The Game Story:
BRUNSWICK, Maine - The Bowdoin College men's lacrosse team scored their fewest goals in a game in nearly 25 years, losing to Amherst on Saturday 11-2. The Polar Bears fall to 8-3 (4-3 NESCAC) on the year, while the Jeffs- behind 14 saves from Cushing Donelan- improve to 8-4 (4-3).

Amherst scored the first two goals of the contest as Joaquin Walker and Mike Allison found the back of the net. Bowdoin got one back with just 14 seconds left in the first quarter as Alex Weaver cut the Jeffs' lead in half off an assist from Connor Fitzgerald. Amherst then went on a 7-0 run and posted stellar defense to cruise to the win.

Derek Cherney scored three goals for Amherst, while Walker, Allison and Graham Lake tallied two apiece. Donelan allowed just two goals, making 14 saves in the victory. Andy Nelson scored Bowdoin's second goal, while Grant White (57 minutes, 11 goals) and Charles Legg (3 minutes, 0 goals) split time in net for the Polar Bears.

Two goals in the lowest Bowdoin scoring effort since the first game of the 1980 season, when the Polar Bears scored one goal in a 15-1 loss to Adelphi.
