SALEM, VA--The Roanoke College men^̉s lacrosse team got goals from 20 different players in a 30-5 win over Guilford College on Saturday afternoon in Salem, VA. The Maroons improve to 9-4 overall on the season and 4-2 in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference. Guilford falls to 5-8 and 0-5 in ODAC action.

The Maroons opened the scoring in the contest on a goal from Brian Gallagher (Westfield, NJ/Westfield) just over two minutes into the game. The Quakers quickly tied the score at one on a goal from leading scorer Josh Miller, but the Maroons would score the next eight goals of the period to take a 9-1 lead after one. The second quarter was all Roanoke, with the host team outscoring the Quakers 10-0 to take a 19-1 lead at the break.

The Maroons slowed the pace down in the second half of play and in the third period played the Quakers to a 2-2 tie. With the Roanoke starters on the bench in the fourth, the Maroons outscored the Quakers 9-2 over the final 15 minutes of play.
