No. 4 York College rebounds from loss with easy win


The York College men's lacrosse team rebounded from Friday's disappointing loss at No. 20 Stevenson with a convincing 14-6 Capital Athletic Conference win over Southern Virginia on a brisk Saturday in York.

The Spartans improve to 13-2 overall and 6-0 in the CAC while the Knights fall to 5-9 overall and 2-6 in the conference.

Andrew Gamble (goal, three 3 assists), Hunter Davis (two goals), Josh Kluver (goal, two caused turnovers, three ground balls), Joey Fiorino (four ground balls), Joe Lomady (two goals, two ground balls), Matt Whitcher (two goals), Dillon Hannah (goal, assist), and Thomas Pfeifer (goal, assist) were York's stat leaders. Caleb Abney and James Anderson each had five saves for York.

York College's Matt Whitcher, seen here being pushed out of bounds earlier this season in a win vs. Gettysburg, had two goals Saturday for the Spartans.

York is averaging 14.5 goals per game during conference play as they have outscored their opponents by a total of 87-39.

The Spartans starting defense held the second leading scorer in the CAC, Casey Rich, to just one goal in the first 45 minutes of the game. Rich got three goals in the final 15 minutes against the Spartans defensive reserves.

York will next face a big challenge on Wednesday when they host top ranked Salisbury University in a showdown of the two remaining unbeaten teams in the conference. First face off at Kinsley Field is set for 4 p.m.
