The 10th-ranked York College men's lacrosse team will head back to the Capital Athletic Conference title game for the second time in program history following a 13-8 win at home against Christopher Newport on Saturday in the CAC Tournament semifinal round.
York's stat leaders were: Hunter Davis (two goals, three assists), Dillon Hannah (three goals), Josh Kluver (three caused turnovers) and Billy Sasso (eight ground balls, 9-for-16 on face-offs). Davis tied his career-high with five points and set a new career-high with three assists as he eclipsed the 40-point mark for the season.
York goalie Caleb Abney had 13 saves. He now has 50 wins for his career.
The Spartans advance to the CAC Championship Game for the second time in program history and the second time in the last three seasons. The championship game will be a rematch from 2014 as Salisbury will once again host the Spartans. The title game is Saturday at Salisbury.
"I thought our seniors played really well today, especially Andrew Gamble who forced himself into tough positions to create quality looks and made himself hard to defend. JoJo Joseph played so fast today in the middle and never let Christopher Newport get comfortable defensively, which opened things up for us late in the fourth quarter because CNU was gassed. In all, I thought there were a number of huge plays made by our older guys that shifted the momentum in our favor. We're excited to get this one and move on to the championship game" said Spartan head coach Brandon Childs
