Sophomore Sean Christman won a career-high 23 of the 26 faceoffs he took and matched a program record with 18 ground balls as part of the Boston University men's lacrosse team's 17-9 victory over Lafayette on Saturday afternoon at Nickerson Field. BU (7-3, 2-1 PL) scored six straight goals in the second quarter to take a 10-5 lead over Lafayette (4-6, 0-4 PL) into halftime. The Terriers then outscored Leopards, 4-0, in the third quarter en route to the victory. Christman bounced back from Tuesday's loss against Harvard with the best game of his career. He won 88.4% of his faceoffs on Saturday and matched Sam Talkow's program record for ground balls in a game that he set in 2015. Christman was a perfect 10-for-10 at the X in the second quarter and he followed that with a 4-of-4 performance in the third frame. He also scored his first goal of the season as part of his terrific Saturday. Sophomore Chris Gray recorded his third nine-point game of the season thanks to three goals and six assists. He became the first Division I player to record 60 points this season and leads the nation with 65 points (26g, 39a). He is just six points shy of matching his single-season program record of 71 points that he set last season. Senior Brendan Homire scored a career-best four goals for the second time in three games and added two assists for the first six-point effort of his career. Homire was 4-of-5 shooting on Saturday and also gathered two ground balls. Freshman Timmy Ley and senior James Burr also notched hat tricks on Saturday while freshman Jake Cates set a new career high with three points thanks to two goals and one assist. Sophomore Michael Doxie and junior Chase Levesque both found the back of the net, with Levesque also securing six ground balls and one caused turnover. Senior Michael Laviano and freshman Jack Collins each had one assist. Junior Reece Eddy notched five ground balls and joined Gray with a team-high two caused turnovers. Junior Joe McSorley made eight saves and allowed just eight of the Leopards' nine goals. Senior Sean McGovern and freshman Matt Garber both saw time in the fourth quarter. HOW IT HAPPENED Lafayette opened the scoring just 1:05 into the proceedings, but unassisted goals from Homire and Gray gave BU a 2-1 lead at 12:16. The Leopards evened the score at 8:40 of the first quarter, but Burr found the back of the net 40 seconds later to regain the lead. After Homire made it 4-2 to close the first quarter, Lafayette scored the first two goals of the second stanza to tie it at 4-4. Burr and Christman sparked a six-goal run for the Terriers, beginning with Burr's strike with 9:00 to play in the quarter. Christman then won the ensuing faceoff and bounced a shot past Ryan Ness (two saves) to make it 6-4. Ley scored his first goal of the day at 7:48, with Homire following just 29 seconds later with a man-up marker. Doxie notched his third goal of the season in transition after Gray forced a turnover to make it 9-4 before Cates got BU into double figures with 2:55 left in the half. Lafayette converted a man-up chance to send the game to halftime at 10-5, but BU scored just 20 seconds into the third quarter on an EMO when Cates fed Homire. Ley tallied the next two goals at 13:30 and 4:12 before Gray closed the quarter with his second strike of the game. The Leopards notched the first three goals of the fourth frame to cut the deficit to 15-8, but Levesque stopped the rally with 5:34 remaining in regulation. Freshman Blake Phillips blocked a shot and Levesque picked up the loose ball. He then charged up the field before uncorking a shot that beat Jake Floyd-Jones (four saves). Gray closed the Terriers' account just over a minute later, with Lafayette adding a late goal with 1:52 to play. GAME NOTES Burr extended his goal scoring streak to 27 games. He has notched 29 goals and added nine assists for 38 points this season. Gray has notched at least five points in each of the last nine games. BU was 2-of-3 on its man-up opportunities for the second straight game. The Terriers held Lafayette to 1-for-4 on its EMOs. BU went 24-of-29 at the faceoff X as a team. The Terriers won 41 ground balls to just 22 for the Leopards. This was the sixth straight win for BU over Lafayette. NEXT UP: LEHIGH The Terriers will hit the road for their next two games, beginning with a trip to No. 15 Lehigh on March 30.
