King's College Shuts Out Alvernia

Reading, Pa. (Mar. 26, 2011) - King's College (3-4, 1-1) scored five goals in the second quarter to run out to a 7-0 halftime lead en route to a 12-0 win over Alvernia University (2-4, 1-1) Saturday afternoon in Middle Atlantic Conference men's lacrosse action at Schlager Memorial Field.

"It feels weird to say after a 12-0 loss, but I really feel like our defense played an outstanding game today," said Alvernia head coach Rich Carrington. "I'll bet they possessed the ball for over 50 of the 60 minutes today."

King's scored its first goal of the game just over a minute into the contest, but had trouble turning possession into points with just two goals in the first quarter.

The goals came a bit more frequently in the second quarter with the Monarchs finding the back of the net five times to put the lead up to seven by the break. Leading scorer Mike O'Brien scored three of the first five for the Monarchs and finished the day with four goals and two assists.

King's added two more in the third quarter and finished with three in the fourth.

Alvernia goalie Kevin Shupp (Cranford, N.J./Cranford) made 13 saves for the Crusaders. King's used a pair of goalies who combined to stop four.

Alvernia is scheduled for a non-conference game at Centenary College on Monday.
