|The Game Story:|
|HARTFORD, CT -- In a game moved played on the campus of Trinity College in Hartford, CT, the Williams menís lacrosse team (3-0, 2-0 NESCAC) scored the final four goals to rally past Conn College 7-4 and claim their third win of the year against no defeats.|
With the loss Conn College falls to 0-4 on the year and the Camels are 0-3 in NESCAC play.
"It was an exciting back and forth game against a well-coached team," noted Eph head coach George McCormack. "Conn is vastly improved from last year and in their last game they lost 10-9 at Middlebury so we knew it would be a battle. They played conservatively on defense for most of the game and then exerted pressure and it took us a while to adjust."
Due to the nature of a spring break contest at a neutral site complete details are not known at this time.
"They had us 4-3 in the third after it was tied at three all at the half and we managed to tie it before the quarter ended, but Iím not sure who scored," said McCormack. "I do know that Brian Morrissey made a great run and scored the go-ahead goal and that gave us a lot of energy and then we capitalized in transition twice to make the final 7-4. The Conn goalie [Mark Moran] was on fire today and played and outstanding game and we got a great game from Michael Gerbush in goal. Goals were hard to come by."
"I thought our defense really rose to the occasion when Conn scored their fourth goal and our transition offense took us the rest of the way," said McCormack. "Michael Vrla and Kevin Connolly really worked with their legs today Ė it seemed like we won every face-off. This was a great road win for us."
Next up for the Ephs is a home game on Wednesday at 4:30 pm vs. Keene State on Lamb Field.
