CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Catawba fell to host Queens 21-12 in an opening round game of the South Atlantic Conference Men’s Lacrosse Tournament on Wednesday at Dickson Field. The fourth-seeded Royals improve to 9-6 and advance to a Friday semifinal. The Catawba Indians, seeded fifth, end their season at 6-9.

After a quick Royals tally in the second, Cole Fanzo pulled the Indians within 5-2, but Queens followed with four goals and a 9-2 edge.
Justin Warnock scored consecutive goals for Catawba and Liam Lynch added another in the final 30 seconds of the half, but Queens still had an 11-5 lead at the break. That lead grew to 14-5 before the second delay early in the third quarter. Joe Barber and Connor Eakes closed the margin to 14-7 before the Royals added three more goals for a 17-7 edge with 10 minutes left.
Kevin Berry led Queens with four goals and an assist. Laszlo Henning put in three goals. Queens out-shot Catawba 61-38.
