Powered by a seven-point performance from senior Eric Law (Centennial, Colo.) the No. 11/11 University of Denver men’s lacrosse team defeated No. 8/12 Lehigh 18-10 on Saturday afternoon in the second game of the Frontier Airlines Face-Off Classic at Peter Barton Lacrosse Stadium. The win brings Denver’s record to 2-1, while Lehigh now sits at 2-1.
“We’ve been working hard all week,” said head coach Bill Tierney. “We asked the guys to come out and play hard this week and even though we made some of the same mistakes in the first half that we did last week, I thought we played much better in the second half. Once we got on a roll, it really got their confidence up and we really shot well today.” Freshman Gordie Koerber (Baltimore, Md.) tallied a career-high four goals and his second career hat trick, while Law finished with three goals and four assists for his seventh career hat trick. Sophomore Wes Berg (Coquitlam, B.C.) finished with his fifth career hat trick, second of the season, while senior Cameron Flint (Georgetown, Ontario) recorded two goals and two assists. Sophomore Eric Adamson (Anaheim Hills, Calif.) and junior Jeremy Noble (Orangeville, Ontatio) scored two goals apiece.
