Gubei Field — Midfielder Alex Spang (14G) and attackman Sean Pearce (13G, 2A) finished with a combined 27 goals as the Beavers easily routed the outmanned Cougars in a 42-24 drubbing to begin the Spring 2016 lacrosse season.
Along with Spang and Pearce, midfielders Michael Zanner (4G,1A), Jake Goodwin (3G, 1A) and defenseman James Oliver (4G) also contributed multiple goals, providing the Beavers with a cushy, 19-goal lead at the half (24-5).
Despite the Beavers’ insurmountable first-half lead, the Cougars would find a silver lining in their second half performance. Midfielder Mark Collins (8G, 2A) and attackman Mike Elefante (6G) would lead the Cougars’ scoring drive with over a dozen goals late in the game, winning the second half against the Beavers, 19-18. The Cougars hope to carry this momentum into next week’s game and notch their first win of the season.
