Men's Lacrosse Falls In Final Non-Conference Game

Men's Lacrosse Falls In Final Non-Conference Game

Elmhurst, Ill. – The Alma College men's lacrosse team loss, 17-4, to the Elmhurst College Bluejays on Sunday at Elmhurst's Langhorst Field. Senior midfielder Jared Nycz (Buffalo, N.Y. / Iroquois) scored two goals and tallied one assist to the lead the Scots. Alma drops to 4-7 on the year while the Bluejays now hold a 4-4 record. 

How It Happened

  • Alma struggled to find the net from the start. Down 5-0 after one quarter of play the Scots finally got on the scoreboard after winning the face off and then a minute later freshman attacker Timothy Gearig (Vicksburg, Mich. / Vicksburg) striking one in from a difficult angle. 
  • Still in the second, now down 6-1, sophomore attacker Tommy Quinlan (Orland Park, Ill. / Carl J. Sandberg) took an illegal body check that led to a man up goal by Nycz. Gearig fed Nycz the ball at the point and the senior fired one past the keeper to cut the lead back to four. 
  • Nycz would net the next Alma score with just over 10 minutes remaining in the third quarter. The Scots would go over 22 minutes straight without a goal before junior attacker Connor Alley (Powell, Ohio / Worthington Kilbourne) scored with Nycz earning the assist. 

Notables 

  • Senior goalie Cameron Stelljes (Okemos, Mich. / Okemos) made seven saves in the 43 minutes he was in between the pipes today. With 418 career saves, Stelljes is 16 saves away from breaking the program's all-time record. 
  • Alley extended his season-long goal streak to 11 games with his score that came with less than two and half minutes left in the contest. 
  • 11 of Alma's 23 turnovers came in the first quarter.
