The men’s club lacrosse team continued their hot streak this past weekend, earning two more wins and running their record to 4-1 on the year.

On Friday, the ‘Jackets were scheduled to take on Niagara College. However, as game time drew near, Niagara’s team was nowhere to be found. UR waited, but the opposition never showed up. By rule, UR was credited with a win by forfeit, but no one was happy with the situation.

The game on Saturday against Carnegie Mellon University more than made up for the previous day’s disappointment. As has been the case many times this season, UR came out of the gate slowly, surrendering early goals that they simply could not get back in the first half. CMU was in control on both ends of the field, but they could not pull away from UR. As the teams headed to the locker rooms for halftime, the Yellowjackets trailed 5-3.

In the third quarter, the Yellowjackets’ offense started to get on track. UR scored four goals on seven shots in the quarter. Unfortunately, they surrendered four goals as well, which left them facing a two-goal deficit with one quarter of play remaining.

UR came out firing on all cylinders in the final quarter, scoring three goals in less than a minute. CMU took a timeout in an attempt to kill the Yellowjackets’ momentum, but it was to no avail. The ‘Jackets ended the game with five straight goals and came away with a 15-10 victory.

Junior attack Pat Wahl led the Yellowjackets with six goals and two assists. Senior midfielder Dave Ferris had four goals and four assists. Sophomore midfielder Julian Barron and senior long stick midfielder David Levi added two goals each.

Junior goalie Pat Braun played well between the pipes, making twelve saves for a .545 save percentage.

The Yellowjackets hit the road this weekend to take on Framingham State on Friday and Salem State on Saturday.

An open letter to all members of any university community

I strongly oppose the proposed divestment resolution. This resolution is nothing more than another ugly manifestation of antisemitism at the University.
