Goucher Rolls Past W&J in Landmark Game

BALTIMORE, Md. -- Goucher scored seven times during the second quarter to break the game open and defeat Washington & Jefferson 18-2 Saturday in a Landmark Conference men's lacrosse game at Beldon Field.

The Gophers (3-5, 1-1) outshot the Presidents (4-6, 0-2) by a 62-15 margin, used a 58-22 advantage in ground balls and won 19 of 23 faceoffs.

Goucher opened a 1-0 lead on Owen Demmerley's goal just over a minute in, but W&J responded with a goal from Casey Smallwood, assisted by Kyle Heinig, 90 seconds later.

The Gophers followed with four consecutive goals before John Bursch netted an extra-man goal to stop the GC run late in the opening quarter.

The rest of the game was dominated by Goucher as the Gophers scored the final 13 goals, seven of which came during a 10-minute stretch in the second quarter. Dylan Zook, Max Roach and Sam Morgan all had one goal and one assist in the second period.

Goucher attempted 23 of the 32 shots taken during the final 30 minutes and limited the Presidents to nine shots on goal all afternoon.

Morgan finished with three goals and four assists to lead GC, while Karl Wiszumerski played the first half in goal and made a pair of saves.

Jacob Succop stopped eight shots in the first half in goal and took the loss. Conor Crowe notched six saves during the second half.

W&J hosts Scranton next Saturday at 3:00 pm in another Landmark match.
