The Game Story:
MANHASSET, NY - In a high school homecoming game for GU's top point producer and attackman Sean Denihan (Manhasset, NY/Manhasset) Georgetown's No. 5 ranked men's lacrosse team defeated Vermont 9-1 at Manhasset High School in Manhasset, New York.

The first quarter was an evenly played affair as both teams could not find the back of the net and Vermont held a slight 8 to 7 shot advantage.
