Marywood Ends Spring Break Trip with Win at Ferrum

Ferrum, VA Nick Parks and Marcus Janda each recorded hat-tricks to help lead Marywood University to a 10-4 victory at Ferrum College in non-conference men's lacrosse action on Saturday afternoon. The Pacers improve to 3-1 on the season with the win while the loss drops the Panthers' record to 1-3.

Following a scoreless first quarter, William Roerden gave Marywood a 1-0 lead 1:22 into the second quarter after collecting a groundball after Gregory Nester's shot hit the post and beating Ferrum goalie Josh Liptak. Roerden doubled the Pacers' lead at the 9:31 mark with an unassisted goal and Parks and Jamie Beagen each scored within 49 seconds to stretch Marywood's lead to 4-0.

Andrew Senft and Kyle Downey both scored unassisted goals to cut the Panthers' deficit in half before Janda scored off of a Joe LaBella assist with 56 seconds remaining in the period to give the Pacers a 5-2 lead at halftime.

Janda netted his second tally of the contest with 11:15 to play in the third quarter and Beagen did the same on a man-up opportunity to stretch Marywood's lead to 7-2 with 9:06 remaining in the period.

The Pacers extended their advantage to 8-2 just 15 seconds into the fourth quarter when Janda completed his hat-trick by scoring after collecting a pass from Parks. Senft's second goal of the game with 9:25 to play brought Ferrum back to within five.

However, Parks would net his second marker of the afternoon off a Beagen helper with the Pacers a man-up with eight minutes remaining and then completed his hat-trick by scoring with 2:19 to play. Senft netted a hat-trick of his own by scoring 25 seconds later to round out the scoring for Ferrum.

Marywood held a 3832 advantage in shots for the game while the Panthers held a slim, 30-29 edge in groundballs. Parks led all scorers with three goals and two assists while Janda (3 goals), Roerden (2 goals, 1 assist), and Beagen (2 goals, 1 assist) each had multi-point games for Marywood.

Jesse Habich made 15 saves to pick up his third win of the season for the Pacers while Liptak made 11 stops while taking the loss.

Marywood returns to action next Saturday when they host Penn State Abington in a non-conference game scheduled to face-off at 1:00 p.m. in Scranton.
