from press release
GREENSBORO, N.C. – Chris Sisk scored
three goals and an assist in Guilford College’s 10-9
men’s lacrosse win over visiting Ferrum College Friday
afternoon in the Armfield Athletic Center.
The Quakers (2-0) held on against the first-year Panthers (0-2), who nearly erased two six-goal deficits. Guilford scored seven of the game’s first eight goals, but Ferrum slowly chipped away and pulled to within 9-7 after three quarters.
Guilford’s Chris Ashcraft scored with 9:36 left in the game off a Greg Nash feed to extend the Quakers’ lead to 10-7, but Ferrum answered again. The Panthers’ Ryan Higgins scored at the 4:26 mark. Teammate Eric Dorsey won the ground ball off the ensuing faceoff, took it in and beat Guilford goalie Mark Guillen 22 seconds later to make it a 10-9 contest.
The teams traded possession for the remainder of the game, but neither squad took a shot until Ferrum’s Dylan Burdick let one fly in the game’s waning seconds. Guillen stopped it for his eighth save of the game just before the final horn.
Guilford’s Ashcraft finished with two goals and an assist. Teammate Henry Farley contributed a goal and an assist. Guillen had a team-high six ground balls. James Stegeman had a career-high seven caused turnovers and picked up five ground balls.
David Rosenberger scored two goals and one assist to lead Ferrum. Kyle Downey also scored twice and Andrew Senft had a goal and two assists. Damian Pulos stopped eight shots in goal and had a game-high seven ground balls.
Guilford returns to action Feb. 27 against visiting Marywood at 1:00 p.m.
