ORLANDO, FL - The Amherst College menís lacrosse team opened its season with a 13-4 rout over non-conference foe Kenyon College in Orlando, Florida on Tuesday. Amherst first-year attackman Derek Cherney (Chappaqua, NY) paced the Jeffs with three goals and an assist, while junior attackman Andrew Syfu (Hobart, IN) netted two goals and dished out three assists, and junior netminder Cushing Donelan (Noroton, CT) collected 18 saves.
