Men's Lacrosse Overcomes Costly Penalty And Rallies Past Rollins

SALISBURY, N.C. -- Host Catawba overcame a three-minute penalty for an illegal stick and rallied back to defeat Rollins 10-8 in men's lacrosse action on Monday afternoon at Shuford Stadium.  The Catawba Indians notch their first win to move to 1-2 on the season.  The Tars drop to 2-2.

Catawba was rolling early in the second quarter, going on top 5-1 at the 11:35 mark of the second quarter on a goal from Chase Scott (Charlotte, N.C./S. Mecklenburg HS).  Just two minutes later, Connor Kennedy (Weddington, N.C./Weddington HS/Tampa) was flagged for an illegal stick and Rollins seized the momentum.

The Tars scored three goals in a little over a minute of the unreleasable penalty to close within 5-4.  A penalty on Rollins helped Catawba kill off the remaining time, but the Tars put in two more before the half to lead 6-5 at the break.

Kennedy ended a six-goal run by the Tars with his goal at the 5:43 mark of the third quarter.  Zach LaFavre (Weymouth, Mass./Weymouth HS) pulled the Indians even just over a minute into the fourthr, but Jack Vonarb put Rollins back on top with 11:33 left.  Kennedy knotted the game at 8-8 just 25 seconds later.

Kennedy netted the winning goal with five minutes to play.  LaFavre added an insurance goal with 3:12 to go and Ryan Applegate (Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla./Ponte Vedra HS) came up with two saves in the final minute to keep that margin.

Kennedy made up for his costly penalty by scoring four goals and handing out two assists.  Ty Sellers (St. Johns, Fla/Bartram Trail HS) scored twice and produced two assists.  LaFavre had two goals and one assist.  Catawba continued its outstanding face-off work.  Daniel Rew (Forest Hill, Md./Bel Air HS) won 8-of-12, while Connor Eakes (Broomfield, Colo./Broomfield HS) notched seven wins in nine tries.

Rollins dominated the shot total with a 45-27 edge, including a 32-10 margin over the middle two quarters.  Applegate came up with 16 saves between the pipes for Catawba.  Vonarb led the visitors with four goals and two assists.

Catawba will host Mars Hill in a South Atlantic Conference game on Sunday at 1 p.m.
