Hampden-Sydney Lacrosse shook off a sluggish first half to outscore Greensboro 11-0 in the second half for a 16-2 win.

THE BASICS

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • Despite having a 38-7 shot advantage in the first half, strong ball stopping play from the Greensboro keeper along with several shots off the post or crossbar saw the Tigers leading just 5-2 after 30 minutes of play
  • The Tigers wasted little time asserting themselves to open the second half as Hunter Brown needed just 18 seconds to score, then Chandler Shaheen and Charlie Doetzer scored back-to-back at 12:40 and 12:26
  • Five other Tiger student-athletes would go on to score in the frame as Hampden-Sydney turned a 5-2 halftime lead into a 14-2 advantage after three quarters of play
  • H-SC would go on to substitute liberally in the 4th quarter as every healthy Tiger got to play as they added on two more goals and kept Greensboro off the scoreboard for the rest of the game
