Men's Lacrosse Loses Tight Game With Mars Hill


SALISBURY, NC -- Mars Hill defeated host Catawba 12-10 in a tightly contested men's lacrosse game on Saturday night at Shuford Stadium.  The Lions improve to 7-2, while the Catawba Indians fall to 3-6.

The teams battled even through the first two quarters before the Lions grabbed an 8-6 edge after three quarters.  Mars Hill closed the quarter with the final three goals, two from Kile Garrett, and added one early in the fourth for a 9-6 lead. 

Steven Ridolfo (Charlotte, NC/Providence HS/Gettysburg) got the Indians within two goals, but Mars Hill scored twice to lead 11-7 halfway through the final quarter.  The Indians made a late run but scoring three of the last four goals, but it wasn't enough to overcome the four-goal deficit. 

Garrett and Zach Tomkinson each scored three goals to pace Mars Hill.  Tomkinson had back-to-back goals to close the first half to bring the Lions even at 5-5 at the break.  Anthony Malcom had two goals and four assists, while Patrick McMahon made 11 saves in goal for Mars Hill.

John Scheich (Waxhaw, NC/Weddington HS) led Catawba with four goals and two assists.  Ridolfo tallied three times and had one helper.  Christian Klimczyk (Linthicum, MD/Cardinal Gibbons School) and Pete Wesselman (Charlotte, NC/Providence HS/Stevenson) shared a half in goal for the Indians and each made six saves.

Mars Hill held a 46-36 edge3 in shots and picked up two more ground balls, 24 to 32, than the Indians.  Catawba won 13 of 24 face-offs. 

Catawba will be at home next as it will host Florida Southern in a Deep South Conference game on Thursday afternoon at 4 p.m.
