NCAA Div III Lacrosse: Colorado College Men’s Lacrosse Falls To #11 Washington College 10-7 On May 8 In First Round Of NCAA Tournament

Colorado College Mens' Lacrosse vs Washington College

Freshman goaltender Chase Murphy recorded a season-high 17 saves, but a six-goal deficit proved too much to overcome as Colorado College dropped a 10-7 decision at Washington College in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Wednesday afternoon.
Sophomore midfielder Henri Halle struck for three goals and added a pair of assists to fuel the Tigers’ comeback attempt. CC battled to within 8-6 midway through the third quarter and 10-7 when junior midfielder Jack Kreitler struck for his second tally with an even five minutes to play, but the Shoremen ran out the clock and hung on for the victory.
After Kreitler’s first marker knotted the score at 1-1, Washington scored four consecutive goals to build a 5-1 lead after 15 minutes. Halle found the net for the first time 1:44 into the second quarter, but the hosts countered with three straight goals and grabbed an 8-2 advantage after Jim Cusick scored with a two-man advantage with 6:17 remaining in the second quarter.
Senior attacker Steve Rijo buried a feed from Halle with 3:39 to go in the second quarter to give Colorado College a boost heading into halftime, and the Tigers notched the first three goals of the second half to make the score 8-6 with 6:47 remaining in the third quarter.
The Shoremen responded with a goal by Grant Hughes two minutes later, and then Bennett Cord struck for the second time with his team playing two men up to extend Washington’s lead to 10-6. It was one of three extra-man goals the hosts scored on the day.
Murphy made 12 saves during the first half when the Shoremen launched 29 shots. It marked the seventh time this season he stopped double-digit shots.
Freshman Tim Jenkins paced the defense with three caused turnovers, while junior midfielder Will Harris finished with four ground balls.
