba Indians fall to 0-3 and 0-1.
Brent Hann (Fallston, MD) got the Lions going with a goal in the opening 40 seconds and Mars Hill never trailed. Hodgins started a three-goal spurt in the final 2:32 of the first quarter to give the Lions a 6-2 edge. Braden Artem (Acton, Ont, CANADA) scored twice for Catawba in the opening two minutes of the second quarter to trim the deficit to 6-4, but the Lions got a pair of goals from Danny Farmer (Calgary, Alb, CANADA) and one from Hodgins to take a 10-4 lead at the half.
Artem scored a goal and assisted on one by Marty Tuohy (Weymouth, MA/Weymouth HS) as Catawba cut the margin to 11-6 midway through the third quarter. That would be the final tally for Catawba as the Lions scored the final six goals, including three by Hodgins.
