Men's Lacrosse Edged By Single Goal at Coker
HARTSVILLE, S.C. -- Coker scored with 4:23 remaining to grab an 8-7 win over visiting Catawba in South Atlantic Conference men's lacrosse action on Wednesday night at the Coker Athletic Field. The Cobras improve to 3-7 overall and 2-2 in the SAC, while the Catawba Indians fall to 3-6 and 2-3.
Catawba led 7-5 after Cole Fanzo (Crofton, Md./S. River) scored with 14:13 remaining in the final quarter, but Coker put home the final three goals to take the win. Mike Martiello cut the margin to 7-6 with 12:10 to go and Shane Wilson scored the final two to win it for the Cobras. His tying goal came just 17 seconds after Martiello's tally.
After Wilson made it 8-7 with 4:23 left the team's traded turnovers until Catawba drew an extra-man opportunity with a minute to play. The Indians would turn the ball over just before the 30-second penalty expired. Julian Maxey (Lewisville, N.C./W. Forsyth) forced a Cobra turnover in the dying seconds, but Fanzo's last-second shot was saved.
Catawba scored the quickest goal in school history right off the face-off that was won by Connor Eakes (Broomfield, Colo./Broomfield). Josh Reedy (Lake Mary, Fla./Lake Mary) fed Fanzo, who tallied just four seconds into the game. Coker would regroup and scored three straight and held a 3-2 edge after a quarter.
The Indians scored the only two goals in the second quarter. Liam Lynch (Marietta, Ga./Pope) tied it at the 3:54 mark and Jack Williams (Raleigh, N.C./Broughton) whistled one in from the top of the offensive box as time expired in the half to put Catawba on top 4-3.
Coker scored two goals in the opening five minutes of the second, but Connor Kennedy (Weddington, N.C./Weddington/Tampa) got those back as he scored at 7:45 and 1:16 of the period to put the Indians ahead 6-5. Fanzo then tallied to make it 7-5 before Coker rallied back to win on Wilson's fifth goal of the game.
Fanzo and Kennedy each had a pair of goals for Catawba. Lynch had a goal and two helpers, while Ryan Applegate (Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla./Ponte Vedra) had seven saves. Eakes, who entered the game ranked second in the nation with a .742 face-off win percentage, won 17 of 18 against the Cobras.
Catawba heads to Wingate on Saturday for a 3:00 pm game with the Bulldogs.
