No. 16 Nittany Lions Grind Out One-Goal Victory at Villanova

"I give Villanova a lot of credit," Head coach Jeff Tambroni said. "You look at their record, which is one thing, but you look at them play on film and you see them play tonight and that's a very good lacrosse team, I thought they were very athletic defensively. I thought they stretched out a little bit on our guys. I thought their goalie played very well. I thought we missed a couple opportunities that would've probably made us feel a little bit better.

Forster extended his point streak to 22 games on Saturday night. During the streak, Forster has 63 points on 44 goals and 19 assists. LaCrosse's hat trick is the fourth of his career, three of which have come this season. Sturgis matched his career high with three assists on the night.
