Childs Nets Nine as Trine Runs Past Southwestern

GEORGETOWN, Texas - From the start it was billed as historic. Saturday's Trine-Southwestern game was the first college lacrosse game ever played in the Lone Star State. Certainly for Cory Childs (Savage, Minn./Prior Lake) it was.

Childs impact was as big as Texas. The Thunder attackman blasted nine goals and dished out three assists to lead Trine to a 19-6 win. Trine is now 2-1.

Andrew Laycock (Ann Arbor, Mich./Ann Arbor), Sean Hitz (Chicago, Ill./St. Rita) and Eric Thompson (Cumberland, Maine/Greely) each chipped in with two goals. Hitz recorded three assists. Alex Gregg (Zionsville, Ind./Zionsville)recorded seven saves. Jeff Dombek (St. Louis, Mo./CBC) had three saves.

For the game, the Thunder fired 48 shots, while the host Pirates had 22. Trine tallied 70 ground balls, 24 of 27 clears, won 15 of 24 face-offs and scored on four of seven extra-man opportunities.

With the game tied at 2-2 late in the first period, Trine reeled off 10 straight goals to cruise to the win.

Trine is back in action Saturday hosting Midwest Lacrosse League rival Mount Saint Joseph at Shive Field at 1:00 p.m.
