Men's Lacrosse Falls at Saint Leo


SAINT LEO, FL -- Host Saint Leo outscored Catawba 5-0 in third quarter and went on to post a 12-8 victory in Deep South Conference men's lacrosse action on Wednesday night at University Turf Stadium.  The Lions improve to 2-3 overall and 3-1 in the DSC, while the Catawba Indians fall to 2-3 and 0-2.

Catawba led 4-3 at the break, but the Lions tied it just over a minute in to the second half on a goal by Chad Marino.  Matt Obermeyer scored three times in the quarter and Marino added another in the 5-0 frame. 

Down 9-4 in the fourth, Catawba reeled off three straight goals, two from John Scheich (Waxhaw, NC/Weddington HS) to pull within 9-7 with 7:09 to play.  Saint Leo responded with three goals of its own to go on top 12-7 with four minutes left.

Matt Symes (Coquitlam, BC, CANADA/Centennial HS) joined Scheich with two goals for Catawba.  The Indians fired 47 shots at the Lions, but only 23 were on goal.  Pete Wesselman (Charlotte, NC/Providence HS/Stevenson) made eight saves for the Indians.

Obermeyer and Marino each tallied three times for the Lions.  Robert Hutchinson had two goals, while Kevin Hutchinson had a goal and four assists.  Dave Moore stopped 15 shots in goal. 

Catawba will stay in Florida and next take on Tampa, Saturday afternoon at 1 p.m.
