Monarchs Reign Over Shenandoah in Non-League Contest

WILKES-BARRE, Pa. - Host King's College (Pa.) pulled away from Shenandoah University to win 17-5 in a non-league men's lacrosse contest Wednesday afternoon.

The Monarchs (1-0) broke open a tie game by scoring seven of the eight goals tallied in the second period over the Hornets (0-2).

The run was actually nine unanswered, as Lenny Fox got things started with an unassisted tally at 7:34. Fox scored again just over two minutes later, and by the time Matt Hendrickson scored an EMO goal for SU with 5:30 to play in the third, King's held an 11-3 lead.

The Monarchs kept up the pressure after Henderickson's tally, scoring six straight to lead 17-3 with just over six minutes to play.

Kevin Totaro and Joe Avveduti converted off of feeds from P.J. Cooper and Sean Mack, respectively, in the final six minutes to provide the final margin.

Totaro had the Hornets first goal and freshman David Estoclet, off of a Totaro assist, had the final SU tally in the second quarter before King's started its run.

KC outshot Shenandoah 49-24 and held a 45-36 advantage in groundballs. The Hornets won 13 of the game's 25 faceoffs and saw three of their keepers combine for 18 saves. Freshman starter Andrew Fleischmann had 15 of those in the first 45 minutes.

Shenandoah has its home opener on Saturday at 1:00 against Keuka (N.Y.).
