LaFavre's Five Goals Pace Men's Lacrosse Past LMU


SALISBURY, N.C. -- Senior Zach LaFavre (Weymouth, Mass./Weymouth HS) scored five goals to help the Catawba College men’s lacrosse team defeat visiting Lincoln Memorial 11-7 in South Atlantic Conference action Saturday afternoon at Shuford Stadium.  With the win, the Catawba Indians improve to 3-4 overall and 1-2 in the SAC.  The Railsplitters fall to 1-6 and 0-4.

LaFavre opened the game on a goal with 8:03 left to go in the first quarter.  The Indians held that lead after a quarter and Jon Williams (Hillsborough, N.C./Northern HS) doubled the lead a minute into the second period, one-timing a pass from Chase Scott (Charlotte, N.C.) at the top of the box.  Over the next three minutes Catawba would add two more goals to extend the lead to 4-0.  Connor Kennedy scored the first with LaFavre tallying his second goal of the day shortly after.

Dylan Neisler got Lincoln Memorial on the board with 5:57 left to go in the half.  The Railsplitters got another goal in the closing seconds on a tally by Jared Courchene with just 16 ticks on the clock.  That cut Catawba’s lead to 4-2 at halftime.

A Justin Stewart goal in the opening minute of the third quarter pulled LMU within a goal, but Conner Kennedy (Weddington, N.C./Weddington HS/Tampa) got a two-goal lead back for the Indians less than a minute later. 

Kennedy’s goal swung the momentum back to Catawba as the Indians added two more goals by the end of the quarter to lead 7-3 heading to the final 15 minutes.  The teams alternated goals in the fourth quarter with LaFavre adding two more for his final total.

LaFavre also had an assist to go with his five goals for a six point day for the Indians and he also picked up eight ground balls.  Kennedy netted two goals with one assist, while Williams and Cook had a goal and two helpers.  Daniel Rew (Forest Hill, Md./Del Air HS) was perfect on 11 face-offs and collected eight ground balls.

Stewart had two goals and two assists for LMU.  Billy Kopsky and Ronny Paulino each had a goal and an assist.  Joe Medel had 17 saves in goal for the Railsplitters as Catawba held a 49-33 edge in shots.  Ryan Applegate (Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla./Ponte Vedra HS) made 10 saves for Catawba.

Catawba will continue South Atlantic Conference play on Wednesday as they host Wingate University at 7:00 p.m.
