Elmira Uses 4th-Quarter Run to Down Shenandoah

WINCHESTER, Va. - Visiting Elmira College used a fourth quarter run to down Shenandoah University 12-8 in non-conference men's lacrosse action Sunday afternoon.

With the Hornets (0-6) cutting their deficit to just one, on a Courtney Ledden to Chris Frazier man-up goal at 13:39 of the fourth, Elmira (2-0) reeled off the game's next four goals.

David Evert, who led all scorers with six goals, finished off a Jackson Correia feed with 11:00 remaining to give the Soaring Eagles a two-goal margin.

The goal also held up as the eventual game-winning tally.

After EC was able to expand its lead to 12-7 by the 4:57 mark, Mac Hedrick scored off of a David Estoclet pass to bring Shenandoah within four.

SU, which dominated at the faceoff 'x', was able to win the ensuing draw, but could not get any closer.

The game was close throughout, with Shenandoah scoring the first two goals of the contest before Elmira answered with a five-goal run from the 3:19 mark of the first until the 6:42 mark of the second.

Bryan Pope, who had a co-team-high three points for SU on two goals and one assist, fed Frazier with 1:21 remaining in the second to make it 5-3 just prior to the halftime gun.

This goal started a 3-0 Shenandoah run that allowed the Hornets to tie it at 5-5, but EC came back with a 3-0 run of its own to seize the lead for good.

Frazier and Pope both had two goals and one assist while Mac Hedrick added two goals.

SU outshot its visitors 42-39, scooped up 39 of 70 groundballs and won 16 of 23 faceoffs.

Sean Mack was 15 of 21 at the 'x' and had eight groundballs.

Shenandoah hosts Lebanon Valley on Wednesday at 4:00 in a non-league contest.
